Around the grounds

ANOTHER weekend has gone by and with it another title has been won (writes Sarah McLean).

Congratulations must go to Cowdenbeath who took the Second Division title on Saturday afternoon. Good luck to them in the First Division.

Unfortunately for local club Forfar Athletic, Cowdenbeath’s win was at their cost, and they lost out 2-0. It is now looking increasingly likely that the Loons will be in the play offs come the end of the season with a chance of going back down to the Third Division. Escaping the dreaded play-off spot is very much in their own hands now as they face Albion Rovers this weekend. Should the Loons win they will stay above the Cliftonhill side setting them in good stead for an away trip to Stenhousemuir on the final day of the season.

However, should they go into the play-offs a midweek trip to Elgin could be on the cards.

Brechin also did not fare so well as they lost out 2-1 during their away day to Stenhousemuir. The Glebe Park club are also not immune from going down to the Third Division and they could also find themselves in the play offs.

Meanwhile, Arbroath could only take eighth place Albion Rovers to a 1-1 draw at Cliftonhill.

It was good news for one Angus club, however, as Montrose got their first back to back win of the season when they defeated East Stirlingshire 3-1 at Links Park.

The club, who have had a difficult season to put it mildly, have received a further boost with the news that Paul Lunan and Jamie Winter have signed up for at least another season.

There is still plenty time to get your Irn Bru cans in to get a share of £70,000 for your club. At the moment, Forfar Athletic, Brechin City and Arbroath all have pending results. However, Montrose are doing well in third place with 5, 462.

With most clubs having just two games this season left to go, and at least one home game, make sure you go out to support your team!
