Stunning finish at Rosyth....

...As the home side scored two goals in the final minute to snatch victory from a gutsy Whitburn team who would have thoroughly deserved the three points. In a wind dominated game it was Whitburn who took advantage of it in the first half and they looked as though they would go in one up at half time through a John Watson strike from 25 yards - one of the few shots in that that half - but Thomas Hampson netted almost immediately from a corner to make it 1-1. Most Whitburn fans expected an onslught of shots from the home side but it never happened as Whitburn defended the edge of their box capably. Whitburn also attacked better against the wind and some individual brilliance from Gary Brass saw then regain the lead - the initial shot was blocked by the keeper but reounded to the striker who coolly transfered the ball from left foot to right and buried the ball in the bottom corner. Jordan Bain got on the end of sub Martin Russell's pinpoint cross minutes later but saw his shot come off the post. Hampson then got his brace to complete his hattrick almost on the final whistle to break Burnie hearts.  Match report.

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.
