Match Report


This shock defeat for Queens ended their promotion hopes and deservedly so for only Ball, Boyd, and McLaren, played to form. Up front the high scoring Palmerston forwards never looked capable of penetrating a sound Bankies' defence in which Provan, Fallon, and Gallacher, were outstanding.

The only goal came early on with a Gilmour lob which was touched on by McGovern to Hughes who netted from eight yards.

Clarkson of Queens was booked for dissent.
