You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

During the Raith Rovers v Thistle match as Starks Park on 17/10/1953, a lusty clearance by a Raith defender saw the ball land on a railing spike and burst. Perhaps unfortunately a replacement ball was found. Thistle lost 4-1. ("Fife Free Press" 24/10/1953.)
