Originally, the Club’s roots had been in football. Part of its legend was that it had introduced the beautiful game to these islands and had pioneered inter-territorial matches in its early years, to the extent where the Clydesdale, notwithstanding the fact that it has not fielded a team for almost 100 years, is still regarded as a member of Trinidad’s First Division. In truth, writing a history of the Clydesdale is almost a contradiction in terms, for it has no history in an academic sense. What it does possess, however, is a memory. As a club, collectively it remembers its glorious moments, its incredible happy times, its dramatic episodes and the extent to which it has provided a sense of comfort, support, and perhaps and most importantly escapism for some five generations of men who have made use of its Adamant.
