Declan Glass, then aged only 16, watched wide-eyed as Tony Andreu volleyed home a wonder goal to help Dundee United lift the Irn-Bru Cup.
It was a marvellous moment at Fir Park that sent them on their way to a 2-1 win over St Mirren.
Thomas Mikkelsen’s header may have been the winner but all the talk on Mrach 26, 2017, was of the Frenchman’s super strike.
Now a couple of years older and considered a member of the Tangerines’ first team squad, Glass would love to make a headline or two for himself in this season’s competition.
United’s approach to the Irn-Bru has changed since then, of course, with reserve coach Craig Easton and Scott Robertson taking the team tonight instead of boss Csaba Laszlo and young players making up a chunk of the side that will take on St Johnstone’s colts at Tannadice.
Nevertheless, it will still be a big deal to 18-year-old midfielder Glass.
He said: “I was there at Fir Park for the final against St Mirren, even though I was too young to be involved.
“It was great to see the boys win it despite it not being classed as the biggest of cups.
“It was really good that day and the thing that I remember most was Tony Andreu scoring.
“It was a worldie – right out of the top drawer.
“In any cup competition you want to go as far as you can and our goal is to win it again.
“The more progress you make the more of a buzz there is.
“So we will be going all out to beat St Johnstone.
“They might be a colts team but I don’t think that makes much of a difference.
“A game is a game and we must go out and beat them.
“We are all looking forward to it and, for me, it means yet more game time under my belt.”
Easton, meanwhile, confirmed that the United team will be a mixture of first-team men and younger players.
“It will be about half and half,” said Easton.
“It will a good mixture of players looking to show something to get into the first team and youngster who are keen to show the manager that they can perform at a good standard.
“Every match is an opportunity and you want to win cup games and progress to the next round.”
