Clydebank’s Chris Black believes he can see himself seeing out his career at the club after it was announced he would be staying for the 2020/21 campaign.

The 27-year-old signed a two-year deal at the Bankies last season and, after talks with manager Gordon Moffat, was keen to see out the remainder of the contract at the very least.

The midfielder was relieved to hear that he was part of Moffat’s plans as he is loving life at the Holm Park side and is excited by the squad Moffat is building.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “Gordon has done great on and off the park.

“When it came to end of the season I didn’t know if he wanted me to stay. Even though I had signed a two-year deal, if he’d wanted me to move on then I would have to have done that.

“He phoned me a few weeks ago and was saying he could see me in his team next year, and it’s exactly what I was wanting to hear.

“I said to Gordon on the phone that it’s a team that I can see myself playing out my career at.

“I’m only 27 but the team is getting better and with the signings that I’m hearing about I’m really excited, especially going into the new league.”

After three impressive years at the Bankies, Black is keen to improve his game further. He added: “Last year under [former manager] Kieran McAnespie I was playing right midfield, centre midfield, in the hole and I was kind of all over the place and before he left I said to him that I wanted to cement a position.

“I had been centre midfield my whole career and that’s where I wanted to play, and Kieran did start me there.

“Gordon must have seen something whether it was my fitness or ability but I’m a box to box midfielder and I can get up and down the pitch.

“The only thing I want to add to my game is goals. I scored goals at previous clubs and then it’s just not happened here yet. I’m enjoying every bit but I would like to find the score sheet more.”

The Bankies have joined the new West of Scotland League setup ahead of next season and Black admits that there’s an exciting feeling at the club.

He said: “The club’s got big plans going forward. Looking at all the youth players coming through, it is a very exciting time, and one of the best things is all the boys can feel it.

“We’re all talking about going into this new league. Now it’s been confirmed, every one of us cannot wait.”
