The Blue Toon made history today as they claimed the Scottish League Two title with a 2-0 victory over Clyde.

The trophy - which will be officially presented at the club’s final home game - is Peterhead’s first senior honour.

After the final whistle Peterhead FC chairman Rodger Morrison told the Buchanie the victory was the biggest moment in the club’s 123-year history.

A boisterous travelling contingent accompanied Jim McInally and his squad to Broadwood, knowing that should they beat Clyde and Annan fail to pick up all three points against East Stirling they could seal the title.

Though the performance was less than glamorous for long periods, goals from Andy Rodgers and Rory McAllister - and a last-minute penalty save from Graeme Smith - helped the champions elect fufill their side of the bargain.

And when an almighty cheer went up from the visiting support in the 90th minute, McInally and his charges knewtheir title rivals Annan had capitulated at Ochiview.
