You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

Tommy Ewing wasn't especially noted for his strong shots but referee Mr W Elliot of Barrhead got on the wrong end of one when he awarded Thistle a free-kick against Hibs at Easter Road on 19/12/1964. He was knocked out cold and had to be brought round by the physios from both clubs. Just as well it was an indirect free-kick!
