CHECK BACK IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS
The promotion season. Probably the best season of football at Shielfield in
recent times. We even had a wee bit of a run in the cup.
A pretty mediocre season for Berwick, we did however play some brilliant
football in a three month period which saw us beaten only once. Any hopes of
promotion we ended at Ross County in March with a 6-0 hammering.
Our first ever season in the Third Division. We all thought we'd come
straight back up, but we didn't. Jimmy Thompson was replaced by Paul Smith
early in the season, but we still went on to finish sixth. This was also the
season we got a 7-0 hiding from the Tims.
We were dreadful, we were bottom for the majority of the season, and we were
ultimately relegated with half a dozen games to spare.
Tom Hendrie went to Alloa, and took half the Berwick team with him. Ian Ross
took over but we could only finish third.
After the success of the previous season, we never quite got it together and
we finished in fifth place.
The season we should have gone up to the First Division- unfortunately the
SFL decided to restructure the divisions that season and although we
finished league runners-up, we stayed in the second division.
