Clyde 3 Stirling Albion 2: Gormley grabs glory with cup treble
Gormley grabbed the glory as Barry Ferguson‘s side put their wretched run of league results behind them to secure a tie with Championship side Ayr United at Somerset Park on February 11.
Liam Caddis was fouled by Clyde keeper John Gibson, earning him a yellow card, and Blair Henderson did the needful from the spot.
But within a minute Gormley rammed a 20-yard strike in off the bar to put the Bully Wee back on level terms.
The all-action start continued on 10 minutes when Gormley struck again, knocking the ball home after a Peter MacDonald effort came back off the post.
And when Gormley smashed home a third, courtesy of another assist from MacDonald, it seemed as if Clyde were sailing through.
But nine minutes from time Gibson was sent off for a second yellow card, this time bringing down Darren Smith.
Once more Henderson found the net with the penalty to ensure a nervous finish for Ferguson and his troops, but the 10 men held on to go through.
