Fife FA Centenary 1982

Post by Gordon Baird » Wed Sep 25, 2013 8:53 am

Does anyone have any details on a match at East End Park on 19 May 1982 between a Fife Select and the Scottish Semi-Professional team?
As well as being part of the preparations for the Four Nations tournament in Aberdeen, it was supposed to celebrate the centenary of the Fife FA. There's nothing in the local paper or in the London Hearts archive (which is a fantastic source, incidentally - thank you).

Something about your post rang a very distant bell.

Checked back and I was at the game on the date concerned. Score was 1-0 to the Fife Select.

Thanks for that, I was beginning to think that it hadn't been played.
I still wouldn't mind a few details, so if anyone's got access to the Courier archive.....

I noted the attendance as 300 approx but didn't keep any other details.

Very belated reply - I've found a reference to this game in a programme. The winning goal was scored by Gordon Scott of East fife.
