Whitburn idle this week

Whitburn lose out in friendly

Definately a game of two halves today at Spartans where Whitburn took on Civil Sevice Strollers and ended up losing 5-2. Lee brown had put Whitburn 2 up with a brace of shots but a dodgy penalty just minutes from half time, which was converted, gave CSS a lifeline into the game. With Whitburn changing half the team at halftime to give everyone a run out, CSS took full advantage and were soon 3-2 up - the third an unstoppable shot from the edge of the box that flew in the top corrner. About midway through the seecond half a fourth was added, again unstoppable but this time a looping volley - by a centre half! On the final whistle a short pass back was intercepted and the attacker rounded Jordan Allan and fired into the net. A good workout for all concerned but Whitburn must now concentrate of Saturday's league game against Lochgelly in which a win would put us in a strong position in the race for promotion.

Whitburn leapfrog Rosyth to go second in the League!

As well as going second top and right back in the promotion race, this was the fourth win in a row. It was a convincing 4-2 victory against the team that was second and who, for a long time were setting the pace at the top of the league. Lee Brown started the scoring with a goal in the 7th minute and Martin Russell doubled the lead on the half hour. There were a couple of near misses at either end before Rosyth centre half Patrick Murphy scored at the back post after some concerted pressure but Russell replied straight from the kick off to ease home nerves. Brown got his second with 13 minutes to go to secure the points but deep in injury time a stooping header from Dean Ogg took a little gloss off the win. A bonus for Whitburn was that West Calder, who had been on a disappointing run, defeated Dunbar to open up a 5 point gap between us and them, though they do have 2 games in hand. Match report.

Whitburn's next game will be away to Lochgelly on 10 January as the league virtually shuts down for the Festive break.

Replica strips

Please note that replicas of the new strips as modelled by the team below and sponsored by CDL Autotec can be ordered for the tiny sum of £17 for an adult's and £13 for a child's strip. Be aware, however, that any strips ordered now will not be available for Christmas. If you are interested then please let any of the committee know.

The Pavilion

To those awaiting news of developments, we have insurance funds in our bank account. Planning permission has been granted for a pavilion based on plans submitted a few years ago but we are short of the funds needed to do this. However, it is clear that the money from the insurance company will not be enough to fund this. Therefore we have been seek additional funding which takes time. 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.
