Crossgates Primrose 2-1 Burntisland Shipyard.
The Shipyard continued their pre-season build up with a short trip up the road to face Crossgates at Humbug Park. Both teams had many new faces following summer overhauls, with the Shippy listing six players from their new U/20 set up in the nineteen man squad. Despite the poor weather conditions the teams produced a decent spectacle with plenty of chances at either end, with the hosts scoring two late headed goals to cancel out Lee Halpin’s fine lobbed effort in the first half.

Final match win for resilient Shippy.
The Shipyard concluded their season on a high with a narrow but deserved win over Eyemouth United on Saturday at Recreation Park. A goal from Donald Hyslop in the 74th minute turned out to be the winner but unfortunately Ormiston’s win at Tweedmouth meant that the three points were not enough to lift the Shippy off the bottom of the table. Given the position the team was in a the bottom of the league, it was no surprise that once again it was a depleted squad that was available to the management team. A huge amount of credit has to go to those guys who have stuck with it and worked their socks off all year for this great Club. Continue Reading
Shippy still without an away win.
Having headed to the borders with a threadbare squad it was no surprise that the Shipyard left Home Park empty handed, however, this young Shippy team made a decent fist of things, particularly in the second half and had they managed to get a second goal it might have set up a grandstand finish. Due to a variety of call offs the Shipyard only had eleven players available but those who turned up gave their all and they can all be pleased with their performances. Continue Reading
Shippy stung by rampant Thistle.
Once again, the Shipyard suffered a heavy defeat as Lothian Thistle HV won by seven goals to nil at Recreation Park on Saturday. The only consolation, if you could call it one, would be that Lothian can beat most teams in the East of Scotland League by this type of margin. Understandably, when you are at the bottom of the league not many decisions seem to go your way and when the opposition are awarded three penalty kicks, one of them with barely a minute on the clock, you are up against it to say the least. To further rub salt into the wounds it was an extremely harsh decision to give that early spot kick as the ball clearly bounced up and hit the man rather than the player deliberately handling the ball.
