Match Report


What a cliff-hanger of a game! Alloa, leading 3-1 after an action packed quarter of an hour, found they were still fighting a Clydebank side which refused to acknowledge defeat.

Bankies got one back after the restart, and with five minutes to go, their stubborn fightback was rewarded.

Then a real heart-stopper for Alloa! Clydebank netted, but the referee had just enough time to disallow this score, before blowing for full time.

Hawkshaw was the man of the match. A clever and constructive attacker in a game which tended to be vigorous rather than clever.

On one vital occasion, he popped up to sweep the ball off the line when Madden was well beaten.

McGhee having missed an easy first minute chance, made up for it in four minutes when he nipped in a close range effort. Two minutes later Muir levelled, then Halup was brought down in the box, and Ure scored from the spot. Thomson put Alloa three up in the fifteenth minute.

On the restart, Hawkshaw laid on a good chance for Munro who prodded home, and Caskie got the equaliser five minutes from time.
