Match Report


A clean cut victory for Cowdenbeath achieved by fine teamwork and skilful approach play. In contrast, Clydebank's main asset was their fighting spirit even when they were well in arrears.

There were no weak links in the Fife side. Ritchie was outstanding in goal. Rowland and Jack played Collumbine and McCallum out of the game. Kinnell was the complete master of the middle, with Clinton a superb tactician and architect of two goals.

Henderson kept the attack moving, and his back heeled goal was the cutest of the four. Donaldson also was responsible for two goals, producing nice moves with Clark - a fine opportunist.

Clydebank moved well to the penalty rea but lacked penetration, and it was right back Small who gave Ritchie his most difficult tests.
