Match Report


Clydebank's recent good run was dramatically curtailed on Saturday when lowly Brechin City won easily with a more direct line of play. Bankies played well but the only man in attack who was considered dangerous was Tony Moy.

Early on the a shot from the stocky centre forced keeper Henderson to push the ball onto the crossbar and riddle cleared.

In the first half Brechin had numerous chances set up by Burns and Tulloch, the two best players on display. The former scored a brilliant goal in 13 minutes when he flicked home a Tulloch cross.

Clydebank weren't in it at this stage. Only Collumbine stood firm, but even he couldn't stop Thomson when he slammed home a Begg chip.

Bankies goal was an own goal by left back Riddle when he passed back to the keeper from 30 yards and was shocked to see it go over the goalkeepers head.

The Bankies could have drawn level just before the interval when Russell burst through and struck the crossbar from 18 yards.

Brechin's third goal was rather lucky. Irvin crossed to Burns but the inside man missed the ball and Begg, running in, stumbled over it, dragging it into the net with him.

Near the end McGhee was booked for retaliation on Burns.
