BRECHIN CITY have the dubious honour of being the first team in 126 years to go a whole league season without a win.
Darren Dods’ side ended their Scottish Championship campaign with a 5-1 home defeat to Queen of the South this afternoon.
WE'VE SCORED!! Layne with the goal 1-5

Two goals in eight minutes of stoppage time at the end of the first half set the visitors on their way, and Stephen Dobbie went on to complete a hat-trick, with Lyndon Dykes bagging a brace.
It means Brechin’s league record finishes at W0 D4 L32, with a goal difference of -70.
Having managed just four points, all from draws, they finish 43 points adrift of safety and 70 points behind title winners St Mirren.
Promoted through the play-offs last year from League One, the part-time Angus club struggled to compete with their full-time rivals this season.
Vale of Leven were the last Scottish team not to record a single win in a league season back in 1892.
Club chairman Ken Ferguson said yesterday: “It’s been a difficult journey but certainly one that we don’t regret in any way.”
