Glimpses of StranraerGlimpses of Stranraer F.C. (Dumfries & Galloway Through the Lens S.) Away back in the 1860's the "Free Press" noted the activities of local football teams which engaged with others in "challenge matches". In 1865 we find a group calling themselves Stranraer but it was not until 1870 that formal moves were made which led to all the town clubs agreeing to form a Stranraer Football Club which would run senior and junior sides. Between the two wars there were three notable events in the club's history. First was Season 1927-28 when Stranraer won no less than seven trophies. Ten years later came the winning of the Qualifying Cup when Bo'ness were beaten 5-3 at Somerset Park and Stranraer keeper Andy Loudon marked the final by saving three penalties. But the most historic was the admission of Stranraer, after years of refusal, as members of the Scottish Alliance in 1939.
