Hide Match Report

by Graham Forrest

The hosts made life difficult for The Bully Wee in the first half and only Pat Clarke came close to breaking the deadlock when he broke free and saw his low drive cleared away from the goal.

No changes were made at half-time but Clyde's form immediately improved after the break and after 57 minutes Alan Trouten opened the scoring. The winger latched onto a ball down the channel and finished expertly, chipping the onrushing 'keeper.

Clyde were now dominant and substitute Roddy MacLennan got the second goal with a neat finish following good work by Neil McGregor.

A cut-back by Gary McSwegan was turned into his own net by a Yarmouth defender before the best moment of the match made it 0-4. The impressive MacLennan got his second with a spectacular volley from a McSwegan cross.

Yarmouth joint-manager, Paul Tong said:-

“It was a splendid experience for our young lads, especially the youth team players out there and I’m proud of them. We really appreciate what Clyde have done in coming here and thank John Brown and his team; the afternoon reflected great credit on everybody.”
