Whitburn ease past Harthill in League Cup
Whitburn defeated Harthill 3-0 in the League Cup at Central Park to do the double on their near neighbours having gone nap at Harthill previously. The teams went in level at half time and it was not till the hour mark that Whitburn took the lead through Andy McQuillan. Darren Liddell got the second and McQuillan completed his brace to give the Burnie a comfortable win in the end. This may not be enough to allow the Central Park side to progress, however, as they only took one point from the two games against Armadale - Harthill would need to beat Armadale next week for Whitburn to qualify as group winners.
Last minute winner at Tayport puts Whitburn in top spot!
The game proved to be a bit of a disappointment as both teams struggled to get any fluency down to three possible reasons: a very strong wind, a bumpy pitch and lack of playing after a couple of postponements. Nonetheless Whitburn got the vital goal (below, pic by Ann Haddow) with 1 minute to go when Grant Hamilton seemed to bundle Seb Tinning's low corner over the line at the back post after the ball pinballed around in the Tayport 6 yard box, an ugly goal to win an ugly game but one that leapfrogged Whitburn over Lochee and Broughty to the top of the league! The other two goals came in the first half with Tayport netting on the half hour through a Josh Chalmers' shot from 10 yards - a goal that had been threatened as the home side were marginally more direct. With 2 minutes of the half to go Darren Liddell was put in wide on the right and rifled a shot across keeper Jack Shaw and into the net to give the Burnie an unexpected equaliser. Whitburn competed far better in the second half with Gary Brass spurning two good chances whilst Tayport also had a similar number of decent chances but the game never blossomed into a classic. Whitburn will not care as it is the first time they have topped the East Super League since their debut in season 2005/6 (when coincidentally Tayport won the league). Match report.
