Broxburn 2-3 Jeanfield Swifts. Proverbial game of 2 halves this one. Jeanfield were totally in control in the 1st half and well worth their 3-0 lead at half time. Broxburn just we’re not at the races in the first half. Second half however Broxburn were like a different team and can consider themselves unfortunate not to have got something from the game with Jeanfield keeper making a couple of good saves. One of best pies I have in a while as well.

Glasgow City 0-1 Celtic Women at Firhill this afternoon. 

Celtic win the SWPL Cup but it was in truth a poor game. Celtic took the lead after 25 minutes and then for some reason decided to sit on it. It only worked out for them because City were extremely wasteful. Not a great final for the 3,645 in attendance but definitely worse ways to spend an early Sunday evening.

Didn't take any photos, but I was at the Hibs match vs Motherwell on Saturday. Not all that random, but a mate had a spare ticket and I was curious to how the other half lived.

A good game by all accounts and Hibs probably should've won it in the second half, but Motherwell had chances too. Absolutely baltic day in the capital, I'd say about 12k at the game but the official attendance was given as 15k, to which even some Hibbies around me sniggered when the announcement came over the tannoy.

Quite surreal going to a game like that which didn't involve my team, but still with the home comforts of knowing exactly how to navigate, and where to drink pre and post match.

Have to confess though, I still enjoyed my trip to Livingston on Sunday even more. :)

A diversion on way home to take in 30 minutes of Linton Hotspur v Longniddry Villa. The visitors took the lead with what I believe is called a "rocket" just as I was leaving.

Sadly the combination of pouring rain and my wee boy deciding to dress himself for the day in shorts led to a swift retreat to the warmth of home. Wee softie.

With Lochee United called off, I went to Letham 0-4 Arbroath Victoria. First half was fairly close, with Arbroath Vics scoring late on. The second half was one way traffic. The Letham goalkeeper made a number of excellent saves, but once Vics did score, they were always going on to score another few.

Ground isn't great, but also no worse than the likes of Leith and Rosyth. That makes it weird that the EOS rejected them. Someone I spoke to said that he reckoned they did that to not have another Perth side for travelling reasons. They are happy in the Midlands League now though and don't want to move now.

Edinburgh Uni 1-0 Gretna. Was either this or Christmas shopping. Actually turned out to be a decent game with both sides playing some good football at times. Home baking was as good as ever.

CFR 1-0 Mioveni.

A decent game. Cluj easily the better team although Mioveni came back into it in the last ten minutes and an equaliser wouldn't have been a disservice.

Very disappointing attendance, maybe 2,000 to see the best side in the country in a city of 300,000. A ticket was about the price of a craft beer in one of the local bars.

Cracking stadium though. I'm not sure how often they fill it but it should hold an amazing atmosphere. There was a brief powercut in the first half and the scoreboard needed to reboot. 5b3140a10617cb47790a45d26b6d348f.jpgb0ad7face0e93f8035ae2474b2abc39a.jpg6b1fa140e1e0792290f2d72835fda709.jpg

Current regulations in Bavaria meant that H96's game in Ingolstadt was behind closed doors. Work colleague is a member at SV Hamburg so was able get tickets via him for myself and a Rostock supporting mate for yestaerdays game at the Imtech Arena / Volksparkstadion.

Just 15.000 allowed, with 750 away fans in the official away end, must have been at least another 1.000 in the blocks next to the away section. All nice and friendly, no animosity between Hamburg & Rostock unlike the relationship between St. Pauli & Rostock.

Interesting enough game from a 'neutral' (was glad to see Rostock go home pointless) point of view, with Hamburg running out well deserved 3-0 winners.

Not very random these days but rather than sit in the house headed to Edinburgh City 0v4 Forfar. Forfar were as comfortable winners as the score suggests. Poorest I have seen City play this season. Forfar look a decent side who might yet run Kelty close.

West Linton? I stayed just down the road from there when I worked in Peebles. Still hoping to get to one of their games and the Rovers at some point.

West Linton it is. That's where I'm exiled to.

The ground is newish, just outside town, on the Deanfoot Road heading out over the moor towards Penicuik. A nice setting, excellent pies in the clubhouse and a fridge full of beers (for a donation to club funds!). Small wee club, building very slowly and carefully, doing well to grow given the fairly rural catchment.

Peebles Rovers have a stunning setting, a wonderful stand, but few of the mod cons of Linton Hotspur.

Both are fantastic places to go for a game. You'll not be disappointed if you go to either.

Yeah I have been to the Gytes for runs and games with the school team before but due to my stay there coinciding with lockdown, I never managed a game. It's high on the list next time I get down for a weekend.
