Match Report


Disillusionment for Berwick and near triumph for Clydebank. Britain's only team, up to Saturday, without a point. They finished so strongly they might well have collected a brace. Bankies equalising goal proved an inspiration. McGhee's shot from 20 yards, hit on the turn, gave Tait no chance.

Berwick let their opportunities slip first half. With newcomer Sammy Reid full of running and prompting, there was a definite lack of finish, although McLaren had hard luck with two good shots.

But their goal in 22 minutes should have settled Rangers. Veitch had a try parried by the keeper and Dowds ran in to net. But Clydebank were still pegging away, and their team spirit carried them through to a deserved second half equaliser.

From then on the game could have gone either way, with Clydebank playing more assured football. Only Tait and Coutts earned credit for a poor Berwick team. McLachlan, Collumbine and McGill were Clydebank's best.

Fans will no doubt hope that this is the turning point to a somewhat depressing start. Newcomers to the Bankies side goalkeeper Sandy McLachlan and left-half Davie Mitchell made their debut on Saturday and had a good hand in the team's performance.
