Match Report


This was a good game between two evenly-balanced sides, with Clydebank just deserving their narrow win.

All-out attack by both teams created many exciting incidents in the penalty areas, with the swirling wind often to blame for chances going astray.

Stranraer were quicker on the break, and one such move by Symington led to Orr cancelling an earlier goal by Munro.

The wind also committed the teams to swing the ball about, which suited the big Stranraer attack better. But one flash of Caskie magic set up an excellent winning goal for McGhee.

Mitchell, Fallon, and Love were Clydebank's top men, with Heap, Symington, Duffy, and Orr best for Stranraer.
