I mind playing football on that pitch probably around 1982 and the game descended into a pitched battle
It was never going to end well a Dennistoun team versus the Shamrock

Thing was it was mostly the bloody parents boxing and throwing bottles like it was an old firm derby. Might even have been the Sherpa in the picture that turned up too.

That free Argentina wall is still there in situ too.

The nearside goal was the scene of the most spectacular goal I ever scored.
We played cross 'n in (throw crosses into the box and they had to be headered
or volleyed in without bouncing first, for the uninitiated) and I was at the D at the
edge of the box. The cross came in but was slightly behind me, so I turned and
launched into an overhead bicycle kick. As I landed on the red ash I immediately
regretted it, but glanced around to see the ball fly into the top corner via the
underside of the bar.

This moment of footballing genius, befitting Pele himself, was witnessed by all
of 4 people - the other 4 people that were playing the game. I never did try it again.


No surprise to hear of pitched battles. It is Royston after all...

Used to deliver butcher meat parcels to that celtic club across the road on a friday night and used to always remember that game when looking back across at the pitch. all the kids just kinda spoke away while the aulds got on with it...I think it might even have been a schools league game.

Remember getting shot at from the Charles St flats during a Saturday morning game at Glenconner.
