Clydebank FC are aiming to return to senior football after the club’s trust voted heavily in favour of the move.

The United Clydebank Supporters, who are the majority shareholders of the club, held a ballot with 86% voting in favour of a move to join the Scottish FA pyramid.

The Bankies have previously been a senior side, but have competed in junior football’s West Region since 2003.

A club statement said: “UCS Trust members have voted to seek to return Clydebank FC to senior football.

"The ballot resulted in 86% in favour of applying to join a league within the Scottish FA pyramid.

"The UCS board will now look at different options before a meeting of all members in the near future.”

No timeframe has been set for the move, but the club would likely need to join the East of Scotland Football League or the South of Scotland Football League, the lowest tiers in Scottish FA pyramid.

If the Bankies were to aim to join the senior ranks for next season they would need to act soon, with deadlines for membership for both leagues happening soon.

The East of Scotland FL’s deadline for clubs applying is March 31, while the South of Scotland FL’s last date for applications is April 30.
