Saturday 1st May sees the 50th anniversary of Accies winning the Scottish Amateur Cup. The plans to celebrate the event have been curbed by the current social distancing measures. Nonetheless, they plan to mark the occasion as best they can at this point, then hold a sportsmans dinner at a later point when the social distancing restrictions ease. Attached a couple of pictures (the black & white ones) taken back in 1971.
