THE Indodrill Stadium will host competitive football every single weekend for the next two years, with the arrival of Lowland League football in Alloa.

BSC Glasgow have struck a deal to play their home games in Alloa, as they look to secure more permanent accommodation near the city's West End.

Started twelve years ago as a community sports club for kids, the group has grown to incorporate around 700 youngsters in a variety of teams.

Two years ago they were offered the chance to enter a team into the Scottish Lowland Football League, as it became part of the football pyramid system in the country.

But at the start of this season they had been searching for a new home park – with Alloa Athletic opening their doors this summer.

Stephen Prince, chairman and co-founder of BSC Glasgow, told the Advertiser: "We have always been a community sports club with a strong philosophy of developing young talent.

"We first formed twelve years ago but in 2014 we had the opportunity to apply for membership in the lowland league with which was our first ever adult team.

"We don't have our own stadium or anything so we moved into Maryhill Juniors. But it wasn't sustainable – the pitch was often flooded and we had a lot of games put off last year.

"Though we do still have an ambition to play in Glasgow, we were given the opportunity to come to Alloa and everyone has been fantastic.

"It is a great stadium, with a great town, and is only 35 minutes away from the west end of Glasgow."

So far BSC have won four points from their three games at the Indodrill this season, picking up their first victory last Saturday against Hawick.

And the club chairman has been blown away by welcome they have been given by club officials at Alloa FC.

"It's our home away from home," he said. "And I'm not blowing smoke when I say that Alloa is such a fantastic club, with great people running it.

"The pitch is great as well and I think one or two Alloa fans have already come along to see us.

"I think the appetite for football here has grown as Alloa are doing so well. And not that we can take credit for that, but someone did say to me that they haven't lost a game since we've been here.

"Joking aside, we feel very lucky to be here for the next two seasons. We can't speak highly enough about Alloa as a club. And whatever happens with BSC Glasgow in the next few years, we'll always remember Alloa for what they have done."

Tickets are normally priced at £7 for entry; however, Alloa fans are being offered a discount card to gain entry for £5.

Concession tickets are fixed at £2, while children are free to enter the game.

Mr Prince added: "Obviously, we would never want to encourage people to stop going away to see Alloa play.

"But what I would say is that those who can't make the Wasps' away game, and are feeling at a lose-end, then they can come along and see us.

"The standard of football is high; I think we'd give most second division sides a game and, maybe on our day, some first division sides.

"And I know a lot of people would agree that Saturday is for for football. What else are you going to do?"

Discount cards are available the kiosk at the stadium and at the Advertiser office.

The next home game for the club will be the visit of Spartans on August 27, before facing a trip to Stirling University the following Wednesday.
