Stirling Albion 9 East Stirlingshire 1

A late goal at Berwick on Tuesday night brought to an end the Beanos excellent seven game unbeaten run. Not to worry. This afternoon gave Greig McDonald’s men the chance to start another one as near neighbours East Stirlingshire visited Forthbank. This match signalled the start of the season’s final quarter and would therefore be our fourth and last meeting of the campaign with the Shire. The other three have seen one win for John Coughlin’s team with the remaining two ending in 1-1 draws. The Shire have actually been on a decent run of form themselves and even led 1-0 at Ibrox last weekend until shipping three goals in the second period. Team lines for today saw the same eleven on duty who started against Berwick at Shielfield. On a bitterly cold and windy afternoon at Forthbank the game began with the Beanos shooting towards the Springkerse end of [… more]

Stirling Albion 1 Queen's Park 2

Back to back “reality checks” according to the manager after Stirling defeats to Elgin and Clyde. “Absolute dross” is what most in attendance, particularly against the Bully Wee, would label it. Any hopes that a drop in division would lead to a dramatic up turn in our fortunes are currently proving sadly misplaced. However, another week and another chance to get our season back on track. Today’s visitors Queen’s Park recorded an outstanding win over SPL Dundee in midweek League Cup action and would have headed to Forthbank in confident mood. With this being the Beanos last home game for five weeks the Stirling faithful would have been extra keen for their favourites to put on some sort of show. Team lines for the Albion saw four changes from the Clyde defeat. Danny Ashe, Scott Davidson and Steven Weir all dropped to the bench while Jamie McCunnie was not involved [… more]

Cowdenbeath 4 Stirling Albion 1

Today Stirling faced the daunting prospect of a trip to table topping Cowdenbeath. The Central Park outfit started the day a mere 22 points and nine places ahead of Greig McDonald’s Albion side. Add into the mix the Beanos recent dreadful record against the Blue Brazil and to many people this would have been the home banker of the day. However, the Stirling manager was in confident mood pre-match and despite the two goal loss at Gayfield the word was that the Albion did play well for long spells. With Scotland having missed out on the big freeze which has enveloped much of the rest of Europe it was definitely “game on” as the travelling faithful headed to darkest Fife. Team lines for the match showed just the one change from the defeat against Arbroath as skipper Brian Allison replaced Shaun Fagan. With Central Park looking even more of a [… more]
