Clydebank boss Kieran McAnespie says his side are in a ‘good place’ after booking their spot in the quarter final of the Scottish Cup by hammering Girvan 7-1 away on Saturday.

Nicky Little and Del Hepburn grabbed braces while goals from Ross Alexander, Jordan Shelvey and Declan Fitzpatrick helped set up an away tie against last year’s finalists Hurlford United.

McAnespie said: “That was one of the best performances we’ve had in a long, long time from a discipline and professionalism perspective.

“To a man, they knocked their pan in and just did everything right.

“They moved the ball quickly and, while we knew the pitch would be bobbly, that didn’t stop us going about our business.

“Going forward, we’re electric with the pace we have. Their weak point was pace at the back so we utilised our strength to get them that way.

“To score seven goals in any game is phenomenal - we’re disappointed in the goal we lost, but that’s me being pernickety.

“Every one of them was outstanding and you only need to look at our squad to see how strong it is.

“It’s good to see the goals spread amongst the boys and seeing them just play with a smile on their faces.

“Even with the boys who are being left out, they’re all working hard to make sure we achieve what we want to achieve this season which is doing well in both the Scottish as well as the league.”

Bankies sit second behind Hurlford in the West Premiership and the win sees them take on the Ayrshire side - who they’ve yet to beat this season - in the last eight on Saturday, February 23.

McAnespie added: “They really are a top team. They’ve been sitting top of the league for most of the season and got to the final last year - neither of them are coincidences.

“They’re so strong and organised - so we know it’s going to be tough.

“We’ll prepare as we have done, we’ll do our due diligence to make sure we’re in the best position going forward and try and get ourselves in the semi final.”
