A one-minute silence will be held before East Stirlingshire’s home match against Peterhead on Saturday to commemorate Darren Wilcox, who died last week from leukaemia.

The 21-year-old from Perth had two spells at the Ochilview-based club, turning out for the under-19s team as a left-back during the 2009-10 season.

Derek McKenzie, East Stirlingshire head coach, said: “The youth department at the club are devastated to hear this sad news.

“Darren was an excellent footballer as well as being a great person to have around the footnall club.”
