Match Report


The club had sent an official complaint to the SFA about the way this game was handled by referee John Gordon of Newport-on-Tay who is on the FIFA list this season.

Mr Gordon sent off Stan King, Tony Moy and Dennis Ruddy and booked East Fife left back Harry McLeish.

This is the first time for many years that a Scottish Club has had three men sent off in one match.

Bankies lost their trialist keeper and he was replaced by John Baxter.
