Match Report


Two goals by Joe McCallan were enough to give Clydebank their third victory over Queen of the South this Season-but this time they were lucky to come out on top of the first division at Palmerston Park.

The opening goal came in just 12 minutes. McCallan picked up a ball which had broken loose as Cooper was set to shoot, and the blond forward made no mistake from close in.

Queens hit back three minutes later, when Peter Dickson scored with a tremendous drive from 18 yards. That was about the best of Queens in the first half, and there was little surprise, when McCallan, 12 minutes from the interval, again got his name on the score-sheet by hitting home a free kick from Cooper.

In the second half Queens put on the pressure as they tried to equalise. They always threatened and in the closing stages were unlucky to see shots by McLaren and Clark go past the wrong side of a post.
