Whitburn's final game...

..Will be away to Dundee Violet on Saturday. The Supporters Club bus will depart from the Social Club at 12:45. This will mean that the Dundee outfit will be the first and last opponents of what has been a traumatic season for Whitburn. Typically, the team is not yet mathematically safe as they are level with St Andrews on points though they have a +8 in terms of goal difference. So, it is possible that a big reverse at Dundee could deny them survival. Hopefully the fact that they have got themselves above the Fife team will give the team a lot of confidence which will take them to a resounding victory - c'mon the Burnie!

Whitburn's point should make them safe!

Whitburn really had to get something out of this game to ensure they would not face a difficult trip to Dundee Violet next week till needing that elusive point to secure premier League football next season. In the end they achieved a hard earned point in a game in which the referee did them few favours. Like last week, however, they conceded the lead – twice this time compared to thrice last week. They got off to a great start taking the lead in the 8th minute through a great Chrissy Patrick strike from the edge of the box. Glenrothes drew level in the 21st minute when a slippy ball slipped through Dougie Horne’s hands during one of the torrential downpours that marred this game and eventually seemed to go in at the back post off Euan Graham. Whitburn restored the lead 12 minutes later when Dewi Taylor drove up the left and fired in a shot that beat the advancing keeper. Controversy came in the 57th minute when a Glens midfielder clearly handled the ball before releasing a player wide on the left who seemed to be nudged off the ball via a shoulder charge but the referee pointed to the spot and their centre forward netted the penalty. The remainder of the game was pretty nerveracking but Whitburn held out for the draw and only a double figure defeat next week will deny them remaining in the second tier league. Well done, boys!

Supporters Club News

The bus departs from the social club at 1:15pm for next Saturday's game against Haddington.

The Supporters' Club are looking for four mannequins for an upcoming event to display strips. If any one can help, please get in contact.

We also have confirmation of funding from the Land Trust which will allow us to proceed with planning to erect our seated, covered enclosure and install solar panels on the Changing room roof. We are offering a "seat for life" for anyone who is interested. This will cost £50 and guarantee shelter at the Social club side of the park.

Money raised from the sale of seats will go towards getting the base ready for the prefabricated structure to be brought in at the end of the season.

The supporters club website can be found here .
