The remarkable Bobby Slaven was a triple one game wonder. Bobby Slaven was a free scoring centre forward for St.Roch's and was introduced as a trialist on 4th March 1967 in a league game against Alloa Athletic at Recreation Park. However Bobby was not the only Clydebank trialist that day. His teammate from St. Roch's Walter Lees played at centre half and yet another trialist, John Smith an amateur from Fernhill Athletic played in the number 10 jersey. It should be pointed out that Fernhill Athletic were an Amateur team that were only founded in 1967 and were basically a Saturday morning boys park team. Despite this handicap Clydebank escaped with a 1-1 draw thanks to a Frank Russell equaliser a couple of minutes from the end.

Bobby Slaven had been the subject of interest from Brighton who at that time were an English Third Division team. This was his only game for the Bankies, but he also had a one game trial for Dumbarton in which he scored and yet another one game trial with Albion Rovers.
