    Newburgh

    A trip over the bridge for the first game of the new year and a visit to Livingston. A better day for a game of football you'll struggle to find in January, but the park was soft and bobbly which made a passing game difficult for both teams. The game got off to a niggly start with a few tough tackles flying in, as both teams struggled to get their timing right. Livy took an early lead with a neat near post header, though it was only a matter of 2 minutes until Burgh were back on level terms. Livy then had a penalty saved, the rebound coming back into the box and fired home only to be disallowed for offside, to everyone but the referees bemusement. Livy took the lead just before the half with a volley from close in. 2nd half and Livy began to take charge of the game, the third goal being the pick of the game with a lovely passing move almost the full length of the pitch then fired across the keeper into the corner of the goal. As Burgh pushed to get back into the game it left gaps at the back that Livy took advantage of to give a lopsided look to the score board. A disappointing start to the year, but not as bad as the score suggests. On to next week and the league cup with super league Star being the visitors to East Shore Park.
