Stirling Albion F.C. is known to its fans as 'The Binos', or sometimes 'The Yo-Yos' owing to the teams habit of achieving successive promotion and relegation! Stirling Albion plays at Forthbank Stadium in Stirling, near the River Forth. The club's badge features the Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills, a range of hills to the north of the Forth Valley. Stirling Albion was formed in 1945 to replace King's Park F.C., who had been unable to reform after the end of World War II. The old team's stadium had been damaged by the only bomb to have landed on the town during the entire war, so the new team would need a new stadium. Local coal magnate Thomas Fergusson, the brains behind the new club, purchased the lease on the Annfield Estate to build the stadium that would be the club's home until 1992. The team now plays at Forthbank Stadium in Stirling with a capacity of 3,808. The team has had a roller-coaster ride in the league and has yet to win a major title. In 1984 the team set a new record for its highest ever victory, a massive 20-0 thrashing of Selkirk in the Scottish Cup.
