Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat hailed the progress made by his side this season as their campaign came to an end last week.

The Bankies completed their league season on Saturday May 14 with defeat at Largs Thistle before exiting the West of Scotland Cup in a narrow loss at Pollok two days later.

The Newlandsfield defeat brought to an end a long campaign for the Holm Park side – and despite not having any silverware to show for their efforts, Moff says there are plenty of positives to take from the season after the club secured its highest league position since 2013-14 and went on a memorable run to round four of the Scottish Cup.

The Bankies boss admits he won’t be getting too carried away and has his targets set on cutting the gap to the sides that finished above him next season.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “We could have nicked third but you can see the top two broke away a wee bit.

“At the same time, if you look at the gap between Pollok and ourselves, and then the gap to fifth, there’s a 10-point gap to a group of really good teams.

“So as much as we’re certainly not going to pat ourselves on the back for finishing fourth, it has been good progress when you look at the gap to the likes of Hurlford and Kilwinning, so that is a real positive.”

Clydebank have continued their squad building for the coming season with the announcement of three new contract extensions at the club.

Left-back Oisin McHugh, who came through the development squad at the club and has gone on to make 33 appearances over the last four seasons, defender Kevin Green, who arrived from St Cadoc’s last summer, and forward Hamish McKinlay, who joined from Auchinleck Talbot prior to this season and went on to score nine goals in the 2021-22 campaign, have all committed their futures to the club by signing one-year deals.

Leaving Holm Park is another academy graduate in the shape of Matt McLean.

The defender spent five seasons in the senior side at the Bankies after coming through the ranks, winning the Under-19 Scottish Cup and making 95 first-team appearances but has decided his future lies elsewhere due to work commitments.

Posting to his personal Twitter feed, McLean said: “Want to wish @Clydebankfc all the best next season, it has been some season with a great bunch a boys. Been a great five years with the club but due to work commitments I can’t sign on.

“Would like to thank @Moffstovoi [boss Moffat’s Twitter handle] and the rest of the club for my time at this great club.”
