Berwick Rangers stretched their unbeaten run to three matches and ended Stirling Albion’s own sequence of seven matches without defeat with a hard earned 1-0 victory at Shielfield last night ( March 5th ).
The official attendance was 402. The win was clinched through a trademark Lee Currie free kick, three minutes from time. Currie saw his first half penalty saved by keeper Sam Filler after Scott Dalziel was fouled as he threatened inside the box. Minutes before Currie’s eventual winner, home fans were already celebrating as a Fraser McLaren strike appeared certain to enter the net when he pounced on a sloppy back pass. Unfortunately, the ball hit the post.
Fans are reminded that this Saturday, March 9th, the home game against Montrose kicks off at 2:00 p.m. to accommodate a major speedway event later in the day. At this game, the Trust plans to celebrate its 10th anniversary by presenting a cheque to boost football club funds.
*Meanwhile, Berwick Rangers Reserves face a test of their promotion credentials on the same day when they visit Edinburgh side Leith Athletic who are three points behind them in the East of Scotland First Division table but have three games in hand. The sides have yet to meet this season.
