Match Report


Bankies were the pupils on Saturday when Hamilton taught them a lesson in good co-ordinated football. Four goals was almost the minimum that Hamilton could have scored. But for some good defence work they might have doubled the score.

Bankies has absolutely nothing to offer up front. All the forwards seemed to be having a bad day. Tony Moy, although he did not play well, came the nearest to scoring with a few fine headers which keeper Lamont dealt with in a competent manner.

The defence did not have a good day either. I think they missed the steady influence of centre half John McGill who failed to pass a late fitness test. Ernie Collumbine and Dave Mitchell were the best in defence.

No real excuses can be given for this heavy defeat. Bankies were just beaten by the better team.

Hamilton's danger man, Horn opened the scoring in 35 minutes when he ranon to blast a Thomson cross into the net.

Five minutes later Vint made it two when he scored from a Horn pass.

A bad fumble by MacLachlan cost Bankies their third goal. The ball slipped from the keepers hand into the path of the incoming Vint who bundled the ball into the net.

Hunter got Hamilton's final goal two minutes from time.
