Match Report


There was an air of expectancy from the home crowd of nearly 1000 when Meadowbank, after facing a strong wind and driving rain, turned round after a no-scoring first half. They had to wait 81 minutes however, before Cathcart settled the issue with a fine header from an O’Rourke corner.

Clydebank had no answer to the Meadowbank forwards, who dominated play in the second half. They lacked cohesion, however, and could manage to score only the one goal – enough to gain the points.
