Match Report


Cowdenbeath clinched a decisive victory through exemplary teamwork and skilful play, while Clydebank's resilience stood out despite the scoreline.

Every player in the Cowdenbeath team contributed to their success. Ritchie's goalkeeping was exceptional, with Rowland and Jack effectively neutralizing Collumbine and McCallum. Kinnell dominated the midfield, supported by Clinton's strategic brilliance, which led to two goals.

Henderson orchestrated the attack with precision, culminating in a cleverly executed back-heeled goal, one of Cowdenbeath's four impressive strikes. Donaldson also played a pivotal role, scoring two goals and displaying excellent chemistry with Clark, showcasing his opportunistic instincts.

Although Clydebank showed promising movement towards the penalty area, they struggled to break through Cowdenbeath's defence. Nonetheless, right-back Small posed a notable challenge to Ritchie, providing the opposition's goalkeeper with some of his toughest tests.
