Club Info

Wishaw Juniors are a junior football club based in the former heavy industrial town of Wishaw, North Lanarkshire.

We currently compete in the West Division league one in what is effectively the third of four tiers within the West Region.

The club traces its origins back to the mid 1880s and a team called Wishaw Thistle. At that point in the development of football there were no Leagues and football clubs played challenge matches against other clubs or in Cup competitions.

Wishaw moved into their current home “The Beltane” at the beginning of season 2011-12. Originally just an open public pitch, the Club’s enthusiastic small committee has managed to develop The Beltane into a mini stadium despite only having a very modest budget. The ground is fully fenced off and offers a mixture of hard and grassed standing accommodation for c1,000 persons with Ladies and Gents toilets, Snack Bar, Hospitality Facility, a covered wheelchair viewing platform and a small covered enclosure for 50/60 persons.

The Beltane was opened on 28 July 2012 with a match against a Motherwell F.C XI
