Hi Adam, and welcome to the club.

 

I also think that a new clutch is needed.

Hi Adam, the previous answers to you query probably gives the correct answer however, a simple method of proving the clutch is to place the vehicle in an higher gear 4/5th with handbrake fully on. Attempt to pull off if the car rev's then then the clutch is knackered otherwise the engine would be expected to stall. Hope this helps.
