  2. Junior Cup 5th Round Draw: Pollok v Fauldhouse
  3. JUNIOR CUP 5TH ROUND DRAW - Tuesday 10 December 3pm Let's hope for a home draw.....Go the Hoose!
  4. MATCH REPORT FROM BRIDGE OF DON'S FACEBOOK PAGES Bridge Of Don Thistle v Fauldhouse United match report A fantastic crowd turned out to see Bridge Of Don Thistle host Fauldhouse United in the Scottish Junior Cup. It was 3rd time lucky in terms in terms of getting the game played, the game started with the hosts on the front foot with Darren Holt delivering in an excellent ball from the left however nobody on the end of it in the box. Paul Napier then found Wozniak however the header was caught by Matthew Craig. A good ball then found it’s way to Andrew Duffy who had a wonderful lob which went over the bar. Ewan Herriot had a chance for the visitors which hit the sidenetting before at the other end, a Liam Burnett pass found Stewart Rennie who half volleyed wide. Burnett was getting into some really dangerous positions for the hosts & a solo effort from the midfelder went just wide of right hand post. David O’Donnell then had a volley towards goal thwarted by Rhys Fyfe with the Thistle defence having to weather the storm to a degree. Bridge Of Don Thistle took the lead on 41 minutes & it was a fantastic goal to match as well, the ball 30 yards from goal & up stepped Paul Napier with a free kick which he converted with perfection into the top left hand corner. A good competitive opening 45 minutes with Thistle probably doing enough over the piece to merit being a goal in front at the interval. Half time Bridge Of Don Thistle 1-0 Fauldhouse United 2nd half Fauldhouse levelled on 49 minutes, a fantastic ball came in from the left by Dean Richardson which was met by Andrew Duffy who produced a fine diving header beyond Rhys Fyfes reach. Just 2 minutes later, Thistle were ahead with Nikolas Wozniak getting into a great position before a shot from a tight angle deflected beyond Matthew Craig into the net. A Liam Burnett ball found Sam Muirhead midway through the half which was offside however thwarted by Matthew Craig irrespective with Thistle continuing to be on top however having a lack of product in the final 3rd. Fauldhouse levelled with 10 minutes to go with a fantastic strike by David O’Donnell finding the net which was disappointing from a Bridge Of Don point of view. United got a late winner on stoppage time with David O’Donnell running in on goal & finding the net beyond Rhys Fyfe. A disappointing one to take for Thistle however we wish Fauldhouse United all the best in the next round of the competition.
  5. That statement probably sums up quite succinctly the views of all the Hoose supporters after the win.... delighted with the TEAM effort and performance demonstrated to get the Hoose into Tuesday's last 16 draw. Let's hope we get a "good draw" and take it from there!. Praise also must go to JC and the management team as the effort starts from the top down. Lets keep this spirit and determination going into Saturdays game.....Go The Hoose!!

  9. Fingers crossed Fufc! Dale here we come! See you behind the goals. GTH!!
  10. Superb performance by every player yesterday after missing a penalty and then equalizing early in the second half our heads could have dropped 2 really good goals by dd but matty craig take a bow son he has came on leaps and bounds this year has matured and improved so much some of his saves this season have been exceptional roll on the next round Totally agree with you.....a truly TEAM performance yesterday against a strong physical team on a very tight park. Great game that could've IMO went any way but a fantastic strike by DD 10 mins from end puts us in the next round. Good hard typically physical junior cup tie yesterday with a good Hoose support in attendance. On to the Dale on Saturday and lets hope the lads put in a similar performance. 4th Round here we come....Go The Hoose!!
  11. Copy of yesterday's match report courtesy of the Thornton Hibs website. Scottish Junior Cup - Third Round The Hibs are out of the Macron Scottish Junior Cup following a disappointing performance against Fauldhouse who had David O'Donnell to thank for two great strikes that earned the visitors the victory that takes them into the fourth round draw. It was Thornton who created the first goal-scoring opportunity in the 2nd minute when Daniel McNab's strike from the edge of the box brought out a fine save from Matthew Craig. O'Donnell opened the scoring in the 20th minute when his well-taken free-kick entered the net low down just inside the post. Craig made another fine save to deny Garry Thomson and followed this up with a brave save at the feet of McNab as Thornton tried to get back into the game. On the stroke of half-time Fauldhouse had a great opportunity to double their lead when Scott Costello brought down Aiden Ward in the area however Costello atoned for this by saving Aaron Connolly's penalty-kick. Three minutes into the second-half, Garry Thomson scored his tenth ever goal in the Scottish with a terrific free-kick to level affairs and not long after this, Andy Adam's free-kick was well saved by Craig with Thomson and Shaun Keatings watching in disbelief as their close in efforts were blocked on the line. O'Donnell's brilliant strike from outside the area in the 83rd minute gave Costello no chance and in doing so it spoiled what was Craig Gilbert's 400th game in charge of the Hibs. Thornton Hibs: Costello, Ford, Robertson, A.Drummond, Shields, Adam, Keatings, Orrock, B.Anthony, Garry Thomson, McNab. Subs: Ireland, Garry Thomson jnr, D.Anthony, Cooper, Warrender.

  12. I must admit I did raise my eyebrows when I saw McBookies odds for Saturday's Junior Cup Game.... 13/8 Thornton 15/4 Fauldhouse 20/23 Let's hope they are correct!! GTH....
  13. After 2 weeks of Saturday weather enforced call-offs lets hope that Thornton's pitch holds up for the game being on this week. Nothing better than a good hard Junior Cup tie to get the fans excited......I'm sure that the Hoose lads will be well up for this one! Good luck....go the Hoose!!

  15. MAKRON SCOTTISH JUNIOR CUP 3RD ROUND DRAW Thornton Hibs v Fauldhouse Tie Due to be played Sat 26 October 2019. Go the Hoose!!!
  16. Not sure where you start looking back at yesterday's game although if you were a neutral fan at Park View you would probably say wow....that game had everything and well worth the admission money anytime! Firstly from a Kennoway point of view I thought they played well, strong and physical at the back and looked dangerous on the counter attack. IMO they were a bit unfortunate to have their keep keeper sent off when he slid out the box but let go of the ball but the ref awarded free kick and red carded him for saying something to him. The big keeper was right to be a bit aggrieved by the decision BUT fair play to him and it says a lot about him he apologised to the ref at the end of the game.....well done big man! The wet and slippy park probably added a lot to some of the goals the Hoose conceded today Mattie trying to take a bit too much time on the ball rather that just clear it and Sammy sliding in to give away a penalty. Having been 1 up (Wallace) then down 2-1 you thought it was going to one of these days but the Hoose got one back before the break through Duffy to go in 2-2. When the Kennoway keeper was sent off not long into the 2nd half you thought "here we go" but to be fair Kennoway rallied and scored to make it 3:2. At this point the Hoose were looking a bit unsure how to break Kennoway down BUT started to get some great cross balls into the box from the wings to take advantage of having 11 men and it certainly worked. A few substitutions added width and speed and it was all Hoose at this point 3 headed goals all from good cross balls killed the game. Their stand in keeper did well but had no chance with the headers all from within close range. Sammy, DD and Spud did the damage and in the end a very hard earned 3 points for the Hoose...phew!!!. Last 25 mins was a truly sleeves rolled up effort with everyone working hard and as a team.....and keeps the Hoose top of the league....8 goals, red card, penalty...drama excitement....not bad for £6!!! Looking forward to next Sat v Dundee East Craigie...GO THE HOOSE!!!
  17. Just to confirm Burnieman that there was no 10% deduction payment made to the SJFA yesterday, there used to be in past years but in the early rounds now clubs just split the gate once the officials are paid. Thanks for coming up to yesterdays game and hope to see you back at Park View soon.
  18. Fair assessment. Wasn’t the best performance but it’ll do. Great finish from Robbie on his debut, coolest man in West Lothian and an instant hero. Sorry I didn’t get over to say hi, was nursing a banging sore head from my exuberance on the Magners at the Friday night game at your patch for the under 20’s! You’re more than welcome up at the Hoose anytime you like though, hopefully we put on a better show for you next time. Great gesture from both sides too with the gate money going to Back Onside ❤️ SOME COMMENTS ON YESTERDAYS GAME FROM THE EAST REGION SUPERLEAGUE FORUM...… Probably fair comments IMO with neither keeper really having a many saves to make as the game was a typical hard physical encounter with both teams cancelling each other out without too much flair and creativity until a moment of magic from young Robbie (on his debut) to snatch the winner for the Hoose late on. On the balance of play perhaps a draw was the fair result BUT very happy with the win and Hoose move into next round. Winner on the day was however BOTH TEAMS who made the fantastic gesture of donating their share of gates to the Back Onside charity...….. CREDIT TO BOTH especially at a time when clubs own financial positions are "tight". SUPERB!
  19. Scottish Junior Cup : Fauldhouse 2 Carnoustie 1 Excellent gesture by both teams today to donate both shares of the gate takings to the Back Onside charity that does fantastic and much needed work in supporting players who have mental health and life challenges. Well done to both teams all who contributed!!
