First Team Debuts

Milestones

In a section comprising Celtic, Dumbarton and Arbroath, we had to win at Boghead to give us any hope of qualifying, but the picture was bleak at half-time. After a bright start, we were taken aback by an lan Wallace header. It took us until the 69th minute to get back on level terms. From a free-kick just outside the box George Fleming teed the ball up for Alec Reid to hammer in an unstoppable low drive. Six minutes from the end Paul Sturrock sent over a perfect cross for Paul Hegarty to bullet in the winner
