The Weekly News : Issue 52

PostedMarch 22, 2019


Partick Thistle currently have Celtic goalkeeper Conor Hazard on loan. He was called up for international duty by Northern Ireland for matches between 17 March and 24 March. As such, Thistle implemented the temporary recall of Aaron Lennox for a seven day period so he can be in their squad for their match v Inverness Caledonian Thistle tonight. He will thus not be available for Cowdenbeath FC on Saturday.


From time to time we see someone with Cowdenbeath connections involved in one of TV’s ubiquitous quiz shows.

Recently, long-time Cowden fan Chris Grandison (pictured on the left below) popped up on that quirky quiz hosted by Victoria Mitchell ‘Only Connect’. He was a member of a team named the Birdwatchers who won their tie in the last round so should reappear soon. He is nowadays a hospital administrator in Coventry. Chris of course was a stalwart of the old Cowdenbeath Supporters Club quizzes of 15 years or so ago – when Adam Dickson was the quiz inquisitor. Chris has also appeared on Fifteen to One and Mastermind. When he was in the Chair on Mastermind he won his first round tie by one point with a score of 26 (Specialist Subject score was 15 on TV series ‘Our Friends in the North’). He lost in the semi-final with 16 points – 8 coming from his Specialist Subject ‘Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins’ At one time, ex-Cowden secretary Tom Ogilvie was a winner on Johnny Beattie’s ‘Now you see it’ many years back. Of course our ex-striking hero Mark Yardley was on Postcode Challenge with Carol Smillie. His team included his wife and neighbours and they won 3,000.

Talking of Mark Yardley and Postcodes try Yardley Avenue, Paisley. Mark is one of 5 St Mirren legends who are having streets named after them in Paisley on the site of the old Love Street ground. A great honour for the big man. So how about the Council naming the road up past Partners say Pollock Way in tribute to the founders of Cowdenbeath FC? Given the Pollock’s also built the Grand Theatre/Slora’s Cinema across the way the path on the other side of the High Street could also be a continuation of Pollock Way!
