Blackburn United

Andy

Andy

Andrew is a vastly experienced goalkeeper at this level and lists West Calder United, Armadale Thistle, Broxburn Athletic and Livingston United amongst his previous clubs. Out of the game for a couple of seasons due to work commitments abroad, Andy will be looking to find the form that made him first choice at all those other sides.

Loading..Gavin

Gavin

Murieston United provided the grounding for a young Gavin before he moved onto Broxburn Athletic Colts where his performances between the sticks helped them to the Lady Darling Cup last season. After an unhappy spell at Loganlea Amateurs, where a clean sheet against United in a pre-season friendly helped draw the eye, Gavin signed on the dotted line in September 2012. Gavin joins his brother Andy here at Murrayfield Park.

Andy

Big, brave and experienced, centre half Andy Cooper spent eleven seasons at local rivals Fauldhouse United before he joined up at Murrayfield Park in September 2012. Airdrie based Andy honed his defensive skills in the West Region with Dunipace before decanting to the East Region and was brought in to replace retired captain Craig Spence.

Lee

Lee

Experienced central defender Lee signed on the dotted line in January 2012 after starting the 2011/12 season with Stoneyburn in what was his second spell with the Beechwood Park club. Lee's playing career has included regular starting spots for Bathgate Thistle, Livingston United, Harthill Royal and Armadale Thistle and he has amassed just the type of game knowhow that is required in the South Division.


Loading..David

David

New Club captain, ex-Broxburn Athletic man Davie was signed from the Albyn Park outfit in September 2007 and his defensive abilities and reading of the game are several of the important assets that he has brought to bear here at Murrayfield Park. Davie was the Club's Player and Player's Player of the Year in 2009/10.

Lee

Lee

Full-back Lee arrived at Murrayfield Park early in season 2010/11 as part of the swap deal that took a now returned Grant Easton to Fauldhouse United. As well as his time at Park View, 22 year-old Lee has also plied his trade at this level with Pumpherston after progressing from the excellent Murieston United youth set up.

Paul

Paul

Signed mid-March 2012, Paul spent several seasons at Harthill Royal earlier in his career, a spell bookended by two stints at Stoneyburn, and is an experienced full-back who is both tenacious in the tackle and athletic enough to support further forward when required.

Paul

Paul

Signed in August 2012, 23 year-old full-back Paul started out in the Airdrie United Youth set up before spending a brief season at Stenhousemuir on his way to Pumpherston via Strathclyde Colts.


Loading..Scott

Scott

Scott is a committed defender who progressed through the admired Murieston United youth ranks before spending last season at Pumpherston. Now 23 years old, Scott will be determined to make the most of a move away from a side who spent most of last season struggling at the foot of the South Division.

Grant

Grant

Grant initially signed for United from Stoneyburn after time in the youth system at SPL side Hibernian and brief spells at Gretna FC and Airdrie United before leaving for Fauldhouse United in 2011. Grant, a pacy player with an eye for a dead ball delivery, returned to Murrayfield Park in September 2012 in a swap deal that took long serving Alan Brown to Park View.

Jordan

Jordan

24 year-old, Jordan is a player who had featured on the periphery of the Stenhousemuir first team in the SFL Third Division before signing in the summer of 2008, although he made his debut as a trialist during the 2-1 win at Broxburn Athletic in December 2007. Jordan started out his footballing career with Raith Rovers in 2004, playing regularly up front in their youth teams, and has also featured briefly with Fauldhouse United and Cumbernauld United.

Greig

Greig

A combative midfielder who is strong in the tackle, Greig played several games as a trialist at the end of 2007/08 and impressed sufficiently to be signed and added to the squad in July 2008 and has become an invaluable member of the squad.


Chris

Chris

Chris arrived at Murrayfield Park in the closing months of the 2010/11 season as a youngster who showed a poise and a confidence on the ball and an eagerness to earn it back when out of possession. A fine season last time out will hopefully be built on during this campaign.

Jimmy

Jimmy

Three seasons at Recreation Park with Pumpherston, from where he arrived from a relatively successful Bridgend Amateurs side, saw Jimmy become somewhat of a utility player and the player will see his arrival at Murrayfield Park at the start of this season as a chance to secure a position in his favoured central midfield position.

Loading..Ross

Ross

SFL First Division side Hamilton Academicals was the starting point for Ross who had a previous spell here at Murrayfield Park back in season 2007/08 and season 2008/09 before moving to Kilsyth Rangers in the west. A perhaps light weight striker when he left, Ross has returned as a dynamic midfielder who doesn't give the opposition any timer and space on the ball.

Loading..Darren

Darren

Attacking midfielder Darren joined United from local rivals West Calder United in October 2012 after originally stepping up from amateur side Blackridge AFC.


Loading..Jack

Jack

A lively front man, Jack had been with Hibernian and Falkirk before taking the step into the Junior world with first Fauldhouse United and, latterly, with Arniston Rangers from whom he signed in September 2012.

Ryan

Ryan

Initially signed from SFL outfit Stenhousemuir as a teenager, wide player Ryan headed to the States in August 2010 and to a prestigious scholarship place at Cincinnati State where he played for the Ohio College's soccer team while studying towards a degree. Ryan returned to Scotland earlier this year and rejoined United in October.

David

David

David has a South East Region Youth Cup winners medal from 2010/11 after netting the equalising goal in Murieston United's eventual 4-1 triumph over Syngenta Juveniles at New Countess Park in Dunbar and, after a stop start season due to work commitments last term but which included scoring against Super League giants Linlithgow Rose, he will be hoping to deliver on the goal scoring promise he showed at U21 level.

Loading..Andy

Andy

Andy made a couple of appearances as a trialist near the end of 2006/07 after arriving at Murrayfield Park via West Calder United to become the club's top scorer in season 2008/09 and 2009/10 before leaving to join Livingston United. Andy returned to the Club in June 2011 and picked up where he left off to become the Club's record single season goalscorer with 33 goals last term, a haul which helped him to the Player's Player of the Year and Supporters Player of the Year Awards as well as the joint award for 2011/12 Player of the Year.


Nicky

Nicky

With plenty of pace, Nicky has the commodity to frighten any defence and his enthusiasm and spirit in his striking role has been evident since signing from Livingston United near the end of 2009. It was the little front man's unselfish play last season which helped earn him a share of the 2011/12 Player of the Year Award with Andy. Nicky started out as an X Form signing with Airdrie United and has also been with Cambuslang Rangers in the West Region.

Loading..Danny

Danny

Still only 19, Danny has been an absolutely prolific striker while coming through the youth ranks at Murrayfield Park and netted his first goal for the 'big' side in the win at Dalkeith Thistle at the end of 2009/10. Manager Dad Mark eased him in gently in his first full season during 2010/11 and this helped him to a steady contribution last term but now hopes are high that he can really open up at this level.

Loading..Sean

Sean

A box to box midfielder with some real bite in the tackle, Sean signed for United in mid-September 2011 after spending the previous couple of seasons at local rivals Stoneyburn and made his debut in the 5-0 home win against Dunbar United on the 24th of that month.

Peter

Peter

After starting his career at St Johnstone, 28 year-old Peter moved north to Ross County and also plied his trade in the Highland League with Brora Rangers and Nairn County before taking the step into the Junior grade with Whitburn, from where we originally signed him in July 2007. 48 games and 10 goals later Peter moved onto the East Region Premier League and to Armadale Thistle before ultimately returning to Murrayfield Park in January 2013 via Stoneyburn and a brief stint in the amateurs.
