  1. Musselburgh Athletic F.C 2018/19

    Liam Gregory is the second Musselburgh Athletic Under 20 player to sign for the main Burgh team. He is a midfielder, quick on his feet and getting more confident each time he crosses the line on a Saturday afternoon. He joins the Centre Half Liam Reid, who signed a couple of months ago and now a regular in the first team starting line up.
  2. Musselburgh Athletic F.C 2018/19

    League match 17 for Musselburgh; first match in four weeks. Newtongrange were the visitors to Olivebank, hoping for a double, having already beaten Musselburgh 4-2 in the league a couple of months back. Two changes to the last Burgh line up with Grieg Callaghan on for an injured Liam Gregory. Nathan Evans replaced Gary Cherrie’s who was suspended. Match start in a quick tempo with both teams looking to be on the score sheet first. On 13 minutes, Conor Thomson moved ball into the Newtongrange box. Best option was to shoot, but instead, Conor passed ball to Michael Deland, who saw his shot go over bar. On 15 minutes, the first goal did come. Passing move involving Jackie Myles, Conor and Nathan saw the latter make run into the box. Nathan checked back and squares ball into the six-yard box, where Mathu King hits the net. Early honours to Musselburgh who lead 1-0. On 19 minutes, Stevie Thomson (seven previous Burgh players – maybe 8 - in the Nitten starting line-up) hit a shot from 25 yards, but ball just goes over the bar. Few moments later and a throw-in from Scott Swaney finds Thomson, who has a tussle with Michael D, before crossing a good ball in, but, no Newtongrange player could get a touch on it. Jackie has a great chance to make it 2-0 to Burgh with 40 minutes played, but his strike comes off the back of a Nitten player and ball is cleared. In final minute of first half, good play up right wing between Conor and Mathu, with ball played over to Liam Gregory. He plays ball into box, which Nathan dummied and Mathu ran towards the far corner of box and placed ball past a diving Keiron Renton. Half time – Musselburgh lead 2-0 Just over 10 minutes after the break, Deland punted ball from his own half, which headed on by Mathu. Nathan collects ball at edge of box, then coolly slots ball into the net for 3-0 lead. Nitten were reduced to 10 men as Thomson received a red card for a reckless challenge on Jackie Myles. Fortunes changed a bit, for Newtongrange, on 61 minutes. From a corner kick, ball headed into net by Lowson, reducing deficit to 3-1. Third goal in eleven minutes saw Musselburgh back to a three-goal lead. Renton kicked ball into the Burgh half. Two headers and ball was back over the half way line. Lowson passed ball back to Keiron. Inexplicably, Renton let the ball run by him towards the goals. He ran back to retrieve the ball, but linesman indicated that ball crossed line and Musselburgh lead 4-1. Keiron received a yellow card for running out and remonstrating with the linesman; stating ball was still in play, a fact confirmed by a number of Burgh fans who were standing behind the goal area. Nitten were not finished yet, as in 69 minutes, they had another corner. When ball came in, Ally shouted it was his ball. However, he missed it and Richardson tapped ball in - 4-2 to the home side. Burgh’s first sub came just after. Scott McNaughton replaced Nathan. Final goal came in 75 minutes. Mathu ran into box, looking for his hat trick. As he tried to go by Keiron, he was fouled and the goalkeeper received his second yellow of the match. Richardson went in goals, but was unable to stop Michael Moffat from scoring his second penalty in as many matches. Jack Gillan and Scott Moffat replaced Jackie and Conor, late in the match for Musselburgh. For the away side, Scott, Wilson and Lander replace Hunter, Forster and Jamieson. Final score was 5-2 for Musselburgh who jump above Newtongrange, into third place in the league. Michael Moffat (birthday boy) was supporters’ man of the match. A crowd of 314; third highest of season for Musselburgh, saw an entertaining match, especially in the first half. Second half was a bit spoilt by the two sending offs. However, five goals in this period is not to be scoffed at; with Musselburgh worthy winners.
  3. Linlithgow Rose 18/19

    Ha ha; you are having to do a lot of defensive returns tonight and not just from my comments. Not craving attention for anything, and when you try to be smart, be consistent! Your last paragraph talks about when we’re the cup defeats/draws, being in the past, dissing my thoughts. However, you write about being seeded in this year’s league -based on where your your team finished last season. Even a longer period before your cup debacles! Third para - I mentioned Linlithgow finishing 4th in conference C because of your ‘probable’ thought of being 4th best in EoSL. Wouldn’t have mentioned it at all. We can wait till end of season to see where your team finish in the league. Not sure what you mean about did I notice the word probable? Yes I did notice, as you wrote it and so. I quoted it based on that, so the answer would be yes?! I’m not going to wait on your comment, but will call again and have a look tomorrow.
  4. Linlithgow Rose 18/19

    Debate time. I know thoughts of individuals on P&B are just opinions and sometimes no one can positively argue about these, However, I sometimes laugh with comments like ‘Probably the fourth best team in the EoSFL’, cause you have no chance to test this, this season. Linlithgow are in a 13 team league, so you will not meet the other 26 teams home and away. Maybe if Linlithgow were invincible in cup competitions, your thought may have held more power. Yes Linlithgow have won majority of matches this season. But, in the league, you have won/lost against both Broxburn and Cameron and drawn against Ormiston. Your team still to play Jeanfield home/away and it is feasible Linlithgow could lose both of these. If so, your team may only be fourth best team in Conference C. In cup competitions, Linlithgow have been beaten by Dunbar and Sauchie, while drawing with Crossgates and Penicuik - hardly credentials of 4th best out of 39.
  5. Linlithgow Rose 18/19

    Have there not been supporters of Linlithgow on here complaining of too many meaningless matches in the league this season? 3-3 draw not the end of the world, but some need to bring their thoughts and expectations down a little bit.
  6. Musselburgh Athletic F.C 2018/19

    A win today will probably cement 3rd place in the league come end of season for Musselburgh. Even if Nitten get a result today, Burgh will be confident they can overhaul their rivals in the last remaining matches. Looking forward to a good match.
  7. EoS Conference A chat 2018-19

    Crunch matches in conference A. Top side Penicuik at home to 2nd placed Hill of Beath while Musselburgh meet Newtongrange at Olivebank as 4th play 3rd. Either match worthy of big supports!

    are you going to make a rare appearance at Olivebank today Bryce? Your team against mine?
  9. EOSFL match attendances 2018/19

    Seems to be one of two stock answers you keep on having to provide. Sometimes you wish it would stick in people’s minds! At least your next poster agreed with the crowd number you gave!
  10. EoS Conference A chat 2018-19

    No matter what the result of Musselburgh v Newtongrange - the title rests with either Penicuik or Hill of Beath. My money would be on Hill of Beath, but the winner of their match on Saturday would be favourites from that point onward. Musselburgh and Nitten to finish 3rd and 4th with Dunbar to finish 5th. Coldstream do have a number of matches in hand but they still have to play 3 out of top 4 at least once.
  11. EoS Conference A chat 2018-19

    Looking at upcoming league matches, Leith and Arniston complete their league campaigns on 30 March, while teams like Penicuik, Hill of Beath and Musselburgh still have four league matches left.

    With points already on the board, I don’t think the top 5 will change come end of season. Questions remain about who finishes in 6th place.
  13. EoS Conference B chat 2018-19

    Think the reality is that the top 4 is assured as is. Teams from Crossgates down to Haddington are competing for 5th place come end of season.

    Cup is heading to Dundee this year. Just a pity about 3 away ties out of 4 to get to the final, but the travelling will be worth it!
  15. Musselburgh Athletic F.C 2018/19

    Two weekends in a row without football. Hope it’s not a hat trick and match at Peebles goes ahead! Miss my fix of watching the Burgh play!
