Match Report


The floodlights were put on at the start, but hardly managed to penetrate the thick fog descending on Links Park.

Montrose's trialist 'keeper saved well from Thomson and Fallon cut out a back header from Hughes.

Livingstone was behind several good home moves but Fallon was firm in defence.

Henderson intercepted brilliantly when Barr had a clear run on goal.

Gallacher turned a shot by Hughes round the post for the first real save of the match, then Livingstone hit the Clydebank upright after 40 minutes.

After 63 minutes of play Referee Greenlees of Lochgelly, abandoned the match because of the fog. It was impossible for the linesmen to see across the path and they were missing breaks. Players and crowd must have welcomed the decision for conditions were farcical.

Both defences were on top and there were only three saves of note before the game was terminated.
