Match Report


Up until this match Partick Thistle were the only unbeaten side in British Senior soccer, but the Bankies ended their successful run with a slick and efficient performance.

The only goal of the game came after only three minutes and what an incredible goal it was. Abel gathered the ball inside his own half, crossed the halfway line and booted it towards the penalty area. The wind caught the ball and carried it up past an astonished Rough in the Thistle goal.

On a night when good football seemed impossible both side deserved a great deal of credit for providing the 3000 or so brave fans with a fast attractive game.

The wind was blowing a gale and the rain was coming down in torrents. The stars of the show were undoubtedly the two goalkeepers especially Rough who saved Thistle several times with some great saves.

Best on the night for Bankies were McKenzie, Goodwin and McCallan while Rough, Campbell and Houston shone for Thistle.
