Match Report


Bankies were beaten by one man on Saturday in this very exciting county derby. The man in question was Hugh McMahon, the sons nippy inside forward, who scored two goals in the space of one minute to give his team the two points.

The football was fast, clean and highly entertaining and credit must go to both teams for their performance. Bankies I thought, were a little unlucky not to get a draw but the sons last two goals came in the remaining ten minutes of the game and left them little hope of getting on level terms again.

In the first half Bankies looked as good as the visitors if not slightly more dangerous and but for a careless mistake by keeper Ronnie Wilson they would have come out after half time with no goals against them.

Sons goal came in the 42nd minute when inside right McGowan sent in a harmless low shot at the keeper . Wilson, however, dropped the ball at the feet of the oncoming winger, McDonald who easily slipped the ball into the net.

The first fifteen minutes of the second half were rather indifferent as both teams tried to get on top. Then after 59 minutes, a brilliant goal by Tommy McGhee put Bankies back in the race.

From a position on the left, about thirty yards out, he blasted the ball into the right hand corner of the net, giving keeper Crawford no chance.

Bankies went all out now to get the winner but they beaten to it by the visitors when, in the 77th and 78th minutes, McMahon scored two identical goals each time slipping the ball past the oncoming keeper Wilson. After this, the fight went out of the Bankies and the Sons coasted home easy winners.
