Whitburn rout Newburgh in the Scottish

On paper this game looked to be potentially difficult for Whitburn given their inconsistency this season and the fact that Newburgh sit atop the South Division. In the end it turned into  walk in the park as Whitburn won 6-0 despite ending with 10 men. Conditions were blustery on the south side of the Tay but luckily had little real impact on the game. Newburgh had a couple of half chances in the early going but neither were on target, a pattern that was repeated throughout as Dougie Horne had barely a save to make in the 90 minutes. Whitburn went one up on the quarter hour when a high clearance was headed back in the Newburgh midfield and fell to Iain Griffin who calmly dinked over the advancing keeper. 5 minutes later they were 2 up as the keeper misjudged a pass back from halfway and the ball trundled into the net. It was three in the 37th minute when a good move down the right ended with Greg Nicol  firing home. The first half rout would be complete with three minutes of the half to go when a pass out wide to the left found Griffin and he beat the keeper with a shot that went across him to the back post. Andy Thomson went on a mazy run in the 58th minute which ended with a shot from the edge of the box that gave the keeper no chance. The only negative for Whitburn came with 10 minutes to go when 2 goal hero Griffin was red carded for a lunging challenge which many thought seemed a little harsh. This time it was Whitburn that scored with 10 men as the sixth went in thanks toanother Thomson mazy run and shot with 4 minutes to go to complete a convincing win. Next up is Dundee North End on 28 of September – away of course!

Cup draws

Whitburn's usual luck with cup ties continues as they were recently drawn in the first round of the Scottish Cup, the East of Scotland Cup and the Fife and Lothians Cup - remarkable considering that the first round in each is reduced - the Scottish to only 4 ties! Even worse, in each of these ties Whitburn came out as the away team, but even more remarkably the second round of the Scottish and the Fife and Lothians (both already drawn) the winners of these ties were also drawn away! This means that during the months of September and October Whitburn might have one solitary home game if they win their cup ties.
