I’m sure he made a appearance for us. Scored a few for that mob down the road. Maybe someone can confirm.

Willie Irvine definitely played for Hearts, just a couple of games from memory.

 

Are we talking this Willie Irvine ?

Did he not have the boozer in Rose Street called Blythe Spirit?

He certainly did.  👍

 

Almost opposite the Gordon Arms, I seem to recall.

I remember Ludek Straceny being absolutely murder in his 2 brief appearances. Which is a surprise as he had a decent career back home in the Czech Republic. I’m sure there’s been worse than him, over a more prolonged period, but he always sticks in my mind for some reason.

Willie Irvine played in a couple of friendlies in the summer of ‘86.

 

Didn't know that- couldn't remember him even being at Hearts

I’m pretty sure it was a tournament on the Isle of Man and the only game I saw him was coming on as a sub v Watford in a preseason friendly at Tynie.

 

And unless I’m mistaken.....I went to that game thinking we’d signed John Brown from Dundee and he might play...but the deal had fallen through.

I definitely remember him warming up at the school end as a sub and it was sunny so would have been the Watford game.

It was.

Thanks, Ron.

 

I think it became an Irish theme bar sometime after that?

Bannon played for Hearts, Hibs and Spartans. Not the same but still on theme I reckon.

 

Unfortunately played one game for Hibs - a real stain on his career.

I can forgive him, I really liked him as a player. I was too young to remember him first time round but a quality operator.

Had to sell him to Chelsea. Desperate for cash

😂 Forgot about that. His team mates used to kick the ball at his head in the hope it would deflect for a goal.

Although technically the same club as Meadowbank, Jackson also played for Livingston.

And funnily it was against us 😁.

 

We won 1-0 and im pretty certain it was Bannon who was “eased” out the road just before we put the ball in the net for the winner. 🤔

Played against Bohemians of Dublin and scored in the IOM tournament in 1986, and against Watford at Tynecastle a week later, wasn’t offered a deal
