AGM and Player of the Year
The AGM of the club will take place on Monday 11 May at 7pm in the Social Club. Anyone with an interest in Whitburn Juniors is invited to attend.
Also, an open invitation is offered to any supporters who wish to attend the Player of the Year which takes place the following Saturday 16 May. The format will be the same as last year with a quiz, some horse races and a buffet. The whole thing gets underway at 1pm, again in the Social Club.
Sadly the end of the season has been overshadowed by the sad loss of another stalwart of both our committee and the community as a whole, Raymond Wallace. As most of you will now know Raymond passed away on the 25th of April, shortly after arriving at his holiday destination of Crete for a well deserved break. Raymond served on the Whitburn committee for many years, latterly taking over from Tam Smith as president though he did step down from this role recently. Having retired almost a year ago he took over the running of the foodbank and was also involved in other community ventures. he will be sorely missed and our deepest sympathies go to his wife, Pamela and his wider family. When details of his funeral are released we will let you know.
Whitburn remain in South Division next season
Whitburn missed out on promotion as Rosyth overtook them for second place. As expeted the two draws that ended Whitburn's season were nowhere near enough to hold of the challenge of the Fife team (or indeed Falkirk who can still secure second spot themselves thanks to a great winning streak.
Preparatons are already underway for next season as a number of players have signed and the club are actively seeking out players to strengthen the squad. One certain departure is assistant manager Ally Skillen who resigned after the end of the season - we thank him for all his efforts.
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.
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.
