Bottom Row left to right Mark McArthur, Paul Murray, Terrence McGrory, Stephen Spiers, Mark McAdams & 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 Terry McGrory 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.

Fantastic picture and brings back many happy memories.  I captained the team – caption should read Stephen Kelly not Stephen Speirs – and scored the goal  from halfway in the County Cup final.  George is correct about the Shinwell cup – I think he scored a brilliant goal that was disallowed and the headie decided we should share the cup!!!
