Livingston Secure Third Division Title

Livingston secured the IRN BRU Third Division Title at Almondvale Stadium this afternoon.

A 0-0 draw with Berwick Rangers was anough to ensure the title would be coming back to Almondvale.

Everyone at the club is delighted with the result and would like to congratulate the players and management teams. The club would also like to express its thanks to fans who have continued to follow the club throughout the past year.

The club would like to announce the launch of a new Club Membership scheme, giving supporters a variety of ticket options and benefits for next seasons matches in conjunction with a new payment scheme.

Full details can be found here.

As for the game itself, Livi stopper Roddy McKenzie proved to be the hero of the hour, saving a last minute penalty for a Watson hand ball which would surely have delayed the promotion party for yet another week.

Stuart Callaghan struck the spot kick well enough, but was denied by McKenzie's feet.

Prior to that it was shaping up to be yet another afternoon of near things, with Jason Talbot, Raffaele De Vita and Robbie Winters all coming close. But the final whistle brought the necessary point to ensure Livi could no longer be caught by Forfar Athletic in the race for the League crown.
