Title Round Robin 'hood

Recommended Posts

I remember a game at Bo'ness, where the home side needed a victory, to win the league. Opponents, Hill o' Beath could win the league if they won, and I was standing in the crowd, amongst some Whitburn fans, who were hoping for a draw so that THEY could win the league! 
Bo'ness beat Sauchie 4-3 that day, one of the best days following Bo'ness I've ever had. I remember the Whitburn players going daft when Sauchie equalised late on only for us to score with an attack straight from the restart! Someone filmed it from the stand, noone seems to know who and the highlights have never surfaced.

In the low hundreds I would reckon. Hopefully a bit of success can start bringing in new fans though, there's potential here at Broxburn

Surprised you think that. I was at the match v linlithgow earlier in the season and the crowd was not far short 500.

I suppose it depends how many were away fans and/or neutral. There were 484 fans at Broxburn v Linlithgow and 220 at Broxburn v Camelon (in Alex Jack Cup); on the flipside all their other games were sub-200. Then again Penicuik's league average was 217 - but their crowd on Saturday was 454 (i.e. 2 times higher); and Bonnyrigg's league average was 319 - but their crowd last night was 1,012 (i.e. 3 times higher); by that basis you'd expect a big bounce on Broxburn's league average of 163.

No doubt it's huge for the Broxburn faithful, there will be a big away turnout, and plenty neutrals.

Big day for Broxburn tomorrow - don’t think too many would have picked them as Conference winners.  Win by 2 goals tomorrow sounds so simple but their biggest test of the season awaits in the shape of League favourites Bonnyrigg. Hope it’s a good game and they get a decent turnout.

At the risk of a backlash, the plastic pitch will be a big leveller.

If Broxburn show the same as they did in the last 10 minutes against us then it will be an interesting game.

Good luck 'burn

Going to agree with Specky (for once) about the pitch being a leveller. Hopefully it's an exciting match for all . Bonnyrigg will be favourites for a win/draw but I get a sneaky feeling Broxburn will do the business.

And Broxburn score from the free kick. As I said game on.

A real shame about the red card. Bonnyrigg have been great the past few seasons, and to get a red card early in the deciding match is really tough. But at least Broxburn can't afford to rest on their laurels.

Broxburn two up. An absolute beauty from their number 7.

2.30 Bonnyrigg going up.
3.04 Penicuik going up.
3.10 Broxburn going up.

The Penicuik fans will be praying for a Bonnyrigg goal.
They are, though some don't understand why. It's maths class in Midlothian.

Broxburn probably the least favourite from the three to go up (well deserved if they do though)! Scenes if it goes to the end like that........

2-0 at HT. Bonnyrigg's dominated the first 15 mins without creating a chance. Broxburn then came into it. My first thought is the sending off was harsh. Then it became double jeopardy when Broxburn scored from the resulting free kick.

Have to say the second goal was worthy of the occasion.

A fascinating second half ahead.

Just overhead a disgruntled Bonnyrigg fan say "we should score a goal and send Penicuik up". Lol.
