Sloan

Robert Sloan it was!  I remember the defence doing a great job in front of him as he had little to deal with.

May 17th

1947 and at the 3rd time of asking, Renfrew were finally defeated 4-2.  The headline in the Sunday Post read "Picture goal was 'Final' passport", referring to the 3rd goal  at the end of a brilliant move.  The scorers were John McGowan, Jim McLean & a double from Willie Dickson.  The attendance at Hampden was 54,414, meaning over 112,000 had seen the 3 games!

The team was: Stanners, W. Mitchell, Brash, Paton, Stewart, McKie, McGowan, Dickson, McLean, Pryde, Mills

1968 now and a special event to mark the tercentenary of Bo'ness gaining burgh status.  A game at Newtown against a Junior Scotland team, including a young Kenny Dalglish.  The star man on the day wore BU colours however and was striker Benny McGuire, who notched two in a 3-1 win.  The other scorer was not recorded.

The team was: Crawford, McCandless, McGuinness, McMeechan, Gray, McQueen, Bernard, Thomson, McGuire, Sneddon, Watson sub Heenan

2011 for a teaser now and the scene similar to recent times as the squad was hit by injuries and suspensions.  For a visit to Musselburgh, ending 2-2. only 12 outfield players were fit.  Who was the unlikely player wearing the number 9 jersey?

May 20th

Forward in time to 1994 and a Brown Cup semi-final away to Ormiston Primrose.  No great difficulties, surprisingly, as the BU's won 4-0 with undoubted star of the show being hat-trick hero Paul McLaren.  Gary Wilcox getting the other goal.

The team was: Kirkwood, Hoggan, Meldrum, Dunleavie, Malloy, Cheape, Dalton, Wilcox, Gallagher, Burns, McLaren
