Lochgelly do the double on WhitburnIn the penultimate game at Whitburn Academy, Lochgelly Albert defeated the home side by 3-1 to take all six points in the league.
As last week Whitburn had numerous chances but could only take one
through a Dewi Taylor strike just a minute after a lovely piece of
skill by Darren Seath had put the visitors one up with 13 minutes
played. Just before the half Andrew Watt restored Lochgelly's lead with
an oblique shot whose pace outdid Jordan Allan. Ewan Graham's ordering
off 8 minutes into the second half didn't seem to affect the game too
much as Whitburn tried to force an equaliser but keeper Colin Rushford
made several great stops and Seath sealed the victory with 8 to go
after a defensive error let him in. Due to personal reasons there will
be no report.
meeting of the fund raising forum will take place on Monday 14 April at
8pm in the Social Club. Everyone is welcome.
quotes for the rebuilding of the pavilion are now in the hands of the
insurers so we await their decision.
received the text on Saturday that the game was off as the roof had
blown off the dressing rooms, I was not prepared for the sight that met
my eyes on the following Sunday... The roof had literally
blown off and had caused some damage to the Social Club roof and the
conservatory of a neighbouring house. At the time two of our committee
were in the building preparing for our game against Haddington (who had
arrived and were in the Social Club) and although they got a huge
fright, they were luckily uninjured. On Saturday the Fire Brigade and
the police had been in attendance to make the roof as safe secure as
was possible given that more high winds were forecast.
the Social Club was evacuated for safety reasons, some rumours spread
around the town that it had been on fire, etc. This is, of
course not true and the Social Club is open as normal. Here are some
photos of the devastation (click to see the big versions):
The matter is
now in the hands of our insurers but it would seem that it may be a
while before we can play any games at Central Park. Next
week, however, we are away to Blackburn and the following we hope to
switch to Dundonald as we were due to play them at home. Looking
further to the future, who knows.
In the midst
of all the above, we were pleased to learn that our honorary president,
Tom Smith, had been nominated as the Whitburn citizen of the year
for his devoted work to sport in the town. Well done and well deserved,
Karma our main sponsors who recently won the Scottish equivalent of the
British Curry awards for 2013. Well deserved!
Juniors are pleased to announce that Brownings Funeral Services will be
sponsoring the after match hospitality for the coming season, many
thanks to them. Also, as previously mentioned, Karma
will continue to be our main sponsors, for which we are also grateful.
Work is currently underway to secure sponsorship from other local
businesses. Without their support life would be financially very
difficult. Full details of all sponsors will be updated soon.
