You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

A 2-0 defeat at East End Park to Dunfermline on 16/9/1986 was confirmed with an own goal by John Donnelly who failed to notice keeper Brough had come off his line and he watched in horror as his pass-back trundled over the line. 5 months later on 21/2/1987 he did it again with a header - except that by then he was a Dunfermline player. He must be one of the few players (if not the only one) to score 2 own goals at the same venue for and against the same two teams in the same season.
