Su­per First Di­vi­sion

Cly­de­bank switched places with Glen­cairn at the top of the table fol­low­ing a 5-0 de­mo­li­tion of Mary­hill. Striker Nicky Lit­tle scored a hat-trick of head­ers to add to the scor­ing and put The Bankies three points clear.

Third-placed Kil­syth Rangers have been in free-fall in re­cent weeks and their poor run of form con­tin­ued with a shock 5-1 loss at Peter­shill.

Ayr­shire out­fit Gir­van, who The Glens have de­feated twice this sea­son, put to­gether wins over Mary­hill and Shotts this week to go fourth. The Seasiders could go top of the league if they win their two games in hand.

Shet­tle­ston’s pro­mo­tion bid was de­railed with a 4-3 loss to Irvine Vic­to­ria while Irvine Meadow edged Yoker 2-1.
