|THE STORY OF JANUARY
Since The Dream Team Online
went offline there have been a number of news items. You'll no doubt be
aware of what has been happening at the club by logging onto other sites,
but here's a re-cap.
We started the month with a dismal 2-1
defeat at the hands of Clydebank. A healthy crowd came along to Shielfield
to us go 1-0 up in the first minute and then blow it. Four days later we
entertained Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Cup- and again we blew it- after
being 2-0 up and 3-1 up, Cowden forced a replay.
In Edinburgh, Paul Smith received his
manager of the month award for December. A 4-1 cup win at Stenny, 2-0 win
at Hampden and a 1-1 draw at Partick all contributing to the award.
On Sunday, January 7 the draw
for the next round of the cup was made- we drew Hearts at home- provided
we beat Cowden in the replay.
Our game with QOS on Saturday, January 13
was postponed and our replay with Cowden was penciled in for that date.
Unfortunately heavy snow on Friday night meant the game was postponed. The
rescheduled game the following Monday was also called off, as was the
Wednesday night game.
following Friday Neil Oliver left Berwick to
join Hamilton Accies on a free. He was sick of warming the bench (or the
stand side seats!) and decided to leave for first team football.
We were then due to play Stenhousemuir
last Saturday (20th), but again the big freeze meant that game was
postponed, to add to the back log of fixtures which also includes
Stranraer and QOS.
