Clydebank High School picked up another win on Thursday afternoon as they comprehensively beat Bearsden Academy 9-0. Three first half goals from Robbie Campbell, Robert Clunie and Eddie Ramsay ensured that the tie was all but over by half-time. Both Clunie and Ramsay bagged their second, while Darren Wright also scored a second-half double as Greg Forrest and Callum Craig each netted.
Lining up in a 3-5-2 formation, Clydebank started the brighter team and went in front with six minutes on the clock. Greg Forrest’s corner from the left was whipped in and Robbie Campbell was in the right place at the right time to head Clydebank into the lead.   
Bearsden almost equalised three minutes later. A long ball from Bearsden goalkeeper Nick Allan caught the Clydebank defence out and just as striker Daniel McGarrie was about to pull the trigger, Clydebank wing back Jack Muirhead recovered well to block the resulting shot. 
All afternoon the hosts proved dangerous on the counter attack, and a minute later they doubled their advantage. Robert Clunie picked the ball up at the edge of the area after great work in midfield and curled a right footed shot that nestled in the bottom left of Allan’s goal.
On the half hour mark, Clydebank added their third. Lewis Costello weaved his way through the midfield and threaded a fine pass for Eddie Ramsay to slot the ball under Allan for his first of the game.

Five minutes after the restart, Clydebank added a fourth. With the result all but tied up, Clydebank settled into their passing rhythm. Wing back Callum Hodge played a delightful ball up the channel that the ever alert Clunie latched on to, before calmly stroking the ball for his second. 
Eddie Ramsay then grabbed his second and Clydebank’s fifth with a sweetly struck shot that flew past Allan at his near post.
With the score 5-0, Clydebank High manager Euan Anderson made a triple substitution, replacing Jack Muirhead, Robbie Campbell and Eddie Ramsay with Cameron McGrath, William Bowen and Alan Graham. 
High on confidence and comfortably passing their way through a tired Bearsden side, Clydebank proceeded to score four more. Calum Craig then got in on the act to make it 6-0. He found himself in space at the edge of the area and produced a wonderful delicate lob that left Bearsden manager George Cooper watching his goalkeeper pick the ball out of the net for a sixth time.
Once again, after some patient build up play out from the back, Bearsden conceded a free kick at the half way line. Set piece taker Forrest fired an audacious shot towards goal that Allan got a hand to, but couldn’t prevent it from crossing the line. 
With full time approaching, and a weary Bearsden side now not showing much promise of their own, a late double from Darren Wright rounded off a convincing win for the hosts.
First, a mention must go to Greg Forrest whose set pieces caused Bearsden problems all afternoon, and it was no different with two minutes remaining. Centre back Forrest whipped a corner in from the left, and with Bearsden unable to clear their lines, Wright was on hand to prod the ball home.
Two minutes later and the rout was complete. Yet another fine corner kick from Forrest saw great movement from Wright to thump a header past Allan.

Star Player
Clydebank High School
Bearsden Academy
Robert Clunie - bamboozled the Bearsden defence all afternoon. Scored two and set as many up. Greg Forrest a close second, his delivery from set pieces were first class.
Daniel McGarrie - Unlucky not to score and created a couple of opportunities for his teammates.
Magic Moment
Clydebank High School
Bearsden Academy
Greg Forrest's free kick from the half way line was the finest moment in a great afternoon for the hosts.
Daniel McGarrie's one on one with the Clydebank goalkeeper was the closest Bearsden came to scoring on an a disappointing afternoon for the visitors.
