Annan Athletic 0 Stirling Albion 1

Following defeat to Peterhead the Beanos hopes of a promotion play-off place were all but over. It would take a freakish set of results to keep Stirling in the hunt and it wasn’t something most Albion fans were even entertaining as a possibility. In reality the season was over but the battle for pride to avoid finishing second bottom was still alive. Despite only seeing our play-off hopes dashed last weekend the Beanos could yet finish second from last in the SFL. One of the other teams battling to avoid a ninth placed finish were today’s opponents Annan Athletic. The Galabank outfit have won two in a row and the last time Stirling visited Annan we lost five goals and two players! Today’s Albion team showed five changes from the one which started against Peterhead last week. Jamie Bishop and David McClune were missing due to work commitments and suspension respectively.

Stirling have of course already had a couple of competitive outings but today was the one that really mattered as Annan visited Forthbank Stadium in our Division Three opener. Defeat at Falkirk in the Ramsdens was followed by Gayfield penalty kick misery in the League Cup. However, there were enough positive signs at Arbroath to suggest visitors Annan would be in for a tough match on their first trip North to Stirling. Team lines for the Beanos showed two changes from last weekend’s outing. Davie Crawford disappeared after helping out for one match while Kieran McAnespie missed out through suspension. Into the starting XI came Sam Filler and former youth team kid Ross McGeachie. This meant that the Albion had a back four of whom three are SAFC youth graduates. A proud day for all concerned with the youth programme. With summer making a late entrance the game begin in [… more]
