Celtic v Clyde – In glorious sunshine, and in presence of a crowd of 10,00 persons, these teams played off their return league fixture. The gathering included Mr Michael Davitt, and Dr Tanner, M.P., who were received with great cheering. Mr Micheal Davitt performed the ceremony of kicking off, and the Clyde having lost the toss, he quietly slipped the ball to Sawers, the centre forward, bowing his acknowldgements to the crowd the while. The visitors were the first to show up, their attack being characterised by strong dashing play. Doyle and Reynolds were equal to the task of beating them off. The Celtic replied with a raid of the opposite end, where McCallum and Brady distinguished themselves on the right. Maxwell was equal to them, however. The play throughout the whole of this haf was very even, the Clyde giving as much as they got. The home side were minus Madden and Dowds, while Clyde were without McLaren at half-back. M’Innes scored for the Clyde after thirty- five minute’s play, but he was adjudged off-side. At half-time there had been no scoring.. In the second half the play was quite as fast as that shown in the first portion. The Clyde showed surprising form. The Celtic shooting was well directed, but they were beaten by McCorkindale, when a goal seemed assured. Doyle, Kelly, and McMahon were closely watched, and they fairly excelled themselves. Towards the close the Celts should have scored, as they had all the best of the play. Victory was denied them, however, as at call of time they had failed to follow up their previous League vistory. The result therefore was :- Celtic, nil; Clyde, nil.
