Whitburn's season ends in a whimper rather than a bang

Whitburn had the chance to play agaisnt ten men today and came up short of ideas which resulted in a 1-1 draw against Falkirk. Yet they played well in the first half and were unlucky to go in at the break a goal down after James Mcateer had scored midway through the half after a succession of corners. Alasdair Griffin was sent off early in the second half for retaliation on Jack Hamilton who received a yellow for his lunge. Greg Skinner headed the equaliser minutes later and Falkirk were on the ropes for a few minutes. They steadied, however, and thereafter Whitburn were barely able to mount a serious challenge on their goal. Controversy came late on when Adam Porteous, driving into the box, appeared to be barged to the ground but the referee waved away the penalty claim which might have kept the promotion challenge going. Below, Greg Skinner finds the net - click image to view the report.

Whilst mathematically Whitburn could still be promoted, both Rosyth and Falkirk could overtake them:

Whitburn's Central Park is not for sale - Official

There have been a number of totally unfounded rumours on Pie And Bovril (and elsewhere) going about that Whitburn Juniors were going to sell Central Park. The committee wish it to be know that these rumours have been totally invented by some third party and at no time has it even been discussed.

Replica strips

Please note that replicas of the new strips as modelled by the team below and sponsored by CDL Autotec can be ordered for the tiny sum of £17 for an adult's and £13 for a child's strip. Be aware, however, that any strips ordered now will not be available for Christmas. If you are interested then please let any of the committee know.

The Pavilion

Good news at last! Work is scheduled to start on the new pavilion on 1 June and will hopefully be completed by the start of the season. In the meantime the old one will be demolished and the ground made fit for building prior to the start date.
