Newburgh's next fixture

On a break from league duties Newburgh will travel to Moorside Park Cardenden this weekend to play in the East of Scotland Cup against Super League side Dundonald Bluebell.

Scone Thistle v Newburgh match report

Scone Thistle 4 Newburgh 1

Newburgh travelled to Scone hoping to improve on last season’s results against their old rivals having lost both games in last years campaign without even a goal to show for their efforts.
Newburgh’s starting line-up included midweek signing Scott Peletier at right back and Stephan Fortune at centre back in a rearranged back line. In goal for the first time this season was the veteran Alan Seath standing in for Andy Warrender who was unavailable this weekend.
The opening 15 minutes was a turgid affair with neither team able to create anything in the danger areas. Newburgh played some nice football without being able to make much of an impression on the Scone goal.
A Newburgh corner led to the opening goal on the 29th minute. A decent ball was delivered into the box by Anderson which was cleared up field by the Scone defence. The ball was picked up by Scone’s Moffat on the angle of the box and smashed a perfect shot high into the Burgh goal. From a Newburgh attacking corner the ‘Burgh found themselves 1 – 0 down within 10 seconds.
Newburgh lost the experienced Fortune to a thigh strain after 32 minutes. Galloway replaced Fortune with Peletier moving to a central position allowing Galloway to slot in to right back.
This spurred on the home side who began to control the ball well in midfield. A second goal was added to the Scone tally on the 44rd minute when a mistake in the middle of the park gifted the ball to Scone who quickly broke through the Newburgh defence and moved the ball wide to Moffat, The Scone striker doubled his and Scones tally to two with a shot from a very tight angle.
The second half was only 3 minutes old when Newburgh found themselves 3- 0 down with another mistake allowing Fertacz to get behind the Burgh defence to square the ball for Moffat who slotted the ball away for his hat-trick.
Newburgh dug in and grabbed a lifeline on the 58th minute when superb movement by Fowler allowed him to outpace his marker and get in one on one with the keeper. Fowler coolly dragged the ball wide and passed the ball into the empty net.
This good work was again to be outdone when Newburgh’s lack of concentration cost them another goal 3 minutes later. Moffat this time turned provider with his cross finding Sinclair who found the back of the new to restore the three goal advantage for the home side.
Scone once again proved to be a difficult fixture for Newburgh and manager Alan Fortune was disappointed to have given away cheap goals “a few of the lads are just starting to find out hat Junior football is about, mistakes get punished at this level and concentration is paramount. We lost two goals from our own attacking positions today. We didn’t create anything like the chances we have in previous games. We will work hard again during the week and get ready for next weeks challenge in the East of Scotland cup tie”.
Newburgh face the high flying super league side Dundonald Bluebell next weekend at Mooorfield Park Cardenden.
