Whitburn win in Fife
season Whitburn's record in Fife was dire and they lost early on to
today's opponents, Crossgates. Today they
reversed that result with a 2-0 win in which all the football was
played in the first half. And, what football it was at times as they
looked like they would steamroller their opponents with chance after
chance. Crossgates have their keeper to thank that it wasn't four or
five at the half as he made several great stops despite
appearing to be injuered for most of the half. He was beaten early by
an inswinging corner by Jason Walton and then by a Nartin Russell shot
on the half hour. Neither team could get going in the second half and
Whitburn escaped with a good three points, especially welcome as both
Haddington and Blackburn lost to keep them in sight.
Eyes are now
forward to next week's Scottish Cup tie against St Rochs which will be
played at Stoneyburn. Our opponents were beaten 4-1 by
Glenafton this week but we will have to be very wary since the beat
Lochgelly 5-2 in the first round.
those awaiting news of developments, we are currently waiting for our
money to be deposited into our bank account. When this
happens we can hopefully get the builders in to start work on a new
pavilion - hopefully based on plans that we had made a few years ago.
However, it is clear that the money from the insurance company
will not be
enough to fund this. We are therefore having to seek additional
funding. Needless to say this also takes time, however, we are hopeful
that things can get underway soon.
In the meantime, we continue to have permission to
use Whitburn Academy's pitch and changing facilities for home games.
This is hardly ideal from a number of perspectives, but it has been
sanctioned by the East Region. Hopefully we can get back to our home of
Central Park before too long.
