Match Report


Two second-half goals by Hughes, a former Montrose player, gave Clydebank victory in a rearranged league match at Links Park last night. But half the crowd had difficulty in seeing the goals because of fog, which had delayed the start for 20 minutes.

Lowe headed Montrose into the lead in 20 minutes. but McCallan equalised with a well-placed free kick five minutes from the interval.

In the second half Montrose went completely to pieces. Their defence made many mistakes and this was where the difference lay for Clydebank were strong at the back.

Stewart had one good header well saved by Gallacher at the post but in 65 minutes Joe Hughes headed Clydebank into the lead against his old team.

Clydebank fully deserved their third goal also scored by Hughes in 75 minutes, but he should never have got that chance to tap home from close range. D'arcy worked hard for Montrose who had no one to approach McCallan or Fallon.
