BANKIES ON THE BRINK- (2/3/01)
Clydebank face being wound up on Tuesday after a creditors meeting failed to resolve the clubs difficulties. Administrator Brian Jackson has given the creditors until Tuesday to accept or reject the offer on the table from potential buyer David McGhie.

The implications for Berwick Rangers are huge. IF the Bankies were to go out of business, all points from games against Clydebank would be wiped from the league table as if Clydebank had never existed. That would mean we'd lose six valuable points, where as Stranraer would only lose three. This is a worrying time for Clydebank fans, and Berwick fans. Lets hope CFC survive.

LAMBIE WINS MANAGER OF THE MONTH- (1/2/01)

were also unlucky to lose to Killie in the cup.

Bankies Sold (3/12/00)- BBC Online
Clydebank were finally sold on Friday afternoon, with a west of Scotland consortium of businessmen headed by financial consultant David McGhie taking over the homeless club.

The deal was completed after further negotiations between their legal team and the former owner, Bermuda-based John Hall.

Clydebank adviser David Low, who will stay on at the club to assist in the takeover, said; "The sale of the club has been completed today with formal documents being exchanged on Monday.

"A new board will be announced next week, when it is expected that John Hall will resign."

The news will come as a relief to the Scottish Division Two club's football adviser, Tony Fitzpatrick.

Earlier in the day, he had warned that, if the deal did not go through quickly, there was a danger that they could lose players presently on short-term deals.

Clydebank had also undertaken to pay Cappielow stewards directly on Saturday to ensure that their game in Greenock went ahead, despite the financial difficulties being suffered by landlords Morton.

But they have since handed over a Cheque to Morton to cover the home match with Stranraer.


Forfar Appoint Cooper (22/11/00)
Former Aberdeen, Hibs and St Mirren defender Neil Cooper has been appointed the new manager of Forfar Athletic. Cooper, not to be confused with Neale Cooper at Ross County, was first team manager at Carlisle United a couple of season's back when he visited Shielfield for a pre-season friendly. He is back at Shielfield this Saturday as he tries to reverse the fortunes of the struggling club.

"My ethic as a player was hard work and that is what we will be looking for.

"They got a good result on Saturday and by all accounts they worked hard, so I will be looking them for to keep that going.

"We have Dave Bowman and Ian Ferguson, who both have Premier League experience, coming back from suspension soon and that should also help."


McPhee Walks (14/11/00)
Forfar boss Ian McPhee and his assistant Billy Bennett have left Forfar by 'mutual agreement'. Only two wins this season sees The Loons rooted to the foot of the table and McPhee says it was for the best. He said: "From the moment I joined Forfar I said that if the time came when I realised that things had reached a turning point I would know it myself and I realise that we are now at a crossroads."  Coach Jim Moffat will take over as caretaker manager.
