Edinburgh City 2 - 2 Alloa Athletic (Edinburgh win 4-3 on pens)

Edinburgh City’s remarkable season continues to notch up records and break new ground. Currently leading the way in League 2 just 12 months on from looking like they might be headed back to the Lowland League, they advanced to the semi-finals of a national cup competition for the first time in their history following a gutsy comeback and penalty shoot-out win over an Alloa Athletic side sitting two divisions above them.

Capital choice gets reward

James McDonagh has been to Scottish Cup finals as a coach and he has helped nurture some of the best young players in Scotland, but when he turned up at his grandfather’s house recently with the League Two Manager of the Month award, he finally realised that his decision to step out of the shadows and take charge of Edinburgh City had been the right one.
