United would have rather be playing Bonnyton or Camelon tomorrow in the Alex Jack Cup and we all know the reason we were eliminated
Three points were the cry from the big travelling support.  With the visitors having a good run since the season started  and Eyemouth feeling it tough with the new league members.  This match might not have gone ahead after Eyemouth failed to field a team the other week.

Anyway on to a league fixture at Eyemouth in viewing the North Sea! First time here and before the Bovril went down the ball was in the back of the net for the BU when Allan MacKenzie opened the scoring after the perfect ball splitting the defence.

This was getting slightly one way traffic when Marty Wright knocked in the second.

The BU had certainly upped the play from last week and MacKenzie banged in number three and at that spot the tie was killed off and the question of how many would they score and the new management at Eyemouth will know they are in for a hard winter as they try to settle the side.

Little was coming the way of the home side but almost half an hour in and the BU switched off looking for the offside that wasn’t coming and it was soon three one.

As Eyemouth were still rocking after pulling one back it was soon four Wright knocked in his second.

No more goals in the first half but it could well have been at least seven or eight in this first period with the home keeper in fine fettle to try and keep the score down.

HT: Eyemouth 1 Bo’ness 4

Out came the visitors for the second period and had the foot on the pedal and again the keeper was playing well but it was only a matter of time and Wright got his hat trick for five


Brian Morgan entered the game and with almost the first touch he scored for number six

Devon Jacobs who seldom scores put his name on the sheet with plenty time to spare as with around fifteen minutes to go. Bo’ness were again in full control with Ross Campbell ended the scoring to make it eight

Bo’ness tend to drop to the level of the opponent but today they took the bull by the horns and the score also helps the goal difference which might help come the end of the season.

This could have been a banana skin but the BU carried out a good all round show and shouldn’t count this as having been easy and take the guard down. Next week is another tricky tie in the Football Nations Qualifying Cup at Tranent

The only worrying point was the substitution of Marty Wright if it was precautionary or an injury we don’t know at this point


Trialist on for Prentice
Morgan on for Wright
