Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

Recommended Posts

Tommy Rae played in two of the League Cup games (Raith Rovers at home, scored 2 in the 5-0 win, and 1-1 draw at Alloa).

Charlie Smith played in four games (scored 2 in 4-2 at home vs Arbroath, and 1 in the 4-1 at home vs. Alloa.)

I hadn’t linked Tommy Rae with the league cup winning season and until I got a copy of the program from the final recently I couldn’t have told you who Charlie Smith was.

This picture was taken on 13 February 1960. My first time in Dungdee (I thought "What a s--t Heap"), The game - Scottish Cup v D U in their last season in the second tier before becoming an established top level team. Our team - Big John Freebairn, Joe Hogan, Dougie Baird, Alex Wright, John Harv ey, Frank Donlevy, Johnnie McKenzie, Davie McParland, George Smith, Jim Fleming, Willie Devine. Score 2 - 2. Scorers  - O.G. and Willie Devine. we won the replay 4 - 1. Anyway back to the picture - I think it's a D.U. player with Alex Wright because I'm certain it's not any of the afore mentioned Jags team. The one D.U. player I can remember from then - Ron Yeats (it's not him).

Out of curiosity: the official history book identifies the man at the right end of the back row as "McBride (Director)." He seems to me to bear a resemblance to Joe McBride, the player. Any relation?

 

PS: This is a colourized version of the original b&w pic.

Deffo Joe McBride.  Deffo not a Director.  McBride and Tommy Ewing in collar and tie.

Yep, newspaper reporter sees a player in a team photo wearing a shirt and tie, and assumes: "Director"! Not much has changed.

OK, as no-one else is nibbling, here's my guess. 1921 cup finalists? 

Good try, DOD.

It predates 1921. 

I'll leave it for a day or two and then spill the beans.
