The Club were saddened to learn today of the death of former player John Philliben senior, who passed away on Friday after a long illness.
John joined Stirling Albion in January 1955 from Gowanhill United and made his league debut in a 0-0 draw at Ibrox in August 1955. He played 31 games and scored six goals before moving to Highland League Rothes in summer 1957.
His son, also John, played four seasons with Stirling Albion before moving to Doncaster Rovers in 1984. He returned as manager for 1998/99 and 1999/00.
Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
