  1. EoS Premier Thread 2019-20

    The 3 conferences created more excitement around the middle of each table as the 5th to 7th placed teams battled for a place in the Premier. Let's be honest and say there were a number of sides who realised it was outwith their reach and so we had some uncompetitive games across the 3 conferences and some high scores. Losses were expected and accepted. It will be different in the Premier as every side battles for points to try and avoid the bottom 3 or 4 places. Going to be really good league.

    He was centre forward but it was maybe the 10 shirt he had on . Their top scorer from the EoS website is Kayne Paterson

    Jamboness has heard probably the same rumours as me but doesn't want to post them and ruin his reputation as a poster of fact. I on the other hand like a bit of gossip and am happy to post rumours and face ridicule. So here goes.........in the order I heard them:- Max has a number of scouts out looking at potential signings every week. Zander Miller has agreed to join the BU as long as Broxburn don't win promotion to the Lowland League. The Tranent no 9 is signing for the BU's . #LovesMax Zander Miller is going to sign for Camelon as long as he gets Kierans big wages. (Fact :-Kieran told me he would be at Hamilton Accies next season) Kieran McGachie the big striker from Bonnyrigg is joining the BU's. #LovesMax2 On loan Ryan Stevenson going to sign on for the BU's permanently. Zander Miller is staying at Broxburn as he doesn't need the money and will get to play Scottish Cup football at Broxburn. Max has several players ready to sign. Well that's the RUMOURS and stories I have been picking up. Anyone heard anything else ?

    Here's the place to post your Bo'ness United related witty banter, news and views.

    Fair weather fan is right. The @bonessunited twitter account is linked in with the unofficial BU website. The tweet makes it clear that Charlie Adams has signed for the new juniors set up. Sorry for any confusion.

    @nessunitedfc is the Bo'ness United twitter.

    I was checking out Twitter and see that Boness United JUNIORS have signed Charlie Adams ......but it's not the Stoke/Rangers Charlie Adams. Having a twitter name of BonessUnited for the Junior side may confuse.

    Totally agree with you Sheep. Ryan has pace and skill, glides over the pitch and puts in a good shift. I totally accept that he isn't a complete player in the tackling and heading departments but there are other players in the team who can do that. Max recognises what Ryan can bring to the team. Hopefully the rumour that Ryan will sign for the BU's next season is true.

    Well that's that, the season is over. Some players never turned up :- John McCulloch (a new baby) and Callum Scott (total mystery) Some players came, they saw, they didn't conquer and they left:- Gray, El-Zubadai, Sweeney, McMullen, Shirra 1 & Shirra 2, Rintoul and Watt One player I wish had stayed a lot longer was young Tiwi Daramola..........he could have been the next Nicky Walker !! We had 2 brief cameo appearances :-Rhino in goals for 15 minutes v West Calder and the old Nicky Walker as a sub in the EoS League Cup final. Probably more comings and goings than you would ideally want but on the whole we have had a fairly consistent squad this season. Kegs as manager had a record of 18 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats. That win to games played ratio would see a team finish well up the table but it was some poor results that created the murmurings of dissatisfaction on the terraces and in hindsight the 5-0 defeat at Tranent was a painful blessing in disguise. Max Christie then came in and steadied the ship. Several sources at the club commented on the hard training sessions they had to endure when Max arrived and the improved fitness and organisation has shown on the pitch with some good performances and results. Winning the League Cup and finishing 2nd in Conference B are just rewards for a job well done by the BU's. Several of our players have already signed up for next season and hopefully a few more will decide to stay but inevitably some players will call it a day at Bo'ness (Wright, Hunter and Snowdon perhaps) and some may head to clubs closer to home (MacDonald, Prentice and MacKenzie perhaps). Rumours abound that Max has targeted a number of new players for next season and hopefully he can deliver the players to push for more honours next season when the league will be a lot tougher for all concerned. Mon the BU's !!!

    We really missed Gemmell today. A player to sit deep in midfield and give the team a more solid look, a spoiler, a grafter, a master of the dark arts. Too many times today there were big gaps in the BU team and far too many times misplaced passes. Having said that the BU's had chances to score in the first half but didn't take them.......whereas Bonnyrigg did. At 2-1 I fancied us to make a comeback in the 2nd half but the third goal for Bonnyrigg changed that and suddenly all the BU players looked a yard off the pace. The save late in the game by Murphy from the top corner bound curler from Brett was absolutely fantastic. Save of the season stuff. Bottom line is Bonnyrigg deserved their win and our season is over.
