SFL Division One Review 30th April 2011


So it’s Dunfermline who get to party and go to the promised land of SPL Heaven. Following their 2-0 victory against Morton, Jim McIntyre can get the champagne off the ice and down the gullet.

Elsewhere there was last-minute drama as Cowdenbeath won 1-0 in the 79th minute thanks to a Steven Crawford goal against Stirling Albion and looked as though they were going to make their great escape only for Ross County to get one in injury time thanks to Jonathon Flynn to beat Falkirk 1-0, which means that Cowdenbeath will need a win with 11 clear goals to stay in the First Division without the play offs.

Dundee’s fairy tale season ended with a five goal thriller in their last home game of the season against Partick Thistle, winning 3-2. Their was a huge crowd at Dens Park as they slashed their entrance prices and have perhaps shown us the future in the SFL. Queen of the South stopped the rot with an away win 1-0 at Kirkcaldy which halted their losing streak and ended Raith’s chances at the same time.

And the biggest story of intrigue can finally be laid to rest as Falkirk confirmed Steven Pressley as the manager for next season. Whatever the reason Ian McCall left Thistle, but it wasn’t for the Falkirk hot seat. It will hardly knock Wills and Kate off the society pages but one of the most successful managers in the SFL is sitting in the house. I wonder how long before his phone rings.
