Whitburn out of Scottish
lacklustre performance at wind swept Stoneyburn saw Whitburn's
involvement in the Scottish Cup come to an end in round 2, beaten by St
Rochs. The visitors scored a goal in each half
through Liam McMahon and Thomas McClusky whilst a solitary strike from
substitute Lee Brown was all the home side could muster. There were a
number of other chances at either end but in all honesty St Rochs had
the better of them with Jordab Allan pulling off at least three great
saves early in the second half. As we often say at this point, we can
now concentrate on the league but it would have been nice to get a
decent run. Like last week I don't have time to a report tonight but
this will be remedied tomorrow.
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.
