Available players can be found here.
GLASGOW PERTHSHIRE 2 FORTH WANDERERS 2
The Wanderers drew 2-2 with Glasgow Perthshire at Keppoch Park this afternoon in their opening league match of the season. New signing Craig Gupwell opened the scoring and, after Perthshire had equalised, Willie McClaren made it 2-1 at the interval. And so it stayed until 15 minutes from time, when the referee was seemingly the only one in attendance to see Lachlan Tait’s challenge as a penalty, from which the hosts duly equalised. Forth also hit the woodwork twice and can feel hard done by after a decent performance, although Perthshire could also claim with some justification to be the victims of a couple of contentious offside decisions.
FORTH WANDERERS 3 LESMAHAGOW 8
A bad day at the office for the Wanderers on Saturday as they were convincingly beaten 8-3 by a rampant Lesmahagow. The Wanderers goals came from Martin Hannaway and a Willie McClaren double. To make matters worse, keeper Paul McKane was taken to hospital during the first half and was kept in overnight. Everyone at the club wishes Paul a speedy recovery.
LANARK UNITED 3 FORTH WANDERERS 1
A disappointing performance saw the Wanderers lose 3-1 to Lanark United at Moor Park tonight. Two down at the interval, Forth improved in the second half but only had an 82nd minute consolation from Willie McClaren to show for their efforts.
FORTH WANDERERS 3 ROYAL ALBERT 2
The Wanderers defeated Royal Albert 3-2 at Kingshill Park yesterday, the Forth goals coming from Martin Hannaway,Alan Christie and Willie McClaren.
LARKHALL THISTLE 7 FORTH WANDERERS 2
The Wanderers lost 7-2 to Larkhall Thistle at Gasworks Park this evening, the goals coming from an Alan Christie penalty and a screamer from Willie McClaren. Things looked decidedly different at the interval however, with Forth deservedly one up through a penalty on the stroke of half time after a half in which Willie McClaren also struck the bar with a free kick.
It was a different story after the break when the sky fell in on Forth, Larkhall notching three quick goals in the ten minutes after the break. McClaren pulled one back with the goal of the game but time and time again Thistle breached the Wanderers rearguard, leaving goalkeeper Paul McKane exposed and the hosts added another four to record an emphatic victory.
