East Fife welcomed joint League 1 leaders Livingston to Bayview and ran out comfortable 3-1 winners. For the first time this season, the home side were able to name an unchanged team with the side that drew 1-1 with Airdrieonians last week again taking to the field.

 

The game was only minutes old when East Fife had their first sight of goal. Following a quick free kick taken by Kevin Smith Jamie Insall beat Liam Kelly to the ball, the ‘keeper was able to save his header before the ball fell to Mark Lamont but his shot was cleared off the line by Alan Lithgow. East Fife looked by far the better team and took a deserved lead on 8 minutes when Insall latched on to a long ball from Mark Hurst to lob Kelly from the edge of the box.

 

Livingston had the chance to draw level moments later. Liam Buchanan’s shot was stopped on the line by Gary Naysmith only to see it rebound off Danny Mullen and past the post. Instead it was East Fife who doubled their advantage. A free kick by Naysmith on the half-way line was headed down by Smith into the path of Chris Kane who volleyed home for his first East Fife goal. The home side were looking dangerous every time they entered the opposition half and a third goal arrived on 33 minutes. The Livingston defence again failed to deal with a ball over the top and Insall beat Kelly out muscled Kelly to slot home his second of the afternoon.

 

After the break both side had chances to score. A long range drive by Nicky Cadden was easily held by Hurst before excellent skill by Mark Lamont on the stand touch line saw him pick out Smith at the back post but the striker was unable to connect. Livingston did pull a goal back on 58 minutes when Buchanan hit the by-line and his cut back was knocked in by Josh Mullin. As the visitors continued to pile forward, gaps continued to open in their defence and Insall should have had his hat-trick when he was sent through by Ross Brown.

 

Livingston finished the game with 9 men when red cards were shown to Mikey Miller and Alan Lithgow for a foul and an elbow respectively. Replays show that Miller was harshly dismissed but there was no doubt about the second. Insall had tormented Lithgow all afternoon and the centre-half lashed out needlessly in anger.

 

An impressive and important win for East Fife who consolidated their fourth place in Ladbrokes League 1.

 

After the match manager Gary Naysmith spoke to East Fife TV:

“Delighted! My team talk before the game was really just for the players to believe that they could win, I believed we could win. Livingston have been on a great run, I think they’ve won 5 of their last 6 games, but I honestly believed that if we got on the front foot early we could win the game and it wasn’t a surprise to me that we won. I’ve seen signs of us coming together in the last few weeks and to be 3-0 up at half time I couldn’t have expected that. The lads took me at my word, we started the game properly, I think Mark Lamont had a shot blocked just before we scored and Livingston caused two or three problems in the first half coming in from the right hand side, we got lucky a few times but we definitely deserved to be in front at half time. We gave away a soft goal from our point of view. I lost the header, they got an easy goal and it makes you a little nervy. Livi went for it, they put 4 forwards on, a couple of wide players and launched it forward but I thought the defenders, the two screeners in midfield and the goalie defended really well, I never felt that they were going to get another goal.”

 

JAMES GOODLAD CHARITABLE FUND CHEQUE PRESENTATION

27 September 2016

James Goodlad Charitable Fund

Before last Saturday’s league match against Livingston, a cheque for £4,190 was presented to the Sir George Sharpe Unit at Cameron Bridge Hospital by the James Goodlad Charitable Fund.

The charity was formed in June 1999 following the tragic loss of James (Goody) Goodlad in a road traffic accident in December 1998. Now in its 18th year, the walking team, which consists of family and friends, have walked a total of 260 miles throughout the Scottish hills and glens in order to raise money for charity.

Many local charities have benefited, with the Sir George Sharpe Unit at Cameron Bridge Hospital having received a grand total of £34,783 to date, with an additional £5,910 previously given to the Montrave and Balgonie Wards for therapeutic equipment. To date, an overall total sum of £56,138 has been raised.

The walking team would like to convey a very sincere thank you to all who have donated in the past and present and hope to have your support in the near future. The team would also like to express special thanks to East Fife Football Club for the donation of their mini-bus to assist them on their travels, a gesture which is greatly appreciated by all!
