Match Report

Until Cant and Jack, Arbroath's twin strikers, turned-on their double act in the 29th and 31st minutes, Clydebank looked the better side. The quick one-two knocked the stuffing out of them, and from then on it was no contest.

Hughes had a go but there was little strength behind his shot and McDonald saved easily. At the other end Phillips pulled down a shot from Caskie. Clydebank were showing some smart touches and giving the Arbroath defence a good deal of trouble.

Doyle broke through in one of their raids and fired in a beauty which Phillips held confidently. Munro then had a shot which whizzed past.

Arbroath went ahead after 28 minutes. Cant accepted a pass from Mackay and shot past Macdonald. They went two up two minutes later. Walker crossed from the left after beating two men and crossed it to Bruce. The inside man headed it to Jack, who nodded home.

Arbroath's third was an own goal two minutes from the Interval. MacKay raced up the wing and crossed. The ball eluded McDonald, but struck right back McMillan and went into the empty net.

After the restart, a free kick by Cant was caught by McDonald. In Arbroath’s next raid both Jack, Bruce and Cant had tries.

Hughes then sent in a low shot which McDonald dropped but there was no Arbroath forward near to take advantage.

With the visitors well beaten, Cargill banged home a fourth.
