Three first half goals were enough to put Stirling Albion on track for victory in the FVFDA League Cup final at the Falkirk Stadium.
The opening goal came on 7 minutes when Alexander Davidson raced clear. The forward was tackled but Thomas Sessford was on hand to thrash the ball home from just outside the penalty area.
At that point the game became quite scrappy with countless loose passes, until the 21st minute when Stirling Albion’s Lewis McFarlane came close with a lob.
The Binos had a second on 23 minutes and it was Sessford again. This time, the forward had spectators applauding with a lovely Dennis Bergkamp-esque turn before rolling the ball into the bottom left corner.
On 31 minutes, Albion had a third and it was game, set and match. A short corner fed the ball to Arran Ward on the edge of the area and his driven effort couldn’t be held by the goalkeeper, allowing Callum Tough to head home.
They nearly had a fourth minutes before the half when Jake MacGowan cut in from the right, only to see his curling effort palmed away. McFarlane looked set to put away the rebound but the goalkeeper saved again.
