Si Ferry to exit managerial role as ex-Celt’s project set to end

Former Celtic midfielder Simon Ferry is set to exit his role as Open Goal Broomhill Head Coach at the end of the season. Ferry was the figurehead behind an ambitious overhaul to the West End club as the Glasgow side rebranded in the colours of the popular podcast and moved their games to Broadwood.

Ferry attracted Paul Slane, Kirk Broadfoot, Derek Lyle and Broque Watson to the club as they looked to take the Lowland League by storm. However, they currently sit 11th in the division with 13 wins, six draws and 12 defeats from their 31 games thus far.

Now Ferry will leave at the end of this campaign with Slane and Lyle set to depart too. The move was billed as being revolutionary for lower-league football with the podcasters looking to transfer their popularity online with a presence at a grassroots level. It was certainly an interesting experiment but one that was unlikely to achieve the ambitious goals set out at the start.

Our Celtic B team is still challenging alongside The Spartans and theRangers B team for the Lowland League title but sadly for Si Ferry and his staff they’ve not been able to turn Broomhill into challengers in their one and only season in charge.
