Stunning finish at Rosyth....
the home side scored two goals in the final minute to snatch victory
from a gutsy Whitburn team who would have thoroughly deserved the three
points. In a wind dominated game it was
Whitburn who took advantage of it in the first half and they looked as
though they would go in one up at half time through a John Watson strike
from 25 yards - one of the few shots in that that half - but Thomas
Hampson netted almost immediately from a corner to make it 1-1. Most
Whitburn fans expected an onslught of shots from the home side but it
never happened as Whitburn defended the edge of their box capably.
Whitburn also attacked better against the wind and some individual
brilliance from Gary
Brass saw then regain the lead - the initial shot was
blocked by the keeper but reounded to the striker who coolly transfered
the ball from left foot to right and buried the ball in the bottom
corner. Jordan Bain got on the end of sub Martin Russell's pinpoint
cross minutes later but saw his shot come off the post. Hampson then
got his brace to complete his hattrick almost on the final whistle to
break Burnie hearts. Match
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.
