Today's Maryhill Talking Points
Maryhill Football Club are an association football team based in the Maryhill area of Glasgow, Scotland. Members of the Scottish Junior Football Association, they currently play in the West Region, Central District First Division.
Formed in 1884 as a Junior club, Maryhill were beaten finalists in the second ever Scottish Junior Cup in 1887–88 and turned senior the following season. The club entered the Scottish Cup three years running from 1888 but never got further than the second round, suffering 9–3 and 7–2 defeats to Third Lanark and Linthouse respectively in 1889 and 1890. Maryhill eventually returned to the Junior ranks in 1894 with some success, reaching four national cup finals in eight years. The Hill also won a wartime final in 1940.
Postwar they were not one of the bigger Junior clubs, but investment from a wealthy backer, (current Hamilton Accies owner Ronnie MacDonald) in the 1990s brought a period of success.
The team plays at Lochburn Park, although there is talk of a proposed move to a new ground in the future. Club colours are red and black. The team have been managed since October 2016 by John Hughes.Close
