Burntisland Shipyard 0-1 Coldstream

Uninspiring Shippy lose out in dull encounter.

This was a typical end of season affair that lacked any real urgency and quality and probably the only surprise was that we did get a goal, one that ultimately separated the sides. With both teams having little to play for and missing key players from their squads neither side looked like they were familiar with each other as many players were playing out of position.

It took until the 24th minute for an attempt on goal and that came from the Shippy’s Dan Thomson whose shot was well saved by keeper Matt Hall. A minute later Hall saved again from Mikey Gibb though this time it was a whole lot easier. The best chance of the half fell to Mikey Moodie but when clean through his shot was too close to Hall and the keeper was able to block the left footed strike. Coldstream’s only attempt on target in the first half was from Regan Graham and although his strike beat Cole Miller, Gibb was on hand to head the ball clear.

 Coldstream broke the deadlock in the 50th minute when a ball played towards the back post was gathered by the unmarked Drew Cummings who had time to control the ball before lashing it into the net. The Shipyard rarely looked like troubling the visitors defence other than when Ethan Bauld was forward for a set piece but the Coldstream defence closed him down and his effort was blocked. The final chance fell to Coldstream in the 86th minute but the headed effort flew well over the bar. Coldstream did have to play out the last few minutes with only ten men after Bailey Paterson was shown a red card after receiving a second caution.

The Shipyard play their final game of the season against Armadale Thistle at Recreation Park on Saturday (18/05/2024) with the match kicking off at 2.30pm.
