    Wasps Clinch Play Off Spot 

    Sunday, April 14, 2013 5:20:22 PM

    "The Wasps" made absolutely sure of a place in this season's Scottish League Division One Play off's after a home victory over fellow play off candidates, Forfar Athletic. Alloa Athletic striker Kevin Cawley scoring the all important goal in a 1-0 victory, his eleventh goal of the season so far. This will be "The Wasps" third time in the Scottish League Division One play off's since they started in Season 2005/06. This time the club will look to go one better after being defeated in the Semi Final stages on both previous occassions. In Season 2007/08 after defeating Clyde 2-1 in the first leg at Recreation Park, they were cruelly defeated 5-3 after extra time in the second leg at Broadwood having had victory in sight. The most recent occassion was in Season 2009/10 after being pipped on goal difference for the Championship by local rivals Stirling Albion, "The Wasps" faced Cowdenbeath in the Semi finals, the 1st leg at Central Park was drawn 1-1 but in the 2nd leg at Recreation Park Cowdenbeath won 2-0. This is a great achievement this season for manager Paul Hartley and the players who will look to keeping winning and see where it takes them.
