Reserves Power On

Clyde continued their unbeaten run in the Reserve League Cup by beating Stenhousemuir by 3 goals to 2. Stephen Connelly (pictured) was the hero for The Bully Wee, netting the winner with 15 minutes to go.

It was a hard workout for the youngsters and coach Dougie Bell was not happy at his side’s first half showing.

After the game Dougie commented, “I was delighted with their efforts in the second half.”

“We had a terrible first half starting from the fact we conceded in the first minute but fortunately Roddy MacLennan equalised. Again we went behind but Sean McKenna got another leveller before Stephen grabbed the points.”

Dougie added, “We needed to make a couple of changes at half time to shake things up a bit and I got the reaction I was looking for from the players.”

“The Reserve Cup has been important to us in assisting some players to keep match fitness while giving others the chance to gain more experience and tonight was no exception. There is a gap between our under-19 side and the first team and this competition has helped us considerably.”

“We now have three games left against Hamilton, Partick and Queen’s Park respectively and if we finish in the top two we will reach the semi-finals. It was vital to keep the momentum going and that was why it was so good to get the three points tonight.”
