Match Report


A hat trick by main striker Mike Larnach gave Clydebank their first league win since October 21st

And the Bankies had to wait till they were away from home to come up with a result.

McCallan and Jim Caskie combined on the left to lay on the first for young Larnach - time, nine minutes.

And 23 minutes later, Forfar's defenders were caught in a tangle as they tried to clear.

Keeper Milne, a hero on several occasions - including one dive at Larnach's feet - was blameless when the visiting centre shot home number two.

Milne maintained his high rate of saving efforts as the game went on.

But Clydebank Piled on the pressure in the second half and it was no surprise when Larnach was on the spot yet again to notch his hat trick in 76 minutes.

New signings for Clydebank Gerry Gallagher, and back man Bobby Tuddenham, turned out on Saturday. But they had relatively little to do, especially in the second half.
