OPEN­ING DAY VIC­TORY FOR BULLY WEE

Rutherglen Reformer - - LEAGUE TWO -

Stir­ling Al­bion..............0 Clyde....................1 Clyde started their sea­son with a nar­row win on Satur­day against Stir­ling Al­bion at Forth­bank.

The Bully Wee started the match well and were first to come close to an open­ing goal when Michael Bolo­choweckyj’s header forced Stir­ling‘keeper Smith into a su­perb save.

Mo­ments later, John Gib­son was also in ac­tion at the other end to pre­vent a low shot from find­ing the net.

Shortly be­fore half-time, Archie Camp­bell found some space at the edge of the box and put a shot just wide.

A very tight sec­ond half saw few chances on goal at ei­ther end, but Stir­ling had a claim for hand­ball in the box waved away by the ref­eree.

On 75 min­utes, the match of­fi­cial was given a much eas­ier de­ci­sion though, when David Gormley took ad­van­tage of a mis­take by the Bi­nos’Mark Staunton to get goal-side of the de­fender and force him into a pro­fes­sional foul only yards from goal. Staunton was red-carded and Scott Lin­ton stepped up to score.

Clyde, Gib­son, Mitchell, Bolo­choweckyj, Smith, Lin­ton, McLaugh­lin Mur­ray (Marsh - 60’ ), Bris­bane (Fer­gu­son -79), Higgins, Camp­bell, Gormley (McQueen 88).
