Match Report


Yet another sad defeat for the Bankies. At Kilbowie Park on Wednesday night, they played some good football but luck wasn't with them.

Against the run of play Queens opened the scoring. Whitehead headed a long pass down on to the feet of Struthers who blasted the ball past Madden.

The second goal came in the 41st minute when Whitehead headed in a McKay cross, after Madden had fluffed a clearance.

Ten minutes into the second half and, Queens increased their lead through Whitehead. He netted the ball after it had rebounded from Madden.

Clydebank's only counter came in the 64th minute when Caskie hammered in a low shot after good work by Love, Munro and Nelson.

Although the ‘Bankies tried hard to come back into the game, Queens stood firm for the remainder of the game.

Clydebank's best men were Wilson, Gray and Love. Tops for Queens were Struthers, McKay and Hume.
