BSC Glasgow, SFA South Region Challenge Cup Round 2, Carmuirs Park,
Saturday 14 September 2019

Bo’ness United return for the final time to their temporary home venue, Camelon
Juniors’ Carmuirs Park where they meet Lowland League Outfit BSC Glasgow in the
South Region Cup. As the name suggests the tournament is open to clubs from, not
only the East of Scotland League but also the South of Scotland League and the
Lowland League.
Last season Bo’ness received a tough baptism, losing narrowly to the eventual
winners of the competition and Lowland League Champions East Kilbride. This game
will prove to be just as difficult against one of the top teams in the tier five league.
Founded in 2014, BSC were born out of Broomhill Sports Club from Broomhill in
Glasgow. They initially ground shared with Junior side Maryhill but have spent the
last few years playing out of Alloa’s Recreation Park although hope to resettle back in
Glasgow sometime in the future. They won the South of Scotland Cup in their first
season and last year were League Cup winners and runners up in the Lowland
League. They are currently third in this season’s table and if there is any doubt how
difficult this game will be for Bo’ness, BSC defeated Bonnyrigg Rose last week at
New Dundas, the Rose’s first defeat in their inaugural season in that league.
Bo’ness fought back at Penicuik last weekend to gain a late draw despite being two
goals behind with only ten minutes remaining. Two down at half time through Andy
Forbes and Callum Connolly, the BUs pulled one back from Brian Morgan before
Craig Stevenson restored the home side’s two goal advantage from the spot. Craig
Comrie gave the BUs hope with a deflected goal and just before the end Penicuik
paid for missing a glorious chance to seal the points as Fraser Keast’s acute angled
lobbed equalised in the final minutes.
There is no doubting the fighting spirit of the Bo’ness players and this will be required
this week but the fluid football witnessed a few weeks ago at Newtongrange Star has
been less evident. Hopefully this can return soon, allowing Bo’ness to get back to
winning ways and move back up the table in the coming weeks
Saturday’s game against BSC provides Bo’ness with their stiffest challenge of the
season so far although with the visitors down as odds on favourites, they have
nothing to lose. Bo’ness they will require every advantage they can get on the day to
get a result and that includes what will hopefully be a large contingent of BU fans
giving the players their full vocal encouragement.
