This the first meeting of the above clubs under League auspices, brought together a very satisfactory crowd at Lochburn on Saturday, and it is no exaggeration to say that they were treated to one of the most interesting and keenly contested games played in the Maryhill district for some considerable time.
Opening towards wards the south goal, the home side were early swarming round Bell; but the sterling defence of his backs gave him little cause for anxiety. Then Robertson, on the Juniors' left, showed the way towards the 'Hill goal, and one two occasions it looked odds on him through; but the evergreen Coleman brought his side safely out of the threatened danger. However, the veteran back the following minute almost gave away the leading point, the ball glancing off his head to the foot of the visitors' outside left; but the latter slipped when on the point of shooting, and the best chance of the day was gone. Just on half time the Clydebank centre got past Robertson but he was palpably offside, and the point failed to count, so without scoring the teams crossed over.
Within a minute they were at it again, and it was now that the champions gave gave a glimpse of that form which carried them to the top of the ladder last season. Playing with the utmost precision, they were time and again down on Bell, but even shooting on any and every occasion, they failed utterly past the splendid defence set up by the Juniors. Near the the close the Clydebank boys again made their presence felt, and when Walker spooned his kick, allowing Lawrie a clear run Robertson, the points seemed assured for them, but the 'Hill keeper saved miraculously, and, as has been said, a most interesting and able game ended in a goalless draw.
