Match Report


Clydebank's new Brazilian signing, Ayrton Inacio, was unable to find the net in a tight encounter against Hamilton Accies. The difference between the two well-matched teams proved to be a single goal from Enoch Gilchrist.

The former Wishaw Junior caused problems for the Clydebank defence all game with his physical presence and attacking intent. It was fitting that he scored the only goal to secure the win for Accies.

Rising above everyone else to meet a Halpin free kick, Gilchrist's initial header struck the bar. However, he reacted quickest to the rebound and nodded the ball home to claim the winner.

With 20 minutes remaining, Clydebank made a substitution, bringing on Jenkins for Baxter. They thought they had equalised through McGhee, but the linesman's offside flag denied their celebration.

Clydebank announced the release of John Boyd. He had joined the club from Morton earlier in the season.

A replacement has already been lined up. An Australian player, who has recently settled in Clydebank with relatives, is set to be signed this week. He is expected to be included in the squad for the upcoming match against Stranraer.

Ayrton Inacio, the Brazilian midfielder recently acquired from Stade de Paris, has been training with the team all week. Manager Jack Steedman acknowledged that Inacio has missed several weeks of training, but is hopeful he can feature against Stranraer.

The addition of Inacio and the upcoming Australian signing gives Clydebank a more international flavour.

Three players - Eddie Moore, Jim Fleming, and Stan King - are doubtful for the Stranraer match but are making good progress in their recovery. In positive news for fans, Eddie Rutherford has successfully undergone knee surgery and will soon return to light training.
