    3 Years Ago Today

    Our epic and legendary Scottish Cup winning run began

    Raith Rovers 0 - 2 Hibernian



    And I think I'm correct in saying we were the 4th team in a row to knock Raith out of the cup to go on and win the trophy

    " They will be dancing in the streets of Raith" !!! said the commentator when Rovers won the League Cup.in '95.

    I was studying at Telford College when Rovers won the League Cup, beating Celtic in the final.
    Two guys on one of my courses were Rovers fans from the Kingdom.

    The were walking on air for weeks!

    Always cheers me when "wee" teams win trophies,against the odds.

    Just like May '16

    McGregor scored Hibs 1000th Scottish cup goal that night I believe.

    It was a very good record Raith had, something like 4 in a row and maybe 5 out of 6 years. The next year they were put out by hearts though and their run ended.
    Mon the Hibs.

    I suspect that you already know the answers to those questions.

    We were pretty brutal in the 1st half, efficient in the 2nd. A certain Chris Dagnall put in a decent shift considering he had a pretty thankless task up top.

    If you'd have asked me on the road back to Edinburgh that night if I'd just seen the cup winners I'd have answered with a resounding no.

    This gets quoted often as a mistake, but Raith is an area of Kirkcaldy. Not too dissimilar from saying "they'll be dancing in the streets of Leith" in reference to us.

    Aye
    But the English broadcaster did not know that.
    Just like the ones that pronounce the town Kirkcallday

    I thought only those involved in the final (starter or substitute) got a medal? Could be wrong.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    As I sat in the pub when we were 0-2 to Hearts at Tynecastle with 10 minutes to go I thought I had more chance of getting to the Moon than us winning the cup that year. Apart from winning a final was our draw there the best result we have ever had?

    I last saw wee Chic at a sportsmans' dinner. He had zero knowledge of amusing stories, too.

    I was in a pub too, in North York, watching the game on a tiny wee TV. I was the only person watching that screen.

    When Hanlon scored the equaliser, I shouted "ya fluccin beauty" so loudly, the whole pub was silenced and they all looked at me.

    I smiled at them all and shouted, "Ma bonny boys!"

    We used to slag the Jambos for celebrating draws with us wildly.

    I'll never do that again, as getting that draw under those circumstances would have been one of my favourite games even if we hadn't gone on to win the cup.

    Can't believe that, Hibs were two nil down in the next round with only ten minutes to go. Very unlikely a wee team like Hibs would recover from that.
