C:WindowsTempphp15E7.tmpRossvale have lifted the Championship and League One Cup after a close-fought final in Alloa against Dundee side Dryburgh Athletic.

Dryburgh’s resolute defence managed to keep Rossvale’s well-known attacking threats quiet for 104 minutes before defender Jane O’Toole nodded the ball into net in extra time to claim SWF’s most senior cup for the Glasgow side.

Next Sunday they head to Inverness Caledonian Thistle with a fantastic chance to claim the double, as nearest rivals Ayr United need to score well into double figures to catch them.

Speaking after the game, manager Julie McSherry urged her side not to assume the title is won yet and get it done. McSherry said: “We’ll be taking nothing for granted.”

McDermid had been awarded a free kick on the edge of the box to give them a last-minute opportunity to take the tie to extra time, but Strollers held on for a 2-1 win in front of around 400 spectators.
