    Wasps v. Airdrieonians 

    Tuesday, July 09, 2013 6:06:29 PM

    Manager Paul Hartley was pleased after "The Wasps" defeated Airdrieonians 3-2 in their 2nd pre season friendly. Airdrieonians manager, ex Wasp, Jimmy Boyle inluded two ex Alloa players in his line up - goalkeeper Colin Stewart and striker Jim Lister, while another ex Alloa player, who recently had agreed terms with Airdrie, Lewis Coult was sitting watching from the stand. Manager Paul Hartley again gave starts to "trialists" Craig McLeish & Mark Lamont, while young 18 year old Graham Forsyth started the game. Jamie Bain opening the scoring after 19 mins, then The Wasps hit back with two goals in three minutes, Andy Kirk scoring from inside the six yard box, before Graham Forsyth volled home sweetly to put Alloa 2-1 ahead. Airdrie again hit back through Liam Watt five minutes from the end of the 1st half. Both sides made numerous changes of personnel in the 2nd half, before Graham Forsyth scored the winning goal 19 minutes from full time.
