Match Report


A deserved win for Thirds who had most of the play, and only fine goalkeeping kept the score down. Clydebank were rarely seen as an attacking force. The relied too much on Russell and Moy, and with Russell off form their attack never clicked.

Thirds opened strongly, and outside right Rundell fired in a point blank drive which MacLachlan did well to save. Minutes later Thirds centre hit a 25 yarder which dipped just over the bar.

Keeper Coates did well to touch a Moy header round the post. The winning goal, a simple affair, came after twenty minute of the second half. A Henderson corner went to the far post, where outside right Rundell squared the ball for Kinnaird to touch it home.

Despite good tries by McLaughlin and Busby, Thirds were unable to increase their lead. Bankies were well served by McLaughlin and the Junior trialist at centre half, while Connell and Busby were Thirds best.

Tommy McGhee was injured during the course of the match and was replaced by Walter Gerard.
