Match Report


Two first-half goals from the Bankies were enough to see them into the final of this competition.

Alan Munro put the Bankies into a one-minute lead when he took advantage of a slip by goalkeeper McWilliams after Ian Currie had made the opening.

With the strong wind at their backs, Clydebank piled on the pressure and in the 19th minute went further ahead.

Graham McFarlane took a pass inside the box from Peter Kane before shooting home past the outrushing goalie.

The goalie brought off a great save in the 37th minute when he had to dive full length to turn a neat head flick from Munro away from the goal.

Left back James Campbell was booked for a softish foul on McFarlane two minutes later.

Alloa took the initiative after the turn-round and forced a lot of pressure.

But a quick breakaway by Clydebank had Alloa at sixes and sevens and Kane nodded the ball into the net - only for the goal to be disallowed for off-side.

A few minutes later centre-half Brown saw his header from a McCulloch corner come off the underside of the bar.

The visiting supporters let out a loud cheer, when Jimmy Caskie came on as substitute for the injured Kane.

The cross-bar again came to Clydebank's rescue when it stopped a McCallan header - the ball rebounding into Mick McDonald's arms.

Just before the final whistle, a screamer of a shot from McFarlane flew just wide.
