Meadowbank Thistle had a relatively short life. Their existence in this format only covered the 1974 to 1995 period. Before this they were called Ferranti Thistle, then in 1995 the club moved out of Edinburgh's Meadowbank Stadium and relocated to Livingston, changing their name accordingly.
This match programme was a League Cup tie. Dundee won 3-0, with goals from Dodds, McGowan & Campbell. A whopping crowd of...898 turned out for this football feast. Couldn't have shifted many programmes that day!
Meadowbank did have a bit of a cult following throughout the UK, due to Radio 1 DJ John Peel. Liverpool mad Peely adopted Meadowbank as his second team and would actually go see them play when he was gigging around Scotland. He would read out their scores during his shows and sometimes even give the lowdown on a game he caught.
Not sure if he witnessed this Dee victory mind you!
