Clyde Shamrock

I've received an email asking if there was any connection between Clyde Shamrock (Glasgow Juvenile league) and Clyde FC. I am 100% certain there is no direct contact between the teams, however any information on Clyde Shamrock would be appreciated (I believe they played in Tollcross, Glasgow (maybe Germiston Park or Shamrock Park).

The email was from a relative of Ernest Danforth, who played for Clyde Shamrock (he is listed in the Clyde Shamrock team around Nov 1897), so the second part of my query is for any information on Ernest.

Fully appreciate this is a long-shot.

I do not know if this helps or hinders but In the Scottish Referee (19 November 1897) there is a Danforth in the Rosebank line-up to play against Clyde Shamrock. However, on that day Clyde Shamrock were also due to play Eastern Hibs in a Glasgow Juvenile Cup tie. So perhaps Clyde Shamrock had two teams as they appeared to play in both Glasgow and Cambuslang Juvenile competitions.
