Whitburn's final game is a game of two halves

Whitburn drew 2-2 away to Dundee Violet in their final game of the season to secure Premier league survival by one point over St Andrews. And what an amazing game it turned out to be - a vintage game of two halves. Whitburn totally bossed the first half playing well against a dispirited looking team and went in 2 up at halftime with goals from Gary Brass and Jordan Bain. In truth they could have doubled that lead on balance of play but for some heroics by the home keeper (and playing some great football too). Violet came out for the second half fired up after what must have been a stern talking to by their coach and had levelled the score within 10 minutes with goals from Lee Milton and David O'Neill. Meanwhile Whitburn had lost all of the drive they had shown in the first half and were struggling to put 2 passes together. Just on the hour James Martin won a penalty but the usually consistent Martin Russell's spot kick was saved by the keeper. During the remaining half hour both sides had chances to snatch the three points but both were thwarted by good goalkeeping and a draw was probably a fair result in the end. And so the curtain closes on another season and one that most Whitburn supporters will not remember too fondly, but at least we stayed up. On a personal note the trip down the Fife Coast Tourist Route after the game was fun apart from the torrential rain that greeted us after our dinner in Crail!

Supporters Club News

The bus departs from the social club at 1:15pm for next Saturday's game against Haddington.

The Supporters' Club are looking for four mannequins for an upcoming event to display strips. If any one can help, please get in contact.

We also have confirmation of funding from the Land Trust which will allow us to proceed with planning to erect our seated, covered enclosure and install solar panels on the Changing room roof. We are offering a "seat for life" for anyone who is interested. This will cost £50 and guarantee shelter at the Social club side of the park.

Money raised from the sale of seats will go towards getting the base ready for the prefabricated structure to be brought in at the end of the season.

The supporters club website can be found here .
