Allan McGonigal goes into this weekend trying to get the team to believe in themselves and a win will just be around the corner.
Heads will be down as they try to overcome the loosing streak they are in but they are will capable of turning this around and getting back up the league.
Firstly a trip to newly promoted Kennoway awaits tomorrow for what will be a big game as United look for their first away win of the season. Michael Gemmell (broken foot) and Chris Donnelly (back). Scott Sally misses out after a hamstring injury and Marty Wright isn’t ready yet due to his stomach injury.

These are being produced by Chris Veitch and Kevin McAlpine. Their first production was for the Will Snowdon testimonial and I am sure many more will follow.
There is an opportunity for any budding camera men to hone their skills by filming our games. Contact Chris Veitch for details.
Progress continues with the proposed exciting development of Newtown Park. A meeting was held on Tuesday at which Derek Crossan attended and work towards part one of the project (the astrograss) continues to go well.
It has been fantastic to work with our community club and as the bonds strengthen it has been marvellous to see the first Under 19’s team play their opening league fixture. Furthermore a couple of the boys have already been training with the first team which will be a regular occurance. It is now fantastic that there is a pathway from 6’s all the way to the first team. Thank you to Peter Hay for all his hard work and support.
Work continues to progress on meeting the requirements for getting Newtown Park licensed in case of a decision to apply for said license. The referees room had already been improved and more will follow.
The new facility is ready to open and will be used for the Linlithgow Rose game. It gives us double the capacity which will benefit the club financially and of course give an improved hospitality service for our supporters.
We have secured several new advertising sponsors and are always looking for more. If you’re interested please contact Iain Muirhead.
We have heard a lot of rumours and misinformation regarding the club finances. Those who were at the AGM will have seen the accounts. We can assure all supporters that we are not in any sort of financial difficulty and would suggest that most clubs would be happy with our financial position.
If any supporters wish to discuss anything with myself I am available at games and on a Monday evening at Newtown Park.
