Point gives Fifers crown

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

Clyde.................. 0 East Fife............. 0 East Fife were crowned League Two cham­pi­ons at Broad­wood fol­low­ing their goal­less draw with Clyde.

A draw was enough for Gary Nay­smith’s side to kill off Clyde’s lin­ger­ing ti­tle hopes and with ri­vals An­nan and Queen’s Park also drop­ping points, the Fifers were pro­moted.

Barry Fer­gu­son was forced into a late change to his line-up, as Scott Durie suf­fered an in­jury in the warm-up. Jamie Wat­son was pro­moted from the bench.

The match turned out to be a cagey af­fair. Steven Camp­bell saw an early ef­fort saved for the vis­i­tors be­fore Scott McLaugh­lin went close for Clyde

Shortly be­fore half-time, the Bully Wee sur­vived a scare when a long ball into the box caused a prob­lem but Scott McMann cleared off the line.

Early in the sec­ond half, Jor­dan Kirk­patrick went close from the edge of the box.

Sean Hig­gins did well to ac­ro­bat­i­cally hook a loose ball back to­wards goal, but it was cleared by the East Fife de­fence be­fore a fin­ish­ing touch could be ap­plied.

Fifers sub­sti­tute Jamie In­sall had the last clear-cut chance of the match but his shot drifted wide of the far post. Clyde FC lottery draw April, 13 num­bers were 5, 8, 13, 22.

There was no jack­pot win­ner but 13 share the £250 sec­ond prize.

The jack­pot is now up to £19,750.
