Match Report


It is to be hoped that Clydebank's latest recruit, Brazilian Ayrton Inacio, has been signed to score goals. For that was the big difference between two well matched teams.

Accies had big bustling Enoch Gilchrist. The ex-Wishaw Junior took some watching and was always prepared to have a go. It was fitting, therefore, that he should score the only goal to keep the points at home.

Out-jumping everyone to a Halpin free, he headed against the bar, but quickly followed up, his second attempt with his head was a winner.

With 20 minutes to go, Clydebank substituted Jenkins for Baxter. McGhee did get one in the net for Bankies. The linesman thought it was a good one, but the referee, to the disgust of the visitors, ruled it offside.

News from the pavilion - Another player has been given a free by the club. He is John Boyd who joined the Bankies from Morton.

A replacement will be signed this week. He is an Australian who has settled in Clydebank and is living with relatives. He will probably be in the side against Stranraer.

Ayrton Inacio, the Brazilian who was with French club Stade de Paris for two seasons has been training at Kilbowie all week. Manager Jack Steedman said that the lad has been out of training for several weeks, but hopes are high that he will also feature against Stranraer. What with a Brazilian and an Australian in the team Clydebank are taking on a truly international look.

Three players are struggling to be fit for the Stranraer match. They are Eddie Moore, Jim Fleming and Stan King but they are all progressing well. Good news for fans is that Eddie Rutherford came through his cartilage operation and will be back in light training soon.
