  1. That was the day QOS scored a 96th minute equaliser which put us in the play offs which we eventually won ripping the arse out of Dunfermline in the final. Kane Hemmings Championship player of the year on the cover - some going for a player with a part time side, and his strike partner was Greg Stewart 40 goals between them that season.
  2. It was the days before H&S though HJ they just crammed folk in. You can also say the same about Starks Park it would have been tight getting 35000 in there. Central Park would have been quite spacious by comparison. The stand also held 3500 when it was built.
  3. Clubs get the option to ask not to get put at home at the same time as local clubs in their area always has been the case, although it dosn't always work out that way.
  4. It has changed since those days though HJ. A shitty stock car track, much narrower pitch and a new stand. When I first went in the 70s the terrace was much closer to the pitch and pre 1970 it also went further back so no real surprise that it had a large capacity back in the day. I was at a cup tie v Rangers in 1984 when the official crowd was declared at 9920 or something but was much more I believe and there was lots of space on the terrace. In the 1960s Fife Council wanted to buy the place and turn it into a Meadowbank type multi sports stadium/complex in hindsight it may have been a good thing.
  5. Dunfermline beat Berwick 3-1 after extra time. Clyde 1-5 Queen's Park Aberdeen 4-1 Fraserburgh (played on Friday)
  6. It just really shows that there is cannon fodder in both the LL and HL teams playing in leagues way above their natural level.
  7. The way were letting goals in at the moment I would give the dug a game
  8. The season before the promotion one in March 62.
  9. Must be a Cliftonhill thing a dog ran on the pitch when we played there in April
  10. I seen it listed at the bottom of the preview for the Pars under 20 cup game with Berwick tomorrow on their OS as their next game so I presume it will be both sides under 20 players. Both sides don't have under 20 league games this week so at least gets the Fife Cup game out of the way.
  11. Since they beat Brechin 8-2 in 1962.
  12. Bit of a bump for the benefit of HJ, Raith v Dunfermline is on Wednesday night at Starks Park.
  13. Vintage Meadowbank away top worn by the woman in the picture. Is the Raj Restaurant still on the go?
  14. Bobby McCully remember him also. Probably the last truly decent Shire side as they managed to stay in the 1st division for a couple of seasons.
  15. Not as thin as the Spartans players hair he needs to have a word with Wayne Rooney.
