Clydebank fans have reacted with anger after news the club's Scottish Cup tie away to Fort William is set to be moved over 100 miles further north.

The Bankies were drawn to face Fort William in the Scottish Cup preliminary round on September 2.

But the tie was thrown into doubt shortly after the draw due to a race up and down nearby Ben Nevis.

The North Caledonian League side's Claggan Park sits in the shadow of the UK's highest mountain and, on the same day, will see over 300 runners descend to the site to take part in the Ben Nevis Race.

It means the potential for traffic mayhem on the day and now the Holm Park side has said the tie is to be rearranged to be played in Golspie - roughly 118 miles away.

In a post on X, Clydebank wrote: "Subject to Scottish FA board ratification, Fort William have confirmed our Scottish Cup second preliminary round will be played at King George V Park - home of Golspie Sutherland FC.

"The tie will take place on Saturday 2 September, 3pm kick off."

It means an EIGHT-hour round trip across nearly 450 miles and Bankies fans were quick to let their feelings be known about the prospect.

One wrote: "Surely this will be rejected by the Scottish FA, that’s ridiculous."

Another said: "Terrible option for any Bankies fans wanting to make the trip, Clydebank to Fort William 95 miles, Fort William to Golspie 114 miles effectively more than double the journey!!

"Would be interesting to hear the logic behind this proposal?"

A third added: "An absolutely ludicrous decision."
