Conor Lynass put in a five-star performance as Clydebank continued their preparations for the competitive season with a comfortable win over St Peter’s.

The 26-year-old scored five times in the 11-1 victory, while Ross McPherson got four and Lee Gallacher and Hamish McKinlay also found the net on Saturday.

Lynass’ first came when Nicky Little beat the offside trap and set up his teammate to finish from close range with the visitors only goal of the afternoon coming shortly after as a free-kick was headed into the net.

The former Clyde man rounded the keeper to put the Bankies back ahead before McPherson got his first with an arrowed strike into the top corner.

Gordon Moffat’s side were relentless and won the ball straight from the resulting kick-off with Little again teeing up Lynass, this time with a defence splitting pass, and he knocked the ball past the onrushing goalkeeper.

The pick of the goals came through Lynass as he beat his man on the left before cutting in and curling the ball into the corner as the hosts went into the break 5-1 ahead to secure his hat-trick.

McPherson got the scoring in the second half underway when he capitalised on a weak back pass and Lynass added seven with a left footed strike.

Goal number eight came through McPherson as the veteran got his hat-trick when he poked the ball underneath the goalkeeper and he tapped home nine.

McKinlay got his first goal in a Bankies shirt when he made it double figures with a powerful header and Gallacher got in on the act to complete the scoring with a low strike into the corner.

Moffat learned this week that his side will start their Premier Division campaign against Auchinleck Talbot on July 17 - and the Bankies boss is optimistic that an exciting season lies ahead.

Speaking to the Post, he said: “We’ve got an amazing league next year, fingers crossed we get through it, and it’s going to be a brilliant campaign.

“I’ve gone out with my backroom team and targeted players in specific areas and we wanted to build on what we were doing last season.

“I think we’re well equipped to go and do ourselves justice and we can go and do that now.

“I’m really happy with what we’ve done and our prime focus is getting ready for July 17.”
