Match Report


The visit of the Bens to Clydebank proved a big draw, and the game was full of interest from start to finish. A sensational start was made, as the visitors at once settled down and scored a couple of goals in the first five minutes.

This had the effect of rousing the Bankies, who tried all their arts to beat Monteith and Logan, but this clever pair withstood the attack, and at half-time the Govandale side still led by 2 to 1.

A fierce struggle took place in the second half. The Clydebank tried hard to score, but met with a very stubborn and clever defence, and the end came with the Bens clever winners as above.

The two goals scored at the start of the game gave the Benburb players confidence, and their work throughout was first-class. The Bankies' forwards were weak, and the defence was not up to its usual standard.
