Match Report


A great Clydebank victory. It was a triumph of teamwork. The Bankies had skill, speed, and style, which Stranraer could not match.

They would have won by a wider margin but for the super goalkeeping of Gallacher, the visitors 'keeper. Two early glaring penalties put the Bankies on the winning way, Fallon scoring each time from the spot.

Boy who stole the show was teenager Jim Thomson. He capped a dandy display with a brilliant hat-trick; two splendid shots and a well timed header.

Stranraer's only real scoring effort came late on from substitute McGeehan who hit the woodwork.
