Rutherglen Reformer - - Rugby -

Clyde..................... 4 An­nan Ath­letic ..... 2 The Bully Wee moved joint top in the Lad­brokes League 2 ta­ble thanks to an ex­cel­lent win over An­nan Ath­letic at Broad­wood.

Clyde took an early lead in the match when Archie Camp­bell’s su­perb deep cross was met by Michael Blo­choweckyj, who headed the ball into the roof of the net.

The lead was then dou­bled with only 15 min­utes on the clock, as David Gormley reg­is­tered his first goal for the club with a fine header from Chris Mitchell’s cor­ner kick.

How­ever, An­nan came back into the match when Matthew Flynn found space in­side the box to make it 2-1. The two-goal lead was soon re­stored though, when Sean Higgins was fouled in the box. Scott Lin­ton stepped to score from the spot and main­tain his 100 per cent penalty record.

Marsh did even­tu­ally get on the score­line with ten min­utes left to play though, as he cap­i­talised on a goal­keep­ing er­ror to find the net from close range. Bryan Gil­fil­lan got a con­so­la­tion goal for the Gal­a­bankies near the end.

Beam­ing Broad­wood boss Barry Fer­gu­son said: “I’ve a great bunch who work hard at their game. They put so much into things it is nice they have been re­warded with a win. Peo­ple ques­tioned sign­ing a num­ber of boys who are over 30 but these guys are su­per-fit – they are fit­ter than un­der 20s.”

De­lighted Barry Fer­gu­son
