Ground 98: Queen of the South

Tired, wet-through and stuffed full of deep-fried haggis, we broke the journey home from Glasgow at Palmerston Park in Dumfries, where local boys Queen of the South tonked Clyde three goals to one. Leaving town after the game, we attempted a short drive through pitch-black country roads with only the sidelights on, before sitting in a Matalan car park for the best part of two hours waiting for a breakdown truck.

Attendance: 1,500, including two-hundred oddballs from Clyde, a couple of unwashed Geordies with beer-breath and point and shoot cameras, several gangs of spotty teenagers, and lots of men in wooly hats and white Reebok trainers.
