Bankies who follow the Bankies have had a certain date marked in their calendar since September 24.

Yes, ever since the 7-0 triumph in Dalkeith, the Clydebank faithful have been counting down the days until the next instalment of their Scottish Cup adventure.

This year’s competition has certainly tested the commitment of many, with the two previous rounds sending the supporters to all corners of Scotland, with Dalkeith following on from a trip to the Highlands to face Fort William.

Well, this round is no different and the wait is nearly over as the Holm Park side heads to Ellon, in Aberdeenshire to take on Formartine United.

Bus organiser Fred McCosh told the Clydebank Post: "I need to thank Gary Bell at the Lovat for his continued support of the bus.

"He really has helped with all these away trips.

"Your next story will be how the Bankie bus has gone bust if we go through and get another away trip."

Here, is a reminder of the pick-up times for the long journey to the northeast of the country.

10am - Old Kilpatrick
