Whitburn win in Fife

Last season Whitburn's record in Fife was dire and they lost early on to today's opponents, Crossgates. Today they reversed that result with a 2-0 win in which all the football was played in the first half. And, what football it was at times as they looked like they would steamroller their opponents with chance after chance. Crossgates have their keeper to thank that it wasn't four or five at the  half as he made several great stops despite appearing to be injuered for most of the half. He was beaten early by an inswinging corner by Jason Walton and then by a Nartin Russell shot on the half hour. Neither team could get going in the second half and Whitburn escaped with a good three points, especially welcome as both Haddington and Blackburn lost to keep them in sight. Match report.

Eyes are now forward to next week's Scottish Cup tie against St Rochs which will be played at Stoneyburn. Our opponents were beaten 4-1 by Glenafton this week but we will have to be very wary since the beat Lochgelly 5-2 in the first round.

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.
