BLETHER: Former Celtic player was in the ‘only Dundee team’ to win trophy

BLETHER: Former Celtic player was in the ‘only Dundee team’ to win trophy

My old buddy Frankie Campbell got back in touch.

Frankie and I grew up together in Balerno Street in Douglas, Dundee, and spent many an evening kicking a football around the concrete street.

Frankie was a very skilled player and had a spell with Celtic.

I’ve told in previous BwB articles how one of his team-mates among the Parkhead youth players was Kenny Dalglish, and they used to hang out after training.

Prior to all that, Frankie was part of the great 1968 Lawside Academy U/15 football team which won the Scottish Cup – the Intermediate Shield to give it it’s ‘posh’ name.

And that great feat was the reason he contacted me.

Said Frankie: “I had to send you this picture. 50 years after the event, we had a mini reunion of the old Lawside Academy Scottish Cup-winning team. Mike Kolacz organised the reunion, and we remain the only Dundee team to win the trophy.

“In the first leg of the final against Hillhead High School at Tannadice Park, Davy Henderson scored four goals in seven minutes to turn a 2-2 half-time score in a 6-2 victory.

“The second leg to place at Motherwell FC’s Fir Park.

“Davy had an ‘off day’ and scored only two in a 3-1 victory for a 9-3 aggregate win.

“The manager and tactical genius of the team was Joe Hart.

“I’d like to thank Mikey for organising the get-together.”

The Lawside team for both legs of the final was Joe Forbes; Frankie Campbell, Mike Kolacz; Derek Mousely (deceased) Gerry Toshney (captain), Larry Blyth; Davy Henderson, Davy Brogan, George Forbes, Joe Tront (deceased), Davy Alexander.
