well I didn’t think I would get to this one. But jury duty finished early and gave me a free afternoon so off to Berwick for the game. I picked up my dad along the way and headed down to Berwick about 3pm to avoid the traffic around Edinburgh that would build up later. We arrived in Berwick around 5pm and stopped off at the pet shop and then the petrol station before seeking out dinner. Dinner was to be had at Amrans on hide hill. A delicious curry was had for dinner, it’s well worth a visit. Tummies full we were off to Shielfield.
Arrival at Shielfield.
we arrived at Shielfield around 6:30pm and headed to the bar with no name. We we greeted with the usual warm welcome and had a drink and a chat. I was then asked if I could lend a hand in the shop so we went through and into the ground just before 7pm. I then headed to the shop to help for a bit. I met a few nice folk there, a ground hopper from Norway and a nice lad from Edinburgh who recognised me from my blogs ( if you are reading this contact me and I’ll send you some small gifts). My servitude at an end I returned to my dad waiting patiently in the stand ready for kick off.
well what a start! Stenhousemuir were looking for the win to seal their place in the playoffs but it didn’t work out for them. It was a battle of a game, scrappy for the most but we scored twice to go 2-0 up. I was sure we were on a winner here, perhaps Stenhousemuir would get 1 back in the second half but 2 before halftime was a kicker. At the start of the game I would have been happy with a draw but losing a 2 goal lead isn’t t ideal......
The second half was more back and forth, Stenhousemuir were clearly after a goal to secure their playoff spot but it wasn’t to be, they will have to wait for the last game of the season to see if they are in the playoffs.
Game finished and it was back in the car and off home, arriving back just before midnight.
