Powerchair football in Scotland kicked off at the Craigholme Sports Complex in Glasgow in April 2010 at a pilot session involving just six players.The team started out as Glasgow City Powerchair but thanks to support and funding from Glasgow Sport, it evolved into Clyde Powerchair FC –
Clyde PFC decided to split the club into two teams for the 2015/16 season with the Cumbernauld teams continuing as Clyde PFC and the Craigholme clubs coming under Queen’s Park as one of their Community teams. The club decided to reduce the teams from 3 to just 2 as a number of players retired from the sport.
The season got off to a flyer with Queen’s Park Strollers winning the Scottish League Cup and Queen’s Park Spiders being the runners-
It was therefore decided, by the players themselves, to form a new club that would be recognised by funding bodies.
On the 24th May 2016, Glasgow Gladiators Powerchair Football Club was born.
