Stirling University will finish second in the inaugural Lowland League – earning entry into the Scottish Cup – following their victory over Vale on Saturday.

First-half goals from Paul Sludden, Chris Geddes and a late winner from Jack Sutherland was enough to secure the crucial spot with one match remaining.

Vale goalkeeper Kieran Beveridge put on a solid display, while Vale displayed increasing intensity in the second half with John Ferguson and Keith Lough netting a goal apiece.
