New Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat refused to take the credit as Clydebank ran out 1-0 winners away to Glenafton Athletic in his first game in charge on Saturday.

Moffat was in the dugout for the trip to Loch Park but was adamant that assistant Sean Higgins should take the plaudits for the well-deserved victory.

He said: “I thought it was a right good, gritty, workmanlike performance. I said to the players there that in terms of me watching my first game, looking at effort, workrate and heart, I can’t fault them.

“In terms of what I’ll be looking for going forward, in quality and composure, I’ve got work to do there but I can work with that sort of effort all day long.

“I think it’s only right Sean Higgins gets the credit for the result because he’s prepared the boys and had the majority of the say in the team. He’s been really professional and I’m delighted for him.

“I said I wouldn’t encroach too much, but I had to go in the dugout just to give Sean a bit of a hand. Gary McMenamin and Drew Marshall took a back step today, and I tried to stand back, but you get caught up in it and at the end of the day it’s my job to try and correct things.

Clydebank Post:

“I thought Marc Waters was excellent. His handling and his kicking was superb and everything I’d look for in a keeper. Matt McLean was superb and, along with Jamie Darroch, did everything I asked.”

Moffat officially takes charge this week and the former Bankies captain admits he’s excited for what lies in store.

He added: “It’ll take time. It might take two, three or even four weeks for them to see my style and how we should play in certain situations with shape and some stuff. As I say, I can work with that.

“If they weren’t fighting for each other, that would be a worry, but they’ve given everything. There’s plenty of improvements we can make, so it’s exciting.”
