Football players stepped in after their club’s facilities were severely damaged during Storm Isha.

The storm – which tore through the UK on Sunday night - caused some serious damage across Glasgow with fences caved in, car windows smashed, and fallen trees blocking rail tracks, streets and main roads.

Glasgow United FC, based in Shettleston, also fell victim to the storm when their roof was blown off.

Thanks to 21-year-old Cody Kerr, and a teammate, the roof has now been temporarily repaired.

Glasgow Times:

Cody, who has been with the team on-and-off since he was 17, said: “We’ve managed to repair the roof temporarily - just for the night.

“A picture was sent into the football chat and me and all the boys were just so shocked.

“So, me and another player, Ryan Francis, decided to come down to help repair the roof.”

Cody admitted that it feels ‘really good’ to be able to help the team, despite the devastating event.

He added: “It’s good to be able to help the team.

“The team and coaches seemed happy that we were able to help.

“It feels really good.”

Glasgow Times:

Iain Orr, assistant coach, spoke to the Glasgow Times on Monday morning and described the damage as ‘the biggest blow that has ever happened’ to the club.

Along with the roof, the pavilion (which houses the changing rooms) and the pitch will also need extensive work after parts of the roof fell onto the main road and pieces of it onto the pitch.

The changing rooms have also been left unfit to use, Iain said.

Glasgow Times:

The club is now left wondering how they will fund the rest of the extensive repairs.

Iain said: “It’s absolutely devastating, gutting. A lot of work goes into maintaining a football club and these are things that just set you back tenfold.

“The cost of this is going to be quite a lot. How we will fund this, we really don’t know.

“This is the biggest blow that has happened to us."

The team is looking to get the rest of the repairs done ahead of their next home game on February 3.

Storm Isha is still causing some problems across the city today, as a lot of rail services remain affected.

Routes on the Cathcart Circle, Glasgow Queen Street and Newton lines were just some that did not run this morning.
