Memory Photo #1

Thu, 5th Jun 2003 12:00am
Another new feature to the website for the summer months is the "Memory Photo" series, featuring images from different events in Clyde's history. Below, Clyde line-up at Firhill before the 1989 Glasgow Cup final...

DETAILS: Monday 15th May 1989, Partick Thistle 2 Clyde 0.

LINE-UP: (Back row l to r) Brian McGuinness, Michael Nolan, Chico Speirs, John Mailer, Derek Atkins and Keith Knox. (Front row l to r) Billy Reid, Andy Willock, Jim Rooney, John Devlin and Colin McGlashan.

This match is unique in the sense that it was the last ever Glasgow Cup to be competed for by the senior sides of the five Glasgow clubs. Starting in season 1989/90, the competition was played at under 18 level and has continued in this format ever since. The change to a youth competition was a result of the "Old Firm" being unable to find free dates in their fixture schedule to compete for the World's second oldest trophy.


Do you have a photo that you would like to share with the rest of the Clyde support during this series? Please e-mail Graham@clydefc.co.uk if you do...
