Stuart McKechnie scored the only goal with the last kick of the game on Saturday as Rothesay Brandane made it four league wins from four with a 1-0 victory away to Bearsden, writes Nino Robertson.

In a game of few clear-cut chances, Neil Whitelaw and Sean Lawrence had the best opportunities in the first half for the Danes, while keeper William Lawrence tipped a Bearsden free kick on to the crossbar to keep the game goalless at the break, but the Danes lived dangerously early in the second half, with only a Dane Williamson clearance preventing Bearsden taking the lead.

Bearsden started the second half more strongly, but the Rothesay men held the upper hand towards the end - but even so, the game was heading for a goalless draw until McKechnie’s low free kick in the 93rd minute squirmed past the Bearsden keeper into the net - sparking jubilant scenes as the whole team rushed to congratulate the scorer.
