Clyde's "invincibility" on the 29th of April

Postby Shawfield Boy » Mon May 01, 2017 9:48 pm

I was doing my usual research for Clyde's Legends Lunch on Saturday past (to mark 500 games at Broadwood and the 50th anniversary of the last game of season 66/67), and came across a couple of quirky statistics about Clyde and the 29th of April - it appears we are almost invincible on that day!

We've played 19 games in total "on that day", and only lost once - in 1936 against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, in the final game of the season when both teams had nothing to play for.

The upshot is that

1. we're unbeaten at home on the 29th of April - a record that stretches back to 1913, and consists of 7 wins and 4 draws).

and

2. given the Kilmarnock game above was played on a Wednesday, if we look at Saturday 29th of April only, we're unbeaten in 13 games, stretching back to 1893, with 8 wins and 5 draws.

I rest my case!

If I were you I would be more concerned about the team's invincibility on 6th of May ....

Yes, too true! Just as well football isn't played on paper...
