Clydebank Mercury 2007s maintained their perfect start to their Paisley, Johnstone and District Youth Football League campaign at the weekend with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Langcraigs.

An exciting prospect with both sides beginning the day joint top of the division four table, Clydebank got off to a flyer thanks to a first minute strike from Mikey Houston who remained composed to get on the end of a through pass from Leon Williamson and finish well.

With close to 30 goals to their name in just three matches, it came as a surprise that the floodgates didn’t open after racing into such an early lead with Langcraigs doing well to hold the relentless Clydebank attack at bay.

Against recent form, Clydebank couldn’t quite add to their lead as the visitors slowly but surely fought back into it, exerting some pressure on the Mercury defence as the first-half progressed.

And their pressure was rewarded with a equaliser from the spot before the break.

Clydebank then had Paul Boyle in goal to thank for keeping it level at the interval with a fine stop denying the Lang forward.

Mercury rung the changes at the break with Max McKinlay and Jakob Jedrzejcyzk taking to the field. And the substitution looked inspired with both youngsters linking up well with Williamson in midfield as the hosts restored their one-goal lead.

A misplaced pass from the visiting keeper handed Williamson the chance to nick it at the edge of the area and rifle it home.

To their credit, Langcraigs once again dug in and restored parity moments later - just minutes after Bankies captain Kayden Haliday missed a big chance from just two yards.

Chasing their fourth successive win, Clydebank’s confidence never wavered as they went in search of that winner and they were awarded with a spot-kick.

Houston stepped up to add to his first minute effort for his second of the afternoon.

Some late drama ensued with Clydebank reduced to 10-men for dissent but the youngsters held on to make it 12 points from 12.

Mercury are back in league action tonight against Drumchapel Green as they aim to make it five wins from five.
