 Lap of Honour
Topic Originator: Stoo

68 Cup Final memories.

Nice work. Good to have these memories documented like this.

Watched all the older video interviews done by the Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust religiously. There can never be too many interviews with former players from any era giving their thoughts from behind the scenes.

Thanks for posting Stoo...I have just watched the interviews and loved them. Brought back a lot of great memories of those times, with great players who talk so supportive of the club, especially my favourite player of all time Roy Barry. I still can't believe the team were not allowed a lap of honour and I can remember vividly how disappointed I was on the day when I was at Hampden not to see our heroes celebrating with the cup.

"I still can't believe the team were not allowed a lap of honour"

That was down to a bunch of Rangers fans invading the Hampden pitch as they could not stomach a Celtic lap of honour after losing the 1965 League Cup Final.

There is a photo in the press archives somewhere of Tommy Gemmell "tackling" a Rangers fan from the vertical to horizontal position.

Might have been the other way around of course if Celtic had lost.
