The Lea travel to Blairwood Park on Saturday surely one of the hardest pitches to find in deepest Fife full of promise after the 2-2 draw with Broughty Athletic on Sat past. The squad will be strengthened by the return of Calum Watson from injury although Scott McDowell is still a doubt. The club know little of their opponents other than that Manager Lee Dair from last season has departed and replaced by the Manager of Lochgelly Albert so it will also be a trip into the unknown. Kick Off at Blairwood Park is 2.30pm and the Postcode for any Satnav followers is KY12 9RA

After Roselea's disappointing defeat to Forfar West End on Wednesday night they get a quick chance to redeem the 4-1 reversal when Broughty Athletic visit Broomfield Park.

McBOOKIE.COM EAST PREMIER LEAGUE
WEDS 6th AUGUST 2014

Roselea opened up their 2014-15 East Premier League campaign against Forfar West End and returned home pointless after a 4-1 defeat. After what appeared to be a foul on Scott McDowell, Darren Scott broke free and slotted home in 20 mins then slack marking following a corner saw Gary Robertson head home in 2...7 minutes. A superb solo goal from Dale Reid in 43 minutes gave Roselea a half time lifeline. Graham Hart struck a great free kick in 48 minutes which saw the ball hit the bar then bounce off keeper Ross McLeods back and into the net. Roselea had a good spell of pressure in the following 20 minutes however the breaks did not come and sub Mark Pirie finished the game off with a fine finish in 71 minutes. West End deserved their win and things wont get any easier for Roselea on Saturday as big spending Broughty Athletic arrive at Broomfield Park.

ARNISTON RANGERS 3 MONTROSE ROSELEA 3

They say that football is decided by fine lines, well these lines were waver thin today as Roselea deservedly hung on to their Premier League status by clinching a 3-3 draw with a 90th minute equaliser coming back from 3-0 down at Half Time. Roselea set up with a defensive formation but very quickly a slick Arniston side were stroking the ball around and giving Roselea no end of problems. A Kateleza double in 12 and 26 minutes got the home side in front with only glimpses of Dale Reids pace showing them any problems. Just before Roselea could get in to reassemble at Half Time Craig Thomson curled a low free kick around the wall to give the home side what looked like an unassailable 3-0 HT lead. There was worse news to follow at Half Time as news filtered through that Dundee Violet were 1-0 up against Glenrothes meaning relegation was beckoning.

Manager Brand made a couple of changes with both Paul Taylor and Aaron Thomson being replaced by Andy Tringham & Calum Watson neither having played badly. There was early signs that this might spark Roselea when Reid sent Watson in but his low shot was saved. There was a slight reprieve for Roselea when Glenrothes had equalised at Violet and REID clawed a goal back for Roselea. Violet then retained their lead and went further in front which was bad news for Roselea. Paul WHYTE then headed home to set up a grandstand finish. In the 90th minute Calum WATSON latched on to an misplaced Anderson shot and coolly finished from close range to spark jubilant scenes of celebration with Roselea players, Coaches and Fans piled high on the slope in the corner of the ground. The referee found 5 minutes of added time and it also gave Roselea a few scary moments before he blew for full time. The results mean that Roselea and Violet are safe and Kirkcaldy YM who looked as if they would be safe are relegated.

Congratulations go to the players who have worked hard all season and deserve to stay in this league, the Management for their dedication and to the Fans who have stuck with the team through some hard times and long travels this season.

From a personal point of view in 27 years of playing and watching Junior football I have never been involved in such a dramatic day for which it turned out so well for Roselea.

Bring on Season 2014-15 and if it brings as much excitement as this I may not still be around to witness it!!

Away the Lea! RTID
