26 June 2019 – Dennistoun Thistle 7 – 1 Clyde Thistle – Glasgow Green – KO 8pm
Last night Dennistoun Thistle were back in action against Clyde Thistle. Clyde Thistle are another new team like ourselves who will be competing in an amateur league for the first time next season. This was our second meeting with them after playing them back at Friendly 8. That game finished 3-2 to Dennistoun Thistle and was a hard fought competitive game that was anyone’s to win. We were also aware that Clyde had won their friendly prior to this one 14-1! So, this was going to be a good test for us.
Last night proved to be all Dennistoun Though and they pulled out their second best result to date. It was 3- 0 by half time and could have been more if a few of the players had composed themselves for a finish!
However it was not all one way traffic though. Clyde Thistle had some good bits of attacking play too and our keeper had to pull out a few superb saves. 2 of their set pieces in particular could have caused us problems, but thankfully Reidy got his hands to them.
The second half was similar to the first. Dennistoun made a lot of changes to get everyone a good amount of time on the park and by 60 mins all our subs were on the pitch to get a good half an hour under them. However the changes in personnel did not affect our attacking ability and we were able to score another 4 goals in the second half.
Clyde Thistle got their goal from a well taken penalty midway through the second half and it spurred them on to try and get back in the game but Thistle proved too much for them last night.
Another enjoyable game against a side like ourselves who are just starting to find their feet and we wish them all the best for the season ahead!
Full time score: Dennistoun Thistle 7-1 Clyde Thistle.
