Football was the main event down at Clydebank Sports Hub on Sunday as two Clydebank teams put rivalry aside to raise money for charity.

Kilbowie AFC faced off against Dalmuir United in the West of Scotland Cup last-32 in an afternoon when the teams had joined forced pre-kick-off to raise money for men’s mental health charity Brothers in Arms.

One of the beauties of cup football is there has to be a winner, a fact that means unfortunately someone will go home having lost the match and United came out on top, winning 3-1.

But for many, there were no losers in this one as the teams put local bragging rights to one side for the day as they encouraged those watching to give some cash for a good cause.

On the day, there were banners, donation buckets and staff present representing the charity, with the teams setting a target of £500 before the match.

A Just Giving page closed at £445 on Monday night and added with the money raised on the day, organisers are confident they will well surpass that target.

Beaten manager Jordan Woodford said after the game: “It would have been good to get a result but I’m proud of how far the boys managed to get in the tournament, and even prouder that they managed to raise as much as they did for a great cause”

Organiser Daryl Smith, also of Kilbowie, told the Post: “The turnout was great I thought there was a good amount of people down and thankful to everyone of them that came down and donated money.

“Unfortunately the result didn’t go our way but that’s football.

“We’ve raised a great amount of money and are happy with that as we’ve come together and showed a community spirit.”
