Match report – Stoneyburn Juniors v Newburgh

v
Newburgh travelled over the River Forth to face league leaders Stoneyburn Juniors on Saturday in a first v second tie. Stoneyburn have managed to remain un-defeated so far this season so this was going to be a difficult trip for the ‘Burgh Newburgh started the game well with some neat passing and movement causing Stoneyburn problems in the opening exchanges. Jamie Gay and Jack Hutchison were working well together in the middle of the park moving the ball through the home defence for the lively Harry Galloway. Newburgh opened the scoring in the tenth minute the product of some excellent play by Jack Cowan. A crossed ball into the box was neatly flicked on by Sam Kirkham finding Cowan inside the penalty area. The ‘Burgh livewire beat three defenders to give himself space to slot the ball into the corner establishing an early lead for Newburgh. Newburgh were well worth their lead at this point and could have extended the advantage creating several chances shortly after the re-start. The home side pulled their socks up and fought their way back into the game with Gowans causing the Newburgh defence problems with his movement and pace on the left-hand side. The equaliser came in the 27th minute with Robertson pouncing on a loose pass across the defence. The Stoneyburn top goal scorer curled an inch perfect shot beyond Calum Sutherland to restore parity to the score line. A crazy 2-minute spell just after the half hour shaped the remainder of the game. In the 32ns minute Stoneyburn were awarded a penalty when Gordon Clark tackled a Stoneyburn forward in the box. The ‘Burgh defender insisted to the referee that he played the ball first but the official had made his mind up and the spot kick was converted by Gowans to give the home side the lead. Within a minute of the re-start Newburgh were reduced to ten men with Thomson send for an early shower after a poorly timed tackle cost him his second yellow card of the game. Newburgh continued to play well but with ten men the game was always going to be an uphill struggle. The second half continued in a similar vein as the first had ended. Stoneyburn held on to the ball well and with Newburgh chasing the game chances were few and far between, Stoneyburn added a third goal to give them a 2-goal cushion in the 68th minute with a perfect strike by Craig from 10 yards out beating Sutherland. Newburgh crafted several chances in the remainder of the game the with Scarborough, Ananndale and Kirkham all coming close to reducing the deficit. As the game drew to a close Stoneyburn stamped their authority on proceeding and as Newburgh’s ten me tired they found it more and more difficult to create chances. A Stoneyburn header that hit the ‘Burgh post in the closing minutes was as close as either side came to increasing their goal tally. Manager Hudson spoke after the game “What was going to be a difficult task was not helped with the sending off. Stoneyburn are not top of the league by accident. We played well in phases and I am proud of the way we continued to play our game even being a man down”. Newburgh are without a fixture this coming weekend with their next fixture on the 30th of November away to Kirkcaldy & Dysart FC.

Match report – Newburgh v Bo’ness UTD JFC

v

 

Newburgh faced Bo’ness Utd in this South Premier league fixture looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season the previous weekend.

With holidays and injuries restricting Newburgh to 2 fit substitutes this was going to be a stern test against the previously un-defeated Bo’ness side.

Newburgh started the game well taking the pay to the visitors with the front two of Sutherland and Gay causing problems from the off. Sutherland almost opened the scoring on the 7th minute, latching on to a long ball over the defence. Sutherland’s pace took him beyond the last defender, the goalkeeper was quick off his line to close the angle with Sutherland’s shot hitting the post and rebounding allowing a defender to clear.

At the other end Calum Sutherland was called into action twice in quick succession pulling off superb reaction saves from Bo’ness attempts to maintain a clean sheet.

Newburgh finally broke the deadlock on the 34th minute with Jamie Gay latching on to a loose ball inside the penalty area. Gay’s quick feet allowed him to make enough space to slot the ball low into the corner of the net.

Newburgh took the game to Bo’ness and were rewarded with a second goal before half time. Clark took a free kick from just outside Newburgh’s 18 yard box and placed a perfect diagonal pass into Robinson’s path. A superb first touch allowed Robinson to attack his marker at pace. The Bo’ness defender looked to have stolen the ball from Robinson, but the tenacious wide man stole the ball back and bore in on goal. The keeper came off his line to narrow the angle but Robinson slotted the ball past him into the net.

With the second goal providing a cushion Newburgh saw out the first half taking the advantage into the break.

The second half found Bo’ness holding a good proportion of the possession but unable to break down Newburgh defence with chances for either side few and far between. Newburgh’s midfield were playing well with Hutchison and McKinnon in the central areas breaking up any attacks before they were allowed to develop. The wide combinations of Scarborough and Annandale on the left with Fraser and Robinson on the right were stretching the play making it hard for Bo’ness to build any momentum. Any attacks that did break through found Clark and Kirkham in superb form at the centre of the defence.

Newburgh grew into the half and from the hour mark looked to increase their lead, with Sutherland and McKinnon coming close. As time ran on Newburgh managed play well breaking up play and frustrating the visitors who could not find any way through towards the ‘Burgh goal.

Newburgh manager Scott Hudson was pleased to see his side back to winning ways, “last weeks result could have set us back if we had allowed it as momentum is massive in football. Thankfully the lads responded well today and we got the result that we needed before the break for the cup tie next weekend. Everyone stepped up today every one of them played well and I have nothing but praise for their performance”.

Newburgh travel to Sauchie on Saturday to play in the 1st round of the DJ Laing East Region Cup
