Roddy McKenzie, Eamonn Bannon, Lloyd Haddow, Graeme Armstrong, George McGeachie, Adrian Sprott, Paul Hunter, James Fisher (Thomas Steel), Miller Mathieson, Gareth Hutchison, Ian Little.

Don't know which player signed for Thornton Hibs but Bannon, McGeachie & Steel are the most likely. The first two were definitely at the veteran stage and finished playing league football a year or so later and Steel also seems to have vanished from the league scene around the same time.

I was at this game and still shudder at the ignominy of being taunted by a busload of Stenhousemuir fans while trudging back into downtown Perth afterwards!

Eamonn Bannon left the following summer to become manager at Falkirk and after that resumed playing at Spartans, so I'm fairly sure it's not him. Tommy Steel went to Ayr (that'll be David's idea of disappearing, I suppose) and then Irvine Meadow. McGeachie apparently retired when he left Stenny but not beyond the bounds of possibilty he could have come back in the juniors.

Can't find any other potential candidates for the Thornton link...

Out of the team which hammered Dundee United 0-0, Paul Hunter seem to be the best bet to have played for Thornton Hibs as he is a Fifer. Paul played for a few season after the cup win before going missing due to work I think. The club couldn't make contact with him for the 10 year after dinner. I do remember there was a connection with the clubs, but what it is I can not remember.
