Clydebank player manager Kieran McAnespie has held contract talks with the remaining members of the Bankies squad.

Josh Lumsden, Jamie Darroch and Jordan Shelvey signed new deals at the Player of the Year event on Friday.

Alan Vezza has verbally agreed to stay, and looks to sign his deal in the near future.

However Peter McGill, Robbie Halliday and Stevie Young will leave the club, after not being offered new deals after speaking to the players on Monday night.

The manager has also organised for Nicky Little and Mark Burbidge to spend pre-season training with senior clubs Stenhousemuir and Stirling Albion respectively.

And McAnespie thinks both can play at a higher level, with rumours Little was set to join junior side Pollok.

He said: “He[Nicky]’s more than capable of playing at that level, and that’s no disrespect to Pollok but I think he’s better than at this level.

“He’s got the attributes, if he doesn’t get anything from Stenny he’s entitled to play wherever he feels more comfortable.

“Bubba [Mark Burbidge] has been invited to pre-season with Stirling Albion.

“I’ve said to them the door is always open to them here at Clydebank if they want to stay at junior level, but I think the two of them from what we’ve seen at this level are more than capable and have the attributes to go and play at senior.

“Ultimately I can only give advice and it’s down to them, and they’ll get that opportunity towards the end of June and July.”

The Bankies manager was delighted the players were having a go at earning a senior football deal.

And he would like the club to be seen by players as a great place to make the step up with the manager and assistant Marc McCulloch’s contacts.

He added: “That’s the way I want to try and see and create Clydebank.

“If we can get good young players coming to Clydebank and enjoying their football, and not necessarily earn lot of money.

“But they will see the fact that if they have a season at Clydebank and do really well, that they can an opportunity at senior.

“They’ll see that we have contacts and they will have a chance at going to play at Senior level.

“I want to attract players that have an ambition to play at Senior level, to allow them to come and train with us, play for us and get an opportunity to go and play senior level.”
