Not sure on the exact dates - But Bo'ness often played in a lower division to ourselves for a good number of years - so not really that unusual.  Although technically there is a Derby Match tomorrow  at Prestonfield with the Linlithgow Over 35's versus Bo'ness Over 35's in Aid of our respective Gala Days.  

Linlithgow won't be looking past Saturday's game just yet, Musselburgh have caused us a few upsets in recent times.

You just don’t know when to grow up.  However, there’s a good few people in your age group of 5-9 year olds could show you.

You sure about that? If you had said his nursery school class I might have believed you!

Woah, you took that bait far too easily. Linlithgow are the wee rose, Bo'ness Fair is a gala day, these are the perennial fish-food of these pages. Best to let them go.

Out of interest - when was there last a season without a Linlithgow-Bo'ness derby?

It could only happen in the cups this season and the chances narrowed with Linlithgow finishing bottom of their EOSQL section, getting pasted at home to Dunbar in their first EOS Qualifying Cup tie and Bo'ness exiting the South Challenge Cup at EK in September. This cup has been the "last chance" since then.

Tall order for both to win their QFs on Saturday but eminently possible.

Unlike a certain reply, here is a sensible one.  The only recorded season there has not been a competitive match between the two was 1974/75 with Bo'ness bouncing back to the top division at the end of that season.

Interestingly, there were no matches for 4 seasons after the BU's entered the league, as Linlithgow had neither the finance or fan interest after the war to compete.

Much of their support go back to hiding in their bunkers when a couple of results don’t go their way.

Thanks. I'd guessed it was unlikely given there used to be numerous local cups back-in-the-day. So we'll see tomorrow if 2018-19 joins 1974-75.

7-3 Rooster's 4th

Rose probably need to win this cup to salvage a disappointing season by their standards. Bonnyrigg be a tough match on 29th. Tranent vs Crossgates other semi final on friday

7 scored and 2 more disallowed for offside and good many more chances missed. A lot could be attributed to Mussy's defence though. It's as though they'd never played together before. 

They scored 3 though and also had 2 chalked off for offside. It's just as well that Musselburgh were generous in defence. 

Good value seeing the ball in the net 14 times in a game! Special word for Ruari with 4.

Although the Rose won by 4 goals, I don’t think the match was a comfortable as the score suggests. 

Sometimes there are small margins in football! Burgh Shoot and ball just goes wide. Linlithgow go up field as 60 secs later it is 4-2! Then, we have a shot, which looks like it is going in, defender gets a good block. Then Rose go up field and Coyle gets goal for 5-2. On another day, our two chances go in and different completion on match.

Before all that, a goal conceded in 2 minutes did Burgh no favours. Then, you are right with your second goal.  Ball comes to our centre half, who,  instead of clearing ball, tries to be clever and gifts Rose the goal. 

Ruari was best player on the field. Not just for his 4 goals. I thought his play throughout the match was brilliant!

I agree with what you say. When you pulled it back to 2 each I feared the worst as your boys seemed up for it but then we started taking the chances we'd been missing in the first half and seemed to score at will. Musselburgh were dangerous up front but woeful at the back.
