Match Report


A back to form Bankies blasted this unlucky Stranraer side in a scintillating display of football that even shook the fans. They fielded two new men Brazilian Ayrton Inacio and Australian right back Malcolm Henderson. Both players blended in very well, with Henderson outstanding.

Jim Hannah, the visitors centre half did not help his team very much for he scored two goals through his own net and one of them was the all important first goal.

This came in fifteen minutes when he deflected a Stan King shot over the keepers head.

Jackie McQueen, Stranraer left-half and ex-ES Clydebank player scored an equaliser in 30 minutes.

Tony Moy gave the home side a first half lead five minutes before the interval, and followed this in 52 minutes with a good goal from an Inacio head flick.

Substitute Jim Fleming scored the fourth direct from a corner kick after 60 minutes when ex -Clydebank goalkeeper SAndt McLachlan failed to hold.

Jim Hannah scored the final goal with a header in 75 minutes. He had intended it to be a pass back to keeper MacLachlan but the ball went past him and skimmed into the net.

News from the Pavilion - The Bankies have signed two more young players. They are Jim Henry, left-half with Partick Athletic, and Dennis Ruddy, centre half with Glasgow United. Another probable signing is Jim Devlin who plays at centre forward with Drumchapel Amateurs.

Ernie Collumbine scratched from the team that played Celtic Reserves at Kilbowie on Wednesday night because he was sick in bed. Bankies fielded 16 year old centre forward Alan Munro from local team, Clydebank Strollers.
