    Queen of the South 1960

    Can anyone name all these Queens players?

    I only know Bobby Black (front centre) and I think Jim Kerr is in the back row.

    Defo a reserve team and i am sure that's Irving Gracie in goals. Probably a Southern Counties Cup final as it looks like Johnny Wallace is the manager / trainer on the left.

    Thanks. Gracie's granddaughter posted the photo to the Old Dumfries page on Facebook.

    Not really surprised that no - one else in the team has been named as it is 60 years ago and the players will all be approaching
    late 70s I would guess - the late Jim Kerr was 18 in 1960 for instance.

    Would Ian Black know most of the players?

    Confirmed by Queens top historian Ian Black that it is in fact a Southern Counties Cup final namely the Potts Cup of 1959 - 60 (a very modest trophy in size). The line - up is:- Wallace trainer, Kerr, Anderson, Dunese, Gracie, Irving, Scott, McKinnel jnr. Front:- Armstrong, Dunlop, Black, Brown, Pinkerton.

    Replace Irving with Thomson (my error). Apart from Kerr and Black who of course went on to be legendary Doonhamers - Dunese, Dunlop and Pinkerton all played a few games in the first eleven.
