Whitburn end the season with another win!

Whitburn went to Easthouses on Wednesday 25 May knowing that they would be playing in the Premier League next season, but they wanted to finish with a flourish by taking all three points. Easthouses had run Whitburn close in the home fixture, only losing 3-2 and they looked a big powerful team. The first half of the game was a very end of season affair with little quality football to describe though it burst into life on the half hour when Whitburn's young trialist Callum Robertson forced a Connor McQueenie corner over the line. McQueenie then had a shot saved as did the Easthouses' outside left. The game reverted to end of season till the half. The second half was much better with both sides creating several chances. Just after the restart a Jack Hamilton through ball put in Robertson who took a touch and then shot home from the edge of the box. With 66 minutes on the clock Gary Brass went to 21 goals for the season when he headed in a corner at the back post. Easthouses mounted a siege on the Whitburn goal after this and produced a succession of fine saves from Dougie Horne who was clearly despearate to keep a clean sheet. It was Whitburn, though, that got the fourth goal almost on the full time whistle as a screamer from Robertson to the top right hand corner sealed a fine hat trick.

In the end, after a horrendous start to the season, the final table shows just how close Whitburn came to winning the league:

Whitburn are Promoted!!!!

Whitburn today joined Tranent in next season's Premier League as they blew away the challenge of Pumpherston 6-1. They went into the half only one goal up through a Dewi Taylor goal in the 25th minute thanks to a heroic display by Pumphie's trilaist keeper who made at least three great saves. Pumpherston came out with belief in the second half and another trialist drew them level about half way through the half and then their wheels fell off as Whitburn put 5 past them in the final 20 minutes. Two Martin Russell penalties bookended a  goal by Jack Hamilton and then James Martin took over netting a brace. And so, after 5 years in the South Division, Whitburn finally escape! Well done to Tom Hendrie and his squad of players!!!! Match report.
