Clydebank manager Kieran McAnespie wants one more striker to add to the squad before the league campaign starts.

The Bankies boss added Chris Dooley to the squad, the defender has been on trial with the Holm Park side for the last few weeks.

Dooley is from Clydebank, and one of McAnepsie’s aims for new signings was to add more local blood to the team.

He said: “We said when we came in ideally we want to get more local boys in if we can, as it means more to them, there’s a good few that are from Clydebank.

“When he first came in he had a chest infection, so we knew his fitness wouldn’t be great. But over the last few weeks he’s been showing us great attitude in training and he’s a very tenacious defender which is great.

“He’s still young which is good, he’s got a little bit to learn with positional sense and we’ll do that, we’ll help him with that, but his attitude has been spot on.

“It’s good to get him on board, it adds a bit of competition to the squad, especially at right-back with him and Jamie so it’s all starting to take shape up.”

Clydebank currently have two strikers on their books, but with Ciaran Lafferty out injured with a thigh strain, they have been reliant on Jordan Shelvey in recent weeks.

McAnespie added: “We’ve still got to find that last striker.

“We’ve got Laff (Ciaran Lafferty) who’s still to come back, and Jordan who’s absolutely flying, but we can’t rely on him all the time.

“We’re wrapping Laff in cotton wool just now as it’s important for him to get a full season of football underneath his belt, just because he’s had little niggles and he’s not had a full season.

“I’ve said to him that you don’t get to Celtic under-20s by being rubbish, it tells me for his age group he’s one of the best, and I’m particularly concious of getting him fit for the start of the season.

“I’ve got two very good strikers but I need to be wary if I bring in another top striker that I need to keep them all happy, so it’s trying to find that balance.”
