Armadale Thistle v Bo'ness United Scottish Cup c. 1989

Post by Gorgiewave » Tue Sep 14, 2010 9:07 pm

Can anybody give details of the above match? It was Scottish Cup I think, though it may have been another cup. No idea of the score. The memorable thing about it was that Armadale played in red so my grandpa and I quite erronesouly cheered on Bo'ness.

Which would explain you being in Madrid rather than West Lothian. They do tend to take a long time to forgive in those parts. I recall a friend of mine from Bathgate who would never mention the word 'Bo'ness' without prefacing it with 'Dirty' and insisting this was on account of their style of play - in the 1920s!

My dad and I had a bad day at Ballingry last month. The score had seemed to go: goal for Armadale in first half, another in second half, late penalty for Ballingry. Result: good away win. Then on the way out all the Armadale people were muttering about how they should never have let a lead slip like that, tnhey thatcher should never have got two penalties, the ref's a homer (no "modern" connotations to that word), etc.

My dad - football fan since about 1957 - and I had both missed a goal in the same match.

Has anybody ever done that without realising? Not arriving late or being caught in the toilet, just clean missed a goal?

Ballingray's tangerine suggests their founders supported a certain SPL club. Can anybody confirm?

:?

How on earth could you both miss a penalty being awarded, taken and scored? I could have just about understood not noticing a goal had been scored (I've seen the other way on occasion when people didn't realise one had been ruled out) but given that you say they were both penalties I'm flabbergasted.

Can't see any reason for an affinity between a Fife junior side and Dundee United. I presume that's who you meant.

I don't know either, unless it was within the first minute when we were still listening to the radio in the car. But we still didn't hear anything or see the aftermath or anything.

That is what I meant, black shorts as well. Though no necessary connection exists, I thought the combination is rare enough to be suspicious. Founded in 1956 IIRC so one would have to exclude a founder copying his "big team" - AFAIK, United were not associated with tangerine by then, using a green away strip. Is that right?

Indeed it is: http://www.historicalkits.co.uk/Scottis ... United.htm

Still in black and white in them days. Didn't go tangerine until the advent of Spanish package holidays and ambre solaire in 1969.
