Stirling Albion boss Greig McDonald dedicated Saturday’s 3-1 win over Montrose to loyal fan Kevin Croall, who died at the end of January at the age of just 42.
Montrose took the lead through Stephen McNally but goals from top scorer Jordan White, Mark Ferry and Stephen Day earned the Binos a deserved victory in a match we dominated.
McDonald said: “We lost one of our own recently and Kevin was laid to rest this week. The players and myself want to dedicate this win to Kevin. His daughter Hailey helps out at the club as well and hopefully this was a fitting tribute.
“That’s probably the best performance we have had since I took over. Some of the moves we put together were fantastic – we scored three and we could have scored six or seven. Scott Davidson can’t believe he didn’t get a goal!
“We are under a bit of pressure being at the bottom of the league and the guys showed a lot of character to come back – I thought we dominated the second half.”
Montrose boss Stuart Garden said: “Our performance was poor and Stirling Albion deserved to win. We had a chance to go second in the table but we didn’t pass the ball well and their centre-halves handled Garry Wood well.”
