Clydebank FC 2004s lifted their first piece of silverware last week after a nerve-wracking penalty shootout win over Cambuslang Reds in the Supplementary Cup final.

The Bankies youngsters booked their spot in this year’s final after overcoming West Dunbartonshire side Renton Craigandro and U15 A league side Summerston in the earlier rounds before battling back from two goals down to see off Scotstoun-based Glasgow Red Star 3-2 in tense semi-final.

Clydebank, who will move into the newly-redeveloped Holm Park later this summer, met fellow Glasgow and District Youth Football League U15s B side Cambuslang Reds in the final on Thursday with both teams playing out a 1-1 draw to send it to penalties.

With a healthy crowd of around 400 fans at Lochinch Playing Fields in Glasgow, the young Bankies side were cheered on by the senior Clydebank manager Kieran McAnespie, St Mirren star and local Clydebank professional Paul McGinn, a number of local councillors as well as MP Martin Docherty-Hughes.

Played in great spirit by two evenly-matches teams, the Bankies opened the scoring against the run of play just after the half-hour mark following a great move which was finished off by a neat finish in the box by Ross McGarvey.

Clydebank’s narrow lead saw them go in ahead at the break as they looked to double that advantage after the restart, going close on two separate occasions.

Despite being in the ascendancy, Clydebank failed to build on their lead as Cambuslang Reds levelled proceedings from close-range.

Both sides went in search of a winner in a hectic finish but neither could take their chances as it finished all square to take it to penalties.

Head coach Andy Findlay said: "I'm absolutely delighted with the attitude of the whole squad over the season - even when up against it.

"We couldn't have achieved this success without the other coaches and the support of the boys and their parents. I'm now looking forward to a few weeks well-deserved break after this week's training and a fresh new start at the end of July at Holm Park." 

A club spokesperson added: “The club would to thank head coach Andy Findlay, assistant coaches Michael and Daniel Hamilton and goalkeeping coach Owen Rafferty for their huge efforts over the season.

“Thanks to our sponsors Comply2 and the Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banking Group who helped make it happen.”
