Herald Article on 10th October

There was an article written in the Herald on Thursday 10th October concerning Scottish Hockey’s scheduling of games at central venues, specifically at Glasgow Green on 19/20 October. The Club would like to confirm that this article was not sanctioned and the comments made in the article do not represent the official views of the Club. In particular, we wish to make it clear that the statement that Clydesdale Western “would rather not play in any future event of this type which is not hosted at Titwood” is not reflective of the club’s position.

Both PSL Clydesdale and Milne Craig Clydesdale Western are supportive of Scottish Hockey’s efforts to promote the sport and will happily take part in centrally located fixtures in the future. The Club expects Scottish Hockey to be supportive to those clubs that have invested significant sums of money in creating their own international standard pitches and to consider this when scheduling central events in the future.

Goals Galore

The Men were at home this Saturday in a busy day at Titwood with 5 games played at Titwood, In the main game PSL Clydesdale 1s won 5-0 vs Edinburgh Uni. The score was only 1-0 a half time and the students were playing well but the Men kept the pace high to the end of the match and eventually won 5-0. Goals from Rory McCann, Ciaran Crawford (2), Gregor Hirst and Ross Mcpherson. The clean sheet was the teams first of the year and well earned by Andrew Scobie who had several great saves to keep the Students at bay.

Milne Craig Clydesdale Western were away at GHK and won 12-0 in a one sided game. There were hat-tricks from Holly Cram and Nicky Skrastin, and 2 for Fiona Bruce and Cat Ralph and 1 each from Morag McLellan and Anna-Mae Morton.

First team draw with Kelburne

PSL Clydesdale fought out a hard earned draw with Kelburne today at Titwood. In a fast paced game there were chances at each end before Ciaran Crawford opened the scoring from a short corner midway through the half. Kelburne were spurred into increased action and Clydesdale failed to clear a cross from the right which was volleyed towards goals before appearing to strike a defender. Mark Ralph scored the resulting penalty flick. 1-1 at half time. Clydesdale started second half well and soon forced a short corner which this time was converted by Andrew Allan. The lead was short lived as a cross from the left was deflected into his own net by Michael McKenzie. The games continued to be fast and furious and both teams had spells defending with 10 as first Fraser Hirst and then Adam Bain picked up yellows cards. Despite a late short corner to Clydesdale and both teams best efforts there were no more goals.

First Teams both win

Clydesdale Western defeated Dundee Wanderers 5-2 in the sunshine at Titwood this afternoon. A confident performance saw goals rattle in from Jenny Eadie and Holly Cram twice for a 3-0 half time lead.
