Burntisland Shipyard. 5 Rosyth Civil Service. 6

Heartache after night of drama

The Shipyard truly did snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in this pulsating cup final at Moorside Park. From the first minute to the last the action never stopped as both teams gave their all in the quest for silverware. For the Shipyard it was a gut wrenching defeat having seemingly had the match sewn up after taking a 5 – 2 lead mid way through the second half. Sadly the defensive frailties that have plagued the Shipyard all season reared their ugly head again and it was Rosyth came out on top by the odd goal in eleven. Manager Whitehead only had Bryan Cook suspended from his squad and he opted for Craig Russell up front rather than the more experienced Neil Johnston who was on the bench. Continue Reading

Cupar Hearts. 4 Burntisland Shipyard. 1

Shipyard knocked out of Fence ‘N’ Deck Cup

The Shipyard lost out to Cupar Hearts in this Fence ‘N’ Deck Cup tie, though the scoreline flattered Cupar, they done enough to win the tie. The Shipyard did not take their chances, particularly when they were on top in the early part of the match, and after pulling a goal back in the second half. The refusal of the referee to give what looked like a stonewall penalty for handball midway through the second seemed to knock the stuffing out of the Shipyard and there was no way back after that. Only the suspended top scorer Owen McCue was unavailable for selection to manager Whitehead. Continue Reading

Eastvale. 2 Burntisland Shipyard. 4

Quality strikes sink Eastvale

The Shipyard finished off their league season with a stylish victory over an Eastvale team who finished the match with nine men and had seven players yellow carded. They let their frustrations get the better of them when they had no answer to the football the being played by the Shipyard. Billy Whitehead made a couple of changes from the last match with Grieve and M. Hamilton dropping out, to be replaced by Whyte and T. Williams. Continue Reading

Burntisland Shipyard. 5 Fair City. 1

Shipyard cruise into cup final

The Shipyard played their last home game of the season and signed off with a resounding 5 – 1 win over Fair City, in the semi final of the Kingdom Challenge Cup. One nil up at half-time, three goals in the opening eleven minutes of the second half sealed the win and although Fair City pulled a goal back, an injury time goal from Neil Johnston took the Shipyard tally to Five. The suspended Whyte and T. Williams dropped out of the team to be replaced by Hutt and Grieve, with manager Billy Whitehead taking a place among the substitutes. Continue Reading

Burntisland Shipyard. 3 Rosyth Civil Service. 1

Russell at the double for Shipyard

The Shipyard ended Rosyth’s faint hopes of the league title with a fine 3 – 1 victory at Recreation Park, coming from a goal down the Shipyard were level at half-time before two quick fire goals at the start of the second half sealed the win. Only the woodwork and a couple of good saves from McNab stopped the win being more emphatic. McAndrew, Cook and Russell came back into the starting eleven replacing Grieve, Hutt and Johnston. Continue Reading

Star Hearts. 2 Burntisland Shipyard. 6

Fine comeback as the Shipyard progress in Cup.

The Shipyard got back to winning ways in this Kingdom Challenge Cup 2nd round tie at Treaton Park, Star. This Cup Tie remarkably finished the same scoreline as the recent league match between the sides at Recreation Park. Even more remarkable was that the scoring pattern was the same, in that Star were again 2 – 0 up, before the Shipyard scored six unanswered goals. As promised Billy made changes to the team with McAndrew, Cook and S.Hamilton dropping out, to be replaced with Hutt, T.Williams and Johnston. Continue Reading

Cupar Hearts. 7 Burntisland Shipyard. 1


The Shipyard’s week went from bad to worse with a woeful first half performance at Duffus Park. The 5 – 0 half-time scoreline summed up what was an atrocious defensive display, though things improved a bit in the second half with the final score being 7 – 1. The same eleven were given the chance to redeem themselves after Tuesday’s defeat to Lumphinnans, with Russell and T.Williams replacing Houston and Paul on the bench. Continue Reading
