Queen’s Park 0-0 Stenhousemuir

May 17, 2009 – Hampden Park, Glasgow I always enjoy a trip to the home of Scottish football but as a spectacle this game wasn’t really up to much. Queen’s needed a win to overturn Stenhousemuir’s 2-1 first leg advantage but they rarely looked capable of getting the goals they needed.  There were a couple … Continue reading

East Stirlingshire 1-2 Cowdenbeath

May 13, 2009 – Ochilview Park, Stenhousemuir I have to confess to having a wee soft spot for East Stirlingshire, so I ventured along to this game in the hope of seeing them take a step towards some long overdue and much deserved success. Stenhousemuir’s Ochilview Park was the venue, as it is for all … Continue reading

Ross County 2-2 Livingston

May 2, 2009 – Victoria Park, Dingwall There’s not many long journeys in the Scottish First Division this season, making the bi-annual visits to Dingwall two not to be missed. Victoria Park is as close to a perfect venue as there is for medium sided Scottish clubs – it’s compact and (usually) offers the chance … Continue reading

Partick Thistle 1-0 Livingston

April 25, 2009 – Firhill Stadium, Glasgow I was sorely tempted to attend one of the Scottish Junior Cup semi final second leg games but instead stuck to club loyalties and went along to Firhill. The home of Partick Thistle is one of my favourite ‘away’ grounds, which is mainly why I didn’t make for … Continue reading

Clyde 0-1 Livingston

April 4, 2009 – Broadwood Stadium, Cumbernauld “The Struggle of the Skint” read Clyde’s match programme with refreshing honesty, but for most of the hardy punters who turned up to watch there would have been a struggle to stay fully conscious during what was an absolutely dreadful game of football. Normally I am keen to defend … Continue reading

Queen of the South 3-3 Livingston

March 21, 2009 – Palmerston Park, Dumfries I’m biased, of course, but there can be few teams at any level, anywhere in Scotland, serving up as much ‘value for money’ in terms of goals than Livingston at the moment. After the epic 4-4 draw with Airdrie United a few weeks back, today’s visit to Palmerston … Continue reading

Cowdenbeath 0-0 Forfar Athletic

March 10, 2009 – Central Park After the goal feast of Saturday at Airdrie, there was famine at Central Park tonight as Scottish Third Division leaders Cowdenbeath stumbled to a goalless draw at home to Forfar. As 0-0 games go it wasn’t the worst I have ever seen, with both sides having a few chances … Continue reading

Airdrie United 4-4 Livingston

March 7, 2009 – Excelsior Stadium, Airdrie For long spells in the first half this was a pretty poor advert for First Division football. Then, all of sudden, it burst into life to become one of the most remarkable games I’ve seen for a few seasons! Eight goals and one of the most bizarre red … Continue reading

Livingston U19 4-0 Partick Thistle U19

March 1, 2009 – Almondvale Fieldturf, Livingston When you support a team like Livingston it’s not everyday that you get to enjoy a championship success. We have enjoyed a reasonable amount of success in the past, but in comparison to the likes of the Old Firm, silverware isn’t something that we are particularly used to … Continue reading

St Johnstone 1-0 Livingston

  February 14, 2009 – McDiarmid Park The first completely new football stadium built in Scotland in generations, McDiarmid Park opened its doors almost twenty years ago, with its first game played in August 1989. I recall visiting it on a freezing cold day not long afterwards and marvelling at the facilities on offer, which were … Continue reading
