Whitburn through in League Cup with win against Hawick

Whitburn won this cup tie comfortably in the end by 5-2 against Hawick Royal Albert ay Central Park today. Special mention must be made of keeper Danny Farrell returning between the sticks after his horrendous injuryy against Dunipace – it was great to see him back! The early going was dominated by Whitburn though they only had two goal bound shots in the first quarter, both comfortably saved by Jack Miller – the first from Owen Main from an edge of the box shot after good build up and the second from Darren Liddell who received Main’s pass, shimmied outside his man before shooting from 10 yards. The promised goal duly arrived around midway through the half when Sammy Watson stooped to head a low Jack Henderson corner powerfully into the net. With 26 minutes gone Stevie Clark had a good shot blocked and there were several decent blocks by the Albert defenders to protect Miller. A great pass from Clark to Ross Crawford in the 33rd minute saw him knock the ball wide past his man and fire in a great diagonal shot that Miller saved with his legs for a corner................

Signing news

Two further players have arrived at the club in a bid to strenghthen the team they are midfielder Jack Hodge and defender/midfielder Euan McGill and we welcome them to Central Park! Moving out to pastures new are Ally McInness and Andy Johnstone who are now with Bathgate and Blckburn respectively - thank you both for your contributions at Central Park

Two new arrivals at the club at the start of the new year in the shape of Kevin Fotheringham and Pearse Carroll. Kevin was signed from Camelon and will supplement the attack whilst midfielder Pearse joins us from Falkirk. Also with the departure of Scott Woodhouse ex Blackburn player and assistant manager Craig Young joins the club. Welcome all three to the club!

We are pleased to announce another signing - Sammy Watson, defender and previously captain of Armadale. Welcome to the club!

With the severe injury to Danny Farrell a replacement experienced keeper suddenly became a necessity and Whitburn have filled the vacancy (at least until early February) with the arrival on loan from Bathgate of Sean Brown.

Under20s

Whitburn u20s won another three points tonight with a 5-0 defeat away at Livingston, the highlight being an 18 minute hattrick by Zane Russell who made a rare start as a sub. The first half was fairly even with few chances till the half hour when a great left wing cross from Harrison Edwards picked out Lewis McFarlane whose daisy cutter shot from 15 yards found the net. Eight minutes later a poor defensive home header landed at the feet of Kris Orr who half volleyed the ball home from the edge of the box. Arran McLean was unlucky not to get the third as a drive from the edge of the box hit the underside of the bar near the interval. Midway through the second half following a foul wide left Russell hit his first with a great shot on the right after the ball came out to him on the edge. His second was a similar strike after a long diagonal ball by Mick McGarahan found him. With five to go he completed his hattrick from a free kick on the right that found the bottom corner. Blair Hughes had a fairly quiet night against largely wayward Livi shooting but he made an important stop in both half to secure another clean sheet.

Cup Fixtures

The final of the East of Scotland League Centenary Cup against Linlithgow at Prestonfield on Sunday 10 September proved to be a massive success and boost for the club as we ran out 3-2 winners. A fine day it was too as young Harrison Edwards catapulted us into a two goal lead early on and Ross Crawford another before Linlithgow got one back. Another, what would end up being a second consolation, came early in the second half. New keeper Danny Farrell had a fine game with a couple of great stops prior to his superb penalty save five minutes from the end. All players were heroes on the day and were well supported by a good travelling support. Well done to the management team too who got their game plan spot on!

Having been given a bye in the South Challenge Cup we were drawn away to Broxburn with the second round game to be played on 16 September. The Alex Jack cup quickly follows this game on 23 September when we play Arniston Rangers (again) in the third round with the winners of this tie facing either Bo'ness Athletic or Newburgh in the semi final on 28 October and the final will be on Sunday 26 November. Finally, our legendary bad luck in cup ties returns with a game at Bo'ness followed by another away tie at Kirkcaldy and Dysart if we win the former - dates unknown at this time.
