Match Report


A good result for Bankies especially against a team who last year were in the First Division. Luck was certainly with the Bankies for Accies missed their chance of a win in the 30th minute when Vint's penalty kick rebounded off the upright and eventually out of play.

Hamilton never seemed able to get going and their forwards lacked punch. They could start a move off well but when it came to finishing their efforts at goal were wild and most of their shots misdirected.

Bankies too started off well in midfield, building up attacks, but they suffered from the same fault as the homesters - bad finishing.

Tempers were strained in the second half. Gaughan, of Hamilton, and Collumbine, of Clydebank, were booked, and others were lucky not to land in trouble as well.

Best for the home side were Miller, Vint and McClare. Bankies best men were Russell, Moy and McCallum. Both defences played their pars well and the two Centre Halves, McGill for Clydebank and Small for Accies excelled.

The Bankies entertain East Stirlingshire, who are bottom of the league, next week and a win could possibly be on the cards, Both clubs are on equal points but the Bankies have a better goal average.
