Nicky Little sealed his return to Clydebank one year after leaving for Pollock and the striker admitted he couldn’t be happier to be back at Holm Park.

Little was a fan favourite during his time with the white and reds as he grabbed more than 40 goals in two seasons as well as matching the record for goals in a season with 21 in the 2016/17 campaign.

The 26-year-old couldn’t quite find the same form at Lok as he managed seven goals in 34 appearances but he is full of confidence and is raring to go on his Bankies return.

He said: “I’m buzzing to be back. I did enjoy my year away but it was a bit indifferent. I’m just looking forward to getting the season going now.

“Our pre-season starts next week. My last game was just last Thursday so I only get a week break but I’m still looking forward to getting back in with the boys and training again.

“I’ll do some work before we start but I’m just looking forward to getting going again.”

Little hit prolific form in his first stint with the Bankies as he enjoyed his most successful seasons at Holm Park and the striker is relishing the chance to get back scoring in front of the Clydebank faithful while keeping an eye on that goals in a season record.

He added: “It’s always lovely to play for Clydebank.

"I’ve got a lot of good memories playing here so hopefully I can make a few more and get back to enjoying my football.

“I hope I can beat the goals in a season record but as long as I get a fair few I’ll be happy.

"There’s a lot of goal scorers in the team so as long as the team is doing well then I’m happy.”

Kieran McAnespie’s side finished 10th last season after successfully earning promotion back to the top flight and Little has set his sights on firing the side as far up the table as possible to mark a successful return.

He said: “I’m hoping we can improve from last season. You obviously want to finish as high up the table as possible.

"I know we’ve got a good team there with a good base and I’ve got a lot of experience playing in this league.

“We got promoted the year before and they finished 10th last season so with another year of experience in the league the only way is up.”
