Match Report

It’s amazing how a team can go from one game with hardly a shot at goal to being 2-0 within quarter of an hour in the next. Hurlford were to find a much better Clydebank side than the one Cumnock faced only a few days ago, The Scottish Junior Cup finalists may have rested one or two players, but were by and large at full strength.

John Cunningham was the man who made the difference scoring twice in 14 minutes. The first was all his own work when he turned a defender about 40 yards out. He raced in on goal and with great tenacity held off several attempts to dispossess him before slotting the ball home.

The second was from a Dooley cross on the right. Josh Watt touched it into Cunningham’s path and he took the ball on stride, then slipped it into the net with his left foot.

Hurlford probably should have got at least one goal back with the chances they created. A point blank header, just after the break, being one chance that should have resulted in a goal.

The Bankies added a third from a corner kick, with Matt McLean scoring his first goal for the club by rising unchallenged at the near post to head the simplest goal you are likely to see.

Clydebank can take great heart from this result. Both Junior Cup finalists have now been defeated at Holm Park this season. A bit more consistency and one or two decent signings for next season can hopefully see the club competing at the right end of the table.
