Match report
This was a comprehensive victory and the score did not reflect the home sides dominance of the game.

Alan Hercher put them ahead in the 35th minute after sustained pressure on the East Stirling goal - he took a headed pass from Brian Thomson and sent a looping header past the despairing Wilson.

Marco De Barros replaced Daisy Ross in the second half and he tormented the visitors defence on many occasions. He was only on the field for 2 minutes when he sent a well-judged cross to the back post and Mike Noble rifled it home.

Despite a number of chances that was the end of the scoring but the home side will take great heart from the performance.
