Re: 50 Pitches

Hi Jimmy,

When Sir Alex Ferguson came up to the Bens a few years back he gave quite a few of his memories of the 50 pitches. He played for the 129th BB team at the time.
The Shipyards used to have internal competitions between the various departments. The Platerers and the Electricians at Fairfield were usually good. The finals were played usually at Tinto Park.

Re: 50 Pitches

A couple of pages from 'A Time in Govan'. Sligo Celtic were a strong side and played their matches; by co incidence; mostly on the pitch below the present  St.Anthony's McKenna Park side. They had good support in particular during summer evenings.
