    Alloa win against Brechin 

    Saturday, May 09, 2009 5:44:57 PM

    Victory today against Brechin City ended the season on a high note, the club eventually finishing 8th in the league, Arbroath’s shut out against Raith Rovers at Stark’s Park enough to keep John McGlashan’s side ahead of the Wasps on goal difference. A Greig Spence double before half time had people asking when an Alloa Athletic player had last scored a hat-trick at Recreation Park – 28th Nov, 2005, Ian Nicolson in Scottish Cup victory over Selkirk 9-0 or 31st January, 2004 when a Ross Hamilton hat-trick helped “The Wasps” defeat Forfar Athletic 4-0 in the league. The home side played well and at 2-0 ahead they might have increased their lead with efforts from John Grant and Andy Scott going very close. However Brechin City scored a good goal from the dangerous Stephen Ettien and then equalised when a long Ian Nimmo ball into the box was turned into his own net by keeper Raymond Jellema. However Alloa showed great character and substitute Hugh Kerr put over a great cross which top scorer Andy Scott headed past Craig Nelson to give the home side a deserved 3-2 victory.
