Match Report


A game full of fluctuations, resulting in a draw between these two teams for the third time this season. Queens were in complete command first half, but their finishing was ineffective. Bankies did most of the attacking in the second half and their forwards, especially Hawkshaw and Caskie, were more incisive, giving keeper Ball a busy time.

It was the old story with Queens - lack of a striker. They introduced George Brown from Tow Law, at centre, but he came nowhere near solving their problem.

A much more impressive debut was made by Bankies newcomer, Bobby Love, from Pollok Juniors. He had a share in the movement that led to Hawkshaw collecting a low cross from Caskie and scoring from short range.

Law equalised with a spectacular drooping shot which deceived Madden.

Bankies defence, in which Ruddy was notable, withstood all subsequent home efforts. Jackson continued to be the only home player who caused the visitors any trouble.
