  1. EoS Conference A chat 2018-19

    Been told yesterday that Berwick, if relegated, may move into the English non-league at Morpeth Town sort of level.
  2. "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.

    Ok. So my job here is unnecessary. [emoji38]
  5. Junior football, what is the future?

    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.
  6. Junior football, what is the future?

    My personal preference is stay. I suspect that the Juniors will be part of a huge pyramid in the fullness of time. In the meantime, we are Juniors.
  7. Junior football, what is the future?

    The other Twitter account is linked to the gentleman who updates the website. He may be referring to “who knows what’s happening” in relation to what league we’ll end up in if the clubs that wish to leave actually do leave. The last I heard, there was still talk between SJFA and SFA about putting in some sort of block to clubs leaving at such short notice. I doubt the club Twitter account was referring to Dunbar Utd leaving Juniors. But as you said, all we can do is wait and see.
  8. Junior football, what is the future?

    Not my Twitter account. Having spoke to several committee at Glenrothes On Saturday, the club have no plans on applying to the EoS league. None.
  9. Junior football, what is the future?

    Quit the ship stirring Burnie Man. I’ve said already, Dunbar Utd ARE NOT ONE!! No mays or may nots about it. Jeez!!
  10. Junior football, what is the future?

    Not Dunbar Utd. No intention of going EoS. I’ve said this before.
