Thanks for that link, Stenhouse.
It brought back memories of my visit to Glebe Park in the late-1990s to watch Brechin v Stenhousemuir.
I sat in the stand behind the goal with my girlfriend of the time - who had distinctive long blonde hair.
Just before half-time we decided to pop to the club shop at the other end of the ground so we took a stroll along the path in front of the famous hedge.
In that 100-yard walk she got hit by the ball three times, much to the amusement of those around us. On the third occasion it occurred to us that the players were aiming at her. She was not happy!
It was a fantastically friendly club, though.

Went to Brechin City v Montrose in the Scottish League Cup about 2001. I paid £3:00 for a mug at the club shop and was given a ticket with a number on it and told to come back at he end of the game. When asking why, I was told that it was a police advice that they had to do it as there was concern it may be used as a weapon and thrown at someone!

Stenhouse will know about my last visit to Central Park!

What a beautiful video.

Sorry Shots, you may have to do without me for one game while I take a short holiday to Brechin later in the season.

Two brilliant, moving and quite humbling videos of football life up in the Highlands. Real football folk.
