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.924.jpg

Think that was 3-0 versus St.Mirren to win league 1982. From memory I'm sure we played them a week earlier and could only draw 0-0. Think attendance for 3-0 game was given as 42,000!!!.in a ground with a capacity of 67,000...aye right!!

A teenage Andy Walker shielding the ball from the Clydebank player whose name escapes me, the name Brian Maher springs to mind but probably wrong.

QPFC clock installed to mark their centenary.

 

QPFC clock in 1968.jpg

The clock is part of the Hampden museum's collection these days and was last on public display in 2017 when there was an exhibit for QP's 150th birthday. It's seriously heavy! At the top of the picture you can just make out the bottom half of an old QP badge engraved in sandstone - when the old main stand came down the saved that and put it into the wall at Lesser Hampden outside the pavilion. Still looks good.

There was a John Maher in the team, but Stewart Auld sprang to my mind when I saw this photo.

Any information happily received on this picture, from the early 60s. The players closest to the ball are Bobby Carroll and Mike Sutton, dad of John and Chris, at St Mirren Park in a match between the hosts and Norwich City. Pitch looks very dry, was it a pre-season friendly?

I thought it looked a bit like Brian Wright but wasn't sure if he was actually at Motherwell at the time.
Wright, a good player, was signed 18 months later.

St Mirren played a Paisley Charity Cup match every pre season from 59-68. Some great old names graced the LS turf. Denis Law , Chopper Harris , Bobby Tambling , Gordon Banks , Terry Venables , Ron Davies , Jimmy Armfield etc
