Match Report


Two early second-half goals by Mike Larnach bagged the points. for Clydebank, who should have been well ahead at the interval.

They monopolised play in the first half, but their finishing was rock-bottom.

They missed several gaping goals and they were foiled twice by goal-line clearances by Sime and Nicol.

Just after the break Larnach broke the deadlock with a hotshot after splendid work by Thomson. Then a fine solo burst by Larnach got the second goal

But it was not a convincing victory. Too much slapdash soccer and precious little subtlety.
