I bumped into some family members from the dark side of the water earlier ---- fae Penicuik no less. The Hibees had arrived complete with my uncle Andrew (who in his youth in nineteen canteen played for Steelend Juniors. He was under the manager of a well known Pars man, Joe Nelson. My uncle had a fiery temper on field --- but arguing with his own players only saw him sent to the stand five meens after he was on the pitch!)
It`s a beautiful sunny day here at East End Park. There`s a strong breeze too but it`s nice.
