Unloading and parking on Provost Road. Tram drivers got into the match for free and this day the driver of the last tram in the convoy, in a special hurry to get into the match, omitted to put on the tram brake. The tram, sitting on a brae, started to run down Provost Road. A policeman spotted the runaway tram and stopped all the traffic coming down Moncur Crescent, to let the tram run past, it came to a stop at Isla Street because of the gradient there. No one was hurt.</p> Isla Street Moncur Crescent Provost Road 1950's Dundee Football Club Football Trams James Valentine Clepington Tue, 15 Mar 2011 14:36:16 +0000 lynne.davidson 682 at Football Greats <p>I presented 'Player of the Month Trophy' in the dressing room at Tannadice from 1980-88 when Jim McLean and Walter Smith were in charge. I was introduced to Jock Stein in 1982 in the dressing room. I made great friends with Hamish, Paul, Maurice and Physco, these memories will be in my soul till I die. Thank you Dundee United.</p> Tannadice Street 1980's Dundee United Football Club Football Sport Cameron McBain Clepington Thu, 03 Mar 2011 11:49:25 +0000 lynne.davidson 592 at Football Tales <p>I was at the United V's Hearts match last season when United won 3-0. Near the end of the match, the shed end started singing "we want four", because the team were dominating the match. Another man then shouted "gee's another one for my Angie". Another memory is of the woman who is always sitting behind us in the George Fox lower. She always cheers us up with her cheeky comments. Bless her!</p> Tannadice Street 2000 to present Football Bean (Foxy Lady) Clepington Wed, 02 Mar 2011 15:38:25 +0000 lynne.davidson 578 at
