    Stirlingshire Cup Draw 

    Tuesday, May 29, 2012 6:10:40 PM

    Alloa Athletic have been drawn against Stirling Albion in next season's Stirlingshire Cup. The teams were drawn together in the the First Round draw with the winners to face recently promoted Dumbarton in the semi-final stages. The Wasps recent form in the competition has been poor, having to go back to Season 2007/08 when we last won a game in the competition defeating East Stirlingshire 2-0 before losing to Falkirk. This has been mainly due to the Alloa Athletic management putting out young under 19/17 players. The last time we played Stirling Albion in the tournament was back on 20th September, 2005, losing 2-1 at Recreation Park, in front of only 269 fans. However at the start of Season 2001/02 the Alloa Athletic fans were treated to a "Classic Local Derby" in which "The Wasps" won 5-2, Gareth Hutchison scoring a hat-trick, helped also by goals from Willie Irvine, against one of his old clubs and Harry Curran, a repeat of this type of performance would certainly be mouthwatering. No date has been agreed for this seasons first round tie which is due to be played before 31st August, 2012.
