Bo’ness United’s season draws to close

Have your say

BO’NESS United boss Paul Ronald apologised to fans this week and said he shared their pain after his team’s Super League campaign ground to a close with a 1-0 loss away at Carnoustie.

While there had been no chance of leapfrogging third-placed Linlithgow Rose, Ronald’s team was aiming - as ever - for three points and a good day out for the travelling support.

Ronald said: “We did want to win and try and finish on a positive. It wasn’t to be. But the bigger disappointment was obviously weeks before that.”

A flat run, comprising just one point from their past six league games, concluded a campaign that had started so brightly.

Apologising for how it panned out, he said: “It’s not a good end to the season after what promised to be a good one.”

Reflecting on his first year as manager, he said: “There have been a lot of highs and obviously some major lows as well. It has been a rollercoaster season.

“Not to finish with anything at the end is hard to take.”

The players and staff now have a few weeks to draw breath before they will analyse where the campaign fell short and get planning for the new season.
