Match Report


Brechin City wrapped all their lucky days into one for this Scottish Cup tie against a Clydebank team who did everything but score.

The City goalmouth escapes had to be seen to believed and the young Bankie boys should have been well ahead at the end.

City's heroes were all in defence, with Denis Gillespie at left back using all his experience to break up countless Bankies attacks.

Britton and Clark also take credit for a stuffy rearguard action.

Even in the last minute City's luck held when Britton crashed the ball wildly against his own bar to stop the waiting Larnach from touching in a low Harvey cross.
