EoS Conference A chat 2018-19

Given that Vale of Leithen are playing in the level above, it's actually Peebles closest opponent (of any of the clubs - not just this Conference).

There are a few cases like that... Musselburgh are about as close to Leith and Dalkeith as their East Lothian rivals - Ormiston are similarly about as close to several Midlothian clubs as they are to their East Lothian counterparts. Broxburn are as near to Heriot-Watt as their West Lothian comrades.

Peebles v Penicuik looks like a cracker first up.

 

Local derby of sorts.

Stroll in the park for Penicuik.

Might well be.  Still it’s a game I didn’t think I would ever see happen because of the bizarre non league set up in this country.

Peebles took a 2-0 lead against league favourites Penicuik. Eventually Penicuik scored six though.

Fair play to Arniston as well, bounced back from a horrendous start to the season with two league wins.

Easthouses v Hawick, the first match in Conference A for both sides tonight. Any thoughts? What should we expect from Hawick after being relegated from the LL, and technically being the top seed along the pre-existing seniors in the league? Should they be expected to beat a team that was in the bottom half of the bottom division in the ERSJFA last season?

More importantly, 7.30pm kick off... they do have floodlights, then?

They do, installed shortly before they switched to Juniors.

Indeed bizarre as it sounds Hawick, even after tonight, will have played as many competitive league games under them as Easthouses - having been told to rearrange a game v Burntisland there, postponed in odd circumstances just before Lily switched grades, to avoid the Fifers having to take a longer trip midweek. Same for Burntisland who visited LTHV there last season. They've apparently rarely played under them in anger until now though there was a Fife & Lothians Cup tie v Bonnyrigg on a Friday last campaign, IIRC.

EDIT: Apparently this is their 4th competitive game under them in 5 seasons, the previous having been:
* Easthouses v Heriot-Watt Uni in King Cup (March 2015)
* Easthouses v Craigroyston in EOS Premier (May 2015)
* Easthouses v Bonnyrigg in Fife & Lothians Junior Cup (October 2017)


Very neat venue all round at Newbattle these days... New dressing rooms and pavilion inside the ground, floodlights, dinky grandstand and the hedging has grown up to properly enclose it all.

Ta for that info HJ, always interesting and appreciated.

Crowd of 92 and Easthouses lead 1-0 with a goal just before half time. The home side have had the better of it and would've been further ahead but for two good saves. Lily's big number 6 is the best player, cutting in from right midfield and causing problems. Nearly everything Easthouses have done has gone down the right.

I can't imagine a better ground for crowds up to 300 or so, the grass slope gives good elevated views without being too steep and the stand is excellent. IMG_20180822_192402155.jpgIMG_20180822_193008509_HDR.jpg

Hawick's keeper has an incredibly deep voice. While he was setting up for a corner I could feel my ovaries twitching; to the best of my knowledge I don't even have ovaries.

Finished 1-0 to Easthouses, Hawick came back into, especially after Lily's manager made the mistake of moving their best player out of midfield and stuck him up front. They peppered the goal late on and hit the bar, but no joy.

Main lesson for me, having not brought a jacket, is that summer is over.

Easthouses Lily 1-0 Hawick Royal Albert

Newbattle Complex - not a psychological condition - was looking resplendent and also boasts green mesh along the railings, a tannoy and new 'warpaint' with the signage renewed to now say "Easthouses Lily MWFC", plus the EOSFA & FL logos. There was a good crowd in - including bairns and committee I'd actually made it 102 around the hour mark - and a pretty sunset over the Pentlands for this game played by devils candles. Over the 90 min Easthouses perhaps deserved a narrow win but Hawick should actually have levelled then won it late on: missing a sitter, screwing 2 good chances wide, hitting the bar from long range and having a header from a corner cleared off the line.

Game "ebbed & flowed" with Hawick on-top early on, missing 2 opportunities after springing Lily's offside trap; then an end-to-end spell; but Easthouses took a tightening grip approaching HT, hit the side netting and forced a good snap save. They took the lead just before the break when a cut-back from the right was clipped in from close range. Second half it was the homesters dominating until the hour, forcing the odd routine stop, but after another patch of to & fro the game finished with Albert camped in the final third almost to the close - however to no avail. In a particularly open conference for top 5 places, on the night they lacked just a touch of quality, strength and composure over the duration compared to their hosts.

Ah, I took my count after about 40 minutes. Yours will likely be more relevant - do you want to tell the attendance numbers dude or shall I?
