Scott Enjoying Loan Experience

Scott Banks spoke to the press following Saturday’s 1-1 draw away to Queen’s Park in Ladbrokes League 2.

The teenager made his debut off the bench last week against Albion Rovers, and was subsequently awarded a place in the starting line-up at the National Stadium.

“It was a brilliant experience,” he said. “Playing at Hampden is something you always want to do when you’re a wee kid. I’ve never played here before and I really enjoyed getting a run out. I thought I played alright.”

David Goodwillie gave Clyde the lead late on, but The Spiders equalised soon after to earn a draw. The Bully Wee had a lot of chances earlier in the match, but struggled to put the ball in the back of the net. Scott continued:-

“You hate to see the equaliser going in and seeing everyone’s head drop on the bench. David did really well for his goal and I thought he was onside for the one I played into him just before as well. The equaliser was just a bit unfortunate.

“I thought we had a really good performance and we just have to take our chances. We could have gone into half-time three up which would have killed the game. If you have that many chances you have to score more than one goal. If we want to go and win the league we have to score more than one goal in each game.”

Banks spoke about how he is enjoying the loan move from Dundee United already:-

“I’m really enjoying the experience. Everyone’s really supportive here; it’s all a new experience for me and I think it will make me a better player. The whole loan, how it works, will make me a better player.

“The dressing room here is way different to what I’m used to. The results really matter and everyone’s really passionate about it. Today feels like a loss, everyone’s devastated. The result means everything here.”

The winger concluded by looking ahead to the game at Stirling Albion on Tuesday and to the rest of the season:-

“We have to pick ourselves up for Tuesday, play well and get the points there. We have Edinburgh City twice before the end of the season, firstly on Saturday, but we have to keep up with them.”
