Rosyth Civil Service. 5 Burntisland Shipyard. 0

Miserable night for Shipyard

The Shipyard were on the end of a heavy defeat at Rosyth as nothing went their way as the injury hit squad was stretched to the limit. Mark Brough was added to the injury list after picking up a knock on Tuesday night. McCue replaced Brough and Lamont came in for James. Trialist Salters was the only substitute available.

Burntisland Shipyard. 3 Lumphinnans United. 1

Wilson double eases Shipyard to victory

The Shipyard ended their home season with a deserved 3 – 1 victory over Lumphinnans at Recreation Park and in the process leapfrogged them in the league table. Paul Wilson was the star of the show, scoring two goals and winning the penalty for the third as the Shipyard were three up before the hour mark. With top scorer Paul Ferrier sidelined for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, Wilson stepped up to the plate and was ably assisted by Shipyard veteran Mark James. Continue Reading

Bowhill Rovers. 1 Burntisland Shipyard. 1

Disallowed goal proves crutial

The Shipyard were robbed of two points as the referee controversially ruled out what was a perfectly good goal and had to settle for a share of the spoils at Wallsgreen Park. Craig Russell rose to head the ball into the net from around twelve yards, however, the referee said she saw a push and disallowed the goal. Even the Bowhill players could not believe the decision. The only change to the Shipyard starting eleven from Tuesday saw Paul Wilson returning after injury. Continue Reading

Burntisland Shipyard. 2 Leven United. 2

Points shared in thriller

What a difference a couple of days make as the Shipyard put in a vastly improved performance against title chasing Leven United. The 2 – 2 draw was probably a fair result as both team’s bemoaned missed chances and controversial decisions. Andy Martin recovered from the injury that forced him off on Saturday and it was no surprise that he pulled off yet another penalty save. It was almost two as he got a strong hand on another one.

Burntisland Shipyard. 1 Cupar Hearts. 7

Woeful performance from Shipyard

Cupar had this game sewn up by half-time as the Shipyard gifted them four goals through some horrendous defending, in what was an overall woeful performance. As usual there was a few call offs due to one reason or another which left Billy Whitehead with only thirteen players to pick from. After all the recent heavy rain the pitch was in reasonable condition for the match. Continue Reading

Kettle United. 0 Burntisland Shipyard. 3

Shipyard notch another good win

With your match reporter sunning himself in Malta (It,s 22 degrees if you’re interested) it is a shortened match report for you today. The Shipyard proved  to strong for a young and inexperienced Kettle team as they eased to a comfortable 3 – 0 win at Kettle Park. Ferrier returned from injury and Gear was available again as they both lined up and scored against their former team. Cook was also back from injury, however, McCue was still sidelined. Continue Reading

Kinross. 0 Burntisland Shipyard. 1

Shipyard come out on top in dour struggle

The Shipyard scrapped a narrow 1 – 0 win in what was a poor match played in difficult conditions on a very narrow pitch at Loch Leven Campus. That match was moved to this venue with the Myre still being plagued by drainage problems. The Shipyard are suffering a bit of an injury crisis at the moment with Cook, Grieve and Small all missing out today. A further blow was dealt when Ferrier broke down in the warm up and had to pull out. Things got worse with both Russell and McCue limping off during the match. Andy Martin returned in goals from his suspension which allowed Stuart Gray to return outfield. Continue Reading

Burntisland Shipyard. 1 Rosyth Civil Service. 4

Shipyard sunk by Rosyth

An error strewn, lacklustre display by the Shipyard gift wrapped the points for Rosyth as they strode to a comfortable 4 – 1 win. Although short of several players it was no excuse for a very poor performance. Andy Martin was serving the last of his three match ban and the Shipyard were dealt a further blow with top scorer Paul Ferrier out injured. Continue Reading
