This was our first attempt at filming our games. As you will see we are in the very early stages of our journey to filming and publishing the videos of our games.
If anyone can offer any help with the filming/editing of the games please get in touch as we are mere novices..
We have been working hard to improve our media department at the club and we are now in the VERY EARLY stages of recording and publishing games. As you will see from the following video we are novices… If anyone out there is a dab hand at recording (we have a camera) or editing videos and would like to help please get in touch as we would be delighted to accept any assistance that is on offer. Anyway enough pre-amble. Newburgh v Scone Thistle in the rawest of forms….
The videos are in order from the start to the end of the game (I hope)
Prior to the first game of pre-season this weekend Scott Hudson and his coaching team are delighted to have completed the signing of several players. These signings add to the current squad who signed up from last season.
Joining Newburgh for season 2019 – 20
Ben Scarborough – A product of the successful partnership with Abernethy Under 19’s Ben joins Newburgh this season. Ben is s tidy left back with a mean left foot delivery from the wide areas.
Aidan Edward – Aidan played for Abernethy U19’s last season and guested for Newburgh several times towards the end of the season. He fitted in well and will be a great addition to Newburgh’s midfield.
Sam Kirkham – Sam missed last season through injury having had a superb season the year before with the successful Strathmiglo Utd side. A tall athletic centre back Sam will be a great addition to the squad.
Fraser Crossley – Fraser played for Newburgh a few season ago before stepping into the amateur leagues with several sides in Fife. Fraser is a strong left footed centre back with a cool head in defence.
Jordan Annandale – Jordan impressed against Newburgh in a pre-season friendly last season playing for Bridge of Earn. Jordan is a quick winger and a player the management team have had their eye on for some time.
Gordon McKinnon – Gordon played with Cupar Hearts last season and suffered an injury early in the year that put him out for the season. Back to full fitness and with a good pre-season behind him Gordon will add strength to the ‘Burgh midfield
Jamie Gay – Jamie played part of the last 2 seasons at Newburgh and returns to our squad this season. A quick forward with an eye for goal we look forward to seeing Jamie play at East Shore Park again this season
Kurtis McKenzie – Kurtis is another player returning to East Shore Park having played for us in the two previous seasons before moving on. Kurtis is a quick, intelligent midfielder with height and pace in abundance.
Newburgh look forward to getting our pre-season fixtures underway this Saturday when we welcome Lumphinans United to East Shore Park.
Lumphinans play in the Kingdom of Fife Premiership and will prove a tough test for the Newburgh squad in the first of our pre-season fixtures.
The first week of fixtures for the new season have been released by the fixture secretary. The whole season of fixtures will be released shortly once the East Of Scotland league publish their fixture list. This is to allow ground sharing considerations to be given to the clubs in both leagues.
Newburgh are delighted to host one of the four new teams to enter the league this season, Syngenta, in their first fixture within the East region of Scottish Junior football.
After a short break the squad are back at it already with pre-season training underway as of Tuesday the 18th of June.
The squad are assembled and were hard at it last night at East Shore Park with the management team putting them through their paces. Our pre-season schedule of matches starts on the 6th of July with some really testing fixtures to get the lads up to match fitness for the start of the season
The club AGM is scheduled for 7pm next Tuesday, the 25th of June, at the pavilion. We would like to encourage anyone with an interest in joining the committee or giving us a help out at the club to come down for the AGM. Everyone is welcome we can never have too many volunteers!
The Scottish Junior FA and East Region JFA AGM’s took place over the last week. It is really encouraging to hear the work that is going on in the background and everyone at Newburgh is delighted to hear that we will have 4 new teams joining our league next season.
Newburgh will once again take part in the South Premier league. This will be a 10 team league with Newburgh competing against, West Calder United, Stoneyburn, Kirkcaldy & Dysart (formerly Kirkcaldy YM), Lochgelly Albert and Rosyth. Also joining us in the South Premier league will be the new teams, Bo’ness United, Linlithgow Rose CFC, Sauchie and Syngenta.
We will play against each team 3 times with the 3rd fixture being drawn either home or away. This gives us a minimum of 13 home league fixtures (possibly 14 depending on draw) to look forward to at East Shore Park this season.
The four new teams are stepping into the Junior set up for the first time and everyone at Newburgh wishes them well. We look forward to visiting them and welcoming them to East Shore Park as the season progresses.
We expect to have a full league fixture list released soon. This is welcomed as a really progressive step offering us the ability to forward plan for the season ahead.
We will also compete in the Scottish Junior Cup, the D J Laing East Region Cup, the Thorntons League cup and the SMT VTech Fife & Lothians cup.
In the first round of the D J Laing East Region cup we have been drawn away to Sauchie. The winners of this tie will then play a home tie in round two against Stoneyburn Juniors.
We look forward to the season ahead at East Shore Park,
