Match Report


This was one of Clydebank's worst performances of the season. For a team that drew with Motherwell (in a friendly) on Tuesday it was pretty poor.

Tony Moy was the only Clydebank forward who ever really looked like scoring and on four or five occasions he could have scored with the head but for keeper Russell.

The home team's play was slack and Thirds took advantage of this and put it to good use.

In the first half neither team was commendable as as the play was scrappy and both team could not produce a finish until the 20th minute when Thirds centre forward Stewart scored on his second try when the ball skidded off a Clydebank defender into the roof of the net.

Thirds took the initiative in the second half and were unlucky not to score a barrowload but some stout, but sometimes suspect, defence work by the homesters kept the score down.

Clydebank kept trying, however unsuccessfully to fins an opening in the Thirds Fort Knox type defence, but their efforts were lost to the wind.

Thirds got their second goal in the 62nd minute - Stewart again being the scorer. He neatly nipped in to send a Connell cross fling into the net with the head, leaving keeper McLachlan paralysed.

After this the game was virtually sewn up and only an occasional flash of brilliance from Frank Russell and Moy came but they were the only ones who ever really looked like scoring in the second half.

Winger Stewart, in the side in place of Joe Rankin, played a useful game and caused some worry to the visitors but poor finishing followed most of the Bankies forwards.
