FWIW, nearly 58 years as a serious follower, almost from the time Stein joined and kept us up.
Not always at games when I was younger, as I couldn't afford much, until I was earning, but always behind the team.

Many of my peers were Old Firm or Hearts fans, so I almost got a wee lift by bucking the trend.

Not as long as you Marv !!!

First game was the 1961 cup final as a birthday treat, when I was still in Primary.

I was somewhat upset with Maw & Paw for not letting me go to the Tuesday night replay - so what if Wednesday was a normal school day !!!

Don't get worked up and upset like back then though, my Mum never did get it - " just 22 men kicking a ball about" she would say.

Aye. You've a lot of suffering to go through yet.

But hopefully some of the good days too. The days to Hampden for semis and finals are unforgettable, as we're some of the matches in the 60s and with Leishman, Bert Paton later on.

My first game was a 0-0 draw v Ayr 32 years ago at the age of 6.Still came back for more.Got my first season ticket in my early teens and started to go home and away on various supporters buses. Loved the atmosphere in the terracing back in those days. I feel for the younger generation that never got to experience that. The whole day out seemed better then win, lose or draw.Some great memories.

I had to stop going for about 10 years as I was playing myself.When I stopped playing I started to attend games again but never had a season ticket since.Even if I don't go always look for the result at 4.45pm on a Saturday.

65+ years.

Can’t remember my first home game but I do remember my first away game:
2-2 draw at Stenhousemuir. Went with my father on his motor bike.

Just checked Parsdatabase for the date and it was 24th October 1953.
Exactly 65 years ago today!

Also remember being on the pitch when we were first promoted to Div 1 in season 54/55.

Got my first scarf for my 10th birthday and I still have it 63 years later. More black and yellow now! It’s first outing on my birthday was against Hibs in the league cup. Remember running on the pitch at the Cowden end as the teams came out(as we did then) and got Tommy Younger’s autograph.

Cant remember what I did last week though!

52 years. Started going regularly when we were in the second division 72/73. Never missed a game home or away that season on the kelty supporters bus. Later went on pitbauchlie, watering hole and Bruce field bus at different times. Been to Larne, Ballymena, Bangor, Shepshed, Chesterfield Bordeaux for friendlies. Also Balintore, Forres and Stornoway in Scotland. I attended Iceland and Sweden and recently Borehamwood. Dunfermlines always been a huge part of my life and I've visited places I'd probably never have been too. Made some great pals and still go regularly

My first ever game was a certain cup final in 68 although was brought up in a Pars supporting family. I can't remember what my first game at EEP was oddly enough - lived in Glasgow then Ayrshire in the 60/70s.

So going to games for 50 years ( doesn't seem like that) - seen some wretched Pars teams particularly in the late 70s early 80s and some brilliant teams - I particularly liked the young guns in about 72-75 and then of course Big Jims teams from 85 onwards . Had some wonderful days out following that side.

Respect to anyone who started following the Pars in late 60s early 70s as the rapid decline into mediocrity from 70 onwards was very hard to watch

My earliest memory of going to a Pars' match was a game against Rangers which ended 1-0. My Dad, who wasn't a regular at EEP (in fact I always thought he had a soft spot for the Gers), took me. Checking the Pars Database this may have been a game on 25/04/56 which was our fifth game undefeated in a wee run which probably saved us from relegation as we finished third bottom that season. Charlie Dickson scored the goal. Rangers won the League so it was a big win.

I don't think I went regularly until the 1960/61 season which was also my first year at DHS when just about everyone who was interested in football supported the Pars.

60 plus used to clean the terracing when big Jock was the manager. I can mind he used to give us bottles of coke and let's us play on the snooker table after we were finished .it was brilliant got free entry to home games and we stood behind the dugouts after the new stand was built.A great memory was the faces on the Spaniards faces when we were so close to knocking Valencia out.

65+ years.

Can’t remember my first home game but I do remember my first away game:
2-2 draw at Stenhousemuir. Went with my father on his motor bike.

Just checked Parsdatabase for the date and it was 24th October 1953.
Exactly 65 years ago today!


Brilliant. Happy anniversary!

44 years. I remember walking up through the crowds in the park going to the John Lunn testimonial.
In the late 70s when Harry Melrose was manager I used to go & watch training and got to play snooker with the players.

60 plus used to clean the terracing when big Jock was the manager. I can mind he used to give us bottles of coke and let's us play on the snooker table after we were finished .it was brilliant got free entry to home games and we stood behind the dugouts after the new stand was built.A great memory was the faces on the Spaniards faces when we were so close to knocking Valencia out.


Hi Freddie. Kenny here. I was one o the terracing cleaners as well. Willie Craig fae Kelty organised it. Used to play fitba with you as well.

First game I went to just have been in 1985 I think - we were in Division Two and went on to win the league at the end of the season. I seem to remember being at the game were Willie Irvine scored to beat Queen of the South to clinch either promotion or the title. Had a spell when I lived in England were I wasn't, but other than that 4 years or so I've been a season ticket holder since the following season when we went back to back (but missed out on the title) under Leishman.

"April 1st 1960 Pars 1 - Kilmarnock 0 - 58years."

Was that the game just after Jock Stein took over and managed the club to successive straight wins to avoid relegation ?

A Monday night re-arranged fixture he persuaded Killie to fulfill as they had a big cup tie on the Saturday ?

Big Jock's mindset was that if Killie had won their cup match they would still be on a high and more focused on the next round rather than a routine league match a couple of days after.

If they lost they'd be on a downer, or if a draw they'd be concentrating on the replay.

66 or 67 years, not sure which, I think it was against Kilmarnock. What I do remember was reaching the top of the terracing at the Town end and seeing goalposts with nets for the first time. It was like in the Wizard of Oz when everything turns to colour. I was hooked. My first favourite player was George O'Brien a local lad who went on to score a lot of goals down south with Leeds and Southampton

52 years and counting. Good teams, bad teams, great managers and poor managers. Another bad patch at present but their again Scottish football in general is poor quality to what it used to be. COYP we will be great again.

Since the 54-55 season. Had been to a few games with my Dad before but got hooked by the Partick cup tie. 0-2 down at half time and won 4-2. Mackin, Laird and Mackie, Samuel, Duthie and Chalmers, McKinley, O'Brien, Dickson, Reilly and Anderson. My first away game was the next round at Airdrie in the snow. We got thumped 7-0. Didn't put me off though. A great 64 years.

I was thinking of this earlier this morning. First game in 1977. John Saltoun was captain, Bobby Robertson at right back, Kenny Thomson at left back, Hugh Whyte in goals........but I was thinking of the most skilful players I witnessed in the 80s ......Ian McCall, Jim Bowie, George O’Boyle, Istvan Kozma, Bobby Smith......the late 80s was superb time to be following the Pars. I left Scotland about 25 years ago (coming back soon, hopefully).……but still love the DAFC !!

5years, since we moved to the kingdom. Must really be glory hunting as every season we have been better than the previous. My son has has visited 25 grounds to watch the Pars play and I happy to say that current form hasn’t changed his attitude, he still puts on a strip/ training top every day when he gets home from school and can’t wait for Saturday to come.

Although I'd followed the Pars' progress 'remotely', my first season of actually going to games was 72/73. My first match was an 8-0 win against Brechin ('come on Dunfermline, it's been five minutes since you scored', I can remember someone shouting) What a great season that was. More than 100 goals and a feeling we were on the way back. I was convinced that set of players was going to make the big club again, but sadly the potential was never fully realised. Still waiting for a Premier title, Scottish Cup/League Cup win! One day.
