Match Report


Although there were no goals the spectators had little to complain about. Both teams played hard and well, and a division of the points was just right.

The stars were mainly in defence. Madden was Clydebank's star performer. His one-handed save from a Graham header ten minutes from time was in the miraculous class. His opposite number, Ritchie, dropped a few balls, but made amends with several great saves.

There was nothing between the sides in the first half. Stenny enjoyed some superiority after the break, but Hawkshaw gradually brought the Bankies back into the game.

Playing with four 17 year old forwards, Hawkshaw was outstanding, and still kept going when he might have been expected to tire. McGregor tried everything he knew to get Stenhousemuir going, but weaknesses up front were evident again.
