Bo’ness United finished the Lowland League campaign sitting ninth with 54 points. But, the agony of losing the Lowland League Cup Final for the second consecutive year, on penalties to East Kilbride will be something that will spur club legend, and now manager, Stuart Hunter to aim for bigger and better things.

Former manager, Max Christie made a return to Tranent, taking key-player Alassan Jones and young Lennon Walker with him. Central Defender, Shaun Rutherford had made the move in the opposite direction – setting up for the season at Newtown Park.

Gala Fairydean Rovers finished five points behind Bo’ness United, ending the campaign in twelfth position. But, Martin Scott’s men can look back on the season fondly, finishing with their first-ever silverware in their current incarnation – lifting the East of Scotland Cup, with the 10-men GFR beating Linlithgow Rose on penalties.

The 22/23 campaign also saw GFR involved in some very entertaining and high-scoring games, including a 4-1 win over Open Goal Broomhill, a 3-3 draw with Hearts B, as well as 5-4 and 4-3 defeats to East Kilbride and Celtic B. Having lost their high-profile striker, Zander Murray to Bonnyrigg Rose – they’ve turned to Tranent’s top-goalscorer, Nicky Reid to find the back of the net.
