BO’NESS head to Newtongrange Star on Saturday in the First Round of The Alex Jack. Max Christie has said, “He was excited in what he saw at Crossgates with the finishing and the football on the ground as well. It could be a different line up from last week”
Having a good squad and fit means playing for positions could be hard for a team like Bo’ness. The boys will know it is not guaranteed you will be playing from his selection and some might be sitting beside us on the bench.
Last time Bo’ness played a cup tie against Newtongrange and the BU won on penalties.in a good cup run in our first season in the senior leagues.
Last season in the Alex Jack Cup semi-final and to win this cup would have been a ticket to play in the William Hill Scottish Cup. Unfortunately, we were all let down in the semi-final when the BU played a sub who was suspended so someone missed this out on the player suspensions and could easily have been a big payday like the equivalent of winning the Junior Cup. And you will always remember the fiasco when the BU was eliminated at the quarter-final stage exactly the same as what happened against Haddington in the semi-final and booted out the cup. Haddington was to follow as they did exactly the same and out the cup, they went, The cup eventually went to Camelon without having to plat the final. That is now history and will appear in the records.
Today we would also like to wish our neighbours in the EOSFL all the best as they venture out into the William Hill Scottish Cup first round. Not forgetting the juniors like Auchinleck Talbot who travel to Dundonald.
See you all at 2.30 at New Victoria Park on Saturday,
