Match Report

Chris Hamilton hit a hat-trick as Stirling thrashed Stranraer 8-2.

Amazingly, the sides went in at 1-1 at the interval after Stranraer's Michael Mullen's 40th-minute angled drive in off the post cancelled out Hamilton's sixth-minute strike from close range.

But nine minutes into the second half James McKinstry lashed Martin Grehan's cross into his own net to put Stirling ahead - and Stranraer promptly crumbled.

Hamilton scored with an 18-yard drive a minute later and after 67 minutes completed his hat-trick when Grehan's header came off the bar.

Grehan got his name on the scoresheet in the 70th minute with a tap-in and David McKenna's header made it six.

Stephen McConalogue pulled one back but John O'Neil hit number seven and Grehan capped a memorable day with his second two minutes from time.
