Match Report


East Fife made the running in the first half and for most of the second in a somewhat scrappy game.

Well into the second half the home fans must have wondered when the goals were going to come, after a series of promising moves floundered with poor finishing.

Then, as the game was wandering towards its close, the left foot of ex-Ranger Billy McPhee made amends, first with a 20-yarder from a Quinn pass, then a 35-yarder right out of the blue.

Clydebank were pinned down for most of the match, and only looked dangerous on the break. Caskie was a menace on the left flank, and Ruddy and Hay a tower of strength in midfield.

For East Fife, Walter Borthwick had a commanding game, with veteran John Martis solid as a pivot, although he was booked in the first half, as was Jackson, of Clydebank.
