Hello and welcome back to another edition of Warriors Weekly. It’s a big weekend ahead for the club. Our men’s team are in Scottish Cup action, whilst our women’s team are back in League action following the winter break. Read on to find more!

Please note that this is the final edition of Warriors Weekly. 



East Fife vs Stenhousemuir

Gary Naysmith made one change from the side that defeated Stranraer 2-1 the week before. Conor Brennan missed out through injury, with Curtis Lyle making his debut after joining the club earlier in the week.

The wind would play havoc throughout the whole 90 minutes with East Fife creating the opening chance. Curtis Lyle was forced into an excellent save from a header. Adam Corbett prevented a follow up chance for the hosts, before clearing the ball.

Adam Brown broke down the left wing before playing the ball inwards. The ball would fall to Michael Miller, who tried a shot from the edge of the box but it wouldn’t test Fleming in the Fife goal.

A couple of crosses from the hosts were caught up by the wind before Matty Yates’ clearance would be caught up in the wind with the ball still in the Warriors’ third. East Fife directed the ball back towards the Warriors box before Alan Trouten would be played through and slotted the ball past Lyle in goal making it 1-0 to East Fife with 15 minutes played. 

A long ball forward caused issues for the visiting defence. Taylor Steven got onto the end of the long ball and looked to advance towards goal. Nicky Jamieson was able to keep up with the attacker and put in a fantastic challenge to deny a shot on goal.

A throw-in for the Warriors allowed a chance to be created. Michael Miller played the ball through to Matty Yates. Yates beat off the challenge of a few defenders before aiming low towards goal. Fleming was able to get down low to save.

Another long ball forward played in Taylor Steven but once again Nicky Jamieson would deny the East Fife player with an excellent challenge on the left wing.

It was almost 2-0 to the hosts just minutes later. A corner was swung in and projected towards goal due to the wind. A combination of Lyle and Miller was able to prevent the ball from crossing the line, with a second shot going narrowly wide.


The wind continued to have an affect on the game in the second half. A cross from Miller was swept away by the wind, falling to Callum Yeats. Yeats laid the ball off to Yates who fired a ball into the box. A run from Thomas Orr seemed to be enough to catch out Fleming as the ball bounced between the two players and over the keeper, into the net.  East Fife 1-1 Stenhousemuir – 61 minutes played.

Straight from kick off, East Fife tried an audacious attempt to regain the lead. A quick pass before a shot from the half way was aimed to test Lyle with the wind behind East Fife. Fortunately for the former Kilmarnock keeper, the ball went over the bar.

The Warriors created the next chance. With the hosts trying to counter, Nat Wedderburn intercepted a pass before teeing the ball through to Callum Yeats. A quick one-two between Yeats and Brown allowed the former to play through Matty Yates. Yates shot was saved by Fleming before the ball rebounded off the Warriors’ number 10 and out for a goal kick.

There was another chance for the Warriors moments later. Yates turned provider playing through Orr. Orr’s shot was well saved by Fleming.

Daniel Higgins was fouled in the middle of the park. Michael Miller was quick to react and launched the free kick forward. O’Reilly latched onto the ball and drove towards goal. There appeared to be a shove on the back of O’Reilly before he got a shot away but the referee played on.

A Ross Forbes corner created the next chance for the visitors. He found the head of Adam Corbett from a corner, who directed the ball towards goal. Nat Wedderburn got caught in the way of the ball, who quickly tried to rectify his interception but slammed the ball wide.

The game would finish 1-1 with neither side creating much of note following Wedderburn’s chance.
