BSC Glasgow are just hours away now from the biggest game in their history- and it will be a huge moment for the club according to general manager George Fraser.
The Lowland League side will take to Scottish Cup action tomorrow afternoon for a potential cup classic. They take on Premiership heavyweights Hibs at the Indodrill for a remarkable quarter-final berth.
Of course the odds are stacked against them. Of course the majority of Scottish football fans are expecting Hibs to win at a canter. Of course it should be Hibs in the next round.
But BSC have nothing to lose, nothing to fear and everything to gain from this tie. The club being displayed on the BBC provides a platform, with this match set to be a game-changer for the club financially too.
On the park it is likely that Hibs will prevail victorious. But BSC can take pride from their fairytale adventure so far, knowing that it’s a defining moment in their short history, having only formed in 2016.
“It’s a huge undertaking for us,” says Fraser. “In terms of logistics, we’ve had Beith Juniors, Auchinleck Talbot, but nothing of this magnitude. This is our first big test if you like in terms of organising a major game.
“Financially it’s huge for us in terms of the running of the club. Ultimately we want to get our own facilities in Glasgow so we’re hoping it goes towards achieving that goal. We want to get back to Glasgow, we’re playing in Alloa just now.
“It isn’t ideal in terms of building a fanbase. Even the publicity surrounding the tie and our plight even, if you want to call it that, might even attract someone in Glasgow to come and help us.
“It might allow us to put down some roots somewhere. It’ll bring exposure to the playing staff, it might get them a move, maybe even the manager. You can bundle it all up and say it’s a massive game for the club in general, in all aspects.
“We’ve got nothing to lose. We’ll turn up, enjoy the day and see what happens. Nobody is expecting us to do anything, if we lose it’ll be expected. If we get a draw or get a win, well, the Indodrill may be open as a bar, something like that!
“I don’t know if I’m nervous, I’m just looking forward to the day. We’re playing a top six Premiership team. We’re under no illusions, we’ll enjoy the day and the moment. I won’t be down if worse comes to worse.”
