Re: Fife Cup Final, 1968

Someone who was taken to the game as a youngster remembers it happening and is looking for confirmation of the players involved. He said that they 'received a great ovation but unfortunately attitudes have changed since then'. True enough.

Fife Cup Final, 1968

This is a question for fans of Raith Rovers and East Fife.
Can any of you recall two Dunfermline players, perhaps Lunn and Thomson, parading the Scottish Cup around Stark's Park during half-time of the second leg on 4 May?

Re: League games on Fridays - TV Trend

The evening before the England match at Hampden - I had it in one set of records but not the other.
Thanks for that.

Re: League games on Fridays - TV Trend

Dunfermline's home match against St. Johnstone was played on Wednesday, 16 April 1986. I take it that you've just listed current clubs, as I've also got Dunfermline as playing the following away fixtures on a Friday - Third Lanark (4-0) on 3 May 1963 (the evening before the cup final), and Meadowban...

Re: 50 Years since Beeching's report, Impact on SF ?

Forfar's station was closed as a result of the Beeching cuts. Their nearest is now fourteen miles away in Arbroath - a football special wouldn't be a lot of good in their case.

Re: Scottish Footballers Roll of Honour

Okay. I've not checked these players on Litster's disc, I'm just going by what was reported in the newspaper at the time, though one or two definitely played in the SFL. John Frail - Private, 1st Black Watch, killed in action 9 May 1915. Played for Lochgelly United, Hibs (a loan spell I think), Dunf...

Re: Scottish Footballers Roll of Honour

Alan, are you looking for Scottish League players alone or those who played in others such as the Northern or Central Leagues?

Re: RONALD K. MacDONALD

As you noted, the issue is confused by Dunfermline having two players of the same name and the newspapers' refusal to spell each of them correctly. I'm pretty sure that Ron MacDonald's two appearances were a 1-2 win at Kilmarnock on 30 October and a 1-1 draw at Arbroath on 6 November. To further mud...

Re: Duncan McKay Ronaldson

It was Bury who held his registration, all his subsequent clubs prior to Dunfermline were in the Southern League. Due to his experience he was nicknamed 'Daddy' at East End Park - he was considered the 'brains' of the forward line, 'one of the most artistic and clever players' to have played for the...

Charlie was born on 7 July 1934, so he was 79 when he passed away on Friday.

A Pars legend. RIP.

Re: Jerry Kelly, Ayr & Everton

I should probably have added that it was his great granddaughter who contacted Dunfermline Athletic asking for information, so I would imagine she knows that kind of detail.
I didn't though, and it saves me asking her, so thanks for that.

Jerry Kelly, Ayr & Everton

I'm looking for additional information about a player by the name of Jeremiah (Jerry) Kelly. Born in Hamilton in 1900, he played for Blantyre Victoria, Ayr United, Everton and Carlisle United up until 1931. From then until 1934 he played for a club called Dublin Dolphins, spending the summer of 1933...

Re: Fife FA Centenary 1982

Thanks for that, I was beginning to think that it hadn't been played.
I still wouldn't mind a few details, so if anyone's got access to the Courier archive.....
