Burntisland Shipyard 5-1 Tweedmouth Rangers

First half goal blitz blow’s over Tweedmouth.

A storming first half performance from the Shippy blew Tweedmouth Rangers away, meaning the match was more or less over at the interval with the home team 5-0 ahead. Five goals from five different scorers pleased manager Stuart Innes but he was left scratching his head at some of the chances missed, particularly in the second half, having encouraged his players to keep up the momentum during his half-time team talk. The second period was more even than the first and Tweedmouth fully merited their consolation goal with twelve minutes remaining. Sam Glancy was unavailable which meant a start for Robbie Crawford, now fully recovered from his long-term injury.

Two scorers are all smiles after another goal.

The Shipyard had the strengthening wind behind them at kick-off; however, it was by no means Storm Ciara conditions at this stage. Ben Anthony had a shot touched over by keeper Stuart Allan in the first minute and the striker saw another effort deflected wide a few minutes later. Gavin Ross nodded over following an Iain Millar long throw as the Shipyard kept the visitors pinned back. That being said, Rangers should have taken the lead in the 17th minute. A Miguel Friere shot was deflected wide following sloppiness in the Shippy defence and from the resultant corner Tweedmouth struck the bar and it seemed inevitable that the loose ball would be knocked home but somehow the home defence managed to get a couple of blocks in before eventually scrambling the ball away. Ross Lennie left the field injured and he was replaced by Reece Brown on nineteen minutes and almost immediately the Shipyard took the lead with a well worked goal. B. Anthony saw Dale Allan in space and his fine pass allowed Allan to drive the ball across the keeper and into the corner of the net from around 15 yards. It was 2-0 a minute later as Crawford flicked the ball home from inside the six-yard box with the assist coming from Brown, though it would be fair to say it was a somewhat scrappy goal. There was a similar scramble as previously, this time in the Tweedmouth box, as the Shipyard players could not force the ball over the line. Michael Robinson blazed wide in a rare Rangers attack but most of the action was taking place in front of Allan with B. Anthony peppering his goal. Two attempts were just off target before he struck with a sublime effort in the 32nd minute as he curled the ball beyond Allan from the left-hand side of the box. Ben had another shot tipped over before brother Darrell was also denied by the overworked Tweedmouth keeper. Ross made it 4-0 when he headed home at the back post following another corner. It became 5-0 in added time as substitute Brown rifled the ball into the net with an angled drive.

Robbie Crawford flicks in the Shippy’s second.

The second half was much less frenetic with the first notable attempt coming from the boot of D. Anthony with almost an hour on the clock. Michael Gibb then saw a bit of action as he saved low to his right from a Regan Graham effort. The Anthony brothers combined with Ben feeding Darrell only for the latter to shoot wide. Tweedmouth pulled one back in the 78th minute when Friere netted, a goal that the youngster’s performance merited. B. Anthony rattled the Tweedmouth bar and Shippy sub Andy Watt couldn’t direct the loose ball on target. Watt then shot over following more good play from B. Anthony in what was the last meaningful action of the match.

It’s back on the road this week as we travel to Whitestone Park to face Peebles Rovers in a league match. Kick-off is at 2.30pm.

Burntisland Shipyard 3-0 Dunipace

Shippy dump Dunipace in dominant performance.

The Shipyard produced a performance that was long overdue as they swept aside promotion chasing Dunipace with relative ease at Recreation Park on Saturday. The main difference from previous matches was that the defence looked solid, giving the whole team the confidence that had been lacking in recent weeks and with that came the desired performance and result. Iain Millar returned from suspension and Robbie Crawford was back in the squad following a long-term injury. There were also home debuts for the Anthony brothers but unfortunately for Darrell it was cut short due to injury with less than ten minutes on the clock.

Dunipace had the first attempt at goal in the 3rd minute with Shippy keeper Michael Gibb able to watch Aiden Stevenson’s looping header clear the crossbar. Millar saw his header from a Sam Glancy corner drift off target with the giant Shipyard defender appealing in vain that he had been manhandled as he met the ball at the back post.  Crawford replaced D. Anthony who hobbled off having picked up a groin injury after nine minutes. It was obviously disappointing for Anthony but it was great to see Crawford returning following his long layoff. Young Crawford almost made a dramatic return four minutes after coming on when he gathered a cross from the left, turned and shot, however, his attempt was straight at keeper David Kane who held comfortably. There was a controversial moment in the 18th minute when B. Anthony got clear of the visitor’s defence in pursuit of a long ball. He was hauled to the ground a yard outside the box as he looked to create a scoring opportunity. The referee chose to show a yellow card for the crude challenge which drew much debate around the ground. Glancy’s free-kick was spilled by Kane and Dale Allan saw his follow up attempt blocked before the danger was cleared. The Shippy were very much on top at this stage and exerting a fair amount of pressure on the Dunipace goals. B. Anthony saw his free-kick clear the bar by a yard or so before the hosts took the lead on 31 minutes. From another fine Glancy set piece delivery Millar rose highest to nod home off the underside of the bar and despite the valiant efforts of the Dunipace defence to clear, the ball was over the line and the goal was given. The visitors might have gotten level a few minutes later but no one could get on the end of a ball driven at pace across the Shipyard box.

Big Milzy nods the Shipyard ahead.

Dunipace had the first attempt in the second half but Morgan Galloway headed wide from a corner. Crawford showed great close control as he weaved his way into the Dunipace box, however, his shot failed to match the quality of his run and Kane saved easily. The Shippy doubled their lead on the hour mark though there was a touch of good fortune about the goal. Another Glancy corner caused panic in the box and despite clearing the ball off the line a couple times Dunipace’s luck deserted them as the ball cannoned off Allan and into the net. The Shippy should have been three ahead after an unbelievable passage of play. B. Anthony broke clear down the right-hand side, took the ball around the advancing Kane and shaped to cross. He then nutmegged the defender on the by-line and beat Kane again. Sandy Strang couldn’t connect with the goal gaping, however, Glancy at the back post did connect but somehow put the ball over from a couple of yards out. Remarkable! In the 73rd minute a third goal duly arrived via the penalty spot. Glancy was involved again as he burst into the box and he was barged off the ball as he shaped to cross. Referee Billy Cooper had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and B. Anthony made it four goals in four appearances though Kane was unlucky as he got a hand to the ball but couldn’t keep it out. Galloway was off target again from another Dunipace corner, though to be fair, Gibb was rarely troubled by the shot shy visitors attack. B. Anthony flashed the ball across the face off goal following good work from Allan in what was the last meaningful action of the match.

Ben Anthony’s penalty finds the back of the net.

It was a much-needed win for the Shipyard, a win that sent the young “Shippy Ultras” home happy as they sung their songs leaving the ground. Next week (01/02/2020) sees the Shippy on their travels again as they face Arniston Rangers for the first ever time in a league match at Newbyres Park. Kick-off is at 2.30pm.

Edinburgh United 3-3 Burntisland Shipyard

Late Strang counter earns Shippy a point.

A late strike from substitute Sandy Strang earned the Shipyard a well-deserved point in a six-goal thriller at Paties Road Stadium on Saturday, however, there was still disappointment in the Shippy camp as they really should have left with all three points. Once again poor defending was the source of frustration as the hosts went in at the interval 3-1 ahead, that being said, credit has to go to the player as they showed great character in the second half and only the width of the post denied them victory. There was a debut for Darrell Anthony as he joined up with his brother Ben in the Shipyard starting eleven but that addition to the squad was tempered as Iain Millar was serving a one match suspension.

The Shippy took the lead with only two minutes on the clock as a Sam Glancy strike from the edge of the area beat United keeper Ash Tufail at his near post. Unfortunately for the visitors the lead only lasted six minutes as Brian Breen turned a Sonny Swanson shot into his own net. The Shipyard could have regained the lead in the 12th minute but Reece Brown shot wide of the open goal. The Shippy were hit with a sucker punch in the 21st minute as the hosts broke up the park and took the lead. Good play between Stephen Scott and Euan Lee created the chance and when the ball wasn’t cleared Scott was on hand to knock the ball home. The Shipyard were still on the front foot and in the ascendancy but could not find an equaliser and shortly before half-time there was close calls at both ends as firstly Scott missed a great chance for United and at the other end Tufail held a fierce Darrell Anthony shot. Deep in added time the Shipyard shot themselves in the foot as they needlessly conceded possession in their own half and Scott set up Shaun Meikle who slotted the ball home.

Manager Stuart Innes did not mince his words at the interval and it seemed to have the desired effect when Reece Brown went close on two occasions as firstly, he fired a shot across the face of goal and he was unlucky in the 51st minute to see his effort come back off the post. The pressure paid off as the Shippy were awarded a penalty in the 57th minute when Scott Hay fouled Ben Anthony in the box. The striker dusted himself down and confidently converted from the spot. Corey Robertson kept his team in the lead with a brilliant goal line clearance to deny Darrell Anthony. The Shipyard were well on top though United’s Scott had a rare chance for the hosts before the Shippy got their just rewards. In the 89th minute a dangerous cross was not properly cleared and when the ball broke to Strang he gleefully smashed the ball home to get his team level. Another five minutes and who knows what might have happened but ultimately it was the concession of poor goals that cost points again. Shortly after the final whistle some players clashed as they left the pitch and the outcome was that a red card was shown to Gavin Ross and it was very disappointing that he was singled out for punishment given the nature of the incident.

The Shipyard host Dunipace FC at Recreation Park on Saturday (25/01/20) with the match kicking off at 2.00pm.

Edinburgh United: A. Tufail, T. Black, C. Robertson, S. Hay (C. Henderson), R. Kerr, S. Meikle (J. Finnie), S. Miller (J. Smith), E. Lee, S. Swanson, D. McKinlay, S. Scott. Unused Subs: C. Hanratty, M. Maughan, C. Coppola.

The next home match is against Dunipace on 25th January 2020.

Glenrothes 5-1 Burntisland Shipyard

Calamitous day for Shippy as defence crumbles.

A catalogue of horrendous errors cost the Shipyard dear at Warout Stadium on Saturday as Glenrothes were gifted an easy win. It really had to be seen to be believed, from the concession of a needless penalty in the 37th minute to losing the fifth goal in added time, because this wasn’t schoolboy defending as young players would be a damn sight better than this. Glenrothes were in charitable mood too as the Shipyard goal came from a bad mistake, however, they limited their howlers to just the one. Brian Breen made a return to the Shipyard ranks after a loan deal with Oakley United was agreed on Friday, allowing the big defender to take his place in the starting eleven. Ryan O’Donnell returned after illness and Gavin Ross was back in following a suspension.

The Shipyard made a bright start to the game and were on top in the opening stages as they dominated the ball. Ben Anthony drove the ball across the face of goal before a moment of pure brilliance in the 11th minute. The ball fell to Sandy Strang in the middle of the box and he smashed a thunderous shot towards goal. Incredibly, Glens keeper Ross Wortley dived to his left and touched Strang’s strike away for a corner. It was a truly remarkable save, undoubtedly the highlight of the match. Wortley was involved a few minutes later as he raced to the edge of his area to pip Anthony to the ball. When the ball was played in to Reece Brown his attempt lacked the power to trouble the keeper who had made his ground. In the twentieth minute Anthony’s shot beat the keeper but a defender was on the line to hack the ball clear. Glenrothes came into the match a bit more and created a couple of half chances without threatening the goal. Sam Glancy and Anthony both fired in long range efforts before the game turned dramatically. Ian Millar tangled in the box with a Glens player at a set piece and the referee quickly blew for a penalty indicating Millar had a hold of his opponent’s shirt.  Fionn McLeod Kay confidently converted from the spot. No complaints about the decision, however, if the ref gives a penalty for that, he should really be penalising a lot more.

Ben Anthony went close on a couple of occasions.

The Shippy were deservedly level within a minute of the restart following a clanger from Wortley as he slipped allowing Brown to knock home the loose ball. There was worse to follow. A Glancy free-kick was held by Wortley before Shippy keeper Michael Gibb’s day turned sour. Breen rolled the ball back to him and everyone was astonished when he let the ball go under his foot and trundle into the unguarded net to let the Glens regain the lead. Another Glancy free-kick was just off target and Millar did well to keep the ball in play at the back post but no Shipyard player was on hand to connect with the loose ball. At the other end Gibb stood big as Kay tried to dink the ball over him. Millar headed a Brown corner over as the Shipyard searched for the equaliser, however, calamity was about to strike at the other end again. Despite several chances to clear the ball no one managed to do it and suddenly Glens new signing Owen Andrew found himself with just Gibb to beat and he rounded the keeper and knocked the ball home. Gibb tipped substitute Lewis Hynd’s effort over the bar in the 75th minute but a fourth goal arrived seconds later when more slack play allowed Glenrothes to fire the ball across the face of goal for Andrew to net from close range at the back post with the Shipyard claiming in vain for offside. The final disaster arrived in added time with Gibb again culpable as he sclaffed another pass back at the expense of a corner. From the set play Patrick Calderwood rose unchallenged at the front post to head the ball home.

Reece Brown nets the Shipyard goal.

What looked like a very good performance and positive result in the offing, turned into a disastrous day for the Shipyard as they shot themselves in the foot time and time again and then need to drag themselves out of this current run quickly to save their season.

Another Fife derby awaits on Saturday (11/01/2020) as Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts visit for a cross conference league match at Recreation Park. Kick-off is at 2.00pm.

Oakley United 3-2 Burntisland Shipyard

Shippy beaten despite late comeback.

Despite a storming comeback that included a debut brace from Ben Anthony the Shipyard ultimately came up short against Oakley United at Blairwood Park on Saturday. It was a welcome return to action for the Shippy having not played a competitive match since November 23rd due to adverse weather conditions, and it showed as it took the Shipyard around seventy minutes to get going. The pitch was in poor condition at the outset and as the match wore on it deteriorated significantly as some areas turned into a quagmire with the players doing well to produce a decent game for the spectators. As mentioned previously Ben Anthony made his long-awaited debut following his signing from Thornton Hibs some weeks ago, however, the squad was stretched due to illness, injury and suspension with only three substitutes listed.

The Shippy fell behind as early as the eighth minute as Oakley moved the ball down the left-hand side and when the ball fell to Mark Allan, he lashed an angled drive into the roof of the net. The Shipyard had a let off with fourteen minutes on the clock after Jordan Galloway was dispossessed and they were relieved to see the Oakley player somewhat fluff his lines. A couple of Ian Millar long throw ins and a corner saw the visitors exert some pressure on the Oakley defence, however, play returned to the other end and Craig Martin saw his strike deflected for a corner and from the resultant set piece Allan shot off target. A Sam Glancy free-kick fell to Ross Lennie in the centre of the home box but unfortunately for the Shippy, the midfielder’s shot drifted just wide of the goal. Oakley doubled their lead on 32 minutes and from the Shipyard’s point of view it was poor as Martin was afforded a free header at the back post. Far to easy! Glancy lashed a loose ball over the bar on the stroke of half-time.

The Shipyard made a change at the break with Benn Hutchison replacing Galloway with the sub slotting into the middle of the park with Lennie moving to right back. Anthony saw his shot deflected as the Shipyard started the second period brighter before Oakley regained the ascendancy when John Harrison almost capitalised on a Millar error. The striker didn’t have to wait too long for his goal as the Shippy defence got themselves into a total fankle at an Oakley free-kick and Harrison had an easy finish at the back post. Michael Gibb saved well from Stuart Love just before Pete Bell replaced Andy Watt as the Shippy made another alteration to their formation. There was a slight delay as Oakley looked to make a substitution though apparently the player hoping to come on was not on the teamsheet, therefore he could not take any part in the game. The Shipyard started to dominate the game now and were pushing Oakley back with Lennie, Bell and Hutchison driving the Shipyard forward. The Shipyard pulled a goal back with ten minutes remaining as a flowing move up the right-hand side found Anthony and he drilled the ball across the keeper and into the far corner to notch his first Shipyard goal. Four minutes later the Shipyard were awarded a penalty when Reece Brown was scythed down as he burst into the box and Anthony made no mistake from the spot sending the keeper the wrong way. Oakley were on the ropes now and hanging on for dear life and they had their substitute keeper Aaron Jones to thank as he pulled off a sensational save to push away a thunderous Brown strike as the game moved into added time.

At the end of the day it was too little too late for the Shippy and very much a case of what might have been had the played with the same intensity for a bit more than fifteen minutes or so. They now move on to another Fife derby as we make the short journey to first foot Glenrothes on Saturday (04/01/2020). Kick-off at the Warout Stadium is 2.00pm.

Shippy update.

Although the recent bad weather has put paid to our last two matches, firstly at Coldstream and then at Hawick, there has been plenty of activity at Recreation Park with a couple of major transfer deals taking place. Midfielder Johnny Galloway has left the Club to join his local team Crossgates Primrose and we would like to put on record our thanks to Johnny for his time and effort at the Club and wish him all the best for the future. Coming in to the Shippy just a few days later was local lad Ben Anthony. Ben joins us from junior outfit Thornton Hibs where he was top scorer in the East Region Junior Super League and despite protracted negotiations the Club were thrilled to get Ben’s signature in the end. Ben is chomping at the bit to get started in the East of Scotland league following the two recent postponements and hopefully he will get his first taste of competitive action this Saturday as the Shipyard host high-flying Tynecastle FC at Recreation Park. Note the kick-off for this match is at 1.30pm. Saturday will be our final match of the year at Recreation Park as the league takes a break for one week and unfortunately we do not have a home festive fixture as we are away to local rivals Oakley United on the 28th December before we first foot another local rival in Glenrothes on the 4th of January. That being said we have a great game to look forward to on the 11th of January with another Fife Derby, this time against Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts at Recreation Park and with the last match still fresh in everybody’s mind it promises to be a cracker.

Burntisland Shipyard 1-4 Preston Athletic

Shippy beaten by late goals.

The final scoreline certainly didn’t reflect the even contest that this match was, nonetheless, it was a third successive defeat for the Shipyard and this 4-1 reversal has severely damaged the Shipyard’s hope of getting into the promotion scrap. Despite falling behind after a mere twenty seconds the Shippy went on to control the game for long periods and it was surprising that it took them an hour to draw level. The concession of a penalty with twelve minutes remaining gave Preston the opportunity to regain the lead and after the spot kick was converted expertly by substitute Jack Jardine, the visitors went on to add another two goals as the previously solid Shipyard defence crumbled. Despite the miserable weather the teams served up an entertaining contest for the hardy souls that braved the conditions. The Shipyard starting eleven showed two changes from last week with Dale Allan and Connor McQuade replacing Sam Glancy and Johnny Galloway, who left the Club in midweek to join his local team Crossgates Primrose. It would have been three changes but for Benn Hutchison picking up an injury in the warm up meaning Jason Finlay retained his place.

The Shippy found themselves a goal down after twenty seconds when defensive hesitancy allowed Preston to cut the ball back from the by-line and Johnathan Edmond knocked the ball home at the front post. Allan and Reece Brown were causing the visitors defence problems, however, at this stage they were resolute and giving nothing away. The aforementioned pair combined in the 16th minute and Allan was denied at close range by a fine save from Jack Findlay. Four minutes later a Grant Skinner ball into the six-yard box was begging to be knocked home but the Shipyard failed to capitalise. Preston’s threat was rare but six minutes prior to the break the Shipyard had keeper Michael Gibb to thank as he pulled off a great save at close range and moments later, he was on hand again as he made a brave double save to deny the visitors.

Michael Gibb makes a fine save.

The Shipyard were back on the front foot as the second half got underway and Brown was thwarted by Findlay who pushed his free-kick away. An Allan attempt was deflected wide for a corner and the resultant set piece was scrambled away after an unconvincing punch from Findlay. There was a huge appeal from Preston for a penalty moments later following a Gavin Ross challenge inside the box, however, referee Kyle Hall thought the big defender got enough of the ball to wave play on. To rub salt into the visitors wounds the Shipyard went up the park and equalised. Findlay failed to hold Allan’s strike and young Finlay was on hand at the back post to knock the ball into the net. It was the Shippy’s turn to appeal for a penalty as Brown went down in the box following a challenge but again the referee wasn’t interested. A looping cross into the Preston box was tipped away and Ross Lennie’s follow up was blocked at the expense of a corner. The Shippy continued to dominate proceedings as Brown saw his shot saved and then the Shippy’s trialist substitute hit the bar with a header. Lennie was involved again as he headed over following a corner moments before the game swung in Preston’s favour. Ross committed a foul just inside his own area and after the dust had settled Jardine made no mistake from the spot. The Shipyard had another penalty claim denied as Lennie went down in the area and the referee’s decision to caution him for simulation was harsh in many observers’ eyes. Preston scored a third in the 82nd minute as the unchallenged Jardine headed home from a corner and a fourth arrived three minutes later with the Shipyard defence all at sea Mark Smith drilled a loose ball home from the edge of the area.

Jason Finlay finds the net for the Shipyard.

Manager Stuart Innes was naturally disappointed with the outcome but felt his players could not be faulted for commitment and endeavour and they could be proud of their efforts as they were the better team for most of the match with a couple of lapses in concentration cost them dear.

The Shipyard are on the road for the next couple of weeks with two trips to the borders with Coldstream and Hawick Royal Albert United providing the opposition.
