Game 5: Arbroath 0-3 Livingston

Date: Wednesday, July 16, 2014 – 7.45pm Venue: Gayfield Park, Arbroath Last year, the Livingston pre-season featured a training camp with games against Romanian opposition in the north of England, followed by an attractive couple of home games and a two match tour of the far north of Scotland.

Game 3: Livingston 3-0 Falkirk XI

Game 3: Livingston 3-0 Falkirk XI

Date: Sunday July 13, 2014 – 1pm Venue: Ainslie Park, Edinburgh As someone that likes a bit of variety in my football, there is something odd about travelling to the same venue two days running. Such is the nature of the Ronnie Swan tournament hosted by Spartans, which in its four team format gives each competing side two … Continue reading

This is the first … Continue reading

Game 87: Hamilton Accies 2-0 Livingston

Friday, February 21, 2014 @ New Douglas Park “This is the kind of game that could get football stopped,” I tweeted midway through this Friday night game in Hamilton. It was poor fare, though I’m the first to admit that my judgement may be clouded by own club bias and the crushing disappointment of a … Continue reading

Game 85: Alloa Athletic 0-3 Livingston

Game 85: Alloa Athletic 0-3 Livingston

Saturday, February 15, 2014 @ Recreation Park One the many things I love about football is its capacity to produce something unexpected, unusual or special. This was a routine league game for my own club at the ground I’ve visited many times, but thanks to an exceptional goal from Livi midfielder Martin Scott, it’s one that I’ll be … Continue reading

Game 82: Dumbarton 2-2 Livingston

Game 82: Dumbarton 2-2 Livingston

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 @ Bet Butler Stadium, Dumbarton With respect to Dumbarton, visits to the Bet Butler Stadium don’t tend to stand out in Livingston’s fixture list. A quirk of fate will ensure that this fairly unremarkable game will be remembered forever by at least one travelling supporter, however. With it’s single modern stand, Dumbarton’s home ground is … Continue reading
