A CHEEKY Clydebank football team remain hopeful they could face one of Scottish football’s big guns after offering to play the SPFL outfit in a friendly match.

Amateur side Clydebank Amateurs informed Dundee United they were available if they fancied it following the Tannadice team’s 2-1 Viaplay Cup defeat to Partick Thistle.

The tongue-in-cheek message even advised they had a pitch and a referee ready to go.

Tuesday night’s loss at home to Thistle followed on from Jim Goodwin’s side’s woeful performance against SPFL newsboys Spartans – the Edinburgh team winning 1-0 in their first-ever game as an SPFL league club.

And the Greater Glasgow Premier League Bankie team – who are affiliated with the town’s WoSFL club - appeared to be confident about their chances against the recently relegated SPFL Championship side, who this time last year were gearing up for European football.

In a Tweet underneath the Dundee United Twitter page posting Tuesday’s result, Clydebank Amateurs wrote: “Alright lads just wondering if yous fancy a friendly?

“We’ve got a park and ref booked.”

Some had faith that the Saturday afternoon amateur team would prevail in any match-up, given the recent form of the two teams.
