Shippy record second comfortable win over Eyemouth.
The Shipyard eased to a comfortable 5-0 win over rock bottom Eyemouth United at Recreation Park on Saturday, with the win ensuring that the Shippy would not finish in the bottom two of Conference B, furthermore, the possibility of climbing up another place in table is still viable with six more points up for grabs. Tynecastle sit just two points ahead of the Shippy with the Edinburgh side having one match less remaining. That being said, it will be a difficult task with Lothian Thistle HV and Tranent Juniors providing the opposition in the final two fixtures at Recreation Park this season.
It took the Shippy a mere twenty seconds to open the scoring with Robbie Crawford being the man on target. Andy Watt got the second in the 25th minute and another strike from Crawford, his fifth of the season, just before the break, more or less ensured the points would be staying in Burntisland.
In the second half Charlie Simpson added a fourth and Watt also got a brace when he completed the scoring with ten minutes remaining. The big striker is now breathing down the neck of Reece Brown in the race for the top goalscorer award as he finds himself only one behind the young striker.
The Shipyard host Lothian Thistle HV on Saturday (20/04/2019) with a 2.30pm kick-off.
