Another blow for Clydebank. The annual football competition between west of Scotland FE college staffs reached the semi-final stage recently; alas for the Bankies, Langside defeated Clydebank 3-1.
In the pub debriefing after the game, the Clydebank boys were waxing lyrical about their college and its financial difficulties - and who could blame them?
The Langside goalkeeper, a business studies lecturer by the name of Willie Paterson, came up with the perfect solution. As a lifelong supporter of the equally troubled Clydebank FC, which has come up with the novel idea of transplanting itself across the Irish Sea, Paterson suggested the college moves to Dublin.
