March 4th

This day takes us back to 1972 and a season where the BU's did not draw any league matches.  It was the turn of Bonnybridge to visit Newtown and they were soundly beaten 5-0, courtesy of a hat-trick by Dave McOwat.  The scoring was completed by Andy Noblett and an own goal.

The side that won was: Anderson, Oliver, McQueen, Simpson, Frew, Zelman, Sinclair, Millar, Noblett, McGregor, McOwat sub E Logan

A relatively recent flashback to 2011 today and a 5th round Junior Cup tie at old opponents Petershill.  This was played on their artificial surface at Petershill Park, which opened in 2007.  Not surprisingly, it was a close game, with the home team striking the post twice but a Will Snowdon angled drive in the 15th minute settled the tie.

The team was: Longmuir, Snowdon, Hunter, Forrest, McQueen, Fraser, McLaren (Donnelly) (Ballantine) (Hamilton), Shirra, McFadyen, Plenderleith, Walker and yes, the first two subs were subbed because of injury!

On this day in 2005, The BU's travelled to Musselburgh in the Brown Cup.  Their side contained 3 players who were to sign for the BU's at the end of the season.  Name them?

Back to 1965 now and a local match with a difference.  Grangemouth United had no ground of their own, so switched their home fixture to Newtown Park.  They will have had second thoughts after being trounced 7-3.  The opposition that day contained five former BU players!  The BU team was:  Preston, Trialist, Young, Bellamy, Chambers, Sneddon, Bone, Buchan, Meikle, Craig, McManus.

Undoubted man of the match was Bobby Buchan, who netted his first hat-trick for the club, before later heading an own goal!  The others came from Frankie Craig, Archie Meikle, Joe Young & Allan McManus.  Archie's goal was disputed, until it was discovered there was a hole in the net!

A tester for today.  As mentioned above, Grangemouth featured 5 ex BU players in their ranks that day.  Can you name them?

No takers for what, I appreciate is one for the older fans.

I will give some clues.  One has a surname very similar to that of a Junior club in the west.  Two have surnames that were found on last season's team sheet (one of those is still with us).
