Match Report


A hat trick by outside left Bobby Tambling rocked Clydebank who were never able to get off the ground after that.

Chelsea opened the soring after five minutes through Tambling but two minutes later Bankies equalised through Frank Russell.

Tambling made it 2-1 at half-time and from then on the visitor had no worries.

The game was rough at times and most of the fouls came from the more "experienced" Chelsea. One of the worst offenders was John Hollins who for my money should have been sent off, friendly or no friendly. He gave centre Jim Fleming a very bad time.

If that's Chelsea's idea of a friendly game then they can keep it. Mind you, only one or two of the players were to blame but a team of Chelsea's calibre should not need to resort to these kind of tactics.
