East Stirling v Stirling

Post by Auntie Merge » Sun Nov 10, 2013 7:46 pm

I don't know if anyone else was giggling through this fixture yesterday? East Stirling v Stirling.

I was wondering how on earth you would commentate on such a game? "Stirling have the ball, no they have lost it and it's gone to Stirling" .

Then it appeared that one of the players may have got confused which Stirling was which, because by half time he had scored three goals... one in the wrong end and two in the right one.

I'm always a fan of when East Fife play Forfar - especially if the score is 5-4... :-)

I wonder if this score has ever occurred in a game between the 2 teams?
Ironically East Stirling don't play in ES I think they still groundshare with Falkirk!

There has been an instance of Forfar 5 - 4 East Fife.

As an East Stirling fan I can confirm that we did move out of Firs Park a few years ago and now groundshare with Stenhousmuir - our rivals!

It was 5-4 in that game 2 or 3 years ago. Great Soccer Saturday moment.
