Match Report


Clydebank warmed up for their forthcoming league cup tie against Rangers with a convincing victory last night at Kilbowie Park. The Rangers manager, Jock Wallace, watched the game as did Dave McKay the Derby County boss and several other top club representatives.

Clydebank gave as entertaining a performance as any seen at Kilbowie and their three first half goals totally demoralised the Rovers.

Larnach scored two – the first after only five minutes – and McCallan added the third a minute before the interval.

The Bankies eased off on the second half, but Rovers, who replaced Cooper and Wallace with Hunter and Jobson could make no reply.

McCallan had the ball in the net eight minutes from the end but the “goal” was disallowed as a hand had been used.
