Fan-owned Clyde Football Club have voted in favour of moving to East Kilbride in two seasons and changing the club’s name to EK Clyde.
The vote took place in an Extraordinary General Meeting before Saturday’s home game against Montrose with 82% of the supporters who own the club turning up.
Only 7% were against the move to South Lanarkshire – meaning 93% for – while 84% were in favour of the name change.
One of the club's directors, Gordon Thomson, said: "The turnout was the biggest success of the day because we are supporter owned and taking it seriously.
"It's very much the start of the process still, people put trust in the directors regardless of the majority vote.
"We have to respect people who were not supportive of the opportunity to move to East Kilbride. They might not agree with the way forward but we took all options into consideration."
