Bo'ness FC

Post by GMartin » Mon Dec 14, 2009 7:38 pm

Can any one help ?. After their Scottish league membership ceased in 1932-33, did the club carry on or did a new club form ? + what seasons did they play in a league and which leagues up untill the war ?

They merged with Bo'ness Cadora to become Bo'ness United [the current Bo'ness Junior team]

God knows which leagues they played in, check Rejected FC of Scotland by D.Twydell for more info

Thanks for reply, maybe i didn't explain myself well enough, was wondering if they continued up until the start of the war, as it seems possible that they may have packed in when they left the league then reformed again as a senior side, playing in various leagues, but at some stages just friendly matches.


PS, Before the war both Bo'ness FC and Cadora were struggling badly with finances it makes you wonder if these teams (committees) were envolved with the merger to form Bo'ness United.

Had a snippet out of the West Lothian Courier, headline "ALLIANCE TRIALS TEAM", so i take it that would be 1933-34 season, it goes on to say, :- The newly formed Bo'ness FC held a trials............., could it be that they did wind-up and start again ?
