Newburgh

Recommended Posts

Thank goodness thats the away monkey off our back at last...

A hard fought win at Stoneyburn with both teams ending the game with 10 players. There wasn't a bad tackle in the game. 

Stoneyburn took the lead from a corner with a well taken header at the back post. A soft penalty award allowed Newburgh to equalise from the penaly spot before half time.

Newburgh took the lead shortly after half time with Sutherland doubling his tally for the day. 

Stoneyburn reduced to 10 men shortly after Newburgh scored. 

The home side upped their game and got a deserved equaliser with 10 to play. 

Newburgh then picked themselves up and a cracking strike with 2 minutes to go from Hutchison gave them the win. 

A real hard fought game that was well worth the cost of entry for the supporters. 

The 3 points lift Newburgh to 4th in league. 

West Calder visit East Shore Park next week.

Got to be honest and say I didn't think it was a great game with a heavy bobbly pitch making free flowing football nigh on impossible and a referee with his cards on a piece of elastic booking anyone and everyone. I did laugh when the ref sent off the Stoneyburn coach for something someone in the crowd shouted at him, not the only case of mistaken identity he made. 

A wins a win and as Grif says good to break the hoodoo.

Very entertaining game today, good attacking play from both teams and Newburgh desperately unlucky to not come away with all three points. 

An early goal after 4 minutes saw Calder go ahead but good movement gave Burgh the equaliser. A chance to take the lead only denied by the post and a couple of great saves by the keeper before the half was out. 

Second half and Burgh went ahead after a great passing move down the right crossed in and struck home, reward for a good period of play. 

As the game drew on another fine save from the Calder keeper kept them in the game. 

As the final whistle closed in Calder were throwing everything at it, 4 minutes into injury time they won a corner and threw everyone up, a good save from the initial header pushed the ball onto the bar, a Calder head was first to the rebound and despite the best efforts of the defender on the line the ball went into the net to break the Burgh hearts. 

Disappointing to only come away with a point when Burgh deserved all 3, but can't fault any of the players for effort. 

Looks like a weekend off next week with Thorntons game in the Scottish taking precedence, so Armadale at East Shore in a fortnight to look forward to.

Another good game of football at East Shore Park as Armadale paid a visit on league business. 

Armadale a very good team who appear to have put their early season wobbles well behind them, in my opinion the best team I've seen in the league this year. 

The first goal came from the Armadale centre half virtually running the length of the park before firing an unstoppable shot from the edge of the box, cracking strike. The second following a couple of minutes later when a looping cross was headed in at the back post. 

Burgh worked away and got one back just before the break after a long clearance was picked up and taken around the goalie. 

Second half Newburgh worked hard without creating any clear chances. 

Armadale got the killer third with 10 minutes to play after a scramble in the box was fired home. Burgh again worked hard to get back into things but it wasn't to be. 

If Armadale had started the season better they'd have been right up their with Pumpherston vying for the league title. 

As a general point I'm really enjoying the season so far, the worst game I've watched still had five goals in it. Great value for a £5, you could do an awful lot worse than get out and watch a game, far better than sitting in the house watching Geoff Stelling telling you the scores!

To Gogsy and Rocket, don't know who pissed on your chips but each to their own, good positive contribution to the discussion you've made there  though. 

Today's game was poor fair, the weather was horrible, and had an impact on the game though Rosyth were deserved winners, but i thought Burgh made more of a game of things second half. 

Now for a fortnight off to thaw out. Enjoy your Xmas.

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.

First home game of 2019 with KSH the visitors on a dry day but with a blustery wind. 

KSH started with the wind behind them and had the better of the early play, though Newburgh also had a couple of good chances when long balls were poorly dealt with by the KSH defence. 

The visitors took the lead with a neat lobbed finish from a long through a ball and quickly grabbed a second with a near post header from a corner. 

Burgh a plugged away and deserved some reward from their efforts but went into the break 2-0 down. 

Second half was more controlled from both teams trying to carve an opening, but few clear cut chances were to fall to either team. 

As the game drew to a close KSH grabbed a third with the last touch of the ball from another header from a corner. 

Thought it was a good game, played in the right spirit decently handled by the man in the middle. 

On to next week and the short trip to Thornton.
