Celtic boss Jock Stein was in the stand when Caley kicked off the new season with a friendly against Clydebank at Telford Street Park this afternoon.
But Mr Stein had little to enthuse over in the first half, for play was scrappy throughout,
The professional outfit, who want promotion were lucky to be a goal ahead at the turn.
It was a penalty which gave them the lead five minutes from the interval. Larnach was pulled down by Corbett and Billy McColl made no mistake,
The Bankies had started off brightly but their finishing was wild.
As the half-hour mark approached, Caley crept into the game and Gallacher came to the rescue with two saves from Urquhart and Wood.
The Highlanders, without three of their best players, skipper Presslie, player-coach Andy Penman and iron man Bruce Fraser were struggling towards the interval. All three were injured against Queen's Park in midweek.
The Bankies restarted in sprightly fashion and Larnach and Cooper twice hit the posts.
Caley however, were fighting back hard and in 65 minutes Peter Corbett shoved a lovely pass to Gordon Fyfe who netted with a low drive Into the far corner of the net but the visitors, restored their lead seven minutes later with a solo effort from McColl.
