Whitburn seek a new manager

It is with regret that we have to announce that we have parted company with our Manager Andy Cunningham.
We would like to thank him for all he has done and wish him all the best for the future.

Whitburn earn point at Tayport in a game of two halves

In common with much of the away support we were around 20 minutes late to the game due to a tailback on the M8 and so missed the first goal. In light of recent performances we were expecting to be told it was for Tayport but, in fact, it was for Whitburn! It came in the 19th minute and was scored by Andy Thomson who latched on to a through ball and fired the ball into the net – a great start to Euan Graham’s career as the stop gap coach following Andy Cunningham’s departure. The remainder of the half was evenly contested with Whitburn seemingly playing with more drive, confidence and enthusiasm than in some recent performances. Just before the half John Paul Greig fired home a corner from a tight angle to double the lead. The second half was different entirely as Tayport went three up front and began to control the game (without looking too dangerous to begin with to tell the truth). Eventually the pressure told and midway through the half JamieMackie scored to narrow the gap. With 15 minutes to go the teams were level when Dale Reid netted from a good through ball. Gary Sutherland almost won the game for the home side 3 minutes from the end but his header crashed off the bar. The game ended on a sour note near the end when Gary Brass tried to take a quick free kick 25 yards out but was prevented from doing so. Numerous players from both sides then got involved and it took around 3 minutes to sort it all out. Despite there being faults on both sides the referee decided to red card both Brass and Lewis Milton. Thankfully he blew the final whistle just after the resumption. In the end a much more promising performance from Whitburn who can hopefully move on from this. Match report.
