Match Report


Keeper Dick Madden won a 10 yard sprint to stop Forfar from winning. Dick, Clydebank's hero in the closing stages, came out of his goal to meet the advancing Stewart. The left winger lobbed the ball over his head, but Madden turned smartly and just beat the forward in a race for possession.

It was a poor game until the closing minutes. Then, Paterson replaced Bankies Brazilian right winger Inacio, and soon afterwards Wyles took over from the injured Ritchie in the Forfar goal.

Paterson, the substitute forward beat Wyles the substitute keeper with ten minutes to go, and four minutes later Stewart equalised.

Bankies new boy was Joe Gallacher who can play at full back or centre-half. Joe is 18 years old and comes from Coatbridge. He had been with Albion Rovers for two years and has wanted away for sometime. He meets the needs of the Bankies, who have been looking for a reserve centre half to fill in for Frank McAleer. McAleer is currently on the injured list.
