Clyde forward David Gormley has entered the club’s history books after scoring four goals in the 5-0 win at Berwick Rangers on Saturday.

The 27-year-old became the first man to achieve the feat for The Bully Wee since Danny Masterton, who achieved the feat against Arbroath in April 1982.

Clyde historian Gordon Sydney told the club website: "Danny had grabbed his double by the eighth minute and got his hat-trick by the 21st minute. That was how it stood until half-time.

“Then, ten minutes into the second half, Pat Nevin made it 4-0. Danny got his fourth in 76 minutes and that ended the scoring.

"His second goal came from a Steve Evans corner and was described as 'magnificent' seeing it was a back-heel volley!"

Other members of the exclusive club include Joe Ward, Basil Keogh, Dougie Wallace, Jock Buchanan, Billy McPhail, Willie Martin, Bill Boyd and Peter Cunningham.
