Match Report


Bankies were blasted by newly promoted Morton on Cappielow on Saturday in this their last game of the season.

The match was a "friendly" but this did not mean the teams played a relaxed game; no quarter was given.

Bankies were showing their new team for next season and for the first twenty minutes or so they looked as though they might provide a shock.

However their onslaught did not last long and soon Morton began to gain control and a penalty goal by Bartram after 25 minutes started the goal rush. Bartram scored a second before half time and further goals by Mason and Stevenson gave the scoreline an emphatic look.

Neither team team could derive much satisfaction from this friendly. Morton, however, the score suggests, were tops from the goal getting point of view.

The newly promoted Greenock side had a better understanding in a team sense, but this was nullified by players who lacked a great deal in the art of distribution.

But the homesters never really looked like losing to opponents who had only spirit to commend them, Both clubs will require to strengthen their line-ups before next season.

***Editors note*** The last paragraph must have hurt the Steedman's considering they had seven new signings made specifically for the new season in their line up.
