Kelty Hearts League 2

Kelty Hearts were crowned the Scottish League 2 Champions after they grabbed a late win over Stenhousemuir. Ukrainian midfielder Max Kucheriavyi scored the only goal of the game in the 84th minute. They have been confirmed as champions after their closest rival Annan Athletic lost to Albion Rovers. Annan Athletic needed to match Hearts’ result. Kelty Hearts are 18 points clear at the top of the table with five games to go.

“It’s a wonderful day for the club and the town. It’s been a long time coming. You can hear it in my voice and that’s not just from today, that’s from the last eight or nine months trying to drive the standards of the group and make sure we’re fully focused week-in, week-out,” Kelty Hearts boss Kevin Thomson said after being crowned the League 2 Champions. “It was not easy, these boys have jobs through the day, so massive plaudits to all the players, all the committee, and all the staff throughout the season. Everybody has worked tirelessly from the day we took the job. The players will enjoy it and I’ll have a wee glass of wine tonight and we’ll look forward to next season.”

“Everyone at the SPFL would like to congratulate the players, management team, and directors at Kelty Hearts on winning cinch League 2,” SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said. “The team has shown incredible consistency throughout the season and this is a much-deserved title. The achievement is made all the more impressive by the fact this is the club’s first season in cinch League 2. There is still much to play for in the division, with final play-off positions still to be determined and I wish all clubs involved the very best of luck for the rest of the season.”
