Clydebank manager Kieran McAnespie is to leave his role as first team manager due to work and family commitments.

McAnespie will depart the club after Saturday's (August 31) home game against Largs Thistle.

The 39-year-old joined the Holm Park side in January 2017, following the departure of Budgie McGhie after 13 years in charge.

At the time, McAnespie was announced along with new assistant manager Mark McCulloch, who subsequently left the role in December 2018 when he took up a new job, before being replaced by Sean Higgins.

A statement on the club's website said: "We’d like to put on record our thanks to Kieran for all his efforts, and wish him and his family all the very best for the future."

Prior to taking over the reins at Bankies, former Scotland Under 21 cap McAnespie took his first foray into the managerial world as a player-coach at fellow junior club Glenafton.

At Clydebank, the club won promotion back to the West Region Premiership during his first season in charge, before going on to lift the Sectional League Cup in November 2017.

Last season, they finished eighth in the top flight and reached the quarter-finals of the Scottish Junior Cup.

Their 2-1 away win over Kirkintilloch Rob Roy last weekend marked their first back-to-back league wins this season and saw them move up to 11th in the table.
