Clydebank High School progressed to the third round of the U13 League Cup with a comprehensive 9-2 win over the Vale of Leven Academy (VOLA).

VOLA had the best chance to open the scoring after an even first eight minutes with both teams trying to get a hold on the game. A ball was played over the top from midfield and Scott Inglis lifted his effort over Gavin Neil in the Clydebank goal but his effort was narrowly wide.

Clydebank took the lead after 10 minutes thanks to the first of three goals from Cameron Neil. Conor Gray whipped a corner in from the right and Neil rose well to thump a header past Vale keeper Callum Caldwell. 

Clydebank added a second on 17 minutes after forward Lewis Jamieson was chopped down 35 yards out. Jay Kearny stepped up and curled a shot towards goal that lobbed Caldwell to double their advantage. 

Shortly after, lively winger Alisdair Scholes made it 3-0. A defensive mixup allowed Scholes to nick in at the far post and head the ball over the line from close range.

Stuart Alexander then pulled a goal back for the Vale just before half time. The forward picked the ball up 35 yards out and ran at the heart of the Clydebank defence before slotting the ball past Gavin Neil to give hope to the hosts heading into half time.

Two minutes in to the second half, Jamieson should have opened his account. After once again beating a number of players, he cut inside and rattled the post with a driven shot from 20 yards but the ball bounced to safety. 

Four minutes later, Alexander added his and VOLA’s second. In similar fashion to his first, the ball was played over the top which he gathered before chipping it over onrushing keeper to make it 3-2.

Ten minutes in to the second half, Jamieson added Clydebank High’s fourth. Superb link up play down the left created the space for him to take a touch before shooting across the goalkeeper to get his first of the day. 

Two goals in quick succession for Clydebank High midfielder Cameron Bell saw him net his hattrick. First, great movement in the box saw him head past Caldwell for the second time, before stabbing the ball home from a corner to make it 6-2 to Clydebank High. 

VOLA’s best chance of a consolation goal came from Josh Boyle. A mazy run from the impressive full back almost halved the deficit but his effort didn’t test Neil. 

Jamieson, who caused the VOLA defence problems all afternoon, won his side a penalty with ten minutes remaining. Once again displaying his tricks, he weaved his way to the edge of the box where he was chopped down just inside the area. Jamieson took the penalty himself, sending Caldwell the wrong way to put the result beyond doubt, making it VOLA 2 - Clydebank High 7.

Substitute Dylan Paterson made his mark five minutes from time. He gathered the ball just inside VOLA’s half and ran at their defence, calmly stroking the ball past Caldwell to make it 8-2.

Despite knowing the result was beyond reach, VOLA continued to press well and played a high line and successful offside trap for the remainder of the match.

Man of the Match Jamieson rounded off the scoring shortly before the final whistle. He beat two men with his impressive display of dribbling and fired a left footed shot from the edge of the area that nestled in the bottom corner of the goal to ensure an emphatic 9-2 victory for the visitors.
