Whitburn's next game is OFF due to Covid issues at Pumpherston

is away to Pumpherston in the second round of the King Cup on Saturday 18 September with the usual 14:30 kick off. A common complaint of the Juniors many years ago was the number of cups, a situation that was dealt with by removing a few of the minor ones. Seems that the Seniors has the exact same problem which is made worse by the fact that the league campaign consists of 30 games!

Whitburn win away at Edinburgh South

This cup tie started with a bang as each team scored a goal in the first ten minutes - Declyn Cumming finding the top corner from 25 yards in the 5th minute and Donovan Ndiweni tapping in a great cross 5 minutes later. In the 18th minute Ndiweni was judged to have been fouled by Jack Wilsdon on the left of the box and Sean Jamieson's spot kick just evaded the keeper's dive. Jameson hit the bar from the edge following a long free kick 6 minutes on. On the half hour Lewis Milton was booked for a rash challenge out wide but the in-swinging free was gathered by Wilsdon under a severe challenge. With 10 minutes to go a good Tomaszewski cross was just missed by Darren Liddell. Louis Maguire fired home coming in from the left to equalise with 2 minutes to go and then Liddell was unlucky on the whistle when a long range shot was touched on to post by keeper Greg Fisher. Andy Thomson hit a wonder free kick wide on the left and near the corner flag which clipped the outside of the back post 4 minutes into the second half. In the 56th minute Jamieson found Ian Ballantyne whose fine strike from 25 yards was pushed over by Wilsdon. Midway through the half Thomson, driving across the box was tripped by Ryan Day and Martin Russell sent the keeper the wrong way and calmly rolled the ball in the other side of the net to give Whitburn the lead. Liddell totally outpaced an opponent in midfield in the 73rd minute and fired a good shot from the edge of the box but Fisher made a good save. 2 minutes later Louis Maguire made a great run into the box and, as he was about to centre the ball, a defender seemed to bring him down but the referee booked him for diving. The lead was deservedly doubled in the 81st minute when Thomson found Liddell whose shot was deflected by Fisher straight to Michael McGarahan, on as a sub, and his shot found the back of the net. McGarahan had another shot 4 minutes later having received the ball from Liddell but this one was saved.
