Match Report


This was by far the best challenge clash yet to be played by Clydebank at Kilbowie Park on Saturday and to crown it all the contest resulted satisfactorily in a draw.

In the fame, which was one of the toughest and roughest of the season, inside Tont Moy was the hero as it was his spectacular goal, late in the match, that saved the Bankies from losing against Second Division Third Lanark.

During the excitement one player was carried off on a stretcher and another was booked for deliberately kicking an opponent.

Several promising manoeuvres throughout the game could well have given either team the winning goal and in spite of a few players wearing basketball boots for better grip attempts went amiss.

At the outset ir looked as if Thirds would open up the scoring and in the 10th minute they did so. The goal netted by Thirds top scorer, George Fyfe, was calmly plunged home from close range after a neat pass from right winger Miller.

Then minutes later a catastrophe struck the visitors when their left half John Kinnaird had to be carried off the pitch after he slipped and broke his left collar bone. He was later taken to the Glasgow Western Infirmary by ambulance.

Although Thirds were now down to ten men their determination brought results and in the 29th minute they forged further ahead. A direct free kick taken by Kilgannon gave left winger Henderson his opportunity.

However, Clydebank's continual raids which up to this stage were of poor quality, finally managed to narrow the gap when left winger Tommy McGhee rammed home a 15 yard drive.

Just before the interval Thirds fielded Danny May as a substitute for Kinnaird. Shortly after Bankies right back small was booked.

Clydebank at the restart wasted no time and showed their opponents that they were going all out to clinch the game. Their prediction partly came true when three minutes after the interval Moy netted Bankies long overdue equaliser from close range giving keeper Williams an unsaveable angular shot after some nice play by Connelly.

Minutes later the home teams should have scored a similar goal but a cunning move by Moy ended with a wild lob over the bar.

Then to the disappointment of the local crowd the visitors once again took the lead in the 73rd minute when J. Kilgannon completely deceived keeper Wilson with a drooping ball which fell over his head and into the net.

But Clydebank were not beaten yet and it was a free kick that scored their equalising goal eleven minutes from full time. Again Moy was the scorer when he neatly flicked the ball homewards.
