Whitburn well beaten at Thornton

Whitburn started this game very well and could have been three up within the first 20 or so minutes but couldn't convert their chances and in the end went down by a score of 3-0. Just after a Whitburn free kick with a following wind ballooned miles over the bar, Daniel McNab fired in a low free kick against the wind from 25 yards which bounced just in front of James Penman and over him and into the net. Another free kick 6 minutes later also found the net but was ruled offside. Early in the second half a careless defensive pass put in Liam Forbes and he was fouled as he drove into the box. He made no mistake with his spot kick and then drove through the defence with ease before slotting the ball into the bottom corner to make it 3-0, this in the 54th minute. Whitburn were unable to threaten the home defence in any way during the rest of the match whilst Thornton had at least 3 good chances to add to their lead. A hugely disappointing performance after the last two games which had seemed to show a team starting to gel. This game must be totally forgotten about and the team must do their utmost to make amends next Saturday when they take on another promoted team, Dunbar. There will be no report on this game.
