ALLOA RFC cruised their way past Aberfeldy, beating the visitors 52-10 and by eight tries to two.

The squad lined up with almost the same pack as the previous week, with the exception of James Shaw coming in for Stuart Milligan.

Mitchell Guild provided the half back partnership with the returning Kris Aitken, and Martin McKenzie switched to full back.

Gary Taylor opened the scoring quickly following a strong Alloa scrum, with Aberdeldy showing clear signs of struggling early in.

Liam Ferguson dotted down in the left corner to add a second. Alloa looked in control despite Aberfeldy clawing back a try.

Alloa stretched their lead further as Blaine Gilchrist forced his way over the line, Kris Aitken registering the fourth try of the half for the hosts.

Aitken crossed the line again to give Alloa a 33-10 lead at the break. Alloa came out the interval with a fantastic team try finished off by Daniel Murrell.

Aberfeldy suffered an injury to their prop forward, with a heavily depleted squad struggling to lay a finger on the match.

Aitken completed his try hat trick and Gary Taylor crossed over for a second touchdown. This was a solid performance from Alloa, with tries coming from a number of different players.

Alloa now face a tough away trip to Glenrothes on Saturday.
