Match Report


For almost an hour it looked as if there would only be one winner - the wind. Then, with the first real constructive move of the game, Clydebank scored. Love managed to keep a pass through the middle down, and there was Jimmy Caskie in the centre forward position to send a grounder, yes, a grounder, past Lamont,

Accies brought on Paterson for Holton. Minutes later, Rutherford was carried off injured and on came O'Brien. Gilchrist had his name taken for a foul on Love. Clifford went off for repairs, as did Hay.

Hereabout Clydebank took command and notched number two. Hawkshaw made the running down the right, and his cross was squeezed over the line by Munro.

But Goodwin in a goalmouth scramble got one back for Accies, and Clydebank nearly had to be content with a draw when a Thomson shot hit the bar and came out.

It would be unfair to criticise the players in such conditions. Gaughan, Goodwin and Clifford for Accies and Collumbine, Hawkshaw and Caskie for Bankies succeeded more than the other to play a little football.
