AC Milanda at Toryglen in 1979. Still the oldest line up photograph we have. This photograph is taken by John O'Keane who was injured at the time. it's his son Martin who is the mascot.
Back row left to right - Gerry McGinty, Dougie Vietch, Jim Tulips, Scott Sorenson, Danny McGinty, and Alan Ferguson.
Front row left to right - Colin Stewart, John Moran, Ian Russell, John McCormack, Martin O'Keane (Mascot) and Ian Wilson.
This photograph was sent in by John O'Keane and is taken from the Milanda tour of Munich in October 1979. It's a bit out of focus.
Back row left to right John O'Keane, Stirling Reid, Dixie Dixon, Al Devine, Scott Sorenson, John McCormick, Tom Kirk, Gerry McGinty.
Front row left to right - Colin Stewart, Alan Ferguson, Chick Young, John Moran.
This photograph was sent to us by Jim Tulips. Taken at Glasgow Green in perfect football conditions by Alistair Devine. Think this one is from the 80/81 season.

AC Milanda 1985 Runners Up GDSML Cup Final
Back row left to right - Mark Andrson, Alistair Devine Davie Livingstone, Alan McMillan, Harry Dollin, Gerry Duffy, Kevin Williamson, Scott Anderson
Front row - John McCormack, Colin Stewart, Chick Young, Donald Leary, Gerry McGinty, Gordon Philip
The Cup Final line up from May 1985 which unfortunately Milanda lost 6-4 in extra time after drawing 4-4 after 90 mins. Milanda weren't given much of a chance but proved everyone wrong and were unlucky not to win it.
Looks like Gerry Duffy was so relaxed he's fallen asleep standing up and really words fail me about a certain Mr Williamson in the back row. he could have got his haircut for such an important game.
AC Milanda 1986 - 87
Back row left to right - Colin Stewart, Chick Young, Russell Stewart, Alan McMillan, Les Craib, Kevin Williamson, Tommy Maher
Front row - Jim Donachie, Jock Collins, Donald Leary, Davie McGhee, Harry Dollin, Mark Cunningham
Well where do you start. Kevin has hair and lots of it. Chick shows Kevin and Tommy what it'll be like 15 years down the road. A young Mr Leary looks as if he's still pissed from the night before.
AC Milanda 1988 - 89
Back row left to right - Danny Rennie, Alex Wood, Scott Grant, Kevin Williamson, Brain Dunn, Jim Donachie
Front row - Harry Dollin, Mark Cunningham, Jim Watret, Alan McMillan, Tommy Maher, Alex Fitzpatrick, Davie McFarlane.
Taken at Milanda's spirtual home of Greenfield, pitch three to be precise. Think we could have moved a bit to the right to be in line with the goals? Al Devine would have set it up right.
AC Milanda 1991
Back row left to right - Iain McPhedran, Martin Barlow, Mark Anderson, Scott Grant, Brian Dunn, Davie Souter, Jim Donachie, David Livingstone
Front row - Alex Fitzpatrick, Jim Watret, Alan McMillan, Mark Cunningham, Harry Dollin, Tommy Maher.
Only David Livingstone failed to put the arm folding classes into practice but he did always liked to stand apart from the crowd. Picture contains 8 former Milanda players of the year.
AC Milanda 1993 Back row left to right - Jamie Stuart, Iain McPhedran, Alan McMillan, Brian Dunn, Scott Grant, Jim Donachie Front row - Brain langan, Richard Stuart, Harry Dollin, Alex Fitzpatrick, Tommy Maher.
Strip starts to look a bit tight on Mr Dunn. Must have shrunk in the wash. I seem to remember we got a free course of pakora from the Ashoka on a Milanda night out. I think it was sympathy pakora. This one looks as if it was taken at the racecourse in Paisley with the building of the motorway behind them. Either that or that crane in the background was used to manoeuvre Brian into the team pic.
AC Milanda 1999 - Winners McManus Shield
Back row left to right - George Inglis, Steve Walker, Chris Preston, Jim Binnie, Willie Leary, Graeme Hyslop, Jim Donachie, John Soutar
Front Row - Kevin Williamson, Stephen Dollin, Harry Dollin, Scott Grant, Bruce Fitzpatrick, Brian Dunn, Doinald Leary.
Milanda win a trophy at last. A hard fought 3-2 victory against Budhill at Shettleston Juniors ground. Kevin and Brian appear to go the same barbers. Only 10 years before Kevin had enough hair for both of them. The dangers of playing for Milanda.
AC Milanda 2000 May Pic1 Back row left to right - Greame Hyslop, Greame Thomson, Chris preston, Scott Grant, Steve Walker, Jim Donachie, John Soutar
Front row - George Inglis, Donald Leary, Willie Leary, Harry Dollin.
Must have been a struggle to get a team this day. Two goalkeepers and Hyssie is stripped for action and no subs.
AC Milanda 2000 May Pic2
Back row left to right Mark Anderson, Kevin Williamson, Chris Preston, Scott Grant, Jim Binnie, Dave Crawford
Scott Preston (and dog), John Simpson, Bruce Fitzpatrick, Harry Dollin, John Soutar.
Probably one of the worst team photographs ever taken. with only 6 players looking at the camera. not sure what Bruce is doing but it probably involves some complicated goals/ratio calculation. It does show the depth of the Milanda squad with 7 players not in the other May 2000 photo. Must be near the end of the season as Dave Crawford makes his annual summer appearance.
AC Milanda 2001 - 2002
Back row left to right - Chris Preston, Graeme Hyslop, Steve Walker, Owen Ritchie, Kevin Williamson, Scott Grant, Ross Lockhart, Scott Malcolm
Front row - Craig Fawns, Thomas Addison, Bruce Fitzpatrick, John Soutar, Jim Binnie.
Taken at Milanda's new home pitch, Temple in Anniesland before the last game of the 2001-2002 season. Bruce again has problems keeping his eyes open for the camera. Chris's goalkeepers top is ehmmm stunning.
AC Milanda 2002 - 2003 Runners Up Vince McGlinchey Trophy
Back row left to right - Alan McMillan, Ross Lockhart, Kevin Williamson, Chris Preston, Brian Dunn, Scott Preston, Bruce Fitpatrick, Martin Coyle, Graeme Hyslop, Scott Grant, Andy Wilson, Steve Walker, Craig Fawns
Front row - John Soutar, Donald Leary, Paul Murray, Mark Callender, Jim Binnie, Thomas Addison.
You can tell it's a Cup Final as 18 players turned up. Well 18 turned up on time. One of the worst Cup Finals anyone can ever remember was lost 1-0 to Ferguslie Park at Benburb Juniors ground. Can't think of one positive thing to come out of this game.
AC Milanda 2002 - 2003 Winners Referees Shield
Back row left to right - John Soutar, Martin Coyle, Scott Preston, Thomas Addison, Craig Fawns, Graeme Hyslop, Alan McMillan, Scott Grant, Brian Dunn, Kevin Williamson
Front row - Mark Callender, Bruce Fitzpatrick, Andy Wilson, Paul Murray, Jim Binnie, Donald Leary, Steve Walker.
Winning the Referee's Shield made up for the disappointment of the Vince McGlinchey. Milanda stormed back from 3-0 down to win 6-3 after extra time including a stunning strike from Thomas Addison who modestly refused to talk about his goal after the game. Celebration and joy unconfined. Jumpin Jaks didn't know what hit it.
AC Milanda 2005
Back row left to right - Martin Coyle, Brian Dunn, Scott Preston, Andy Wilson, Kevin Williamson, Stuart Mackenzie, Graeme Hyslop
Front row - Andy Scott, Mark Reid, Chris Preston, Mark Callender, Thomas Addison, Craig Fawns.
Final match of the 2005 season with little left to play for so Hyssie got a game. Given it was only last season three of the players in the picture haven't kicked a ball for Milanda since. Although Alan might be inclined to include a few more.
