30th April 2016 – Forth 2 East Kilbride 1
The Wanderers are promoted !
An injury time winner from Jason Corbett saw the Wanderers make it 10 wins from 11 and seal promotion to the Central 1st Division. Forth led at half time through a clever Wullie McLaren goal but the visitors pegged them back and it looked to be heading for a draw until that late, late winner. One win from our remaining two games against Lanark and Royal Albert will see the Wanderers promoted as Champions.
27th April 2016 – Newmains 1 Forth 2
A game of two halves and a game of two penalties as Forth overcame Newmains by 2 goals to 1 at Victoria Park this evening. One up at half time through a fine Willie McLaren strike, the Wanderers had also hit the woodwork three times in a half which they dominated. However, a rejuvenated Newmains were far stronger in the second period, Wanderers keeper David Cherrie saving an early penalty before they deservedly equalised through Colin Boylan. However, Forth are nothing if not resilient and a Kristopher Dick penalty with 6 minutes to go made it an impressive 9 victories out of 10 and means 3 points are required from the final 3 games for promotion and 6 for the title.

23rd April 2016 – Forth 5 Benburb 2
The Wanderers sit proudly atop the Central 2nd Division tonight after a 5-2 victory over promotion rivals Benburb at Kingshill this afternoon. A Kristopher Dick hat-trick and further goals from Willie McLaren and Barry McGeechan saw Forth see off a dangerous Bens side, who had Scott Jarvie sent off at 1-1 for a deliberate handball in the box. Up until then it had been a fairly even contest, with David Cherrie in the Forth goal having to make a couple of important early saves, but the Wanderers took full advantage of the extra man and ran out worthy winners.
16th April 2016 – Forth 3 Glasgow Perthshire 0
The Wanderers won 3-0 against Glasgow Perthshire at Kingshill this afternoon in a game which was a lot tighter than the scoreline might suggest. Two first half goals from Kristopher Dick and an own goal in second half stoppage time, saw Forth move up to second in the table.
6th April 2016 – John Rennie Extends Contract
Silky midfielder John Rennie has become the latest player to pledge his future to the Wanderers signing on until June 2017 – more great news for everyone connected with Forth.
2nd April 2016 – Forth 2 Cambuslang 0
Forth moved to within a point of league leaders Port Glasgow and Cambuslang with a 2-0 victory over the Lang at Kingshill this afternoon. An excellent first half performance saw the Wanderers surprisingly only a goal to the good through Barry McGeechan, but a second half penalty from Kristopher Dick sealed another vital 3 points.
