Goldenhill Amateurs manager Stevie Dock insists his side will give it their all to bring the trophy back to Clydebank after they booked their spot in the Scottish Amateur FA Cup final.

Dock’s men will take on Shortlees AFC in a Hampden Park showdown on May 20 after seeing off Bridgewater AFC 1-0 in the semi-final at New Douglas Park on April 24.

The only goal came on the half-hour mark when the ball was dinked past the on-rushing Bridgewater keeper, who had come out to the edge of the box.

It fell into the path of Goldenhill’s Jamie Gallagher who then proceeded to side-foot into an empty net from close-range.

Hundreds of teams compete in the nationwide knockout competition every year and Dock said he was delighted his side have made it to the final.

Dock said: “We are over the moon. We were not too confident, but we thought we had a good chance of winning it on the night because we played well in the first half, although not so much in the second half. 

“They were unlucky not to score and we rode our luck a bit, but we got there in the end.

“It was a bit of a relief after nine rounds to get there. At first it was joy and then in the dressing room, it was more relief to finally get over the final hurdle.”

Shortlees defeated Bannockburn AFC at New Douglas Park the night before Goldenhill’s match to seal their spot in the final.

Goldenhill previously lost to the Ayrshire outfit in the West of Scotland Amateur Cup final two years, but Dock is adamant his side will be more prepared this time. 

He added: “We played Shortless two years ago in the West of Scotland final. They beat us 2-1, but we will me more ready this time. 

“I think there are the favourities, but we will give our all to make sure we bring back the cup to Clydebank. Confidence has been really good the last few weeks.”
