Match Report


It was a positive outcome for Bankies, especially considering their opponents' pedigree from the previous season in the First Division. Fortune favoured the Bankies when Accies missed a crucial opportunity in the 30th minute, as Vint's penalty kick ricocheted off the upright and went out of play.

Throughout the match, Hamilton struggled to find their rhythm, with their forwards lacking potency in front of goal. Despite initiating promising moves, their finishing left much to be desired, with many shots off target.

Similarly, Bankies displayed early promise in midfield, initiating attacks, but they too faltered in front of goal due to poor finishing.

Tempers flared in the second half, leading to bookings for Gaughan of Hamilton and Collumbine of Clydebank. Both teams had players walking a fine line, fortunate to escape further disciplinary action.

Standout performers for the home side included Miller, Vint, and McClare, while Russell, Moy, and McCallum shone brightest for Bankies. Both defences held firm, with McGill for Clydebank and Small for Accies delivering standout performances in the centre.

Looking ahead, Bankies will host East Stirlingshire next week, a team currently at the bottom of the league. With both clubs tied on points but Bankies holding a superior goal difference, a victory could be within reach for the home team.
