Match Report


I don't know what they feed them on at Kilbowie at half-time in the Bankies dressing room, but it certainly works wonders. For the first forty-five minutes. Clydebank were completely outplayed by the visiting Queens side.

The visitors forwards were having a field day against a seemingly non-existent Bankies defence. The midfield was Queens, as the Bankies stuttered along firing only on two cylinders.

Queens went ahead in the 27th minute when their left-half Robertson intercepted a slack Dougie Hay pass, ran on, played a quick one-two with Whyte before sending a low shot past McDonald

But in the second-half, it was a completely different story. The Bankies were in command and threw everything into attack. They forced two corners in the first minute. However their equaliser was not long in coming.

With the second-half only three minutes old Bobby Love tried a shot which was deflected by a defender. Taylor in the Queens goal couldn't hold the ball and the ever-alert Alan Munro pounced to knock the ball home.

This signalled all-out attack from the Bankies and It wasn't just the forwards who were having the fun either. Bearded sweeper Denis Ruddy gave boss Jack Steedman palpitations when he frequently abandoned his defensive role for attack Fondly described by one journalist as "hatchet man." his height and weight helped the forwards countless times. Jim Fallon had a couple of raids up front as well.

The nearest thing to a winning goal was when Danny Gray headed a Denis Ruddy free-kick against the bar.
