Biography

Trialist brought in from St. Roch’s and for his debut on 16 November 1968 he was introduced to a Motherwell team who would romp away with the Second Division Championship. Their side contained Peter McCloy in goal, Joe Wark at full back, and a devastating front three of Jackie McInally, father of Alan McInally, who had been a great servant to Kilmarnock winning a First Division Championship medal with them when they beat Hearts 2-0 on the final game of the 1964-65 season to win the title on goal average. The other two were Tom Forsyth who would later join Rangers and was deadly from 2-3 inches, and Dixie Deans who would later join Celtic, great goal scorer, but wasn’t so deadly from the penalty spot!

Young John Brady had a very busy afternoon in goal that Saturday afternoon at Kilbowie, with a late penalty (not taken by Deans), sealing a very comfortable 4-0 victory for the Steelmen . The scoreline however does not tell the whole story, the Clydebank defence like many other defences that year, was given a torrid time by this Motherwell side. Time and again John Brady pulled off stunning saves to defy them and without him Motherwell could easily, very easily, have reached double figures. Motherwell scored an incredible 112 goals that season and only dropped 8 points in 36 games, they were more than worthy champions.

As for John Brady he returned to St. Roch’s who had another goalkeeper, who was even younger, whom Clydebank had already trialled 2-3 times previous to this, and who we thought had slipped through our fingers, but fate was to step in and deliver him to Kilbowie. However that is another story for another day.

You may have only played one game for Clydebank John Brady, but the boy did good!

    The absence of Dick Madden in the Clydebank goal was obvious at this game at Kilbowie Park. Unfortunately for Clydebank, Madden was detained in bed with flu over the weekend, and his place had to be t
