First Man Utd v County match
#1
Thought I'd start a thread for any old gadgies like me who remember the first time Tommy Docherty took a a big name Man Utd team up to play County.
Believe it or not ,but there was a restriction on cross border friendlies back then , but County got round it by donating £1 of every ticket to a SFA youth fund or a Highland league fund, cant remember!
Anyway Brian Kidd scored both goals for Utd to win. I'm sure Alex Stepney was in goal and Martin Buchan played, memory a bit hazy now.
Any one else remember thet game? Or am I too old to be starting my first ever thread!

God these names bring back some memories. My mate reckoned we were still eating the sausage rolls in November that were unsold at the game!!! Some great players who were good servants to County. Still say Hosie was brilliant and would be my first name in any County select

have to agree with you Hosie was different class,when he did the shuffle the opposing defenders had to pay to get back in to the park

Stan Sokolowski. The original Ginger Pele?

I remember Colin Brett as a tidy full back, and Gordon Seaton showing some silky touches bringing the ball out of defence.

Stan could play centre forward and centre half. Lynas knew where the back of the net was and how to get booked!! The only name I can't think of is Pryce -Any details to help out the altzeimers?

"Edie Pryce in the Scottish Cup
by StattoStaggie » Tue Aug 05, 2008 9:02 pm

Eddie did hit the big time when he signed for the mighty Ross County! Made his debut in a 4-0 win over forres mechanics and then turned out for County in their 1-0 Scottish Cup defeat from East Stirling in December 1972

Hope this helps
