The Community Club A.G.M. was held last Thursday evening at the Creamery Park pavilion. We are pleased to announce that the proposed Executive Committee were elected and the club’s first ever constitution was approved. The minutes can be found here and the newly approved club Constitution can be found here.

Newly elected Chair Bobby Napier had the following to say.

“Since the first open meeting back in July 2012 there has been an enormous amount of work put in by both the individuals on the committee and several others in getting Bathgate Thistle Community Football Club to where we are now.

I hope that everyone can see the huge potential Bathgate Thistle Community Football Club has and the effect it can have on football in Bathgate. I would ask that everyone embraces the vision for the Club and how far we can progress.

The committee have set up a constitution, structure, role definition and set of procedures which will enable the Club to continually strengthen and develop.  There is a great range of skills and abilities on the committee and each founding member team is represented.  

It is imperative that we have support from everyone associated with the Club and an understanding that the committee will always act for the benefit of the whole Club.

I genuinely believe these are exciting times for football in Bathgate, right from kids up to the Juniors.”
