Stenhousemuir 0-2 Cowdenbeath

Cowdenbeath got their first win of 2022 against the only club they claimed an away league victory over in 2021.

After a goal less first half, Robbie Buchanan opened the scoring in the 48th when he got in behind the Stenhousemuir back line and slotted the ball past Ryan Marshall.

Bobby Barr then added a second with his first Blue Brazil goal, volleying home just before the hour mark.

Quinn Coulson brought a great save from Marshall when he cut in from the right and fired into the top left hand corner. And the on loan youngster had another opportunity but sent the ball wide when through one on one with Marshall.

The win sees Maurice Ross' side move two points closer to 9th placed Albion Rovers.

TEAM : Gill, Thomson, Mullen, Todd, Denham, Glass, Miller, Morrison, B Barr (L Buchanan), R Buchanan, Coulson (Swann)

SUBS NOT USED : Clarke, Hutton, McGurn, Pollock

NEXT UP : We welcome Stranraer to Central Park on Saturday 22nd January.

MATCH PREVIEW - STENHOUSEMUIR (A)
Posted January 15, 2022
It's our first away game of 2022 as we head over the Forth to face Stenhousemuir with a 3pm kick off at Ochilview Park.

Ochilview was the only away ground that we won an away league game on during 2021 when goals from Kris Renton and Jamie Todd gave us a 2-0 win on 24th April.

We returned there in August and a depleted side came back from being down to a Darren Christie goal to level through Kris Renton for a deserved 1-1 although Ross Clarke was sent off in the closing stages. The return game at Central Park in October saw a 2-0 win for the Warriors with Craig Thomson putting through his own net before Robert Thomson doubled the visitors advantage.

That win kicked started Stephen Swift’s side who went onto win next four league and cup games. The run was followed by three defeats but since then they have only lost once in their last five games and have moved up to fourth in the table.

New signing Sam Denham goes straight into the squad although Craig Barr (suspension) and Andy Barrowman (injury) miss out.

Rabbie Dow - 1937-2022
Posted January 13, 2022

Cowdenbeath FC have today sadly learned of the passing of one of our former players, Robert ‘Rabbie’ Dow, on 3 January 2022 at the age of 84. Condolences go to all Rab’s family and friends from everyone at Central Park. There are indeed still Cowden fans who recall when Rabbie sported the colours of his home town club. Rab was born at 36 Arthur Street in Cowdenbeath on the 29 September 1937 – a born and bred Cowdenbeath laddie. He attended Foulford and Beath High Schools and was an avid footballer from a young age. In 1947, he was a member of the Foulford School team that won the Montgomery Cup alongside such well-known names as Dave Guthrie, Bill Livingstone, Bert Johnston and George Kinnell.

He was also a follower of Cowdenbeath FC and soon was playing for their nursery club Cowdenbeath Royals. A note in the Cowdenbeath Advertiser from June 1952 reports that the Cowdenbeath Football Supporters Club annual outing took place at Mawmill Farm in Kinross. 150 adults and 160 juveniles went along. The boys’ race champion was George Kinnell with Rab Dow in 3rd place.

Rab Dow was a contemporary of players such as Bobby Gilfillan, Jock Miller and Hugh Ness at Cowdenbeath Royals. In 1956, he went from the Royals to play for Crossgates Primrose along with Norrie Rattray and Alan Shaw. Jim Baxter joined Crossgates at the same time. In one of his very first matches, Rab headed the winner in the Fife Cup final for Crossgates v Newburgh. Rab was a hard working player who was very fit and full of running. He stepped up to join Cowdenbeath in season 1957/58 and played for ‘the Miners’ that season and in the following one. At that time the Cowden side was full of local boys such as Jock Miller, Bobby Gilfillan, Donald Clark, Basher Murphy, Dave Beveridge and Bobby Ross. In 1957, Rab also hit the newspaper headlines across Scotland when he was a Co-op milkman in Cowdenbeath. His horse bolted and he was thrown off the lorry. The horse then knocked over a butcher’s van and then hit a furniture van before it was brought under control.

Rab later enjoyed telling the story about when he read in the papers that several clubs including Rangers were watching youngsters Gilfillan and Dow. Just after this Rab was walking into Central Park one day when a big flash car drew up alongside him. Peering inside Rab was convinced it was Scot Symon of Rangers. The car’s occupant asked him, “Are you Robert Dow?” However, when he replied in the affirmative his dreams of Ibrox were rudely shattered. It wasn’t Scot Symon after all but a reporter who wanted to interview him about his recent recapture of the runaway horse!

After playing for Cowdenbeath, Rab went on to play junior football for many years. He thrived at Oakley United who were then quite a new junior club in the Fife League. Famous ex-Scotland player Charlie Fleming coached the team at first and later Tommy McDonald succeeded him. There were lots of Cowdenbeath/Hill of Beath boys at Oakley then - Mick Payne, Rab Sharp, Roddy Mill, George and Dick Moran, Charlie Bartie and John Fyfe among them. Bert Allan the comedian was the goalkeeper for a time as well. Then when Jubilee Athletic came to play as juniors for few years in Cowdenbeath, Rab played for them alongside many other well-known local boys. He stayed in Chapel Street around that time. He also played in the Elliot’s Factory team. After his footballing days ended Rab was a regular golfer at Lochgelly for many years.

His family passed on the following details to us today – ‘Robert ‘Rabbie’ Dow passed peacefully at the Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy on Monday 3rd January 2022 aged 84 years. Much loved dad, father-in-law, grandad, brother, uncle and friend. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Funeral service will be held at Beath Cemetery, Cowdenbeath at 10am on Thursday 20th January 2022, to which all friends and family are respectfully invited. There will be an opportunity to leave a donation for Alzheimer’s Scotland if so desired. Thank you to everyone for the messages of condolence the family have received’.

Rabbie was proud to have played for Cowdenbeath FC and we pass on our respects and thanks for all his service and commitment to our club – the Order of Service for Rabbie’s funeral will bear the crest of Cowdenbeath FC on its reverse.

Stenhousemuir vs Cowdenbeath: Match Preview
Ian Fitzpatrick
11 hours ago


On Saturday we welcome Cowdenbeath to Ochilview as we look to make it 2 wins in a row.

The two sides last met in in October which resulted in The Warriors taking a 2-0 win with a goal from Robert Thomson and an own goal by Craig Thomson. This was Robert Thomson’s last match being forced off injured. Unfortunately there’s no chance for a dream return for the big striker against Cowdenbeath, but he does return to full training on Tuesday and should be in contention for a return against Elgin City.

Our head to head record against Saturday’s visitors has not been favourable. There’s been 189 meetings between the sides with The Warriors coming out on top 30.2% times. Cowdenbeath wins count for 43.3% of the games with 26.5% resulting in draws.

Both teams haven’t been on the best of form lately. The Warriors boast 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in our last 6 matches, while Cowdenbeath have 1 win, 4 losses and 1 draw.

We have played Cowdenbeath once on 15th January, again, this wasn’t a positive result with The Warriors going down 1-0 away back in 1977! The Warriors have played 10 times on 15th January, only registering 2 wins.

The squad is almost back to full strength with Graeme Smith and Robert Thomson the only absentees. Dec Hughes has returned to training, but Saturday maybe too soon for a return.

Jon Craig has officially returned to Kilmarnock and will continue his rehabilitation as a Kilmarnock player.

Cowdenbeath 1-3 Annan Athletic

Two penalties and a red card helped Annan Athletic make it three wins out of three against Cowdenbeath this season as they strengthen their League 1 Play Off chances.

The visitors took the lead in the 7th minute after Lewis Hunter was fouled inside the area and Tony Wallace slotted home the resultant spot kick.

Andrew Barrowman's debut only lasted 14 minutes with the new signing being forced off due to injury but his replacement, Liam Buchanan, grabbed the equaliser in the 32nd minute for The Blue Brazil. The Galabankies, however, regained their advantage on the stroke of half time through Tommy Goss.

Cowdenbeath were reduced to ten men in the 58th minute with Craig Barr receiving two yellow cards in the space of a minute. And things went from bad to worse for the home side with Annan being awarded and scoring a second penalty. This time Aidan Smith netted in the 85th minute.

The defeat sees Maurice Ross' side 11 points adrift at the foot of League 2.

TEAM : McGurn, Mullen, Glass (Clarke), Thomson, C Barr, Todd, Hutton, Morrison (Coulson), Barrowman (L Buchanan), B Barr, R Buchanan

SUBS NOT USED : Swann, O'Connor, Miller

NEXT UP : We travel to Ochilview to take on Stenhousemuir on Saturday 15th January.
