Junior Football

Ronnie and I have been talking about going along to a Junior football match for some time. We eventually plumped for this weekend and my hometown team Clydebank.

We saw them win a thrilling Scottish Junior Cup tie against Lochee United by 3 goals to 2. Clydebank's second and third goals were both awesome 25-yard strikes. The winner being described as 'a wonder goal' by one Lochee fan attempting to console his shattered pal at the the final whistle.

We were behind the Clydebank goal for the second half and the keeper, Barry John Corr, formerly with Celtic and Motherwell impressed me. In addition to making a few vital saves late on he marshalled his defence well, constantly shouting instructions and amusingly screaming at his outfield colleagues to cease their pile-on celebration inside their own half after their equaliser as Lochee were preparing to kick-off.

A report of the game from the Clydebank website is here. My photos are here and Ronnie's are at his Flickr page here.
