Welcome to Cove and Queens Park for 22/23

Postby porcupine » Sun May 15, 2022 9:16 pm

At least some excitement for the new season with Cove Rangers to visit for the first time, and a return to Lesser Hanpden to see Queens Park,(assuming they get their issues all sorted out with the builders there) I think the last time I saw Accies play there in a competitive match was when Hampden Main Stand was being demolished. Could it have been 'old' Div 2 or Div3?

Should be another competitive league in the Championship in 2022/23, regardless of other matters raised on another thread.

Watched us win there in a pre season friendly 4-0 I think mid 1990's.

Hopefully,new gaffer DOUGIE will have us fired up if Twitter is true.

Then again,it is Twitter for a reason.

I'm not sure we have ever played a competitive game at Lesser Hampden, certainly not since I started going in 1980. I was at the friendly mentioned by YOH.

On balance of your evidence, I suspect my memory is suspect here about it being competitive game at LH. Given that Hampden was developed over a number of years, it's probable that this game against QP was in the 90's, and possibly a pre-season friendly?

Whatever, it looks to becoming a tidy wee stadium from what I could see through the metal gates when at Scotland Games this year. I'd much rather be going there next season than Firhell!

Have a vague recollection of seeing us at Lesser Hampden. Possibly in the Spring Cup in 1976.
