The funeral of our Vice President, Bruce Russell will be at Livingston Crematorium at 11am on Friday 26th then back to Whitburn Junior Social Club for tea, buffet for those who wish to attend.
Our sincerest condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time. Rest in peace Bruce. 

Whitburn beaten at Downfield

Despite taking an early lead through a Grant Hamilton header at Downfield, Whitburn left the Dundee suburb with a 3-1 defeat. Shortly after the goal Greg Gunn was red carded for retaliation and Downfield were level by halftime through a fluke deflected goal. They took the lead in controversial fashion through a penalty after Reece Boyle was adjudged to have handled a goal bound shot – the penalty was converted and a second red card shown.  Whitburn, being two men short were unable to turn the game and it was the home side who scored the fourth goal and take all three points.

Due to a family holiday I will miss the next two games and hence the website will not be updated. Hopefully Whitburn can get back to winning ways.
