Since it’s 3pm on a Saturday afternoon with no game.
Can you remember your first away game and your first trip to Hampden.
My first away game was Hibs 0 Celtic 3 in 1983.
I was only just turned 9 years old and we were in the Main stand.
I can remember Nicholas got a double and there were no fans across from the Main stand due to reconstruction.
My first trip to Hampden was the 1985 Scottish cup Semi final, Celtic 1 Motherwell 1.
Gary McAllister scored for Motherwell before Tommy Burns equalised.
Celtic won the replay and I was fortunate enough to be at the final to see Celtic lift the 100th Scottish Cup against Dundee Utd in a 2-1 victory.

Agree0 Disagree0

Buzz Bomb 10 my first visit to Hamden was the 1962 Cup Winners cup final Atletico v Fiorentina finished 1-1.I won two tickets the school had been given and went with my brother Atletico won the replay. My first away game was to Tynecastle midweek around 1963/ 64 we lost 4-0 .

First hampden game was also technically my first home game. We played Aberdeen and had the 3rd kit on even though we were at "home".

23 Jan 2021 15:57:24
I can remember that game Pk
Celtic were on a terrible record but beat Aberdeen 2-0 on a Sunday afternoon.

Buzz Bomb did Celtic ever play Watford at Celtic Park I’m guessing mid 70s possibly a friendly or am I tripping? I can’t find anything.

i couldn't tell you the opponents of my first home game i was to young, i can just remember not seeing a thing looking up at everybody around me and the smell of pish.

23 Jan 2021 16:40:53
The only Watford game I can find was in the 1950s.
Celtic won 4-0 away from home.

BB that’s the only one I can see as well. I’m obviously tripping.

My first home game at celtic Park was a friendly against arsenal in 96 I think it was. Got my first season ticket the year after. First away game was against dundee United, don't remember much about it, think Paul elliot played and I got to go to mcdonalds before the game. Was only about 6 at the time.

1st away game was Firhill, First trip to Hampden was 85 Cup Final.

When I was younger my dad and his friends would always stand in the middle of the Rangers end but I would spend all my time kicking cans with the other kids at the bottom of the terracing. Memories.

23 Jan 2021 17:11:35
BB I stood on terracing at Celtic end next to the pylon.

Murderwell 0 - 5, Harry Hood hatrick, can remember wee jinky running amok.

23 Jan 2021 17:27:55
Our bus moved round to the Celtic end about 1985/ 86.
I think the reason was Celtic sold the ground where we parked our buses to Irn Bru?
The new bigger roof was put on just in time.
The fans in the old Celtic end would get soaked when it rained due to the tiny roof.

BB great memories ‘can ye lift me over Mr’ but I couldn’t go back to that I’ve been spoiled too long now covered with a seat. I remember standing outside uncovered at away games like a drowned rat. I couldn’t do that now.

Oh a manager I like and respect how he plays football is the Brentford manager Thomas Frank. Think he has them playing great football and again well drilled team. 🍀.

brilliant memories buzz and a great original post to get us all thinking mate.

Was so small I used to climb up on the back wall of the celtic end loved the way the cantileveRded roof would bounce up and down as a kid this amazed me hh.
