Match Report


A fine display by lowly Clydebank, which virtually put paid to the amateurs promotion hopes. Bankies got off to a flying start when centre Russell slipped the ball home after a defensive mix up.

Queens Park soon equalised, Buchanan converting a fine Emery cross. The young right winger, having only hid second game, showed himself to be a player of some promise. But Clydebank piled on the pressure and a diving header by inside left Moy but them ahead just before the interval.

Second half, Queens faded and Bankies coasted to a comfortable win with a fine solo goal by Russell and a scoring shot by full back Mitchell emphasising their superiority.

Queens got a consolation goal when Hay scored just on the final whistle. The game was marred by some petty fouling, and referee Kelly booked Robertson and McKay of Queens, and McGhee, of Clydebank.

The referee was perhaps too lenient early in the game when a firm hand would have prevented most of the trouble.

Man of the match, as if we need to ask, was again little Frank Russell who scored two really fantastic goals.
