Match Report


Bankies new Junior trialist keeper did not have a very happy afternoon playing his first game. However, the defence was more to blame than he was for the goals.

The first half started off quite well for the homesters and they were actually the better side. This was shown when in ten minutes John McGill headed a Horn cross just over the bar. A continual phase of attacks has the Montrose defence working overtime but the desired goals were nor realised.

Bankies made an appeal for a penalty just on half time when centre forward Graham Small was brought down in what looked like the penalty box. However the referee. Mr Hutton though otherwise and awarded an indirect free kick.

If a penalty had been awarded it might have turned the tide in the Bankies favour.

Montrose brought on Substitute Frank Strachan in place of the injured half back Paton. Strachan went to the left wing and the left winger Doull to the right. This brought on the desired effect for after only five minutes of the second half Doull scored with a 20 yard shot on receiving a pass from centre Wallace.

Wallace featured in another of his team's goals when Falconer scored from a Wallace header in 70 minutes. The nippy centre scored himself seven minutes later when he blasted a Strachan cross into the back of the net.

Clydebank were still reeling from the effects of the second goal at this point. However, Collumbine, who had been a stalwart in defence, changed places with number 10, John McGill, and moved up front to try and rally the other forwards for a fightback.

A fight back which never came, for in 88 minutes Montrose finished the matter when Doull got his second and his team's fourth goal with a rocket shot from his more familiar left wing, giving the young keeper no chance.

The holiday weekend left gaps on the terracing and a crowd of only about 1250 watched their team's seventh defeat in a row. So far the boys have not had one single point from their league games but better days are ahead for there is no doubting the playing ability and potential of this team.

Once a few rough edges are smoothed out and with sheer hard work by both players and coaching staff, The Bankies will show them.

Fans will be getting a bit fed up but this is a new team; the boys are all pretty young; they're playing a new type of football and given a year or two they'll prove their worth.
