With the clubhouse redevelopment gathering apace there has been a slight change to our fixture list over the coming weeks.
The forthcoming fixtures are:
07/11/2015 Leith Athletic v Burntisland Shipyard.
14/11/2015 Stirling University v Burntisland Shipyard.
21/11/2015 Hawick Royal Albert v Burntisland Shipyard.
28/11/2015 Burntisland Shipyard v Duns.
The Kick off time for the match against Stirling University on Saturday has been moved back 30 minutes to 3pm.
The Club is delighted to add two “new signings” behind the scenes as Raymond Drury has joined the Club as goalkeeping coach and Shippy old boy Mark James has accepted an invitation to join the committee. Raymond has coached at both youth and adult level as both an outfield and goalkeeping coach. As a player Raymond had a spell at St Johnstone as a youngster and was involved with local teams in the Rosyth area. Jamesy needs no introduction to Shipyard fans as he has starred for the club during several spells with the Club. Indeed Mark has scored for the Club over four consecutive decades starting in the eighties and ending just a couple of seasons ago. Quite a remarkable achievement in anyone’s book.
The Club would like to offer both men every success in their new roles.
The Club wishes to point out that any posts made on Facebook or other social media are not necessarily the views of the club, manager or committee. The Facebook page in not an official Burntisland Shipyard AFC media outlet. It goes without saying that the club was deeply embarrassed by the comments made and would urge any fans or readers of this website to use this site as an official source of information regarding Burntisland Shipyard AFC.
The Shippy will visit Keirs Park on Wednesday night to play a friendly against junior outfit Hill of Beath Hawthorn with the match kicking off at 7.15pm.
Mid October should see the start of the Club’s pavilion extension. With all loose ends more or less tied up the contractors have given us an estimated start date. At this stage it is difficult to say what matches, if any, will be affected while the works take place, with the project likely to take around 12 weeks to complete. It is important that the contractors have access to the ground through the double gates at all times, therefore we would ask everyone to take care where they are parking. It is also paramount that safety is observed whilst the work is being carried out, therefore we would ask everyone to be safety concious and also make sure children whether taking part in training or spectating are aware of any potential dangers.
Burntisland Shipyard 0 Cowdenbeath U/20’s 4.
The Cowdenbeath youngsters, with a couple of first team players thrown in to strengthen the team, ran out comfortable winners against the Shipyard last night. A goal from Cammy Muirhead saw the visitors ahead at the interval and goals from Stephen Scott,Craig Johnston and Liam Callaghan in the second half secured their victory. The match gave manager Alex Lowe a chance to look at a couple of trialists and give some of his squad valuable minutes on the park but Cowden keeper Jamie Sneddon was rarely troubled as the Shippy struggled to create many chances.
The Shipyard will host Cowdenbeath U/20’s in a friendly at Recreation Park on Tuesday 25th August 2015 with a 6.45pm kick off.
Admission to this match is free.
