Full Results Against East Stirling Clydebank

The short-lived East Stirling Clydebank came about because the Steedman brothers, Jack and Charles, owners of East Stirling, were determined to build a new Scottish League club away from East Stirling’s then home Firs Park.

In 1964 the Steedman brothers, Jack and Charlie, owners of East Stirlingshire F.C., controversially merged their club with Clydebank Juniors. The new club (whose name was usually abbreviated to E.S. Clydebank) inherited East Stirlingshire’s place in Division Two, playing home matches at New Kilbowie Park, Clydebank. After a year, a legal challenge by East Stirlingshire supporters led to them resuming their former identity back in Falkirk.

The Steedmans elected to remain at Clydebank, establishing a new club at senior level.

E.S. Clydebank’s single season is generally considered by historians and statisticians as a contiguous part of East Stirlingshire’s record, as the merged club was never elected to the or League in its own right.

Ayr United spent that single season with ES Clydebank playing two league matches with them, but matches ending in a draw, 1-1 at Ayr and 0-0 atNew Kilbowie Park
