Whitburn win a trophy!

Yes, its true! Whitburn deservedly won the Wullie Johnston Memorial Trophy tonight with a 4-2 win against Armadale of the Premier League. For 75 minutes Whitburn played much better than the opposition and had a 3-1 advantage thanks to 2 trialist goals and one by Gary Brass. The last 15 minutes saw Armadale lay seige to the Whitburn goal and they got one back but Brass eased Whitburn's nerves with his second with 2 minutes to go.

Upcoming fixtures

The first 5 fixtures for the new season proper are out with 4 league games swiftly followed by a visit to Forfar Albion in the East of Scotland cup at the beginning of September. The league games, all in August, are at home to Blackburn on the 8th, away to Dunbar on the 15th, at home to Lochgelly on the 22nd and away to Livingstonon the 29th.

Of course before all of that we have a number of friendlies to enjoy, listed below. The first two games, played at King Georges proved to be good run outs and allowed the manager to have a look at some more trialists. The first against Torbothie Rose ended in a comfortable 6-0 and the second saw the team lose narrowly to Hill of Beath from the Super league.

The team

Whitburn have signed 14 players as they chase promotion into the Premier League. They are: D Horne, A Porteous, L Brown, C McQueenie, M Russell, D Taylor, J Hamilton, A Gunn, J Walton, J Bain, G Brass, J Moyes, M Adams and G Skinner. They will, of course, be looking to add more players before the season starts proper on August 8th.

The Pavilion

Work has recently begun on the new pavilion which will replace the old one which, you may recall, had its roof blown off a while ago. So far the foundations have been laid (which meant the removal of a huge amount of soil) and we were awaiting the delivery of concrete for the floor. After this we should begin to see more upwards progress.

Some pictures of early work on the new changing rooms. The top three were taken on 27 July. Needless to say the inclement weather is hindering progress to somee extent but it is hoped that the building will be completed by late August.

A reminder of the damage done to the old pavilion.
