Full Results Against Clydebank

There were many incarnations of Clydebank Football clubs over the years.
The First Clydebank F.C.
The first senior club to represent the town OF Clydebank was formed in 1888, playing home matches at Hamilton Park. They entered the Scottish Cup several times, making their last appearance in the competition proper in the 1893/94 competition. In addition they were members of the Scottish Federation (league) from 1891 to 1893. This club folded in 1895, to be resurrected in 1899, with this second incarnation also based at Hamilton Park. They retained their membership of the Scottish Football Association (SFA) until 1902, but which time they were practically defunct.
Clydebank F.C. (1914 to 1931)

This Clydebank F.C. were the first club to represent the town in league football. They were formed in 1914 and immediately elected to the Scottish Football League (SFL). After suffering from financial difficulties, they resigned from the SFL and disbanded in 1931. During their time in the league, they were runners-up in Division Two twice, in 1922-23 and 1924-25. Their home ground was Clydeholm.

Clydebank Juniors F.C. (1899 to 1964)

A Clydebank junior club were formed in the village of Duntocher (now considered part of Clydebank) in 1899, under the name of Duntocher F.C. This was as the result of a breakaway from another local junior club, Duntocher Hibernian. They changed their name to Clydebank Juniors in 1900 on moving to the town itself. They were based at the original Kilbowie Park prior to the construction of an upgraded ground (often called “New Kilbowie”) in 1939. Around this time they were one of Scotland’s leading junior sides, winning the Scottish Junior Cup in 1942 as well as numerous other honours.

The club continued in junior football until 1964 when they were controversially merged with senior club, East Stirlingshire, bringing Scottish League football back to the town for the first time in over thirty years. They also won the West of Scotland Cup in 1949/50.

Clydebank F.C. (1965 to 2002)

The second Clydebank F.C. to play Scottish League football was formed in 1965 by the Steedman brothers, who were still convinced of the potential for senior football in the town despite the abortive merger with East Stirling the previous year. Although in many senses a resumption of Clydebank Juniors, albeit at a different level, they were technically a brand new club. Clydebank had to wait a year in the Combined Reserve League competing against Jordanhill Training College, Glasgow Corporation Transport, and the Third XI’s of the Old Firm before being elected to the Scottish League in 1966.

Clydebank spent three seasons in the Premier Division, becoming the first club to play in all three Scottish League divisions after league reconstruction in 1975; the last season they were in the top flight was in 1987. Clydebank also reached the Scottish Cup semi-final in 1990 while playing in the First Division.

In the early 1990s, they were sponsored by the local pop group Wet Wet Wet. Their home, New Kilbowie Park was notable in this era as one of the first all-seater stadiums in British football, largely due to the installation of wooden benches on the terracing.

The club’s fortunes began to decline after New Kilbowie was sold by the Steedmans in 1996 and a promised new stadium in the town failed to materialise. Clydebank spent six years playing “home” games at first Boghead Park, Dumbarton, followed by Cappielow Park, Greenock, with the inevitable decline in support. During their time at Boghead Park, the Steedman family sold the club to Dr John Hall, a Bermuda-based businessman. The proceeds from Kilbowie Park were used to set up schools for the sport in America.

When the combined efforts of United Clydebank Supporters (UCS), the Football Association of Ireland, the Scottish Football Association and the Scottish Football League brought about the rejection of a move to Dublin, the owners made a number of attempts to relocate the club as a franchise to a number of alternative towns including Galashiels and Carlisle. During this period, the club were reduced to operating from a single cramped portable cabin.

At the end of the 1999/2000 season, Clydebank were relegated from the First Division after winning just one game all season achieving only 10 points.

The club’s SFL and SFA identity finally disappeared in 2002. After the liquidation of Airdrieonians, a consortium led by Jim Ballantyne put forward a bid to fill the vacancy in the SFL and build a new club in Airdrie from scratch. That bid was unsuccessful, but the new club then turned their attention to buying out Clydebank’s few assets from their administrators, and with UCS not being allowed to match their offer to the administrator, the club was moved to Airdrie as Airdrie United and under that title took their place in the Second Division for the 2002/03 season.
