New Coin Automatics West of Scotland Cup 1st Round
Sat 15th October Holm Park, Yoker KO 2pm
CLYDEBANK v GLENAFTON ATHLETIC
Glenafton travel to Holm Park, Yoker to face Premier new boys Clydebank in the West of Scotland Cup. The Bankies were one of only two sides to do the league double over the Glens last season. A classy late free kick from Paul Allum separated the sides at Holm Park. The corresponding fixture at Loch Park was a bit more one-sided with the visitors in scintillating form and goals from Stevie Dymock (2), and Ross Campbell helping them to a 3-0 win.
Clydebank are still acclimatising to their first season in the top flight of Junior football since their return to the junior realms. The league campaign began with two narrow defeats on the trot, away to Rob Roy (3-2) and at home to Petershill (1-0). Budgie’s boys bounced with a trilling five-four victory over Pollok at Newllandsfield. Back down to earth with a bump as fellow promotees and bogey side Ashfield ran out 3-0 winners at Yoker. The trip to Meadow was a close affair with the home side winning by the odd goal in three. An out of sorts Arthurlie won 4-2 at Holm Park to record their first league win of the season. A point at Townhead (1-1) was swiflty followed by another three last week with a 2-0 win over the languishing Ladeside of Kilbirnie.
Former Afton Lad: Gordon Moffat
Gordon joined Glenafton, then under Gordon Dalziel, in September 2009 from East Stirlingshire having had previous senior experience with Albion Rovers (06/07) and Annan Athletic (00/01-05/06). He made 47 starts for the club during his two seasons at Loch Park and scored two goals, one at Talbot in the league and the other at Beith in the Ayrshire Cup. ‘Moff’s’ versatility in defence or midfield was greatly appreciated by the home support and he moved onto Clydebank at the start of season 2010/11 with best wishes from the club.
