    Yes indeed. Eamonn Fullerton it was.
  2. Bo'ness history - Day by day

    Teaser goes back to 2009 and a home St Michaels Cup tie with Bonnyrigg Rose. After a 1-1 draw, the penalty shoot-out was lost 15-16! Who missed two penalties for the BU's in that shoot-out?

    May 23rd 2015 and it's the final League game of the season and a chance not to be missed of inflicting a 3rd defeat of the season on Linlithgow. Despite going behind in the 1st half, Nicky Walker equalised on 66 minutes and became the toast of Newtown when he worked a neat 1-2 with Chris Donnelly to net the winner. The team was: Baillie, Cowan (Robb), Devine, Murphy, Leiper, Nimmo (Alexander), Walker, Philp, Anderson (Gibb), Donnelly, Sloan

    Heard a rumour (from a Fifer), that Crossgates were looking to do a wee link-up with Kelty. How that is to take shape I don't know.
  5. EoS Premier Thread 2019-20

    It's a cracking division at first sight. Superleague with no Tayside trips basically, as we all knew would be the case. Too early to predict winners until the new signings are made but looking forward to it already!

    Caught you out there. You can't use trialists in cup matches.

    Get those transfer rumours posted!

    Kevin Thomas? Well done Kevin

    Ah well, yesterday's plea came up with o answers and so it remains a match shrouded in mystery. Today, back to a teaser and in 2004 we played a Brown Cup semi-final against Whitburn. Who netted a hat-trick for us that day?
  11. Bo'ness history - Day by day

    May 22nd The first huge day in the club's history as the Junior Cup is brought home to Newtown for the first time. The opponents that day at Hampden were Irvine Meadow and in front of a crowd of 55,602, the BU's triumphed 2-1. Paddy Buckley opened the scoring on the hour and although Fullerton equalised on 79 minutes the BU's kept their nerve and clinched the Cup on 86 minutes through Willie Wilson, with a goal described by the Sunday Post as "a finish in a million". The team was: Graham, Mitchell, Keenan, Walls, Stewart, McKie, Wilson, Pinkerton, Buckley, Sproull, Black

    Instead of a teaser, here's a plea for info. On this day in 1969, the BU's travelled to Prestonfield for an R L Rae Cup 3rd round replay. Definitely played on that date but not reported on by the Journal, presumably because Bo'ness won. Can anybody supply match details?

    May 21st We go to 1990 now and a Peter Craigie Cup quarter-final tie at home to 2nd Division promotion chasers Broxburn. The BU's cruised to a 5-1 win, with the forward line all scoring, John McLaughlan, Eric Ewing, George Allison, Gary Dalton & Jimmy Dawson. The team was: Kirkwood, Malloy, Cheape, McLennan, McLean, Fisher, Dalton (Burns), Ewing, Dawson, Allison, McLaughlan

    Training made a heck of a difference. We would never have got through one extra-time match with Kegs in charge, let alone the three we did. You have to look at tactics too. Constantly altered by Max to react to a situation, not just standing silent and cross-armed and clueless. Kegs was a nice guy, maybe too nice.

    May 20th Forward in time to 1994 and a Brown Cup semi-final away to Ormiston Primrose. No great difficulties, surprisingly, as the BU's won 4-0 with undoubted star of the show being hat-trick hero Paul McLaren. Gary Wilcox getting the other goal. The team was: Kirkwood, Hoggan, Meldrum, Dunleavie, Malloy, Cheape, Dalton, Wilcox, Gallagher, Burns, McLaren
