Great Yarmouth Town 0 v 4 Clyde

Sat, 12th Jul 2008 8:00pm

Around one hundred Clyde fans enjoyed a solid start to the pre-season tour today.

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.

Overall, a good work-out against a decent side whose fitness clearly began to wane as the match went on.

CLYDE (3-5-2): Cherrie, Gibson, Higgins, Brown, McGregor, Kettlewell, Trouten, Ruari MacLennan, Clarke, McKay, Trialist. SUBS USED: Roddy MacLennan, Murch, McGowan, McSwegan, Stephen Connolly, Sean Connolly, McCole.

Tomorrow will see the squad take part in a double training session before the closed door match against Norwich City on Monday.
