Match Report


Queen's Park will be eager to erase this match from memory, not just for the dropped points, but also for a potentially serious injury to substitute Eddie Hunter, who left the field with a suspected broken wrist.

Clydebank, on the other hand, celebrated their first victory of the season in style, capping off some impressive attacking play with four well-deserved goals.

The Bankies dominated the first half, scoring two stunning goals. Munro opened the scoring with a powerful strike, leaving Queen's Park goalkeeper Taylor with no chance. The lead was doubled just two minutes later by Hawkshaw, who unleashed a bullet of a volley that rocketed past Taylor.

The second half saw a more determined Queen's Park side. They managed to pull a goal back through Campbell in the 53rd minute. However, their momentum was halted by a forced substitution. Hunter, who had come on for Carmichael, had to leave the pitch just 13 minutes later with a heavily bandaged wrist.

Clydebank took advantage of the disruption, with Hawkshaw adding his second of the game in the 82nd minute. Queen's Park refused to surrender, and Malone managed to scramble the ball over the line to give them a glimmer of hope.

But their hopes were dashed by Munro, who slotted home Clydebank's fourth goal in the 89th minute. The goal, his second of the match, secured the points for the jubilant Bankies. Despite a yellow card for a foul in the first half, Munro was undoubtedly the hero for Clydebank, leading them to their first win of the campaign.
