We look forward to welcoming several of our 1995/96 Division Two title-winning squad to Saturday’s game against Airdrieonians at Forthbank.
Kevin Drinkell, assisted by Ray Stewart, guided the team to a remarkable 27-game unbeaten sequence in a season that included 5-1 and 7-0 victories at Queen of the South and 6-0 and 4-1 wins at Forfar.
For many fans, the highlight of a truly memorable campaign was the 3-0 midweek triumph over title rivals East Fife at Bayview in January and we hit the summit a week later with another 3-0 success against Clyde.
Ironically, the championship was sealed on the day our long unbeaten run ended with a 1-0 Forthbank defeat to Stenhousemuir on March 30 but we ended the season in style, with five straight wins to finish 14 points clear at the top.
Our leading scorers that season, deadly strike duo Steve McCormick and Alex Bone – who netted 43 of our 83 league goals – are expected to be in attendance on Saturday, along with midfield maestros Tom Tait and Craig Taggart.
Other members of that hugely popular group of players coming to the game this weekend include Andy Paterson, Mark McGeown and Neil Bennett.
Make sure you get along early on Saturday and meet the guys for some football chat, great memories, and a refreshment in the Supporters Bar!
