Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat is eager to return to training this week after confirming the first of his summer transfer dealings.

The club have announced the signings of Adam Hodge, Kevin Green and Liam Harris as they prepare to meet up for their first full-contact session since last year.

Right-back Hodge joins from Hurlford United whilst central defender Green arrives following his departure from St Cadoc’s.

Local teenager Harris was on loan at the Holm Park side last year from Hamilton Academical and has now completed a permanent move.

Moff is now looking forward to seeing the new faces join up with the rest of the squad at training this week after a long period away from football.

Speaking to the Post, the Bankies boss said: “We’re planning to start back on Thursday so we’ll have a break in session and we’ve then got a double session on the Saturday.

“We’ve had guys meeting in various locations in groups of four just doing wee bits of exercise to keep them ticking over with some preparation work until we come in.

“We’re all looking forward to it and it’s not too long now which is good.

“We could have gone and started on May 17 but I’ve done what I normally do which is take the league start date and work back from that in terms of what I want and how many games and sessions I want.

“This time we probably wanted a week or two extra but we’re absolutely fine in terms of time scale and we’ll be prepared.”

Clydebank’s pre-season fixtures, which kick-off on June 12, will see them face their development team, St Peters, Johnstone Burgh, Cumbernauld Colts, Glasgow University and Dalbeattie Star, as well as one other team that is yet to be announced.

He added: “We’ve got seven games planned including our first game which is just an intra-squad friendly between the development team and ourselves and then we’ve got six friendlies on the back of that.

“There’s a good mix of games, there’s a couple of games against Lowland League opposition and hopefully one away from home against an SPFL team and a mixture of conference teams and amateurs in there. Similar to last year it’s a good mix and we’ll have a few different tests in there.”
