United come out on top after penalty shootout.

Congratulations to Burntisland United won the Stenton Shield for the very first time after they defeated the Shipyard 5-3 on penalties after the match finished three all during the ninety minutes. Reece Brown scored twice for the Shippy, one being a penalty with Andy Watt also netting from the spot. A double from Jamie McKay and a last gasp equaliser from Craig Farley took the match to penalties with the Shippy’s Benn Hutchison the only one failing to convert when Ryan Couser saved his strike.

The Clubs are delighted to announce that £376 was raised on the night to go towards Dillon McLaren’s wheelchair fund. So a big thank you to everyone who turned out on a wet night to support such a worthy cause.

Shippy draw pre-season opener.

The Shipyard and Bowhill Rovers drew 1-1 in a friendly at Dalgety Bay Sports Centre on Saturday. Both sides were rusty, particularly in front of goal, as a few decent chances were missed at both ends, though credit to the keepers for some good saves. Bowhill took the lead in the 48th minute after the Shippy made a hash of clearing the ball, however, Jonny Galloway, playing his first match since dislocating his elbow, scored a great goal as he curled in a beauty from the edge of the box on the hour mark to level things up.

Burntisland Shipyard: A. Trialist, R. Lennie, G. Skinner, D. Hunter, I. Millar, S. Strang, R. Brown, Jon. Galloway, A. Watt, E. Stanfield, S. Glancy. Subs: Jor. Galloway, B. Hutchison, R. O’Donnell, B. Trialist, C. Trialist.

Dillon McLaren

The town’s two football clubs are delighted to announce they will be participating in a challenge match to raise funds towards a new wheelchair for local lad Dillon McLaren. As many of you will be aware the townspeople have been rallying around Dillon to help him get the new wheelchair he requires. So why not come along to Recreation Park on Wednesday 17th July 2019 and support this worthy cause. The match kicks off at 7pm and entry to the match will be a minimum donation of £3 for adults and £1 for concessions. The food and drinks outlets will be open on the night with all proceeds also going towards the fund.

Rover and Rover again.

As we start to look ahead to next season a couple of cup draws have already taken place and for the Shipyard we can look forward to visits from the Rovers in the shape of Raith in the first round of the newly expanded Fife Cup. In the South Region Challenge Cup draw it is the Rovers from Threave who will make the long journey to Recreation Park. The dates of both fixtures have still to be confirmed.

Next season’s opponents unveiled as Shipyard are drawn in Conference A.

The Shipyard will face four different Fife opponents next season with Oakley United and St Andrews United also featuring beside the Shippy in Conference A. Both teams will be played on a home and away basis. There will be a visit from Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts and the Shippy will travel to newcomers Glenrothes with both these teams in Conference B. Four teams that were in Conference B with us last season, Dunipace, Eyemouth United, Haddington Athletic and Lothian Thistle HV will again provide opposition both home and away. Dalkeith Thistle and Tynecastle will again visit Recreation Park as Conference B teams.

The format means that every team over the two conferences will be faced at least once giving every club 17 home and 17 away league fixtures. Both Conference winners will be promoted with the two runners up playing off for the third promotion place.

The fixture list will be announced in due course.
