BUFC Pin Badges (2-11-14-19) (11/2/15)
Hot off the catwalks of Paris, New York and the Mill Centre, the latest
fashion must have for the coming season, the Burnie pin badge, in a
limited exclusive run of 50 badges, is here and it's your chance to make
yourself stand out from the crowd and be the envy of everyone in the
queue at the chip van. For the knock down price of £3.00 (willing to
accept more!) you too can cut a dash on the touchlines of east central
Scotland. Speak to any committee member to secure yours.....
Milestone Appearances (21/2/15)
Alan Brown, United's longest serving player, has
become the first man at the club to reach 400
appearances, a record clocked up yesterday
Also reaching a notable milestone in the same
game was midfielder Ross Williamson who was
making his 100th appearance for the club.
Suspension Blow (30/4/15)
Top scorer Danny Campbell's booking against Dunbar United on Saturday took his disciplinary points for the season to 18 and will incur an automatic two game suspension. The suspension will take effect from Sunday 3rd May and, unfortunately, means that Danny will be missing when the team line-up at Newtown Park to face Bo'ness United in the Quarter Final of the Fife & Lothian's Cup. Despite the date for this game not yet being set it will, none the less, be the Club's next fixture as our league season has now finished. Danny will also miss either the semi-final, should we negotiate a way past Bo'ness, or the first competitive game of next season.
Another Milestone Appearance (20/4/15)
Fraser Spence's appearance against Rosyth at the weekend was his 50th for the Club since signing from local rivals Whitburn in the summer of 2013. Congratulations Fraser!
Two 'Keepers Added (8/3/15)
Mark and Jamie have added two goalkeepers to the playing squad for the run-in. With first choice No.1 James Wightman unavailable due to work commitments, Connor Shaw has been signed from Bathgate Thistle for a modest fee and is joined by Glasgow based free-agent Colin Robertson. 20 year-old Connor started out as a youth signing on Rangers books and has also spent time with East Fife and East Stirling in the SPFL before moving into the Juniors with first Hill o'Beath Hawthorn and then Bathgate Thistle from where he signed for a modest fee. 26 year-old Colin has experience at Saltcoats Victoria, Ardeer Thistle, Blantyre Vics, Stonehouse and Girvan in the West Region. Welcome to the Club guys!
