It was our pleasure to today meet up with some of the squad involved in Stirling Albion’s epic Far East tour to Japan in June 1966.
Former players Henry Hall, Billy Reid, Drew Rogerson, Bill Taylor and John Orr, along with then club secretary Peter Gardiner and trainer Hugh Allan, visited the 50th anniversary exhibition at the Stirling Smith Museum.
The Binos, in 1965/66 a top-flight team managed by Sammy Baird, played games in Greece and Athens en route to Japan, where we played two matches in front of huge crowds in Tokyo.
