Whitburn win first trophy in 17 years
Whitburn had a convincing 4-2 win today against North Division winners Dundee NE in the Consolation League Cup. Whitburn got off to a great start when Andy McQuillan fired them into the lead in the 8th minute with a shot from a tight angle. Dundee didn’t buckle under the intense Whitburn pressure and replied with a goal from Kevin Milne as he took advantage of a misplaced pass midway through the half. With 7 minutes of the half to go to go Darren Liddell restored the lead when set up by Andy McQuillan. 11 minutes into the second half a high back pass from around the centre line was handled by NE keeper Neal Ferrie and an indirect free kick was awarded about 8 yards out. The ball was touched to Liddell, got through the wall, came off Andrew Ballantine and found the net. With 15 minutes to go McQuillan was fouled by the Paul Lunan 40 yards out and reacted strongly to this for which he was yellow carded. However, he continued his protest and was shown the red card. To make matters worse McArtney followed him to the dressing room for the same dual protest. Dissent would be shown with 8 minutes to go, this time by the Kevin Milne who also had to go as he had been booked previously. Just after sub Dewi Taylor squared to McQuillan who controlled well before firing in a shot which the keeper fumbled over the line to put Whitburn seemingly in easy street. Yet, amazingly it was the visitors who got the 6th goal when Ryan Smith headed in a left wing corner. A loud shout from the Whitburn faithful greeted the final whistle as the first trophy had been secured for a long time. Gary Brass, playing in an unaccustomed centre half role due to players missing, was named man of the match. The picture below was taken by Ann Haddow. Report.
