Match Report


First Division met Second but no one noticed or complained. It was a rip-roaring contest with not a slacker in sight, and bags of hard football. McColl, of Clydebank, was booked, but it was a case of frustration rather than anything else.

Clydebank, unchanged from their promotion-winning team were surprised by the pace and drive of Alloa. On and on came the Wasps and keeper Jim Gallacher was a very busy man in Bankies goal.

But Alloa deserved a goal. They swung the ball to better purpose, and went hard for it. Their goal came in the 20th minute amid a welter of excitement.

Billy Wilkinson pushed a nice ball forward, the irrepressible Russell dummied it, and there was Thomson on the spot as if planned, to prod the ball home. It was to prove enough despite the Bankies blowing up a terrific storm in the closing minutes.
