Montrose 2-3 Clyde

Stuart McColm bagged the winner as Clyde came back from a two-goal half-time deficit to beat Montrose in their Division Three opener at Links Park.

The home side looked to be on their way to all three points thanks to goals from Lloyd Young and Paul Watson before Bryan Gilfillan, John Neill and McColm struck in the second half to turn the game around.

Winger Young curled the Gable Endies ahead in the 10th minute with a 20-yard strike into the top right-hand corner.

Midfielder Watson volleyed into the top left-hand corner to double the advantage 20 minutes from the interval.

But Gilfillan found the bottom right-hand corner 11 minutes after the restart to halve the deficit.

Four minutes later, Jim Duffy's side were level when Neill converted McColm's cross from close range.

Striker McColm then drilled into the bottom left-hand corner to seal the turnaround nine minutes from time.
