Season 2017 – 18 thanks to all

With season 2018 18 drawing to a close last night the committee at Newburgh Juniors would like to thank everyone who has helped us along the way.
To our management and players – Thank you all for your efforts throughout the year. Without a team on the park there would be no Newburgh Juniors. The management current and past should all be proud of the fact that week in week out we have managed to field a competitive team.
To our sponsors – Every sponsor is appreciated immensely by the club. We are honored to have been associated this season with some fantastic people and companies who have sponsored, match balls, games, race nights, pitch side boards and team kit to name a few things.
To our fans – The team on the park is your team and we really love seeing the spectators come through the gate for every game. Your support is appreciated throughout the club and on the park, we look forward to welcoming you all back next season.
To the people of Newburgh – The support we have received this year in the town is humbling. Thank you all for supporting our fundraisers, buying our lotto tickets every week and for showing an interest in your local football team.
We look forward to season 2018-19 which will be upon us in no time at all. Scott and his coaching team have been working extremely hard already to ensure that there is a full squad available for pre-season and that the team will be even more competitive next season.
We will be working hard behind the scenes as well to improve the facilities at East Shore Park throughout the Summer.
Thanks again – see you in season 18–19!

Newburgh v Lochore Welfare match report

Newburgh 1 Lochore Welfare 2
Newburgh’s 18-19 season drew to a close on Wednesday night with a league fixture against Lochore Welfare. With Lochore moving to the South league in the new East Region format next season this may be the last game between the two rivals for some time.
Scott Hudson added a pair of triallists to his line up as he continues to look at new players for next season.
On a beautiful evening with a pitch made for playing expansive football Lochore flew out of the blocks and pressed Newburgh back in the opening minutes of the game. With a speedy front line they were looking to get in behind the ‘Burgh defence with probing long balls over the top causing the home defence problems.
Lochore opened the scoring 13 minutes into the game. The ‘Burgh defence didn’t deal with a diagonal ball allowing Doig to pick up the ball with just Warrender to beat from an angle. The Lochore striker somehow managed to squeeze the ball in past the keeper from a tight angle to give Lochore the advantage.
For WP (7)
Newburgh were rocked by the goal and the second followed just 3 minutes later with a driving run from the left by the lively left winger Robertson ending with a well taken goal for the youngster.
Newburgh picked themselves up from the early set back and stamped themselves on the game from the middle of the half onwards. Gay and Reilly were combining well in the middle of the park with Sean MacBride and Fraser pushing further up the park stopping the Lochore wide men from getting the ball in dangerous areas.
For WP (9)
The second half started with Newburgh shuffling their formation, John Miller was replaced by Kyle Meaney. The change paid off almost immediately with Newburgh pulling a goal back from an early corner.
The ball broke out of the box to Kurtis McKenzie who smashed a shot off the defender, the ball broke back to McKenzie who drove another shot towards goal. The Lochore keeper made a good save but couldn’t hold the ball which once more broke to McKenzie who this time made no mistake heading the ball over the keeper to give Newburgh a foot hold in the game.
For WP (1)
The second half was a far better half for Newburgh with the new formation giving the midfield more time and space to create chances. There were chances at both ends over the course of the half but neither team managed to profit from their endeavors with the game ending and Lochore taking all 3 points.
For WP (2)
Scott Hudson, Newburgh manager, was happier with the second half performance “we realised at half time that we needed to make a change as Lochore were well on top in the first. The second half formation gave us scope to push forward and put Lochore under pressure. The early goal was exactly what we were looking for and I thought that if we could have bagged another goal we would have gone on to win the game”.
Newburgh would like to thank all of our sponsors and everyone who has attended our games supporting the team over the course of the season.
Newburgh: Warrender, S MacBride, Fraser (Foy 77), P MacBride, Miller (Meaney 45), Highley, Reilly, Gay, McKenzie, Connolly, Kennedy (Gibson 80)

Coaching opportunity at Newburgh

As we close this season off we are already building for season 2018-19.
Newburgh Juniors are looking to add a goalkeeping coach to our backroom staff.

This position would suit an established coach or a goalkeeper looking to take their first steps into a coaching role.

Interested parties should in the first instance contact us by email:

It's the end of the season and league as we know it..

This Wednesday evening will bring the curtain down on a long hard season when Newburgh face our friends from Lochore Welfare in what will be the last ever East Region North league fixture.
With a number of teams deciding thatthe time is right for them to leave the Junior footballing ranks there is uncertainty over the future league structure for season 2018-19.
The only certainty is that there will have to be a restructure to accommodate the teams who remain as a part of the Junior football structure in the East of Scotland. A meeting is being held on the 22nd of May to discuss how the leagues will be structured next season.
It is possibly the last time that we will face Lochore in a league game as the border for the region will most likely split the Fife based team to the North and South,
So why not come down to East Shore Park this Wednesday evening to give the two teams your support. We have arranged the weather and the park is looking superb. The game kicks off at 7:15pm with the gates opening at 6:30pm.
