Just to clarify it would have been a 3 pm kick off  but would have had floodlights on due to the time of year. Nice for you if we've cleared that up though.

I even had a look on eBay to see if there's a prog available for your first game. There is for the December game but not the August one. 

I think you have thank you. 

 

Does anyone happen to have team line up from the august game that year. Thanks in advance

This was the Livi physio up to July 2007 - the first game was in August so it's a possibility, but she doesn't look very large.

The second game was at Christmas, floodlights and John O'Neill scored a penalty. Ring any bells?

You're records are clearly different to SD's.

Well here's my Queens autobiography:

First game against Dundee in I think, 1976, might have been 77.  One of those rare games when we came back from two down to get something - a 2-2 draw. 

Over the next few seasons I'd have averaged no more than a game or two a season as my dad played golf on Saturdays.  I first became a regular in the 1981/82 season.   I kind of fell away from it for a couple of years around 84/85 ish before returning to the fold.   I lived away from Dumfries for a decade or so between 88 and 98 though, so only really attended when visiting.  

Since moving back to town, I've been a Palmerston regular, but don't often go to away games.

Didn't manage to see more than 5 minutes of it but I believe the Reserves were unlucky to lose 2-1 to two late goals to Rangers today. Connor Murray scored early on for us. An inexperienced line up in which Murray was comfortably the most senior player involved for us. Rangers apparently fielded a team of mostly u21 internationals. Great effort from our young team.

They will benefit hugely from every game this season .

Very good game today the experience and fitness of Rangers told in the end, the young Queens lads done well against a good Rangers team, Leighfield had couple of great saves and poor finishing kept game at 1-0 for a long time. Unfortunately the young team is like the first team and short in numbers, yes players to fill shirts but no more. Feel for the management at all levels.

To bring the chat back to a miserable level, I have to say I'm getting to Monkey Tennis levels of irritation just now. Not with the sign but with the clock. Do we not have any gigantic batteries for it?

My first game, and that of my eldest boy, was that 7-0 tanking referred to above.  A good character-building start for any Queens supporter.

Yes, the clock was bugging me on Saturday too.

As for the sign though, it's been a delight so far this season.  I saw it just now and it's been updated from the weekend. 

Thank God for that clock.

Its broken, it doesnt run on batteries. It needs a cherry picker and a specialist repair man to be available at the same time. Not logistically that easy to organise.

There was a cherry picker at that end during last week too.   I was hopeful that the clock was being addressed when I saw it.  They must have just been adding the new Oakbank boards though.

Great to see Dobbie there supporting the reserves today. 

Yes it was, Sure he is part of the reserves coaching staff, and was on the pitch helping out the strikers before the match too. Gary Naysmith also in attendance helping, Eddie, Dobbie and Davie Mathieson.

I believe my first game was an away game at Dens in 96 or so. I don't remember it, but I'm told we went 1-0 up thanks to a screamer then lost 3(?)-1. At that point I was 4 years old and we lived closer to Forfar. I remember going to Brechin and Forfar a few times (then season we wore the blue and yellow stripes seems to stick in my mind). After a move down south then back, I really got in to following us in 2002, just after the promotion. Lived in Perth (which is the closest I've ever lived to Palmerston) since then so mainly been away games. Was 10-15 games a season up until I started refereeing locally here 5 years ago, so now it's 3 or 4 if I'm lucky. In fact, I've only been to Palmerston 3 times in the last 4 years.

3rd September 1966, we beat Dumbarton 4-2, Jimmy Davison scored twice (I think), I watched the game from the ‘ Coo shed ‘.

That’s 52 years almost,  I have seen some epic games and some unbelievable dross, but I have never lost the faith. 

But I’ll say this, for all our current worries, we are light years ahead of where we were in the dark days of some of the 80s.

I’ll be at Falkirk on Saturday....
