    1969 pictures

    I see there are some memories on another thread about the coo shed, however who remembers our 50th anniversary in 1969 ? I was 15 back then and remember us playing Celtic to commemorate that anniversary.
    It was more a Queens select but a great match, QOS scored first and my brother was still celebrating when I told him to calm down , as it was 1-1. Think the final score was 5-2 to Celtic , but a fun night with some great football played.
    Any pictures available and has anybody got a better memory than I have now.

    A year before I was born Douglas. Ftivano might well have some memories of the game.

    Think it might actually have been in 1968/69 season , so could have been 1968, memory not so good.

    That was the Jimmy McKinnel testimonial game programme. Queens Golden Jubilee match was August 1969 versus
    Carlisle Utd which Queens won 3 - 2 with goals by Welsh, McIntyre and Mitchell - attendance 4.500 - admission to
    terracing 3 shillings - 15p nowadays

    It must be an age thing , always thought the Celtic game was our 50th . Hopefully we will get someone better (more attractive) than Carlisle for our 100th , can't believe there is no word on who we are playing. Knowing the comments about our chairman , it might be the Gers lol.

    The above is the programne front cover for a game that Queens played in Mar 70 at Palmerston against the Russian touring team Kharkov Metallist. This was the first game that Queens had played against a team from outwith the British Isles since we won the European Cup in 1936.

    I`m old enough (60)to have been at all 3 of the games being discussed here. I don`t remember that much about them. I think we beat the Russian team 2-0 but would have to check that.

    Yes Dobs I was at the game and Ches got both goals - although at that time they played in a Russian league Kharkov is in the Ukraine and the version of the team that we played then went bust a few years ago.

    Thanks. We of course regarded them as "Russian or Soviet" at the time but as you say Ukraine is correct.

    I was at the Carlisle (Jimmy Welsh.... now there was a great character) and Kharkov matches. The translator for the Russian match was JZ Graham a teacher at the Academy. (sorry for being Albertzish)

    Dream on. Not many big teams are interested in playing on the plastic surface.

    Re the Challenge match against Celtic, I remember this, I think the score was 5-1, and my (hazy) recollection was that Celtic put a strong team out. I was actually ballboy at the time, I recall peering in at the Celtic changing room and Jimmie Johnston winking at us!!
    Being ballboy had a little bit of status then, you certainly got a grand view of the game. We had to keep moving up and down the park because if we stood in one place too long the fans would moan at us to get out of the way (at least in the better attended games, I think the crowds were still reasonable then). One downside of the job was that when the ball was booted out the pack which was a fairly regular occurrence, we had to earn our 2 shillings and go and get it. Back then, once you brought the original ball back it replaced the 'substitute' ball, because I think the rule was that they had try to use the original ball throughout, a somewhat pointless rule as far as I could see.
    Happy days....
