Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat insists getting his recruitment right this summer is vital.

The Bankies boss has so far brought in four new faces to Holm Park as he targets to build on back-to-back fourth-placed finishes in the Premier Division of the West of Scotland Football League.

Thomas Collins, Callum Graham, James Grant and Kieran Hughes have all signed for the club and Nicky Low has penned a new contract to extend his stay as a Clydebank player.

Despite the season-ending last month, Moff has remained hard at work when it comes to adding to his squad and thanked club chair Grace McGibbon for her backing.

Speaking to the Clydebank Post, he said: “The month of downtime away from training and matches is my busiest four weeks of the year really. You’re never really off the phone.

“The players have enjoyed their well-earned break but for me, it’s just been foot to the floor in terms of getting the recruitment because I felt we got off on the wrong foot because of that last season, we didn’t quite hit the targets we wanted which is just one of those things that can happen.

“We’ve done better this year and it’s been down to the club with Grace supporting me and finding a wee bit of extra resource to get some guys in the door.

“I’m happy with what we’ve done so far and there will probably be one or two more to come.

“Thomas and Callum are experienced players at this level now so I’m really happy with those two in terms of firepower.

“James coming in from Open Goal is still a young man but he played pretty much every game in the Lowland League last season so he has some good experience from that and gives us a bit of competition now at full-back and Kieran has good experience at this level and is a really good addition.

“Nicky Low you would probably class as a new signing as well, getting him in permanently has been a huge boost considering the options he had on the table. I’m really pleased he has decided to play with us this season.

“We’ve plugged the holes in the squad where I felt we needed extra competition or extra quality, there will maybe be one more and two at absolute maximum but we’re pretty much there.”

Bankies returned to training over the last week with a gruelling double session on Saturday as they gear up for the friendlies beginning on July 1.

Moff admits he had no fears about his players finding themselves out of shape over the month-long break and was keen to get his players on the ball on their first day back.

He added: “Even if my guys did nothing for four weeks, I would be fine with, but I know that very few of them do nothing, they all come back in reasonable shape.

“It’s changed days and that’s probably one that has changed for the better, guys are at the gym and doing their own thing and do mini pre-seasons with professional people which is good.

“They come back in pretty good shape so it’s normally just a two or three-week tune-up in terms of their fitness levels and then it’s all on the balls.

“Outwith our session on Saturday we don’t really do any old school pre-season, everything else is done with the ball. It’s intense and hard work but we like to involve the ball in pretty much everything we do.”
