Josh Todd scored the opening goal of the game in the 38th minute in a game where East Fife dominated possession but struggled to convert their chances. Rabin Omar doubled the lead in the 88th minute as Annan claimed a 2-0 victory.

Stirling Albion kick started their season with a 3-2 victory against local rivals East Stirlingshire. They raced into the lead thanks to goals from Sandy Cunningham and Steven Doris in the opening seven minutes before Nathan Shepherd pulled one back in the 13th minute. Ross McMillan doubled Stirling's lead when he netted with 14 minutes remaining. Ally Roy scored in the 88th minute for East Stirlingshire but Stirling held on to claim the victory.
