A powerful second half display, ensured Doune completed their league programme with a deserved win.

The Castle were sluggish in the first half and found themselves 3-1 down at halftime. An Alan Inglis goal was all Doune could offer in that first period as they played second fiddle to a hungrier and more fluent home side.

In the second half, Doune recaptured the brand of crisp attacking play that has characterised much of their season. Strong in central midfield, and with Jonny Burns and Dylan McGowan raiding effectively down either flank, they completely dominated.

Alan Inglis demonstrated just why he has gained international recognition this season by completing his hat trick. His second goal was the best of the evening, with Inglis shrugging aside the challenges of several defenders before turning and powerfully dispatching a clean strike into the net.

Steven Lauder capped a fine debut for the Caledonian side with two opportunist goals to seal a comfortable victory for the visitors. Lauder and Murray Docherty appeared as second half substitutes and fitted in well into a Castle side that finished the league campaign with their highest ever points tally in the Caledonian Premier Division.

Doune Castle: Campbell, Foster, More, Smith, Duncanson, McClymont, Hurst, Burke, McGowan, Inglis, Burns. Subs: Docherty, Lauder, Gallagher.
