Broxburn blew it. Two up against ten men at HT. Just keep the ball and use the extra man. They didn't do enough in the second half.

Congratulations to Bonnyrigg. What a comeback. Fully deserved and here's hoping they get their licence and promotion. They'll be worthy contenders in the Lowland League.

I'm spending more time looking at my phone than watching my team here.

Well at least you've got another 30 minutes to watch. Mind you that's because your mob so far ballsed up a two goal lead with a couple of minutes to go

Big hairy balls of steel from Bonnyrigg there. It'll take a while for Broxburn to get over it, but what a season they've had. And the title decided by the match of the season. Good times.

Congrats to Bonnyrigg, and good luck to them on the licensing front. It's sad that there's still that uncertainty hanging over them and everyone else on that issue.

Hard lines Broxburn. They must be absolutely gutted. Congrats Bonnyrigg, hopefully they'll be in the LL next year.

Three cheers for the boys who organise the EoSFL. The triple conference bedding in season has delivered the goods.

All hail the EoSFL.

It has been a fantastic season, managed superbly from start to finish.

For me, having seen all 3 sides, the best team has come out champions. I thought Bonnyrigg were outstanding and will be real contenders in the Lowland League next year, pending the SFA getting their fingers out their collective arses.

Sounds like a perfect game to finishing the season as well.

Mind last season when I said you'd be hard pressed to beat the drama of the LTHV v Kelty and Kelty v LTHV games :lol:?!




What can you say about today.

In years or decades hence there will be an exciting last day decider, and some youngsters will say "there can never have been a match like this in all of history!": but some old timers will lean over and say "lads, let us tell you about 2019 - it happened like this, you see, first of all"... yet they will not believe them. Men will say such things cannot be real. Only those hundreds of us who were present - who saw the league title oscillate 5 times between 3 clubs in 1 football game and a team fight back from 2-0 down with 10-men to win that league title - will be able to say "I was there: I saw these things come to pass".

Incredible.

Well done to Bonnyrigg. They've been the strongest side throughout the season and deserve to be the champions.  Today was an incredible comeback with 9 and a half men, as Horne was effectively a passenger after getting injured shortly after Bonnyrigg had committed all three substitutes. 

What a great advert for the league and the play-off format.  The quality of the football wasn't always there, but the emotional rollercoaster for all three teams was evident throughout.

At the start it was advantage Bonnyrigg, then, as each goal went in,  it was Penicuik, Broxburn, back to Penicuik then finally back where it started with Bonnyrigg. Even the injury time winner came from a Broxburn free kick as they sent everyone forward in search of a winner, including the keeper, leaving no-one back to defend the empty goal when Bonnyrigg cleared the ball.

Spot on Hibee. I'm mentally drained and I don't even support either team!!

Do you think we should keep the conferences and playoffs folks:)
