Played before one of Boghead's biggest crowds of the season this six-goal thriller provided some great entertainment, amply rewarding the supporters who shrugged off the New Year booze-blues to go along and watch the annual Ne’erday derby between the two County teams.
Top man of the day for Clydebank was young Jimmy Caskie who scored two of Clydebank's goals and made the third. He was up to his neck in action all the time and he didn't let up once.
As the County rivals opened the match Dumbarton pulled away. Gaining confidence on their home ground, the Sons hammered into the Clydebank defence.
Inside-left Watson of Dumbarton scored the first in the 14th minute. His hard shot hit a Clydebank defender and skidded past a surprised and helpless Dick Madden into the back of the net.
Bankies fought back hard but their reward didn't come until one minute from half-time when Jimmy Caskie sent home a neat shot.
The second half opened badly for Clydebank when Dick Madden had to leave the field for treatment to a face injury.
Moments later big Roy McCormack, an ex-Whe-ho player, now top Sons scorer, put Dumbarton in the lead. He made contact with a Watson pass just outside the Clydebank goal and flicked the ball into the top of the net.
Ernie Collumbine wasn't going to stand back and take this sort of treatment, so straight from the restart he moved the ball upfield.
Knocking spots off the Dumbarton defence Collumbine passed to Caskie who blasted the ball home from close in.
The game was really heating up now and both teams were out for blood. It wasn't long before Dumbarton took the lead again. Nine minutes after Caskie's second, inside right Boyd of Dumbarton scored number three.
Shortly before this McCormack was booked for fouling 'keeper Dick Madden.
The last goal of the match came in the 76th minute. Jimmy Caskie ran rings round the Dumbarton defence on the left wing then passed to Gerry O'Brien who smashed in a 15-yard equaliser.
