Stenhousemuir had the chance to make the play-offs, and Tam Scobbie marked his final game as a Bairn, here’s how the day unfolded with The Falkirk Herald.

The Falkirk Herald was at Ochilview and The Falkirk Stadium to keep you up to date with the action from both games.

But it ended in tears for the Warriors as they blew a chance to make the promotion play-offs, wuhile there werre tears of a different kind for Tam Scobbie.
