No wonder referee was flabbergasted!!!

#1 Post by Richiemac » Fri Jun 05, 2015 3:43 pm

I have searched for this newspaper clipping for almost 3 years which recalls an incident my late father was involved in at Windsor Park. We used to have this clipping at home but lost it. I did not know the paper it was in, nor its date.
The story was well known but I wanted the proof. After countless emails, phonecalls and trips to libraries it has turned up in a newspaper office in Scotland!
My search is over.
A short but infamous story from December 1965.
