Dunfermline Athletic

1961 Pars Cup Winner

Date: Friday, 21st May 2004

We talk to Ron Mailer the captain of the Pars 1961 Cup winning team.

Dunfermline are dreaming of reliving the glory days of the 1960ís on Saturday in the final of the Tennentís Scottish Cup.

In 1961 the Pars were massive underdogs against the mighty Celtic and under the watchful eye of Jock Stein they overcame the odds and lifted the Scottish Cup.

The legends of 1961 still live in the hearts of the Dunfermline fans and none more so than the captain of the 1961 cup winning squad, Ron Mailer, who led the team to that famous victory against Celtic.

Ron describes the moment in 1961, todays team and his favourites of today and the chances of todayís Dunfermline team to pull of another cup shock. He also compares the use of the plastic pitch to the rather dodgy state of the pitch in mid-winter in the 60`s
