Here at Spectrum Service Solutions we are used to bringing you details about the events at which we work; indeed, we’ve been involved in some of the biggest sporting events hosted in Scotland over the past few years. However, this time we’re delighted to bring you news of one of the biggest sporting events that one of our staff has ever been involved in – The Scottish Championship play-off final.
Spectrum Site Facilities Manager, Ally Love, played an important role for Brechin City in the final which was played over two legs last week. Having beaten Alloa Athletic 1-0 in first leg at Glebe Park, it was always going to be an exciting game for the return match at The Indodrill Stadium and it certainly didn’t disappoint – Alloa Athletic eventually ran out 4-3 winners to take the game to extra time and then to penalties.
It was the second time in little over a week that Ally and his teammates faced a very tense penalty shoot-out; Raith Rovers witnessed Ally’s cool head in the semi-final shoot-out as he slotted away one of Brechin’s penalties, and Alloa Athletic suffered a similar experience as his nerve held once more to score from the penalty spot on Saturday.
Brechin City won 5-4 on penalties and will now play in the 2nd tier of Scottish football next season. Congratulations go to Ally and his teammates as they enjoy a well deserved break before the start of a new challenge next season.
For Spectrum, the football season is not quite finished yet, we have the Scottish Cup Final this today at Hampden Park, and then we have the small matter of Scotland v England on the 10th June for what is sure to be an exciting World Cup Qualifier.
