Whitburn get on winning track

Everyone involved with Whitburn will be hoping that today's 3-0 win at Falkirk will be the start of a revival for the club who have had a poor start to the season. Today's win was a convincing one and got off to a great start as in the 4th minute Gary Brass bulleted a 15 yard shot past ex Whitburn keeper Scott Ritchie. The second half started as explosively as Jordan Bain netted one minute in. Dewi Taylor on as sub with 15 minutes to go used his pace twice to get in on goal and hit the target the second time to make it 3. A match reprot will follow tomorrow.

The Management team and more

As has been reported in the press, Whitburn's management team of Derek Halcrow and Ian Gillespie resigned their posts on Sunday after the last defeat at home to Blackburn. The committee wish to thank them for all their efforts and wish them well for the future. Meanwhile Whitburn are actively working to get a new manager in place as soon as possible.

On a more postive note, the club now have the funds due us from our insurance company so hopefully we will be able to begin work on a new pavilion sooner rather than later. Hopefully it is onward and upward from here!

Finally, Whitburn received a bye in the recent draw for the first round of the Scottish Junior Cup!

The Pavilion

To 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.
