I do hope Blackburn stay up.  Going to be a struggle but think they may just have enough but it will be close.  

If they do and keep their squad fairly intact I can see them being a mid table side over the next couple of years as their younger players develop.

We'll be giving it our best shot.  The Premier is a quality league, and a tough environment for younger players when you need to fill gaps to cover injury/absence.

Long way to go yet.

Noticed a lot of changes form the team that played at Newtown

We didn't, and since the win at Newtown we've not been able to field the same defence two games in a row far less a settled team, and have had to rely on U20 players.
We started with three 18 years olds, a 19 year old and a 20 year old, with an 18 and 19 year old on the bench.  It's just where we are at the moment.
Bo'ness played well, but the fans don't half moan a lot!

Bo'ness were excellent yesterday, Blackburn struggled to land a glove. By my reckoning there were only 5 that started for Blackburn yesterday that started at Newtown and only 1 player who started yesterday in the same starting position.  That's a lot of change for any team to accommodate let alone one relying on U20s. Anyway, regardless, it's a brilliant league to be involved in.

Whitehill Welfare win games in hand; Blackburn win their game in hand (up to 18 matches) then Blackburn go to 3rd bottom!
There are so many matches involved directly with the 7 teams who come into relegation danger:
Whitehill, Blackburn, Sauchie, Newtongrange, Dunbar, Musselburgh + Crossgates.
Supporters of the 7 sides could make reasons why their side could stay up or might be relegated. With a minimum of 12 matches (40% of fixtures), still to play for the 7; it is far too early to say who will still be playing in Premier League next season.

This has been the best thing about our league this season. So competitive and lots to play for right across the board.

It's in our DNA. 

The moaning at refs and linos starts early on and is counterproductive in terms of 50/50 decisions - it also lasts nearly the whole game and even at 4-0 up we dispute a throw in decision when the game is safely won

Hi,

Can anyone provide information on a George Millar who played for Bo’ness United in the early 50’s?

He signed for Falkirk in 1951 and after two seasons at Brockville moved on to Alloa Athletic.

Any information would be much appreciated.

No game this weekend

I really do not like free weeks though it might do the players good. The 25th seems like ages away.

BU Juniors 1; Sauchie Juniors 0 at halftime. The BU juniors featuring Darren Gribben look like they have replaced several of their wee players with some bigger lads. They are playing better than I have seen them in previous games.
