My favourite memory was the pitch invasion after the 2-2 home draw to Clyde in '84 that saw us promoted to the Premier.

No video exists.  Or Cine film, for that matter.

The New Saints weekend is so indelibly stamped on my psyche that every time I hear Oswestry mentioned on the telly, radio or whatever I get a mental 'ding'. And in a great way.

I have been missing football during these troubling times so have been trawling through the planner on the sky box.
Just finished watching the New Saints away game and both legs of the play-off against Airdrie.
Absolutely brilliant.
The Handling and Froxy goals against TNS!
Making Airdrie look like an absolute gang in the second leg of the play-off.  What a team of heroes, and what a performance from big Tony Wallace.
Good to see some youthful Sons P&B ers in raptures too!

Clearly you would enjoy it and I was less pleased in the other stand, but I wonder how likely it is to find it on the Sky planner, as I dislike watching "Non Scottish" old games.

It's only on my planner because I recorded the games on the day.

The New Saints game is still on my planner as well. I refuse to delete it.

I should have spotted the word planner! I realised eventually that it was BBC Alba. I did record them at the time but unlike you I got no pleasure from reruns. Spotted some you tube stuff about those games and it could be interesting to see who played for the teams. I did notice that it was quite a big crowd in the away stand-changed days for both us now. Take care

I think Jan Vojacek uploaded both full games to YouTube a few years ago.

He did because I rewatched the goals and the conga last night when it was mentioned.

I'm now doing the same. That pass from Agnew for Dargo's first was sublime. The strip is honking.

That 1964 picture has always intrigued me. We didn’t start using the white strip on a regular basis until 1970 so why is there a picture from 64 with that strip? Was it the change kit that season?

Indeed. The 'historicalkits' site shows us wearing gold shirt with thin vertical black stripes & black shorts until about 1969.

Could have been an away outfit in 64/65, it's cool as f*** anyway.

The snudge inspired conga? I think I done the Maradona into the camera celebration aswell. Maradona was high on ching (probably).

It was the change strip, for a few seasons I think. In those days in Scotland it was the home side that changed if there was a colour clash.

Indeed. That strip only seen when East Fife, Alloa or Albion Rovers visited Boghead. Memories of Hugh Harra and Ronnie Curran: two of the hardest b***ards ever to don a Sons jersey. They threw away the mould when these two retired!

On December 5th 1964 we drew 4-4 with Berwick in an astonishing game in which I'm sure we came from 0-4 down, culminating with a very late Chic Halliday penalty equaliser.

My memory might be playing tricks but I'm pretty certain we wore the white strip that day, one of its first outings.

You're correct OKIII! Had forgotten about poor old Berwick Rangers since their sad demise. I remember the 4v4 game well. 0v4 down midway through the second half, then a double from Drew Nelson, goal by Tommy Reynolds and last minute penalty from Chic Halliday rescued a point. A memorable match in an otherwise mediocre season.
