Bankies had a very unhappy end to the season at Kilbowie when they played host to Stenhousemuir , a team they should have beaten had they not succumbed to slack play, the undoing of many teams.
After leading by one goal to nil at the halfway stage Bankies went further ahead tow minutes after the re-start but when they relaxed the Warriors took full advantage of this and scored three goals in eight minutes to wrap up the points.
This was certainly not one of Bankies most outstanding games. They lacked the fighting spirit we have seen quite regularly this season against such teams as Morton, Motherwell, and Stirling Albion to name a few.
Perhaps it was the lack of supporters which put Bankies off for there were only 500 fans at the game.
The game started off quietly with neither team taking advantage of some good goal scoring opportunities. The play from both sides was ragged and uncertain and good moves trailed off into obscurity.
Bankies first goal came early when Frank Russell shot through a melee of players on the visitors goal line in 15 minutes.
This goal put new life into the homesters but try as they did they could not score any more goals before the interval.
A fine piece of interception by Tony Moy gave Bankies their second in the 47th minute. The inside left intercepted a pass back to right half Kinross then he went on to ram the ball past the oncoming keeper Samson.
What followed was disastrous. Bankies relaxed, or at least that's how it appeared. The Warriors saw this and made good use of the mistake.
Centre forward Elliot slammed home a rebound off keeper MacLachlan , who had a poor game, in the 57th minute to bring one back for the visitors.
Two goals in two minutes finished the Bankies. Left winger McAllister got the equaliser in the 63rd minute when he shot through Graham Small's legs, foxing keeper MacLachlan who could not do a thing about it.
Goal number three came two minutes later when inside left McGregor, who played a blinder in the second half, got just reward when he collected an Elliot pass on the six yard line and shot home.
From then on the Warriors strolled home with Bankies forced to look on.
