Clydebank manager Gordon Moffat believes he and his players are 'good to go' ahead of Saturday's big kick-off of the new season.

In an exclusive chat with the Clydebank Post, the boss revealed he has set himself personal targets for the year ahead rather than put down aims for his players.

And he insists the team will need to build on last season's fine home form as they look to push on from two top-four finishes in the last two campaigns.

Moff said: “I'm not really big in laying down the law to the guys in terms of saying this is the target.

“But we know there is an expectation there from the fans, that’s just always there, it has been there since I played for the club.

“We need to be able to manage that pressure and deal with it.

“I think our home form last year was very good so we will look to try and build on that and do something similar this season and that will stand us in good stead.”

Despite not setting his squad any specific targets, that doesn't mean he doesn't have his own, the driven manager explaining he has lofty ambitions for this term.

He went on: “I am quite ambitious and aggressive in terms of what I want to do, and I want to improve again.

“That's the target for me.

“That’s my personal drive but I am sure the players are keen to do that as well.”

The Bankies welcomed new signings during the summer in the form of James Grant, Thomas Collins, Callum Graham and goalkeeper Kieran Hughes.

And, although happy with the minutes in the legs rather than some of the results during pre-season, the boss hinted he may not be finished dipping into the transfer market.

“We are looking ready," the head coach continued.

“Our fitness levels are very good.

“We looked at that in a bit more detail this week in training and very much where I would like us to be.”

Before adding: “In the main, the bulk of the squad are ready and had good minutes in them in pre-season.

“So, we are good to go now and glad to be starting the real stuff.

"And possibly one or two more will maybe come as we go into the early weeks of the season.”

The Bankies will begin the new campaign at Holm Park for the first time since 2019 and face a newly-promoted Benburb side who return to the WoSFL Premier at the first time of asking.

And Moff expressed he is aware his side faces a stern first test.

He finished: “Very tough test, newly promoted team but obviously bounced straight back from the year before.

“Paul Lovering is a guy I know well. I competed against him a lot with my Rossvale team.

“He sets his teams up very strong, they are always very organised and aggressive.

“We will need to go and match a lot of that and get the ball down and play at pace and a bit of quality to make sure we get off to a good start.

“I am looking forward to it.”
