Remember it well. 

This was the only day @Auld Heid posted something interesting, and @Specky first managed to spell a word with more than 5 letters correctly, albeit on the Bo’ness thread.

Such was the magnitude of the posts, players were late for games all over the country having stopped to read the aforementioned posts, read them again they were so good, then text all their mates to say ‘Have you seen Auld Heid and Specky’s posts??’

Not buying the first part, still hasn't happened for Specky.  Auld heid can manage the word Follow as long as it's repeated.

It was  a Kelty match but it was the team held up on bridge.  The supporters bus breakdown happened before that, I'm sure.

Cup Final time in 1955 and it's the St Michael's Cup (League Cup) against Bathgate Thistle, held at Easter Road.  The BU's retained the trophy with a 4-1 win.  Three Jims shared the goals.  Boyd with a double, Carruthers & Harrower.  The crowd was reported as fair-sized considering the wet weather conditions.

The team was: Ronald, Mitchell, Donnelly, Hogg, McBlain, Meiklejohn, Boyd, Jarvie, Thomson, Carruthers, Harrower

Another Kelty teaser, quite easy, back to Championship year 2014.  Which two former SuperLeague winners of ours lined up against us in a 0-0 draw over there?

This was the day of the walking dead on the way to Kelty when the bus broke down and we had the sight of BU supporters walking up the m-way,some guys got a lift but got mistaken for Rangers fans and were heading to Dunfermline

A teaser, rarely featuring a defeat.  Who scored the winner in the 1-0 defeat to Dalkeith, in the East of Scotland Cup 2013?

The teaser is from another game against Arniston, this time a 2014 Fife & Lothians Cup tie, won 2-0.  Who was the young sub making his debut?
