Clyde F.C. was formed in 1877 and played at Barrowfield on the banks of the River Clyde. The team entered the Scottish Cup for the first time in that same year, but fell at the first hurdle. In 1891 the team joined the Scottish Football League and won 10-3 in its first ever Scottish League match. Soon the facilities at Barrowfield proved to be inadequate for league football and in 1899 the team moved across the river to Shawfield. In 1994 the team moved to Cumbernauld after several years of ground sharing, a move which lost the team many of its traditional supporters. Clyde achieved mixed success in the early league seasons, eventually dropping to the second tier. Despite several runner-up and top of the table finishes, the team did not return to the top flight until 1906 due to the lack of automatic promotion and relegation. The 1908-09 season was the season that really established Clyde as a force in Scottish football; they finished third in the league and reached the semi final of the Scottish Cup. Clyde has won the Scottish Cup on three occasions and been runner-up on three further occasions. The team has had a roller coaster ride of promotion and relegation throughout its history.
