  1. Very sad to hear. Was delighted when I heard we'd signed him as he was always scoring against us (his cup replay winner for Hearts at Scapa prompted us to bring Roy Baines back). Was lucky enough to speak to him at the '79 night - he spoke very highly of Bobby Thomson. I'd recently finished reading "Ghosts of Cathkin Park" which he'd made contributions to.
  2. Seedings. Due to some European venture we won’t be getting Motherwell. https://spfl.co.uk/news/premier-sports-cup-seedings If you can’t be bothered clicking - there are 5 pots this season. Draw tomorrow. Pot 1 1 Ross County 2 Livingston 3 Hibernian 4 St Mirren 5 Aberdeen 6 St Johnstone 7 Dundee 8 Kilmarnock Pot 2 9 Arbroath 10 Inverness Caledonian Thistle 11 Partick Thistle 12 Raith Rovers 13 Hamilton Academical 14 Morton 15 Ayr United 16 Dunfermline Athletic Pot 3 17 Queen of the South 18 Cove Rangers 19 Airdrieonians 20 Montrose 21 Queen's Park 22 Alloa Athletic 23 Falkirk 24 Peterhead Pot 4 25 Clyde 26 Dumbarton 27 East Fife 28 Kelty Hearts 29 Forfar Athletic 30 Annan Athletic 31 Edinburgh City 32 Stenhousemuir Pot 5 33 Stranraer 34 Stirling Albion 35 Albion Rovers 36 Elgin City 37 Cowdenbeath 38 Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic 39 Fraserburgh 40 Buckie Thistle
  3. A late shuffle to try to get a couple of goals only for the opposition to score two identical goals instead. Lovrly stuff. GIRFUY Dodds.
  4. Saturday 7th May - seconds after the referee blew for full time at East End Park.
  5. Can't help but wonder if this was the plan all along...
  6. Could be a testimonial trophy - it used to be a thing to have a trophy for the winners of these games (and maybe still is). Allan McGraw's trophy had to be awarded to us after we beat St. Mirren on penalites in 1989 (the skunks forgot to bring the Renfrewshire Cup down with them). We should have Jimmy Simpson's trophy too (although Rangers won that game 5-2, Graeme Souness handed the cup back after the game). Or maybe it's the Arran Tournament and we were never allowed back on the ferries to return it. 😁
  7. I love stuff like this. 1882-83 we needed 5 games played over 3 months before eventually getting put out of the 2nd round by Thornliebank - 2-2 at Scapa. 3-1 away win but they protested about us having an ineligible player. 2-1 win at Scapa - but they protested about the poor light. 2-2 at Scapa - we protested about one of their goals AND the game ending too early (so the next game was moved to a neutral ground. 1-3 defeat at Cartbank, Johnstone. We also stuffed Howwood 21-0 at Scapa in the 2nd round in 1886. Unsurprisingly, there is no record of the scorers. I've yet to find a bigger Morton win. The Greenock Charity Cup was just as chaotic with (now defunct) local sides taking the huff and refusing replays.
  8. Some of the reports I’ve unearthed covering Renfrewshire Cup games before 1900 are incredible. Games being replayed after protests about goals being allowed to stand (or not) poor light, crap pitch conditions (not to mention the odd riot and pitch invasion) and ties needing 4 or 5 replays to settle them. Abercorn and Port Glasgow were particularly huffy in those days, with one Morton v Port tie constantly interrupted by Port fans, forcing a number of abandoned games (with Morton leading) - until the tie finally produced a game which ended with a Port win. Also a good time to remember that St. Mirren withdrew in the 1990s after losing a home semi final 1-0 to Greenock amateurs Bellaire.
  9. Doyle, McHugh, Kilday and Quitongo all help Queen’s Park beat Airdrie in the play off final.
  10. Mark McGhee leaving Dundee after a job well done. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61450858
  11. Remember seeing us cuff Oldham 3-0 at Scapa in the Anglo-Scottish Cup. Lost the return leg 4-0.
  12. 6-5 now All over. Queen's Park v Airdrie in the final.
  13. The other play off has been a belter - Montrose were 4-1 up on aggregate and Airdrie have somehow forced extra time. Dunfermline are relegated.
  14. All went south when Efe was sent off in the 2nd half.
  15. If he takes Goodwillie with him, P&B will probably explode.
  16. No more regionalisation of the group stage - finally. https://spfl.co.uk/news/premier-sports-cup-202223 Hopefully the further trips can be put on the weekend dates.
  17. At the moment Falkirk have dropped to 7th in League 1.
  18. I was forgetting that they have to wait for the 3rd v 4th game.
  19. Stefan McCluskey got a hat-trick for Forfar last weekend and made team of the day. He was sent off today.
