we also beat Flamenco 9-3 and Falkirk 9-1 in the 50's/60's

 

 

Was it not the case that we were nine up at half-time in that Falkirk game?

I seem to recollect us putting 10 past Hamilton Accies in the late 1960's and I'm pretty sure Joe Wark scored a hat-trick.

Not sure if it was a friendly, or maybe even the Lanarkshire Cup.

The Flamengo game was in 1960.

 

Flamengo were Brazilian Champions at the time and had three or four players from the Brazilian 1958 World Cup winning squad in their team. They had a winger called Baba who was supposed to be brilliant.

They played Hibs on the Saturday and drew 1 all.

 

They came to the Ark on the Wednesday.

 

I was there and managed to get the full squads autographs on the programme.

Flamengo played very well and were winning 2-1 at half time.

 

Motherwell came out and scored 8 goals in the second half, St. John got 5.

 

Final score: Motherwell 9 --Flamengo 2

:P
