I remember the trophy won by the 1960's team. I'd hazard a guess the game took place in May/June 1964 and was contested against Polbeth. The match was played at Pumpherston Junior's ground and finished 3-3. The replayed match took place at East Calder and Addiewell ran out worthy winners 4-1. No nets were used in the replay and at the 3rd goal the ball actually went behind the post and stopped right behind the goalkeeper, the confused ref gave the goal. Two things stand out for me, the large crowd that turned up for both games and the bus ride through Loganlea after the game with Hugh Kelly sitting on the bonnet of the bus holding the cup aloft. Great memories, be nice to hear other peoples' recollection of this occasion
