Match Report


Clydebank clinched two valuable points when they comfortably defeated Queens in this Combined Reserve League contest at Kilbowie Park on Saturday. Bankies have had poor results since the second section of the Combined League commenced last month. They have played four games lost two, drawn one, and with their victory at the weekend collected a total of three points.

One player in the local team who always had the ambition to be a top scoring forward - right back Graham Small - has been receiving his opportunity in two recent games in his new position of centre forward.

He is certainly not disappointing the Steedman brothers, for on Saturday he plunged home a well taken goal just two minutes from the final whistle.

Graham, also scored his hat trick when playing centre against Dumbarton Juvenile Select on Wednesday last in Bankies win of seven goals to one.

Play started with Queens being the aggressive side but it was Clydebank who had the first shot at goal when Archie Rankin nodded his attempt over the crossbar.

With the match being evenly contested a sudden burst from Clydebank resulted in a penalty when Inside-left Tony Moy was brought down in the box. Tony took the spot kick and without hesitation confidently placed the ball into the back of the net in the 39th minute.

This was the first of Tony Moy's wonder goals for which he can claim full credit. The home team pressed hard from the restart and it was Moy who put Bankies further ahead with a shot after only seven minutes play. It was deflected into the net by Queens centre half.

Then his third goal came in the 69th minute when a solo run by Archie Rankin gave Tony his opportunity to score and he did so with the greatest of ease and banged homewards giving Keeper Junior no chance at all.

But nine minutes before Bankies had scored their third, an endless attack by the visitors resulted in their only counter. The scorer was inside-right McChesney who rammed home from point blank range on his rebounding shot.

Several attempts to narrow the goal gap by Queens failed miserably with their close-up shots either being slammed over the bar or by the post.

Then in the final two minutes Clydebank placed home another two goals to complete the scoring. Small put the first in the 88th minute and one minute later McGhee with no aid, rocketed the home teams fifth goal into the back of the net.
