    Cowdenbeath take on Dunfermline in the traditional West Fife derby at a packed Central Park in Cowdenbeath in July 2016, in an early season diddy cup game.

    It may well be the last competitive derby between the sides. Cowdenbeath are in an ever-tightening tailspin at the foot of Scottish League Two, belching smoke and flames, and there's no sign of a parachute. Relegation via the play offs against the winners of a tie between the Highland and Lowland League champions, at the end of this season, looks very likely.

    The "Pars" are now on the outskirts of the Scottish Championship play offs but unlikely to go up this season.

    Do they still have stock car racing at Central Park?

    Yes. It's actually the stock car owners who are slowly killing the club. The stock car business now owns Central Park and Cowdenbeath pay rent, and are barely tolerated there. Stock cars were a lifeline financially to the club when introduced by the previous chairman but I'm afraid the relationship has long since inverted, sourly.
    It's the lack of a viable alternative ground and deep local apathy towards the Blue Brazil that will sink them in the next few years, most likely. Cowdenbeath has changed out of all reognition since mining went after the Miners' Strike (Mick McGahey had more than a few open air speeches at Central Park during the strike). It's now basically a commuter town for Edinburgh.
