2011 Review February: Bankies make their move

Hannah Park proved to be a happy hunting ground as the Glens came back from a goal down at the break to secure the three points with goals from Stephen Docherty, his first for the club, and Paul McKenzie. The win extended Glenafton’s unbeaten league run to six games (W3 D3) and catapulted them to 5th in the league, now six points behind leaders Whitletts, each having played 11 games.

Aspirations of closing the gap crumbled when a classy Clydebank came calling and cuffed the Glens 3-0, including a brace from the dynamic Dymock known as Stevie.  Defender Scott Wilson, making his home debut saw red and due to a long-term injury has been side-lined ever since. More woes at Western Park as the Glens failed to break down the Renfrew defence marvellously marshalled by Neil Shearer, while the ‘Frew converted two of their handful of chances.  The Glens bombarded Bellshill in the early exchanges at Loch Park but had only a Jim Wilson goal to show for their dominance before the visitors drew level through a Stephen Bennet.  Danger-man Sean McKenna, who had scored all 4 goals in Bellshill Scottish Junior Cup win over Glens earlier in the season, put the visitors ahead with a 25 yard screamer, before Gareth Armstrong ensured the points were shared with a low drive five minutes from time. By the close of the month the Glens were 8th in the league with a W4 D5 L5 record, 2 points ahead of the relegation zone and 9 points behind leaders Clydebank.
