It was a mixture of Reserve and Youth team players who took part in this Testimonial for Spiders' goalkeeper Grant Clark and the Junior side went ahead midway through the first half. Roy McBain drew us level twelve minutes into the second half when he ran through before side-footing the ball past Clark. With both the reserves, having been in action the previous day, the side was supplemented by three from the youth team plus a couple of Downfield players who came on in the latter stages of the game. And it was one of the Spiders who scored the goal which won the game when Scott Taylor got in a shot from a tight angle, but the credit for the goal went to the Trialist who squeezed the ball over the line. Coach Gordon Wallace said, "It was a worthwhile exercise for the long serving keeper's Testimonial with a decent crowd turning out to see the match."
