Newburgh 1 Forfar Albion 1

Newburgh’s long and fragmented season drew to a close last night at East Shore park with a hard fought draw against Forfar Albion.

Newburgh fielded a variety of new faces as the management team ran their eye over possible additions to the squad for next season.

Forfar Albion took the lead after 15 minutes with a well worked goal. that started in their own half. A quick break down the left and a superb cut back left the striker with a gaping goal to steady himself and smash the ball past the ‘Burgh keeper.

Newburgh had the majority of play towards the close of the first half but could not find a break through.

The second half found Forfar Albion defending for long spells as Newburgh pressed looking for an opening. All credit to the young Forfar team as they defended resolutely confining Newburgh to a handful of chances.

The breakthrough came for Newburgh from a corner on the 81st minute with Kyle Baker rising above everyone to power an excellent header into the roof of the net.

A fair result on reflection against a much improved Forfar Albion side who played some cracking football.

The committee at Newburgh would like to take this opportunity to thank all the fans, players and coaches that have been involved or visited the club this season. We look forward to a break before the pre-season training begins at the end of June.

Details of all pre-season fixtures will be posted via this blog so look out for details coming over the next few weeks.

Newburgh almost made grabbed a point against an experienced Lochore Welfare side last night.

With the loss of two early goals Newburgh looked likely to implode but credit to the very young team they steadied themselves and fought back into the game going into the dressing room only 1 goal down at 4-3 thanks to a superb Callum Easson first half hat trick.
