CLASSIC KNOWLEDGE: EAST FIFE 5 FORFAR 4
Has there ever been the Saturday night score announcer's all-time dream result: East Fife 5, Forfar 4? There's $20 riding on it," said Hugh McGinley.
Nearly but not quite. The Fifers visited Station Park during the 1963-64 campaign in the old Scottish Second Division and scored four. Sadly, their hosts still won, the final score being... Forfar 5, East Fife 4.
As far as I can trace, the only score line similar to this in matches between East Fife and Forfar was Forfar 5 East Fife 4 in a Division Two match on 22 April 1964. For the record, a crowd of 900 saw Aitken (2), Stewart and Wright score for the Fifers.
David Potter is sure to know far more about this match.
