Livingston 1 - 0 East Stirlingshire

Livingston completed their Division Three championship-winning season with a narrow win at home to East Stirling.

The only goal came a minute before half-time through Keaghan Jacobs, who found space in the penalty area and lobbed goalkeeper Gavin Sorley.

East Stirlingshire, who finished in the play-off places, barely threatened the home goalkeeper.

The visitors' best effort came from Dean Richardson whose spectacular 30-yard effort flew just over the bar.

The final whistle heralded the start of a party which went on into the small hours as club captain Liam Fox collected the trophy in front of the jubilant crowd.
