    Wasps grab draw 

    Sunday, May 06, 2012 2:31:27 PM

    Alloa Athletic ended a fantastic season with a hard fought draw against Annan Athletic, who threatened to spoil the party ocassion. A crowd of 2,551 fans were inside Recreation Park to witness "The Wasps" collect the Third Division Championship trophy for only the second time in their history. Annan Athletic afforded Paul Hartley's team a guard of honour at the start of the match, but their goodwill ended there, as often happens on these ocassions it was not the champions who looked at their best and Graeme Bell, deservedly put the visitors ahead just aftet the half hour. The Alloa Athletic players have done brilliantly all season but in the first half they didn't play well and had Scott Bain to thank for keeping them in the match. In the second half Alloa dominated possesion but it didn't look as though it was going to be Alloa's day, until three minutes from the end Stevie Masterton struck the post with a vicious free kick and Steve May was on hand to score his 19th goal of the season to cheer up the large home support. Indeed two minutes later Stevie Masterton nearly found a winner but his free kick on this occasion just flew inches over the bar.
