The opening of the new pavilion at Creetown Football Club’s ground is our chosen subject this week for Galloway Past Picture when the team played against Queen of the South.
Howden Skimming says that is Roddy Lupton from Creetown and Willie Harkness, Chairman of Queen of the South, with his father Drew, in the foreground.
There are more pictures on the Creetown FC website:http://www.creetownfc.net/history.html
In the background are Drew Murray, Alex Nisbett, Billy Gordon, Kenneth Smith, Douglas McDavid and Brian Wilson. Howden, who was the ballboy that day reckons it was 1976. Douglas McDavid thinks the score was 9-0 to Queen of the South.
