Clydebank U19s cruised into the quarter-finals of the Scottish Youth FA Cup on Saturday afternoon thanks to a stunning 7-0 win over Spartans.

The young Bankies travelled through to Edinburgh looking to bounce back from last weekend’s disappointing Regional Cup last 16 loss away to Dunipace.

And they did just that, starting on the front foot and never letting the hosts settle into the match.

Despite the bright start and enjoying the lion’s share of possession, the Bankies couldn’t quite find an early opener.

After a slight tactical alteration with Ben Bradshaw switching to the left and Adam Smith moving into the number 10 role, the visitors deservedly broke the deadline thanks to Robbie Russell who calmly side-footed it into the bottom corner.

That sent Clydebank on their way and they doubled their lead moments before the break.

On-form Connor Hamilton latched onto a neat through ball before firing home at the near post to hand his side a commanding lead.

Buoyed by their timely second before the interval, Clydebank’s attacking prowess came to the fore in a ruthless second-half performance with Spartans struggling to get any sort of grip on the game.

Bradshaw added Clydebank’s third five minutes after the restart to ease any concerns of a comeback with his second before sub Steven Collin’s grabbed a quickfire double of his own with two excellent finishes as the away side began to pull away.

Aiden Kearn’s showed some fantastic footwork to round the keeper for number six with Hamilton popping at the death to round off the scoring with his second of the day and 27th of the season.

A perfect response to their Regional Cup exit, Bankies are now just two games from a Scottish Cup and will now turn their attention back to league business this weekend.
