Saturday afternoon witnessed an intense showdown at the bottom of the Scottish League Two as Stranraer FC hosted Clyde at Stair Park.

Stranraer secured a comfortable 2-0 victory, with goals from Kyle Fleming and a 70-yard stunner from Finn Ecrepont.

The 21-year-old saw the keeper off his line and aimed a shot from his own half straight into the back of the net.


The match also saw Clyde’s Ross Lyon being shown a red card around the 85th minute, but that wasn’t the worst part.

After the game, the situation turned ugly when a brawl erupted between supporters of both clubs.

According to The Scottish Sun, flares and pyrotechnics were thrown onto the pitch during the fan trouble. Additionally, it has been reported that local fans attacked away supporters with golf clubs after the final whistle.

Police swiftly arrived at the scene with two vans and a car spotted outside Stair Park.

After the incident, two arrests were made on the scene, with charges subsequently filed, as confirmed by a spokesperson from Police Scotland. He stated:

“Around 5pm on Saturday, 10 February 2024, police received a report of a disturbance in the London Road area of Stranraer.

“Two men aged 48 and 23 were arrested and charged in connection with the incident.

“A report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.”

Following the victory, Stranraer now enjoys an 11-point lead over the relegation zone with 26 points, while Clyde’s struggles persist as they remain at the bottom with just 15 points.
