Match Report


Showing a polish and punch that their opponents could not match, Ayr United ran out worthy winners of this League Cup Supplementary play off at New Kilbowie Park.

The Honest Men were twice behind but rallied to draw level and go on to a well merited success. Ayr now meet Celtic in the quarter finals.

Ayr had a touch of class in everything they did with their right back Malone the best player afield. How fitting that he should score the best goal of the match.

Former Aberdeen player, Arthur Paterson put Clydebank ahead in the 28th minute. He was on the spot to slam a Collumbine opening to the far corner.

Two minutes later Ayr equalised. Malone went right down the touchline before swinging in a low ball into the middle where Ingram ran it over the line.

It was thrills galore in the second half. Boyd took a free kick and Moore outjumped the Ayr defence to head cleanly into the net.

Battling Ayr hit back to grab two goals in a minute, both coming from perfect McMillan centres. Ingram nodded the first to Black who headed beyond Maddens reach. Ingram headed the second and again Madden had no chance.

Clydebank brought on McGhee as a substitute in the 81st minute but Ayr were now moving like a well oiled machine.

Malone rocketed a fourth goal from 30 yards in the 85th minute.
