    Alloa Athletic continued their pre-season training with a friendly fixture against newly promoted Clyde now managed by Alloa ex manager Danny Lennon. tHe visitors were dealt a blow prior to kick off with Ally Love appearing to go over on his ankle and had to be replaced by Mark Lamont.

    Alloa Athletic - 1. Chris Henry 2. Trialist 3. Liam Dick 4. Scott Taggart 5. Andy Graham 6. Cameron O'Donnell 7. Kevin Cawley 8. Adam Brown 9. Liam Buchanan 10. Alan Trouten 11. Andy Stirling Subs - 12.14.15 & 21 all trialists.

    Clyde - 1. David Mitchell 2. Declan Fitzpatrick 3. Martin McNiff 4. Craig Howie 12. Mark Lamont 6. Raymond Grant 7. Kristoff Syvertsen 8. Chris McStay 9. Darren Smith 10. Chris Johnstone 11. Tony Wallace Subs 14. Ross Lyon 15. 16.17.18. all trialists 19. Barry Cuddidhy 21. Michael McGhee.

    However it was the visitors who took the lead in the 15th minute when Kristoff Syvertsen reacted quickest to a loose ball in the box to fire home, five minutes later "The Wasps" equalised when Liam Buchanan shot was charged down and Alan Trouten was on hand to score his first goal of the new season.

    Eight minutes into the second half "The Wasps" took the lead when the trialist No. 2 broke down the right hand side of pitch and sent over an inch perfect cross for Liam Buchanan to dispatch in bottom corner of the net.
    Goal - Liam Buchanan 2-1
    In fairness to Danny Lennon's side they never gave up and scored an excellent equaliser through Chris Johnstone to draw level. Alloa then suffered a blow when Andy Stirling had to leave the field with an injury and was replaced by ex Wasp Ahmed Aloulou who is training with "The Wasps". Indeed it was Ahmed who was to come on and score the winning goal firing high into the top corner of the net for a 3-2 victory.
