Mixed fortunes at Glasgow Green

Milne Craig Clydesdale Western lost their table top clash vs Grove Menzieshill 3-1. Grove were 2-0 up before Holly Cram pulled on back but Grove remained strong and scored again before the end. On the Sunday the Ladies won comfortably 7-0 against Kelburne 1sts.

It was mixed fortune to for the Men. A slow start saw Dundee Wanderers go 2-0 up within ten minutes on Saturday , the Men stayed focused and pulled the two goals back in the second half. More chances were created but it wasn’t to be and the Men had to settle for a draw. On Sunday the Men won 4-3 vs Western Wildcats. In a frantic start Clydesdale had most of the possession but Wildcats were very dangerous on the attack when they had the opportunity and a slip by Neil Fulton let Scott McCartney set up Dougie Simpson for the first goal. Clydesdale came back and created several chances before a quickly taken free hit was worked to the back post for Michael Cockburn to equalise.  The game remained at a frantic pace and Rory McCann made a great led in the box and was bundled over by Mansouri for a penalty stroke, converted by Fraser Hirst. Western came back with a fast flowing passing move which saw an easy tap in for Scott McCartney. The pace did not drop into the final quarter of the game and Western converted a short corner for a 3-2 lead . Clydesdale were able to convert their own short corner to equalise before Ciaran Crawford’s dive diverted a great cross from Rory McCann for a 4-3 win.

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.
