Match Report


A thoroughly deserved win for Bankies who showed some of their best football this season against a rough, hard Queens side.

A shock own goal in four minutes by right Charlie Gilmour shot Bankies into the lead and from then on they did not look back. In a sense Bankies were slightly unlucky not to have scored more but after a shaky start the visitors defence held out grimly.

Queens showed some good football especially in midfield but when they got near the Bankies goal their attacks seemed to crumble. Bankies fielded trialist Ian Gray in goal in place of Dick Madden who injured a shoulder against Montrose last week.

Kilbowie Park stood up well to the torrential rain of the past week except for the east side of the ground which was in places under four to six inches of water and was avoided by the players as much as possible.

Referee Anderson did not make himself very popular with the Kilbowie fans as some of his decisions were slightly off. They felt he lost control of the game and allowed players to get away with too much.

End to end football was served up to the fans for most of the match with Bankies always having the edge and in 63 minutes Tony Moy had the ball in the net, but the linesman's flag was up for offside against Moore, so the "goal" was chalked off.

A player at who the fans delight in shouting is Harry Rutherford, the club's outside right; but Harry had the last laugh for he scored a great goal from close in after running on to a Tony Moy header.

This win had lifted Bankies up the league table and puts them seven rungs from the bottom. The climb has started at last!

Good news from the pavilion this week is that Eddie Rutherford will probably be in the side to meet East Coasters Arbroath at Kilbowie next week. Eddie has been training full-time with Partick Thistle who offered to get the winger back in trim.

Jim Fleming will also be available and John Boyd gets out his bed after his tonsil trouble. Tommy McGhee is making a good recovery from his ankle injury and may also be fit to play.
