Want to go to Wigtown?

This coming Saturday (14th of September), the First Team will be taking a trip to Wigtown, in beautiful Galloway, to take on Wigtown & Bladnoch in the SFA South Region Challenge Cup.  It promises to be (in the words of Wallis and Gromit) a grand day out.  The Club will be running a coach and there are spare seats available for supporters who wish to join the party.  To secure your place(s), please send an e-mail to info@hwufc.org.uk or contact any member of the Committee.

We hope there will be a good following for the lads, whose fine win over Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale at Saughton on Saturday showed that they are in good form going into this tie.

For those who don’t know the area, Galloway is Gorgeous (we offer the slogan free of charge to the local tourist board).  We leave Riccarton at 10 o’clock; the journey should take around 2.3/4 hours, plus around 45 minutes taken up by a stop for a light lunch in New Galloway around noon.  If all goes to plan, we should get to Trammondford Park around 1.30, ahead of a 3 o’clock kick-off.

Moving with the times…

With regular updates on Club activities and matches appearing on both Facebook (@hwufc) and Twitter (https: twitter.com/hwufc), your website editor has come to the conclusion that this site is now largely reproducing information available on social media.  Regular updates will therefore no longer take place on this site, but please note that the facility to send a message to the Club (info@hwufc.org.uk) will continue for the foreseeable future.  Please do use this service, with the assurance that all messages sent will be promptly read and acted upon.

Thank you very much to all those who have read posts and reports on this site during the years it has been in operation.  BEST WISHES TO HEAD COACH BEJAY KOYA AND THE PLAYERS FOR SEASON 2019 – 2020 AND ALL SUCCESS TO THE CLUB IN THE FUTURE.

Season ends on happy notes

Sorry about the delay since the last post – your correspondent has been busy on other important business – but let’s wind up the season’s activities now.

As previously reported, the First Team finished its programme a month ago with an exciting 3 – 3 draw with Camelon Juniors in warm sunshine at the John Brydson Arena.

The Under-20s followed their superb win over Cumbernauld Colts on the 3rd of May by losing 2 – 1 away on the 10th to Dunipace in a game in which they dominated possession but were unable to convert their chances; but a week ago on Monday (the 13th) ended their programme on a winning note, defeating Whitehill Welfare 3 – 1 to rise a place to seventh in Development League Conference ‘A’.  The effect of a profusion of  narrow defeats during the season (seven by a single goal out of a total of nine) is shown by the fact that the Watt side’s goal difference is +20, whilst those of the teams which finished above them by one point (Cumbernauld Colts) and two points (Dunipace) are respectively +11 and -5.

The Reserves also finished with a positive result, a 2 – 0 away win over Balerno Athletic producing a tenth win of the season to consolidate seventh place in the LEAFA Lothian West Division table.  This is a big improvement on last season’s outcome and the Watt management will be looking for the team to kick on from there and mount a challenge near the top of the table next season.

That tidies up the news for season 2018 – 2019.  All teams have now completed their fixtures.  We wish our readers a pleasant summer and hope to see all of you at the John Brydson Arena when the new East of Scotland League season begins in late July.
