Programmes

These are just a couple of programmes from my own collection. I have chosen them specifically as they are some of the best matches I have ever seen the Jags play in.

Inverness Thistle 3-0 Kilmarnock

Scottish Cup 3rd round, February 9th 1985.

I was only 12 years old when I watched this match but the result and the 2500 crowd made it a match I will never forget.

Dave Milroy put Jags 1-0 up with a header in the 36th minute. In 79 mins. it was 2-0 with Gordon Hay knocking the ball over the head of the Killie keeper and then heading it into the open goal. The third goal came in the 84th minute from Brian Fraser, substitute only on the park for a few seconds, when he fired the ball into the net from a tight angle.

Unsurprisingly the Killie fans were none to happy with their teams performance and after the final whistle had blown they proceeded to throw their scarves onto the pitch in disgust! The sight of all those blue and white scarves strewn over the Kingsmills Park turf was a sight to behold........it was just like playing against Caley !!!

 

Celtic 6-0 Inverness Thistle

Scottish Cup 4th round, February 16th 1985.

This programme is one of my most prized posessions as it's signed by both teams.

Forget the result of this match we lost 6-0 with 6 breakaway goals through Frank McGarvey, a Paul McStay hat-trick, Murdo MacLeod and Mo Johnston, but the experience of being at a 'big' stadium for the first time made it a great day out for myself. We even made it back up the A9 in time to see the match replayed on Sportscene that night !

We never really stood a chance against the quality players in the Celtic side but the Jags didn't 'sit-in' and try to defend, instead we tried to have a go. The Celtic fans seemed to appreciate this fact and I will never forget the sound of the old "Jungle" at Celtic Park singing "...Thistle, Thistle...." after the final whistle blew!

The photograph on the right is provided for display on the site courtesy of Jim Oliver who played for Jags against Celtic that day. It's the original Celtic Team Sheet from the match and Jim has it framed proudly in Red 'n' Black.
