Getting to know: Whitehill Welfare

This season has been a season of uncertainty at Whitehill Welfare in the clubs 63 year history and the league table shows it.

Founded in 1953 and initially competing in junior football before turning senior and joining the East of Scotland Football League in 1979. Whitehill are the most successful side in the East of Scotland League history, winning a total of 16 titles prior to joining the Lowland League as one of its founder members in 2013.

Whitehill will be looking to rekindle the success its had historically in the East of Scotland League as they have just been relegated from the Lowland League, this was because of a somewhat disastorous start to the season as the club having changed manager three times.

Current manager Ian Little had steadied the ship somewhat and performances were improving however it was somewhat too late for the former Berwick Rangers man to fully turn their season around.

All aims for the club now are rebuilding for the coming season both on and off the pitch as the club will hope to bounce back to the Lowland League, a big chance for the more junior players at the club as Whitehill run a u20’s side.

From everyone here at ClimbingTheLadder, we just want to wish everyone at Whitehall all the best for next season and we hope its alot more successful.
