St Blane's Football Team 1977

Sent in By Terry McCrory

Top left to right MR Gologly, (teacher & manager)   players: George McLaughlin, Brian Hughes, Paul Ducie, Brian Fallon (goalie), Stephen McHugh, Patrick Gallacher, Peter Bonner, & Mr O’Niell (Headmaster)

Bottom Row left to right: Neil McArthur, Paul Murray, Terry McCrory, Stephen Kelly, Mark O’Farrell, Stephen Fallon.

We went undefeated through the full season, we won the League Shield the County Cup, which we won 1-0 at Cambuslang Rangers park. I think Stephen Kelly scored the goal from halfway line I ran in on their goalie and ducked at the last second, needless to say the ball went in the net. I remember back at the school gates they put irn bru in the cup and we all got a drink.

We shared the Shinwell cup 6 months each with St Peters after 2-2 draw in 90 min then 3-3 aet.

The ref and the teachers decided to share the cup and not have penalties because it was a right grudge match and they thought that there would be fighting after the match.

The two Fallon boys, are the sons of John Fallon who played for Glasgow Celtic.
