Match Report


Tony Moy does it again! That's what happy Clydebank fans must be saying after their team's great performance away at Brechin. Tony scored two goals bring his total to five in his last two games.

Brechin opened the scoring in the first half when Frank McAleer put through his own goal, but Bankies found an equaliser in Eddie Moore, who returned to the team after suffering an injury several weeks ago. Eddie was shoved out on the right in place of the injured Eddie Rutherford.

Featured in the scoreline was John Boyd, the right back, who cracked home a free kick to put his team in the lead. Hamish Ritchie, City's substitute keeper must have wished the Glebe Park turf would swallow him up. He fumbled Boyd's effort from 35 yards out into the back of the net.

Two good opportunist goals by Tony Moy from defensive errors in the second half gave Bankies control but Brechin got one near the end through a left footed drive by Thomson.

Bankies have released Frank Russell at his own request. The forward signed for Alloa and made his debut Cowdenbeath. Also going through the exit door at Kilbowie is Harry Rutherford who has been given a free transfer.

Frank McAleer lost four front teeth in the match at Brechin when he ran into the a brick wall in the form of Davie Mitchell, Davie's got the teeth marks on his shoulder to prove it! Frank will be playing next week but as Jack Steedman quipped, "he won't be as handsome!"

As a result of the players leaving the club the Bankies are down to a pool of 14 so the starting line up against St Mirren is likely to be the same. The Saints already looked certain for promotion, even a this stage.

Continuing their search for young talent, Bankies signed up three hopefuls last week. Jimmy Caskie, son of the former Rangers winger, David Beckett, and Clydebank Strollers player Alan Munro. David and Jimmy are former YM players.

The boys are all in the 15 to 16 age group and are working or still at school. They will train with the club and be called up in the future. The club is showing interest in several other young players and moves to have them at Kilbowie can be expected soon.
