Match Report


A crowd of nearly 1,000; the largest for many seasons, turned out at Glebe Park to watch a very entertaining game between Brechin City and Clydebank in the League Cup competition.

Brechin made one change from the team which had won their previous two games with scores of 4-0. Ian Burns, ex-Aberdeen, replaced Harrier at right-half.

The home team went straight into attack but could make little of Bankies 4-2-4 system.

When they did get past the defence they found keeper Wilson in superb form.

The Bankies looked dangerous when in possession with Moy a tricky leader. It was the centre who surprised the Brechin defence - shook the home fans - when he shipped the ball through to Cummings who lashed it past the advancing Henderson.

Just on the interval Wilson saved the visitors with a miraculous save from a close range shot by Tulloch.

The second half proved to be more exciting than the first with thrilling end-to-end play.

Wilson was still the busier keeper and had several excellent saves before he had to admit defeat from a cracking right foot drive from Burns.

The home fans had hardly stopped cheering when Anderson crashed in a 20-yarder to give their team the lead.

The two quick goals urged on the Brechin side, but the Bankies didn't lie down. They tried hard for the equaliser.

Their efforts were in vain, however, for it was Brechin who scored again in the dying minutes. Sneddon finished off a grand move by the home time.

Best for Clydebank were Wilson and Moy. This was a great game to watch, it kept the fans in suspense all the time. Clydebank have a good team and with match practice will be a hard team to beat.
