    Huge game today in Bo'ness beating Dundonald. A really important win as visits to Tranent & Bonnyrigg coming up. A defeat could have shattered morale.
  2. Bo'ness United 2018/19

    The difference from last week is that Dundonald didn't park the bus, even when down to 10, unlike Tynecastle last week. The return of Brian Morgan was a big help too. Their 'keeper was undoubtedly MOTM with one save at the end from Tiwi being outstanding. Certainly more urgency today and a huge 3 points.

    Not many games historically on the 19th, so we'll keep the Dalkeith theme going. This time we go back to 1991 and a Brown Cup tie at Newtown. The BU's won 3-1 with this team: Kirkwood, McLennan, Malloy, Purdie, McLean, Cheape, Dalton, Allison, Dawson, Burns, McLaughlan. The goals came from Gary McLennan, Jimmy Dawson & Jimmy Burns. In a top of the table clash in 2008, Forfar West End were the visitors. They were beaten 2-1 with goals from Andy Scott & a Jon Tully penalty.

    They don't need to talk to each other now. That resignation letter would tell any player all they need to know.

    An interesting game for the 18th, in 1958 saw the BU's at Dalkeith Thistle in the Thornton Shield. It ended 4-2 for the BU's, with this team playing: Wilson, Martin, Gavin, Dair, McKenzie, Collumbine, Philp, Millar, Cummings, Sinclair, Davidson. The goals came from David Sinclair, Tommy Millar and a brace from Matt Cummings. In 2003 Camelon were defeated in the Junior Cup, at Newtown by 2-0. Ian Ferguson and David Muirhead the scorers.

    Were you asleep during our three Super League title-winning seasons in that intervening period. No, of course not, you were probably at Ibrox.

    1976 was another Junior Cup glory year and this day, the 17th, saw a 4th round tie at home to Coltness United. The BU's triumphed 5-0 with this team: McBain, J McQueen, McGuinness, McIntosh, I McQueen, Miller, Scobie, Balanowski, Mitchell, Temperley, Anderson subs McGeachie & Robinson. The goals came from Tom Balanowski, a hat-trick from Billy Mitchell and an Ian Miller penalty. The Journal used the headline "Brilliant Bo'ness baffle Coltness". The win was notable as 'keeper Gordon McBain was injured only 5 minutes into the 2nd half. Reports also stated that Coltness were a fair side and that Tom Balanowski was the difference between the teams.

    One match stands out on the 16th in 1965. The BU's should have been visiting Bonnybridge but the Duncan Stewart Memorial Park was unplayable. We had already played them at Newtown and so they switched their 'home' match to Newtown. How they must have regretted that decision, as they were sent home on the back of a record-equalling 12-0 defeat. Reports state that the BU's could have scored 20 but ex-Bo'ness winger Hugh Hannah also missed two open goals for the visitors. The team that day was: Trialist, Bellamy, Kennedy, Myles, Chambers, Bloy, McManus, McKinnon, Meikle, Trialist, Craig. Archie Meikle netted his second 5 goal haul of the season, Frankie Craig weighed in with a hat-trick and the trialist inside -left hit a double (it may have been George McKinnon but cannot confirm). The other two came from Sandy Myles & Alex Bloy.

    Yes , 1-0 at Shotts with an Archie Meikle winner.

    Trying to get this on line early is leading to daft wee mistakes. You're quite right the first game was on the 4th and was 2-2. We then played a Brown Cup tie with Grangemouth United before the replay on the 15th. Cracking one for BU fans tomorrow!
  11. Bo'ness history - Day by day

    Definitely the 15th now 1994 saw a triumph in the Fife and Lothians Cup. It all started with a 5-0 win at Lochore Welfare. The team was : Lawson, Hoggan, Meldrum, McLennan, McLean, Fraser, Allison, Burns, Gallagher (Dalton), Whyte, McLaren. Stuart Gallagher scored a double, with the others coming from George Allison, Mark Whyte & Jimmy Burns. 1966 saw the first of 3 Junior cup-ties with Larkhall Thistle. This one ended 0-0 at Newtown. 1983's run to the Junior Cup Final was being stalled as again we drew 1-1 with Brechin Victoria, in a home replay.

    All I will say is don't hold your breath

    Actually, we do historically have a very good record in January. I promise I'll mention the first Blackburn win that crops up
  14. Bo'ness history - Day by day

    Yep, that's what comes of uploading this whilst rushing around getting ready for work. Info is for the 14th though.
  15. Bo'ness history - Day by day

    Back to more recent times for the 14th. A good result from 1995 when Dalkeith were defeated 5-1 away in the 3rd round of the Fife and Lothians Cup. The goals came from Eddie Hallford, Jimmy Gilmour, Mark Whyte and a double from John Sludden. The team was: Binnie, Dalton, Meldrum (Burns), Cullie, McLean, Wilcox, Whyte, Allison, Sludden, Gilmour, Hallford. In 2006, Shotts were defeated in the Junior Cup 2-0, away. The goals came from new signing Andy Roberts and Marc Anthony.
