Stewart campbell was my dad so it's nice reading all these posts :)

Hello Chatter,

I remember talking to your Dad....I was 9 & he was 20+ on Hallidays Rd and as he was talking Mickey Mc Williams came out of my school and they exchanged pleasantries and a nod. He was a classy player. He was on Hallidays Rd as a friend of mine was related to him....Ken Lavery?  Mickey Mc Williams was Capt of Linfield and Capt of Irish Amateur Team.  It was a great moment for me as a bloke ( he was 11 ) couldn't understand how Mickey Mc Williams could be Capt of Linfield and be a teacher in a Catholic school but Stewartie could and just smiled.  They were comrades and both were nice people. :D
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

Tommy Moffatt in the Ards goal is nowhere near it!

Here are the teams for the ICF in 1957

Glenavon: Rea, Armstrong, Lyske, Corr, Davis, Cush, Wilson, McVeigh, Jones, Campbell, Elwood.

Derry City: Heffron, Kinnen, Houston, Brolly, Travers, Smyth, Wright, Crossan, Campbell, Coyle, Nash.

Played at Windsor Park, Glenavon won 2 - 0
Scorers : Houston (og) , Jones.
Attendance: 23,000

Jackie Denver had just retired a few months earlier, hence 'TwinkleToes' McVeigh at inside-right, normally he'd have been the left winger but Joe Elwood (soon to go to Leyton Orient) was certainly a fitting replacement. The Lurgan Blues had 4 NI internationals in that line-up, Roy Rea, Billy Cush, Sammy Wilson and Big Jimmy.

Great teams and great players in the Irish League in the 40's, 50's & 1960's. some great International matches at Windsor Park in that era also. Saw some of the greats.  :)

There were some great International games at Windsor although I never started going to them until the mid sixties onward.

I know that this thread is about the Irish League but have just watched a little of the N.Ireland v Korea game on pay T.V.   Was it North Korea or South Korea.  The pitch was in great condition, the sun was shining and Noth Ireland seemed to be playing well. :)

Does anyone remember the Distillery goalkeeper from the 1960's called Mike Pinner ?? Think he was an englishman and possibly played for Man Utd at some stage.

I remember Mike Pinner, the black cat because he wore black shirt and shorts. Maybe that was the colours of Distillery or did all keepers wear black?

I also remember that at half time opposing fans would change ends to be behind their own keeper.
The 2 sets of fans would walk clockwise at the same time to avoid a confrontation.

        Mike Pinner held the record of having the most Amateur International Caps , now I am not sure if he still holds that record .
