THERE will be a packed house at Wee Jimmies on Saturday night as Cowdenbeath FC holds its big re-union event.

The successful squads who won promotion in 1970 and 1992 will gather to recall these great days for the Blue Brazil.

And the event is being accompanied by a special booklet called ‘Auld Acquaintance’, which looks at some great Cowden days.

A number of the surviving members of 1970 squad will be at the event including skipper Andy Kinnell, midfielder Jim Taylor and winger Davie Ross.

One of the speakers at the event will be Arbroath manager, Dick Campbell, who was a youthful member of the Cowden squad in those days, and he will be joined by Cowdenbeath chairman Donald Findlay.

Of the 1992 side who won promotion to the First Division, players such as right-back Davie Watt, centre-back or midfielder, Hugh Douglas, top scorer Peter Lamont, and tough tackling centre-half, Eric Archibald, along with striker Graham Buckley, will be taking part among many others.

Sadly, manager John Brownlie cannot attend as he is currently in Australia.

Club secretary, David Allan, this week confirmed that the booklet is now on sale: “As previously announced, we can confirm that there is a 40-page one-off special publication now available to dovetail with the Reunion Event being held at Wee Jimmies on Saturday.

"It is a limited edition publication and is priced at £4 (plus £2pp) if required.

“For postal purchases, the best method to get your copies is by making a donation to Club 135, via the club’s website for the requisite amount.

"We can provide bank account details though on request if anyone wants to make a bank transfer to pay.

"Otherwise Facebook message or email the club. Any cheques should be made payable to Cowdenbeath Football Club.”

David added: “It will of course be on sale at Wee Jimmies on Saturday, assuming it hasn’t sold out before then. Copies are on sale from the club office.

“The 1960s to 1990s era is looked at, with one article per year on a range of topics – articles include – Trouble in Paradise, Frostquake, A Need for Speed, Big Tam, Light it Up, Flash, Bang Wallop, Time to pay the Piper, Double Take, When the Sun Shines, the CPSC, Off the Post, the Goal that won a Million, Chariots of Fife, the Life of Reilly, and Phoenix from the Ashes.
