How long have you been an East Fife supporter and what was your first game?
My Grandad Fred took me to my first game which was against Forfar at the old Bayview in 1993. East Fife won 3-2 and I was hooked from that moment on.
Most memorable moment following East Fife?
When we won the league at Firs Park in March 2008, beating East Stirling 3-0. We were the first team in the whole of Britain to win a league title that season and it was very special.
Least favourite moment following East Fife?
Well I’m still recovering from the match earlier this season against Raith at Bayview! That was a very painful experience. There is nothing more depressing than being annihilated at home against your most bitter rivals but hopefully we will get our revenge in the other matches this season.
I also have to mention all the defeats we have had against Cowdenbeath. Our record against them over the last twenty years is quite frankly shocking.
Favourite player (present)?
That would have to be Kevin Smith. He is incredibly talented and if it hadn’t been for some really bad luck with injuries over his career then he would have certainly played at a much higher level than he has.
Favourite player (all time)?
It is difficult to single one player out. There are a few candidates. However, if I had to just pick one player, it would be Dave Beaton. He was a warrior who commanded huge respect.
Best East Fife goal you’ve seen?
Craig O’Reilly’s beauty which knocked St Mirren out of the League Cup in 2007 - it was an absolute screamer!
Pick your all-time East Fife 11 (players you’ve seen)
GK: Lindsay Hamilton
Defenders: Jock McStay, Dickie Gibb, Dave Beaton, Steven Tweed
Midfielders: Gilbert Allan, Arnold Dwarika, Robert Pritz, Steve Archibald
Strikers: Robert Scott, Kenny Deuchar
Subs: Mark Ridgers, Johnny Smart, Stevie Campbell, Bobby Linn and Paul McManus
Favourite Scotland game?
Scotland’s victory against France in Paris back in 2007. James McFadden’s wonder strike from 30 yards out was out of this world, and will be forever etched in the memory.
Favourite Scotland player (all-time)?
Colin Hendry was everything you would want in a central defender. He was nicknamed ‘Braveheart’ for good reason and he would run through a brick wall for Scotland.
When do you think Scotland will next qualify for a major tournament?
It’s a lot tougher than it used to be and it’s incredible to think that we haven’t qualified since 1998 when I was a young lad at Kirkland High School. However, if the likes of Northern Ireland and Iceland can qualify then there is no reason why we shouldn’t be able to do so. The level of player perhaps isn’t what it used to be but then how many superstars do Northern Ireland have? Good organisation and excellent team spirit both go a long way.
Ronaldo or Messi?
Messi probably, but neither could lace Arnold Dwarika’s boots!
Favourite away ground?
I have always enjoyed visiting Somerset Park – it’s a proper old school ground.
If you could change one football rule, what would it be?
I wouldn’t change any football rules but what I would change is the league set up in Scotland. I would like to see the structure revamped with more teams in the Premier League.
Will supporters please note that the free bus for the Raith Rovers game is now full and no more bookings can be accepted.
