Seems we're wasting our time celebrating our 150th Anniversary on December 23rd this year.  1879 ?  Who made this thing ?

Abu Hamza by the look of it.

A combination we will never, ever see again.

Well, that’s hardly surprising considering one of those clubs no longer exists

30 years too late but I had a double of Kane and Beedie so you could have completed Hibs.

If a butterfly's wings can cause a hurricane I dare not think how my life might have turned out with a completed Hibs page !

That's Morrisons on Hope Street, isn't it. I still maintain Falkirk should have made every attempt to stay in that part of town, a huge area which could easily have housed a bigger ground to that they are now in, while leaving space for other lucrative trade ventures (to the club).

But it appears the custodians didn't trust their potential and business sense enough.

That's pretty heartbreaking.

I think several clubs have suffered lots on account of grounds being modified or replaced.

 

Falkirk have lost more than most though.  Airdrie too, I suppose.

Hate to pick on Falkirk further but...

25 years ago tonight 🙂

 

I was pleased when Killie won the final, but recall being furious at the referee appointment for the semi (Killie v United), who, I looked it up, was the late Jim McCluskey. My anger, which has now dissipated, was based on poor Jim living a few miles from Kilmarnock, and over 100 miles from Dundee.

Nonetheless, I wish we had referees of his abilities today.

Programme from Hearts v Third Lanark on 9th January 1965. Hearts won 3-1. A fairly solid Hearts team there, going by the team lines, with no obvious stars, apart from maybe Jim Cruickshank and Alan Gordon, perhaps. Willie Wallace didn't become a "star" until he went to Parkhead, imo. Evan Williams, the Thirds goalie, also ended up at Celtic. Doug Baillie at centre half. The Kilgannon up front is perhaps a brother of Johnny and Jim Kilgannon. Looking at the league table, despite having only 7 points from 18 points, Thirds were by no means isolated at the bottom of the table, only a point behind Airdrie - with a game in hand - and 3 behind Dundee United. Alas, Thirds were at the start of a notorious run of 21 successive league defeats, interrupted by a 5-1 Scottish Cup win at Telford Street, followed by 2 draws and a defeat in the second replay from eventual finalists, Dunfermline Athletic, in the next round. Third Lanark then went on to lose their opening 5 sectional Summer Cup games before signing off with a 5-2 win over Airdrie.

Queen's Park v Rangers, top flight programme from season 1956/57, one of @HibeeJibee's fabled Glasgow Monday games. Queen's finished a creditable 13th that season (out of 18), with 29 points, 5 clear of 17th placed Dunfermline, although they crashed and burned the following season, finishing bottom with only 9 points, 19 off safety. The match finished Queen's Park 4 Rangers 6, in front of nearly 34,000 fans.

Seems this was Easter Monday 1957 so probably explains the healthy crowd.

That's Bill (Willie) Kilgannon, who Thirds signed from Celtic: a wing half. I think there were two Johnny Kilgannons and two Jim Kilgannons, all were senior players at one time or another. Bill's brother John was killed in a traffic accident later in the 'sixties, Jim had also been involved in the crash.

The other two Kilgannons were cousins.

The Kilgannon who died in the crash had played for a time for Luton in the top division in England.

I think all five Kilgannons were from Bannockburn.

Thanks, I knew it wasn't Johnny or Jim but I couldn't trace the third brother. John Kilgannon scored the winner for Ayr United at Pittodrie in the Scottish Cup in 1964.

Welcome to our world.

I mind one season , late 1980s we played Dundee United in the Scottish Cup, the first game at a Pittodrie , then two replays at Tannadice.  The ref for all three games was Bob Valentine of Dundee.

I wonder what Bob’s thought process was when it came to the venue for the second replay being picked.
