An update from our Manager

Since the last update we have managed to remain unbeaten with draws against both Whitehill in the League Cup, and Broxburn last Saturday in the league.  I know most people will be expecting me to say this,  but exiting the cup has now allowed us to focus on the bread and butter and the task of securing our place in the Premier League next season. 

Obviously this season is unique with the amount of relegation places in the league,  and had it been a regular season then we would have been comfortable in the league,  and gutted to be knocked out of the cup at the expense of Whitehill Welfare.

It’s fair to say we are well short on points, and drawing games is the main reason,  but I feel last Saturday’s fixture against Broxburn Athletic was a good draw. The spirit our boys are showing right now is great to see. We had a bit of a fight about us,  playing to the final minute and getting a point which I felt we deserved. 

We have players who are willing to play out of position for the good of the team and again that is very pleasing to see.  Boab Berry in particular who was outstanding at both right back, and then at left back after Evan Fleming’s injury. 

Bob’s partner gave birth to a baby boy this week,  and I’m sure everyone will wish the whole family well with their new arrival. 

I hope that everyone is looking forward to a derby double header away from home this week starting at Olivebank tomorrow against Musselburgh Athletic,  followed by Tranent Juniors at Foresters Park on Tuesday.

As always, Dunny, Smally, myself and all the lads really appreciate your support, and it would be great if you can come along to the ground and cheer on all the boys.

All the best 

Kevin Haynes
