‘We were cheated’ blasts Cove Rangers manager John Sheran

Cove Rangers didn’t send anyone to the traditional post-match press conference after the 3-2 defeat by Cowdenbeath in Saturday’s League Two play-off final. But manager John Sheran did vent his anger in a short interview with BBC Radio Scotland in which he claimed his side had been “cheated”.

Cowdenbeath 3-2 Cove Rangers: Cowden survive relegation to Lowland League

Last season they survived after the drama of a penalty shoot-out – yesterday Cowdenbeath retained their SPFL status amidst scenes that would have been worthy of the kind of shoot-out associated with the O.K Corral.

Interview: Donald Findlay on his love of and fears for Cowdenbeath

Donald Findlay likes to start each day with The Scotsman crossword and I imagine he usually completes it. This legal eagle perches on the uppermost branch, the ace defender of some of the nastiest pieces of work who’ve ever worn a suit in court, though he doesn’t describe himself like this. “I’m simply a mechanic,”
is what he says, “who uses words instead of tools.”

Cove Rangers have everything in place off the field for moving up from the Highland League to the SPFL next season and if they had shown a bit more composure against Cowdenbeath they would have taken a significant step towards achieving that on the park as well.

David Goodwillie eyes higher level amid tough moral questions

After bringing his goal tally for the season to 25 with a clinical finish in Tuesday night’s 3-0 win at Cowdenbeath, Clyde striker David Goodwillie admitted that he still harbours hopes of returning to a higher level of football. It is patently clear to anyone who has seen the Bully Wee this season that the former Dundee United, Blackburn Rovers, Aberdeen, Ross County and Plymouth Argyle forward is too good to be playing in Scotland’s 
fourth tier.
