  1. Oooh! A wee first time visit to Inverkeithing or a return trip back to Oakley. No contest!!
  2. JONES Malcolm (Dunbar) Very suddenly on Saturday 23rd November 2019, Malcolm, loving husband of Fiona, dearly loved dad of Geoff, Russell and Graeme, dear and devoted grandad of his five grandchildren, much loved brother of John, a very good friend of many. A funeral service to which all family and friends are invited will be held at Belhaven Church, on Friday 6th December at 10.30am, followed by a private family interment.
  3. Given the circumstances at Humbug Park, I can confirm it was dull, drizzly, wet and getting darkish by the time the ref blew the final whistle. But by then, no-one was paying much attention. I was up on main road awaiting the ambulances. Sad day.
  4. If only Dunbar Utd were able to benefit from a council handout too. We already have floodlights, but there are plenty of other things needing done, such as separate female toilets, larger officials dressing rooms, reroofed enclosure, that all require financing as well. Is this another Councillor Hampshire snub for Dunbar Utd?
  5. Dunbar v Dundonald is only off cause we’re away in Fife at Oakley playing in the Alex Jack Cup Semi Final.
  6. As you are probably now no doubt aware, Craigroyston have forfeited their Alex Jack Cup, 2nd Round tie against Dunbar United tomorrow. At short notice, Dunbar United would now wish to make it known that they have a team, pitch, referee etc all ready for a home match tomorrow at 2.30pm. One thing missing!! Opposition. If you wish to take on this mantle, please contact the club either by answering this posting, contact the club on Facebook or Twitter or email the club secretary on [email protected] Many thanks.
  7. Just hearing that Craigroyston have forfeited Saturday’s game against Dunbar Utd. Apparently there is a lack of signed players - not enough to get a team together. It’s a bit of a shame but a walkover to the quarter finals it is.
  8. Gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised with Crossgates Primrose this season. Superb achievement and I look forward to my visit to Humbug Park next season in the EoS Premier League.
  9. Anyone think it’s a bit strange that the club I support, Dunbar United, didn’t apply for a license but strangely enough we do have floodlights. From what I’ve read on here and in other places, that is certainly one huge hurdle cleared that other clubs haven’t managed. Other than the obvious registration fee (£2000 I believe) and the floodlights- what else is required to get a license? Just wondering!!
  10. Been told yesterday that Berwick, if relegated, may move into the English non-league at Morpeth Town sort of level.
  11. "A Team that eats at West Barns plays at West Barns" - by Cllr Norman Hampshire. This is the direct threat that Councillor Norman Hampshire, Deputy Leader of East Lothian Council, made to a full meeting of the Dunbar United Football Club committee a few months ago. It now appears to be happening as the sports centre that encompasses the football stadium continue to get more and more awkward to deal with. First of all, it was not being allowed to play friendly matches on our own pitch. Then it was not being allowed to train on our own pitch, meaning extra expense in renting the 3G facility that is owned by the Council and not the Hallhill Sports Centre. Then a fortnight ago, the club committee found themselves locked out of the sports centre for their weekly committee meeting. This resulted in one wheelchair bound weekly lottery volunteer and their carer to either sit out in the freezing conditions or go home without assisting. Finally, on Saturday... everything came to a head. The club were locked out of the committee rooms and the tea bar. This meant that visiting players, committee and supporters were unable to have the benefit of the usual club hospitality and there was a distinct lack of Pie & Bovril. All we can do is apologise to everyone connected to Arniston Rangers and try to make sure it will not happen again - but at this stage we can give no guarantees. Add this to the fact that the full size goals used for training on East Lothian Councils 3G pitch used by Dunbar United on Tuesdays and Thursdays now have been getting padlocked in an attempt to make them unusable. This is not a new problem with Hallhill and its board, there have been ongoing problems and niggles ever since the facility opened back in 2001 and the football clubs problems with a particular individual go back even further to the original Countess Park days. I hear that meetings and such like are likely to be held in the next days or weeks but at the moment, this is the state of affairs at Dunbar United. I am not a committee member of the club but I have the full support of the club who know and asked me to post this article. There will most likely be updates and future developments will be posted here.
  12. Tonight’s Dunbar Utd v Eyemouth Utd teamsheet/programme thingy!!
  13. Ok. So my job here is unnecessary. [emoji38]
  14. I’m only a supporter of Dunbar Utd so I can only give my own personal view. What would it take to persuade the committee to join the EoS league? I’ve no idea to be fair.
