That beautiful Caledonia End terracing in the background , just at the top of the slope. Exactly where I was when Peter Kane rifled home an early half-volleyed winner past Hearts' Jim Cruickshank , I could greet 😪 !

Flashback The Pole who hit the goals

./PressReader.com%20-%20Digital%20Newspaper%20&%20Magazine%20Subscriptions_files/img(2) Flashback A football card salutes Alfons Lesz

When a foreigner decides to turn their hand to playing football in Scotland, it always raises on eyebrow.

Alfons “Alfie” Lesz was no different.

Lesz was a Polish striker who arrived at Love Street from Highland League side Forres Mechanics in August 1947.

Lesz was a Polish serviceman originally stationed in the north of Scotland following the war – hence why he was featuring for Forres.

However, he was restationed to Johnstone, catching the eye of Saints scouts when he turned out for a Polish services side playing a bounce match against Glasgow Tramways, and was swiftly snapped up to play for the Love Street side.

Lesz featured in a frontline not short of talent, and featuring the likes of Irishman Gerry Burrell and Willie Jack, who would score a hat-trick on Lesz’ debut against Meet Alfie

St Mirren FC is a club with a proud tradition – and a history to match.

They have been at the centre of the Scottish game since their formation in 1877.

Today, we look back at St Mirren’s Polish goal hero Alfons Lesz.

Aberdeen.

Under the stewardship of then Saints boss Bobby Rankin, outside left Lesz would stay in Paisley for five years before departing south for a new challenge with Worcester City. He would later feature for Kidderminster before emigrating to Canada.

With 48 goals across the years, Lesz endeared himself to the Saints faithful, leaving him ranked 40th in St Mirren’s all-time goal scoring charts.

Mah faither liked him a lot despite Lesz being capable of instigating heart-attacks in the fans…

he was famous/infamous cos he once (?) helped out Saints defence during a goalmouth stramash by…. clearing the ball by battering it off a (square) post towards a corner flag.

confidence is all…  :)

Since big Mark picture is a few posts up, I will post this here. My son is flying back from Tenerife so he bought the empty seat next to him to give him and his young family more room. Booked it under Mark Yardley name so maybe someone at the airport in the last hr will be asking, will Mark Yardly please report to the check in desk  😂

The trouble with managers we have had who have been associated with the o. f., is their hearts are elswhere.

The worst first, Rae, Hay, Miller. Miller must have forgot where he was when he turned up on his first day still wearing some of previous employees attire.

TBF Miller had every right to drop Thomson , he lost that deflected McStay goal v Celtic in the Cup semi , but he really should have saved it , and then a few days later , at home to Celtic , he had a shocker . He never played for us again after that !

As much as I despise that horrible DOB Rae, who should never have been allowed anywhere near our club, surely that C*NT Hay is the worst ever example of the OF infiltrating St Mirren. The money he chucked away on his permanently-injured ex-Celtic reject pals should never be forgiven IMO.

Hay is a despicable arsehole, surely our worst ever appointment, worse even than Jim Gardner !!!

It was Hay that signed Lex Ballie and Mark Reid wasn't it? Ballie was as slow as the hills and Reid, welll, injured a lot.

As bad as Gardner was, I don't think he had a patch on Mike Connor who started with a debut goal...........................
