It’s got to be my scarf from 76/77.........which I found while sorting out my football stuff during lockdown.

Maybe once this thread has run its course we could have 2nd favourite........

And put a wee photo of the item if possible..........

Brilliant.

Some of those badges have just come flooding back to me. In particular the wings one and the only one St. Mirren. I’d forgotten all about those.  Magic that you’ve still got that.

Sorry @HSS I meant too add a photo.

I got this crush barrier after the “Making the Stand” fund raising lottery for the when a group of us who met on the old Saints Online Guestbook decided to help raise money with the generosity of our home support.

I was still working down south at the time, so I borrowed my mates estate car to transport it down to middle England. It never felt right to concrete it in England. It endured 3 house moves in 6 years over hundreds of miles before its final resting place in Renfrewshire.

It is that treasured by me that it was always the first item in the removal van. 😂😂 And yes I know it needs a fresh coat of paint - as does the fence. Plus my raised beds need some clearing out for the winter months. I get enough nagging from the wife without any from you guys and gals.

Just think how many goals it witnessed during its time at Love St - personal favourite at that end of the ground was Ian Scanlon’s goal against Celtic in the 4-2 victory.

Class Balfy. I’m now wondering if I’ve ever leaned against that barrier. Guess I must have at some stage.

I was lucky enough to play in the first ever Saints Aid game in 2002 v the 87 Cup Legends.

The 30 guys who too part all received full match worn kit to keep and that would be my most treasured memento.

Everyone who was there will remember my full length, dive to the left, flying potato wondersave from a Lexy Richardson piledriver.

Campbell Money was brilliant, before kick off I said "got any advice for me Campbell?" After looking me up and down and taking in my athletic physique he said  "I think you should just stay in the dressing room".

I’ve still got a load of photos from that day T. I will dig them out. It might be worth creating a new topic dedicated to Saints Aid photos and stories.

@bungle_1981 bottom row far right.

On one of my trips up with @JimmyH (think it might have been the play off final second leg) we met that lad on the train back to Glasgow that night. Lovely lad. Even offered us some of his pakora!
