Albion Rovers 3-0 Ayr United

Albion Rovers began life in Scottish League One with a comfortable win over Ayr United.

Last season's League Two winners were ahead as early as the second minute when Ross Davidson converted Josh Mullin's cross.

Ali Love headed in the hosts second just before the break.

And Love completed the scoring midway through the second half, latching on to John Gemmell's cross to fire into the net.
