CLYDEBANK FC have entered the Scottish Cup for the first time in 20 years after being given a bye by the Scottish Football Association (SFA).

The team had their name drawn out today, August 12 as one of the 15 squads who are given an automatic bye into the first round of Scotland's most famous knock-out competition.

The news will be welcome to the Bankies and their fans after 20 years out of the competition, with their Scottish Cup game being a 1-0 loss to Stranraer on December 8, 2001.

Taking to Twitter, Clydebank FC posted: "Clydebank have received a bye in the Preliminary Round of the ScottishCup and go into the hat for round one. Happy with that one, Bankies?"

Scottish Cup Round One fixtures will take place after the prelimary rounds are complete, with fixture dates still to be confirmed.
