    Wasps make history 

    Tuesday, August 09, 2016 7:40:08 PM
    The Alloa Athletic players wrote themselves into the club's history this evening, as the first Alloa Athletic team to reach the Quarter-Finals of the League Cup since Season 1965-66. The closest they had come previously had been in Season 1972/73  when after winning their group section, they defeated First Division side Ayr United over two legs, 0-0 at Recreation Park, then winning 1-0 at somerset Park, Willie McCulloch scoring "The Wasps" winner, however it did take a penalty save from keeper Davie McWilliams, keeping out Eric Stevenson's late penalty. In the next round, the same stage as prior to this evenings victory over Inverness CT, "The Wasps" unfortunately went down 3-0 to St. Johnstone in aggregate.
    This evening Jack Ross masterminded a highland double, after defeating both Premier League sides Ross County and Inverness CT. The only down side for "The Wasps" this evening was Jamie Longworth falling awkwardly on his hand and breaking bones, and having to come off at half-time.
    The Wasps will now look forward to the draw for the next round of the tournament, which will take place at Parkhead, tomorrow evening after the Celtic v. Motherwell game.
