Queens ended what has been a memorable, and historic season with league win number 29 after leading scorer Nicky Clark, netted the only goal of a very one-sided contest at Cliftonhill against already relegated Albion Rovers. Despite scoring just once, Queens dominated the game, and only a fine performance from Albion ‘keeper Graeme Shepherd prevented Queens from recording a greater margin of victory.

As it was, once again it was the Country’s leading scorer Nicky Clark who settled the issue when he was on the end of a Ryan McGuffie pass to slot home a record equalling 41st goal of the season, yet try as he might, he was unable to find the goal that would have broken Jimmy Rutherford’s record set back in the 1931/32 season. The main reason for Clark not being able to break the record was Albion ‘keeper Shepherd who performed heroics in keeping the score down to just one goal.

Ryan McGuffie, who set up the winning goal, joined a ‘special’ Queens club on Saturday when he made his 100th start for his home town team, and in recognition, he captained the team for the day. So the season ended as it had started, with Nicky Clark scoring the winner in a one-nil away win. There was so much to admire and appreciate in between those two goals, as Queens fans from all over the globe witnessed what has been undoubtedly the greatest season ever in the history of Queen of the South……Already looking forward to next season!!!!
