KIRKCALDY 18 WHITECRAIGS 30

The Blues matched Glasgow southsiders and likely promotion contenders, Whitecraigs for long spells of this National league 2 match at Beveridge Park on a perfect autumn afternoon.

In the pre match warm up Whitecraigs looked the better conditioned side and their pace denied the Blues early possession. After coming close, their speedy back play paid off in the 11th minute with winger Ryan McKeown dotting down for an unconverted try after his side chose to tap a penalty in front of the posts. Quintan Sanft’s men had a bad set back just before the Whitecraigs try when centre Iain Gillies following a superb mid field break came down heavily sustaining a broken ankle

Kirkcaldy U16 26 Falkirk 32

The 10 minutes at the start of the second half ultimately cost Kirkcaldy the result in this fixture. In the first half, against a well-drilled and committed opposition, they had shown themselves more than capable of edging the fixture.

The match started with sustained Kirkcaldy pressure which was undone on 5 minutes when the Blues retreated slowly, allowing Falkirk to run onto and collect a speculative defensive kick, leading to the opening score.

GREENOCK WANDERERS 10 KIRKCALDY 14

In a storming finish by the Greenock side, the Blues just held out for an away win which their earlier play well deserved.  Starting with the experienced Mark Thomson and Greg Wallace in the prop positions and  forceful play by the back row in which youngster Steve Milne excelled. Kirkcaldy made the early running.  Despite missing a straight forward penalty in the opening minutes the Blues quickly made amends with a well struck counter from full back Finlay Smith in 20 minutes. In response Wanderers attacks were much more spasmodic although they did earn a shot at goal missed by Craig McCarron

The Late Alan Gibb
Written by Norman White   
Thursday, 11 September 2014

The Club learned today (11 September) of the sudden death of Alan Gibb. Alan, a member of the club for over 30 years, had served it in a variety of positions, including Youth convener, Bar convener and Treasurer  An enthusiastic touch line supporter , forthright in his views of players and referees, Alan seldom missed a game.

He was naturally at Beveridge Park last Saturday in his usual seat in the stand to see the opening day win against Aberdeenshire and appeared to be in good health.  The proximity of this to his death magnified the shock.

The club extends its deepest condolences to Liz and Alan jnr.  A minute’s silence in Alan’s memory will be observed at the next home game against Whitecraigs on 20 September

Mathew Collins - Kirkcaldy U16
Glenrothes 24 Kirkcaldy 27

The Kirkcaldy U15/ U16 opened their campaign in the development league with a hard-fought 3 point win over tough opponents at Glenrothes. Game management was complicated by the coaches’ intention to ensure that all 31 boys in the extended squad got some time on the pitch.

The match started with a period of sustained possession from Glenrothes who ran the ball well and showed good handling. When Kirkcaldy finally managed to get possession they started to put some phases together and showed good strength in and around the rucks.
