dbo:abstract
  • Blantyre Celtic Football Club were a Scottish football club that played under the auspices of the Scottish Junior Football Association. Formed in 1914 as Blantyre United, they changed their name to Blantyre Celtic two years later. Their home ground was near Springwell in Blantyre and they had as local rivals Blantyre Victoria, known locally as the Vics. In many ways they were the poorer cousin, as they existed in a poorer area of the village and lacked the financial support that the Vics gained from having a large social club attached to their home ground.The club reached the semi-finals of the Scottish Junior Cup three times: (1923–24, 1937–38 and 1945–46) but lost on each occasion.Between 1982–1986, their Craighead Park ground was also used by the Glasgow Tigers speedway team as their home track.Blantyre Celtic played in green and white hoops, identical to those of their namesake Celtic. Their most famous player was Jimmy Johnstone.In 2010, the club reformed as an amateur team in the Blantyre area. (en)
