Match Report


On Saturday, Bankies found themselves in the role of pupils as Hamilton demonstrated a masterclass in coordinated football. Four goals seemed almost the bare minimum Hamilton could have scored, and but for some solid defensive efforts, they might have doubled their tally.

Bankies offered next to nothing in attack. All the forwards appeared to be off their game. Tony Moy, though not at his best, came closest to scoring with a few fine headers, all of which keeper Lamont handled competently.

The defence also struggled. The absence of centre-half John McGill, who failed a late fitness test, was keenly felt. Ernie Collumbine and Dave Mitchell stood out as the best performers in defence.

There are no real excuses for this heavy defeat. Bankies simply succumbed to the superior quality of the opposition.

Hamilton's danger man, Horn, broke the deadlock in the 35th minute when he latched onto a Thomson cross and blasted it into the net.

Five minutes later, Vint doubled Hamilton's lead, converting from a Horn pass.

A costly fumble by MacLachlan gifted Hamilton their third goal. The ball slipped from the keeper's grasp into the path of the onrushing Vint, who bundled it into the net.

Hunter sealed Hamilton's victory with their fourth goal two minutes from time.
