Clydebank Under 19s have progressed to the fifth round of the Scottish Cup after seeing off Stenhousemuir 4-1 on Sunday afternoon.
Man of the match Kevin McNaught scored a hattrick and assisted the fourth on a fantastic afternoon for the hosts.
A frantic opening few minutes saw neither side able to settle into their respective rhythms, with only Stenhousemuir testing Clydebank goalkeeper Paul McKenna with a free kick that the young stopper did well to hold.
Clydebank, setting out in a 4-4-2 formation, were forced into making an early substitution that saw Jordan Campbell replace Sean Stewart. With that in mind, Bankies changed to a 4-5-1 with Kevin McNaught the lone striker.
On ten minutes it was McNaught who was to open the scoring. A wonderful through ball from Cameron Morgan played McNaught in and he delicately lobbed the onrushing Stenny goalkeeper Vic Nelson to break the deadlock for the Bankies.
The Warriors almost found their way back into the match within a minute of going behind. Andy Grimshaw was about to pull the trigger when Clydebank defender Ross Smith’s last ditch challenge saved his side.
Clydebank appeared to grow in confidence and they could’ve had a second on twenty four minutes. Calum Allardyce - whose delivery was fantastic all afternoon - whipped a fantastic ball in from the right and Morgan flashed his header narrowly over the bar.
Seven minutes before the half time whistle, McNaught added his and Clydebank’s second. Having created space on the edge of the box, he sifted the ball inside and buried his shot at the near post to give Bankies a deserved second goal heading into the break.
