Clydebank’s Nicky Little feels like the club is on the cusp of something – and it won’t be easy to slow down when they get going.

The Bankies are set to join the new West of Scotland League set-up next season and returned to a redeveloped Holm Park last year.

The attacking midfielder signed a new contract in October and has told the Post how he feels comfortable at the club.

He said: “I think Clydebank has been midtable for too long. We’re a sleeping giant.

“Once this new senior league gets going then I think we should be looking up and we’ll be pushing towards the top of the table.

“We’ve got our new stadium, the senior league kicking off, which is where we’re supposed to be, the new management team in and a lot of other things that are happening. It feels like it might take a few years, but we might be on the cusp of something.

“Once it steam-rolls I think we’ll be hard to stop with the fanbase we’ve got and the size of the club.

“I get on with the fans, the board, the committee, the players and the management. It makes turning up on a Saturday easier. I feel comfortable and enjoy my football here.

“Clydebank is on the up and you could always go somewhere for more money but I wouldn’t enjoy my football as much.

“I would rather win something with Clydebank than be a squad player anywhere else. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

“I’m here until at least 2022. I’m enjoying it and I don’t see that changing.”

Little recently picked up four awards at the clubs virtual awards night after scoring 18 goals this season, taking his tally for the Bankies to 88.

One of his four awards was Players’ Player of the Year and the 28-year-old was delighted to see his teammates vote for him.

He said: “It does mean more to win that award because it’s the boys who are seeing you week in week out and at training.

“If you have a stinker on a Saturday then fans might remember that, but the players see throughout the whole season so it is a privilege.

“It’s something I’m proud of but you’d swap it in a heartbeat for the team prizes.

“I voted for Paul Byrne, who finished just behind me. He was consistent and was giving you at least seven and a half or eight out of ten every week.

“He’s a total pro at what he does and is someone that’s great to have around.”

And as for reaching the 100 goal landmark next season, Little added: “At the start of the season I always aim for ten and take it from there but next season I think I’ll need to aim for 12 just to make sure I get it. It would be a good achievement.”
