An impressive start for the newly formed Wishaw BC 1999's

Written by 

In May/June 2014 four dads and their sons decided to try and form a new football team in Wishaw for the 1999 age group. 
They started with five a sides games between the dads and the boys with a few friends coming along for a kickabout. During the summer the numebers started to build and boys came from all over Lanarkshire to see what this newly forming team were all about. 
Trials were held and sponsorship was sourced. The side managed to gain membership into the Lanarkshire Football Development Association 'B' League and in early August the side registered their first four players. 
Steadily, the squad was built and there was an inclusion in coaching staff as the side gained a goalkeeping coach.
Who could have imagined that less than five months later this team would be sitting undefeated at the top of the league? 
2014 was certainly a very good year for this newly formed side and they will look forward to seeing what 2015 brings as they will look to clinch the league title and progress in local cups, as well as having their trip to Barcelona to look forward to.
