and Ken Amer
The throw-up of the Ba at 13:00 by Archie Findlay. It was a pleasant day for the game - crisp and dry with sunshine.
The game never went south of the Mercat Cross and by 13:45 the scrum was on the Kirk Green. By 13:45 it was on Palace Road and by 13:55 it had reached the Museum.
There was considerable fighting which is unusual. By 14:00 the game had entered Victoria Street
The game stopped outside William Shearer's for abour 90 minutes and finally Kenny Garrioch was the Uppie winner shortly after 17:00.
