Just thinking back to the 1989/90 season when my dad started taking me along to cliftonhill and was wondering if anyone had any photos from around that time they could share on here? I remember going along to fir park to see us play Aberdeen in the skol cup that season but struggle to find any photos of that match
Funnily enough I was just thinking about that game recently. I don’t recall any photos for it kicking about. Rovers did really against a very good Aberdeen team with Charlie Nicholas in it . I’m sure Jim Bett played in that team also.
Yes Jim Bett played that night alongside theo snelders,stuart mckimmie,willie miller,davie dodds,brian irvine and as you said charlie nic. Aberdeen had some team at the time.Im sure they reached both cup finals that season,winning the scottish

Remember the game well at the ground of the well ! We gave a good account of ourselves against a really good Aberdeen team - much better that the current lot ! A truly unlucky season against top notch teams in the reconstructed Division 1 at the time - David Robertson got the first goal - real novelty there !!

I remember selling programmes at the match - a Well seller accompanied me round to the far side from the main stand only to find out that they weren’t opening that one. We did indeed give a good account, annoying it wasn’t at Cliftonhill and IIRC the crowd was pretty paltry 1500ish?
