Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Major events covered during this time included: The famous victory over Rangers in the Scottish Cup, The Championship Season in the First Division 1988/89, The return to the Premier League, The signing of Istvan Kozma, home and away victories over Celtic and the Leishman Affair in the summer of 1990.

Editor: Sandy Fenwick

Parallel Lines

Launched one year after the last issue of WDTHR in Dec 1991, and running for two Issues.

The dark days of the Ian Munro era are over, new boss Jocky Scott is brought in to steady the ship and hopefully keep the Pars in the Premier League. He gets off to a good start by taking the club past Airdrie ( with a little help from referee Davie Syme ) to the final of the Skol Cup.  It looks like good times are just round the corner, and at the very least things can't get any worse ... can they?
