Match Report

The new season began in fine style and by half time we had already surpassed our best result of the whole of the previous season! By then we had established a 3-0 lead and effectively killed the tie against an Alloa side newly demoted to Division Two. Our first goal of the new season came after only seven minutes and what a fine effort it was. Billy McKinlay hoisted a high ball out to Darren Jackson on the right and he cut in before unleashing a shot into the top left-hand corner of the net.

In the 32nd minute it was 16 year old Christian Dailly who made it a scoring debut. Billy McKinlay shrugged off a challenge before laying the ball into Christian Dailly's path and the youngster showed great maturity as he ran fully 30 yards before slotting the ball low past Lowrie. Two minutes from half-time an Allan Preston cross was headed home strongly by Brian Welsh via the underside of the bar. Although we did have a scare early in the second half, when Smith headed over, this was Alloa's only chance in the game. We, therefore, ran out comfortable winners, though we did take our foot off the accelerator during that second half.
