Newburgh’s 18-19 season drew to a close on Wednesday night with a league fixture against Lochore Welfare. With Lochore moving to the South league in the new East Region format next season this may be the last game between the two rivals for some time.

On a beautiful evening with a pitch made for playing expansive football Lochore flew out of the blocks and pressed Newburgh back in the opening minutes of the game. With a speedy front line they were looking to get in behind the ‘Burgh defence with probing long balls over the top causing the home defence problems.

Lochore opened the scoring 13 minutes into the game. The ‘Burgh defence didn’t deal with a diagonal ball allowing Doig to pick up the ball with just Warrender to beat from an angle. The Lochore striker somehow managed to squeeze the ball in past the keeper from a tight angle to give Lochore the advantage.

Newburgh picked themselves up from the early set back and stamped themselves on the game from the middle of the half onwards. Gay and Reilly were combining well in the middle of the park with Sean MacBride and Fraser pushing further up the park stopping the Lochore wide men from getting the ball in dangerous areas.

The ball broke out of the box to Kurtis McKenzie who smashed a shot off the defender, the ball broke back to McKenzie who drove another shot towards goal. The Lochore keeper made a good save but couldn’t hold the ball which once more broke to McKenzie who this time made no mistake heading the ball over the keeper to give Newburgh a foot hold in the game.

The second half was a far better half for Newburgh with the new formation giving the midfield more time and space to create chances. There were chances at both ends over the course of the half but neither team managed to profit from their endeavors with the game ending and Lochore taking all 3 points.

Scott Hudson, Newburgh manager, was happier with the second half performance “we realised at half time that we needed to make a change as Lochore were well on top in the first. The second half formation gave us scope to push forward and put Lochore under pressure. The early goal was exactly what we were looking for and I thought that if we could have bagged another goal we would have gone on to win the game”.
