Stirling stunned Scottish Cup finalists and Second Division Champions Gretna at Forthbank Stadium.
Albion opened the scoring after a mix-up between Derek Townsley and goalkeeper Alan Main allowed Chris Aitken to fire into an empty net.
Stirling doubled their lead a minute before the interval when Paddy Connolly headed into the net.
Greta finally scored in the 72nd minute after a goalmouth scramble as Kenny Deuchar fired into the roof of the net.
John O'Neil was red carded for the visitors in the final minute for deliberate handball.
