CLYDEBANK'S hopes of moving to Dublin were dealt a another blow last night when it was revealed that five Irish clubs have supported Wimbledon's offer of a #10 million cash windfall.

The London club's owner Sam Hammam has offered Irish League clubs #500,000, with the same amount going to the FAI, if they back Wimbledon's plans to relocate in Dublin. Five clubs have indicated they will support Wimbledon, but not one will support Clydebank, who are not offering financial support.

Hammam said: ''We have pledged to give #10m to Irish football and we will set up schools of excellence all over the country. We have always said a move to Dublin by Wimbledon would be beneficial to Ireland.

''I don't wish to comment on the situation with Clydebank.''

The unnamed clubs that are now supporting Wimbledon revealed their support in a local newspaper survey. However, support for the Bankies' proposals was non-existent.
