THOMAS Reilly was happy with his wonder strike which earned Elgin City a league win over Stenhousemuir.
The former St Mirren midfielder wrapped up City’s 2-0 success with a thunderbolt in off the underside of the bar, after Brian Cameron’s penalty opened the scoring.
It gave new boss Gavin Price a victory in his first league game in charge.
Cameron, who missed a penalty in the 3-1 Scottish Cup win over Edusport a week earlier, scored from the spot on 56 minutes after Lewis Strapp was fouled.
Twenty minutes later Reilly wrapped up the points from 25 yards.
“There’s no better feeling than scoring no matter what kind of goal, but this one was even sweeter in that it was a good strike,” said Reilly.
Elgin moved to within a point of Stenny in fourth spot with te win and boss Price said: “I was really pleased, more so with the clean sheet and the way we closed the game out.”
