Byline: Martin Braidwood

NEW Queen's keeper Peter Hamilton proved he knows the formula for success when he marked a dream debut with a penalty save.

He signed this week from Strathclyde University where he is studying for a PhD in analytical chemistry.

And Hamilton was thrilled with his spot-kick stop to deny Andy Rodgers and help his new club to their first home victory since April.

He said: "It was a dream debut. A penalty save and a clean sheet, I couldn't have written it myself. I'm delighted with how it worked out." Shire were awarded the penalty in the 13th minute when Giuseppe Capuano felled Ryan Stevenson. Rodgers fired the ball straight down the middle and Hamilton produced a fine block.

Shire's Dean Richardson rattled the Spiders' bar with a free-kick in 35 minutes and in the ensuing melee the ball appeared to come off a Queen's defender's hand - the first of several penalty claims that were denied.

But Queen's second-half pressure paid off in 74 minutes. Ryan Holms broke down the left and crossed for Frankie Carroll to steer home the winner.

Victorious boss Gardner Speirs said: "We've won at home and we've not done that for a while, so I'm delighted."

Shire boss Jim McInally said: "We never made their goalie work enough and switched off for their goal."


HERO: Carroll is mobbed
