  1. He was 61 years old when he scored the penalty !
  2. Dumbarton of course had the three Coyle brothers in their team, though I think only ever two at a time.
  3. Looks like a match on an overseas pre-season tour to me. "I N" on the banner maybe Internazionale ?
  4. Love this ! Better marking of Sposito was required though IMHO.
  5. Keith Peacock, the first substitute in England, came on to replace an injured goalkeeper in August 1965.As already mentioned Archie Gemmill was the first sub in Scotland, in August 1966, replacing Jim Clunie. Subs were only allowed to be used to replace injured players in the early days, rather than for tactical reasons.
  6. He was some player though [emoji6].
  7. There was a John Maher in the team, but Stewart Auld sprang to my mind when I saw this photo.
  8. Match programme for Clydebank v Rangers 12 April 1986. The Bankies first and only victory over Rangers. 2-1. I believe Souness had agreed to take the Rangers manager's job, but the team had been picked by Alex Totten.
  9. I seem to remember Clydebank switching quite a few of their home matches to away ones when the Kilbowie pitch was suffering badly during one winter of a Premier League campaign in the mid- 80s. They also had a run of home games towards the end of that season. I'll try to find out the details. Edit They played 5 consecutive away matches during the winter of season 1985/86. Taking games either side of that into consideration it was 8/10 aways. They then finished the season with 6 consecutive home matches, expanding to 7/8. Beating Rangers did not prevent them finishing bottom of the league. However, league reconstruction was hurriedly planned in order to save the full-time players of Motherwell (as they had looked like being bottom dogs) from being relegated and therefore part-time Clydebank gratefully prepared for a 3rd ever season in the top flight.
  10. Only found the shirt which includes the sponsor's name. The Bukta logo was reduced in size for televised matches.
  11. Buy a megaphone so you can be heard shouting on your favourites.
  12. Revenge for the year before when Hearts won 3-2 on aggregate.
  13. The reviews suggest these are, "fantastic"; "very good and versatile", "(a) tape mesure [sic],brought as a joke", and resulting in "one happy brother." [emoji2]
