Winners of our ‘Celts In Seville’ ticket competition

ImageThe winners of our competition to see the play ‘The Celts in Seville’ at The Pavilion on Wednesday 9th April are Nick Saxton, Owen Reynolds and Jamie Kempton

 

The question posed was:  Which game, home or away, was the best attended from the first round tie at home to FK Suduva to the final v Porto in Seville (inclusive)?

The answer was the semi-final at home to Boavista (60,000).  The next two highest attendances were also home ties, against Liverpool (59,756) and Blackburn (59,553).  The final at the Estadio Olimpico was seen by 52,297. 

 

Thank you to all those who took part in the competition.

The Shamrock fanzine – Issue 1

ImageAs we start work on Issue 2 of The Shamrock, remaining stocks of our debut magazine are starting to run low as word spreads.  We’re delighted at the positive reaction and hope to produce an even better follow-up.  Your thoughts on what you liked best and didn’t like at all would be most welcome:  theshamrock@outlook.com.

From the feedback we’ve had the features on the first Celtic brake clubs, the visit to Cliftonville in 1984, Cinema Paradiso and the contrasting fortunes of Paul McStay (blessed) and Tony Cascarino (sorrowful) were the most appreciated along with the design of the mag itself.
