Biography

Eddie Moore was one of a number of players from Ayr United who ended up at Kilbowie. He was a tall imposing figure who came to Clydebank as a goal scoring centre-forward. He was brilliant in the air, a great target man and a hard as nails player who let defenders know he was about. He looked as if he would be an ideal fit for this Clydebank team. Things started off well then a bit of tinkering started taking the edge of Eddie Moore’s natural abilities.

Eddie Moore played just over forty games and scored eleven goals for Clydebank, a respectable total but nothing outstanding. However there is a reason for this. Clydebank had a really good strike force at this time with Tony Moy knocking in the goals and the experienced Jim Fleming also weighing in with goals, Frank Russell was also still on the scene but would shortly move on as he was squeezed out. So we had three outstanding forwards who all knew the way to goal and all fighting to get a starting place. Someone made the decision to move Eddie Moore back to centre half, a position he occupied for almost half his Clydebank career, so his eleven goals total should be based on just over twenty games. Eddie had no experience of playing centre half and it showed in a number of games.

Eddie made his debut on 12 August 1967 in a 2-0 win against Brechin in a League Cup tie at Kilbowie Park. He opened his goal account four days later in a 1-0 win at Firs Park against East Stirling in another League Cup tie. His next match was a return to his old stomping ground of Somerset Park and again Eddie was on the mark putting Clydebank ahead in 4 minutes but Ayr United came roaring back to win 3-1. Eddie then played with the deadly combination of Russell and Moy in a League Cup tie at Station Park against Forfar, with Eddie on the mark yet again together with a Frank Russell goal seeing Clydebank through 2-1. Ayr United then appeared once more as Clydebank played them in a League Cup qualifying play off. Tony Moy had the Bankies 1-0 ahead at Somerset Park but Dixie Ingram who was Eddie Moore’s replacement at Ayr scored a last minute equaliser.

The second leg at Kilbowie was a pulsating end to end rip-roaring cup tie with Clydebank going into the lead twice through ex Ayr players Arthur Paterson and Eddie Moore but Ayr proved too strong and a double from Dixie Ingram helped Ayr to a 4-2 victory.

The remarkable thing about Eddie Moore’s short Clydebank career was that come the end of season 1967-68 there was no longer a fight for a place in the strike force. Frank Russell had transferred to Alloa, Jim Fleming had decided to hang up his boots and Tony Moy made his way to Chelmsford City. Season 1968-69 seen Eddie Moore back up front with yet another signing from Ayr United in Ian Hawkshaw although a young Alan Munro had impressed in pre-season friendlies. Eddie Moore played his last game for Clydebank in the first league game of the season when he came off injured in a 3-1 defeat at Brechin.
