On the ball today Sheep!

Andy was brilliant that day, saving us a point in a goalless draw almost single-handed (sic)

Excellent performance that day

More recent times as we go to 2011 and a Junior Cup 6th Round clash with Bonnyrigg Rose, at Newtown Park.  This was predicted to be a tight game and so it proved until near the break, when on-loan Hamilton centre-back Brian McQueen netted twice.  The Bu's were then on top and Chris McFadyen bagged a brace in the second half.  Final score 4-0.

The team was: Longmuir, Snowdon, Hunter, Duffin, McQueen, Fraser, McLaren (Hamilton), Shirra (Donald), McFadyen, Walker, Plenderleith (Ure)

Close enough.  I have seen his name reported as Cain but the popular version is Caine.

Jambo, how about giving us the top 10 of appearances for the BU's.

Only problem there is that some would be approximates as team-lines not available for a number of games but I'll have a wee look and get back with it soon.
