1970s supporters - quick question.

Recommended Posts

queensferryjambo

Hi,

 

Just looking for a wee bit of help from supporters in the 1970s who might have some info on the Hearts change kit of the mid 70s possibly 1976/77. This isn't the white and maroon kit with the thinner bar stripes and round neck like the ones worn in the Texaco Cup final programme.

 

Possibly somebody might have a colour photo of it being worn. Kit is definitely Umbro but even from the black and white photos the dark stripes look much darker than maroon home kit.

 

So my question is what colour were these kits thick stripes maroon? black? or dark blue?

Vague memory of it. Just maroon stripes I think. We had more to worry about than away strips that season. 😎

I am sure there was more than a few horrible weekends that season / rest of the decade. Thankfully I am one of the lucky Hearts fans who were too young to have suffered it.

Maroon and white. I remember them also from the collectible football cards of the day.

Will have a wee search of the cards as well. Good shout. Thanks for that

From the faces I can recognise in the squad (Cruikie, Roy Kay, Dave Sneddon, JJ, Willie Gibson, Drew Busby, Kenny Aird), it's definitely a mid-1970s team photo.  However, although I was watching Hearts home and away at that time, I have no recollection of that strip at all.

Found another black and white one vs Stirling Albion the cup apparently - worthy of posting anyway :)

Looking at the top photograph and remembering these first team players, how the f#ck did we get relegated? I was at every game that season, and this side was miles better than the '79 or '81 relegation teams.

Ralph Callahan and Eamon Bannon in the same team photo - my two big heroes of the post Busby / Ford era , but I think we sold Callahan to Newcastle before that awful 76/77 season even started

Yeah it doesn't look like it got much of a run out. When I have discussed it before people tended to get mixed up with the other earlier striped shirts with the thinner striped and round neck. I have found colour photos of that one but never the thicker striped one.

 

Here is the thinner striped one from the earlier 70s.

Away strips were quite a minor thing then and less used iirc.

Apologies I found this picture of a programme cover so looks like it was season 1975/76 not 76/77.

Donald Ford’s last game if I remember correctly 3-0 , the only cup tie we won in 90 minutes on our way to the final 75-76. The real misery started the next season 🙁

Interesting kick off time, most likely an international at Murray field.

 

There used to be a flood of rugby fans would enter when the gates would be opened with about 20 minutes remaining. No floodlights at Murray field back then.

Don’t really remember that strip sorry. 30 players in that the photo though and not many look particularly young.

Not Cammy, he is a bit younger than these. Clunie next to JJ.

It is annoying me who he is?

 

Someone, please.

I have a vague memory that the home team changed if there was a clash of colours at that time.

They were not away strips in those days. Teams only changed when there was a colour clash or it was needed for TV clarity (black and white was still dominant), and when they did it was always the home team that changed.

Don't think that is Dave Clunie-he'd be first team then-looks more like Drew Young. ( This is taken from a colour brochure the club put out -it's in my loft!)

It was an Umbro shirt, a maroon and white version of West Brom’s home shirt at that time. Liked it a lot, a pity it never went on sale.

I too think it’s Carruthers kicking.

 

In the picture of six, I reckon the second in from the right is Paul Rodger?

It’s definitely Clunie next to Jefferies.

100% bang on. I had been asking about the colour as I had seen the similarity to the West Brom ones of the time.

 

In fact I think the earlier striped shirt worn in the Texaco cup is pretty much the same as the West Brom kit of the same time as well (except they had a white round neck).

Think Don Murray signed from Cardiff Morgan. I could be wrong.

I think this is George (Sticky) Wood who never made it a Hearts unfortunately but he was a decent player as a youngster and moved to Dundee Utd but never made it there either.
