We have now received permission from The Sunday Herald to publish the article on Queen's, so if you want to read a bit of quality journalism on this site for a change click HERE.

Updated 11th May 1999

Newspaper coverage of Queen's over the last few days has been unusually high. On Sunday the Herald had an excellent article pointing out the miracle that Mess'rs Rowe and Eadie have performed over the past few months. If we obtain permission from the newspaper we will reproduce it in full. Also in the same supplement their "whensundaycomes" columnist Ron McKay devotes few inches to "German Queens on the net", a story of the German Queen's fanclub from Wuppertaler who have forged a link with one of the Queen's websites.

The papers today, naturally feature the transfer of Jamie McAllister to Aberdeen, but lurking away in the back pages are another couple of little references. There's the story that ex-boss Rowan Alexander is off to America to coach "soccer" at Sports Camps and may stay longer than his ten week stint if he enjoys it, good luck Rowan. The final reference is a refreshing change to the Daily Record Hotline, not just Rangers or Celtic callers this week, but a Queen's fan from Bracknell who has phoned up to congratulated Ken Eadie and George Rowe for their efforts this year.

Updated 10th May 1999

Aberdeen this afternoon formally signed Queen's twenty one year old left back Jamie McAllister on a three year deal

Aberdeen manager Paul Hegarty said, "Jamie is a bright young player who we have been watching for some time. He is strong on the ball with a good left foot and although we've signed him with a long term view, I am looking for him to be challenging for a place on the first team squad before too long."

George Rowe was up in Aberdeen today with two more Queen's players. Dennis Boyle and Andy Aitken will spend this week training with the Dons. Paul Hegarty is quoted as saying, "Queen of the South have been excellent to deal with and with their season now finished they have allowed us to have a look at two of their other promising youngsters. By spending a few days here we can have a good look at them and see how they compare to those already on our books."

Everyone at Palmerston wishes Jamie well with his new club and are sure that both Andy and Dennis will show up well in their weeks trial.

Updated 7th May 1999

An eventful season draws to a close on Saturday with the visit of a team who have enjoyed almost as eventful a season themselves. Partick Thistle, like Queen's began the season with a different management team than they started it with. Our own Tam Bryce began his short managerial career at Firhill with the Jags but possibly underestimated the size of the task in hand. After a poor run of form early in the year Thistle eventually and under much pressure from the Jags fan's moved Tam over to make way for the returning John Lambie. It has to be said though that the effect of Lambies return did not seem to make a lot of difference to the Jags as it took until just last week for them to register their first win under new management.

With both Partick and Queens now safe from relegation the scene should be set for an entertaining competition with both sides preparing for next season and a number of Queen's players playing for a new contract. It is hoped that the majority of the team will re-sign on Saturday as all the players that the management duo of Rowe and Eadie wish to retain have been offered new contracts and will hopefully want to settle things promptly.

Team news this week sees Steven Leslie available for selection, Jim Thompson again doubtful due to a niggling injury picked up in a reserve game and George Rowe still missing due to suspension. It is likely that the back four will remain as last week purely due to their tremendous performance in keeping a clean sheet against a hardworking Arbroath side at Gayfield.

Updated 30th April 1999

This is the deal, if any of the following happen on Saturday Queens remain in the Second Division, Partick Thistle lose or draw, East Fife lose or draw or Queens win or draw. Also if Stirling Albion lose then they would have to win the last match by a cricket score and Queens would have to lose the last two games by unrealistic margins. Lets hope however that Queens take control of their own destiny and exact revenge on the Arbroath team who have taken four points off us this season so far.

The men from Arbroath are level on points with us and only a much poorer goal difference keeps us up in fourth place. In terms of last six match form Queens are again just out in front of Arbroath with Caley Thistle just edging it from Queens at the top of the form league.

Team news this week is that the suspended George Rowe will be replaced by comeback man Jim Thomson, Steven Leslie will sit out his last game of this suspension period and Denis Boyle will be given another chance to turn in as impressive performance as that last week against Clyde. Super Sub Brian Caldwell will be pressuring Mark Weir hard for a starting place.

Keep an eye out on Clyde, remember they can finish below us if they lose the last two and we win them, we could still get promoted yet!

Updated 28th April 1999

David Mathieson steals some of the headlines in the press today, unfortunately for the wrong reason. His reported error of judgement in the closing stages of the Under 21 match versus Germany last night gave away a penalty from which the Germans scored to take a 2-0 lead. The young Scots pulling back a late goal to finish the match 2-1, not a bad result when considering the quality of the opposition.

Updated 23rd April 1999

Newly appointed First team coaches for season 1999/2000, George Rowe and Ken Eadie have another mammoth game tomorrow at Palmerston with the visit of already safe Clyde. Theoretically Queen's can still match Clyde for points and would win third place on goal difference if we did accumulate the points, this could, if the ailing Clydebank do go under at the end of the season, mean a possible promotion place fro Queen's. Which just goes to show what an amazingly tight league this Second Division is this year when with only three matches to go we are talking about either promotion or relegation in the same breath with neither mathematically impossible.

Back to reality however and what Queen's must do tomorrow to ease the spectre of relegation that presently hangs around our and another six teams necks. Certainly a win against Clyde will be crucial if we are to end the uncertainty before that last game of the season versus Partick Thistle at Palmerston.

Our visitors this weekend are Ronnie MacDonald's strong and uncompromising direct ball players of Clyde. Our previous contests have proven to be quite bruising affairs with the skilful play of Queen's generally being thwarted by some resolute marking. This weekend's game should be no different as the pride of the Clyde team will be enough to drive them on to attempt to record their third win of the season against us. All of the matches so far have been close affairs with Queen's sole victory coming back at Palmerston in October when the then strike partnership of Mallan and Eadie notched the goals that gave Queen's a 2-1 win.

The team will feature the familiar faces of recent weeks with only Steven Leslie missing through suspension, Derek Townsley has however recovered well from his bout of tonsillitis that kept him out last weekend in the 1-1 draw with Caley Thistle. Missing after tomorrow's match, more significantly, will be George Rowe who will miss the remainder of this season and the first game of next season, however a more than able replacement should be available, even for the Clyde game, as big Jim Thomson makes his long awaited return from injury, suspension and injury again. Hopefully this will enable the settled defence to continue in its scrooge like manner over the last two matches without disruption.

David Mathieson has been named in the Scotland Under 21 squad for the game versus Germany on the 27th April. This comes as no surprise to anyone at Palmerston as David has been outstanding for the best part of this season and has recaptured the form that saw him win his first Under 21 cap last season.

Updated 16th April 1999

With only four games to play and only four points separating Queen's from a relegation place tomorrow's game against our friends from the North, Caley Thistle, is another crucial encounter. Caley have other concerns with them in the midst of a ding dong battle with Livingston for the Championship, they will be more than fired up for the battle at Palmerston, especially considering that they are the form team in the division, along with Queen's, at the moment so a classic footballing encounter is anticipated. Queen's will be determined to show that last week's shock defeat away at bogey team Forfar, in conditions that made playing football impossible, was just a blip. Indeed co-manager Ken Eadie knows that the players will need no additional motivation for tomorrow's crunch game.

On the team front Queen's will be largely unchanged tomorrow, all players being free from suspension, Steve Leslie's doesn't start until after the match. Jim Thomson will miss the game again this week as his stitches haven't been removed yet.

Look out for news coming up on the shirt sponsorship draw for season 1999/2000. Details soon, so start pestering your bosses now!!

Updated 10th April 1999

We hear that ex-Queen's player and the lad who entertained the 10 000 at the Challenge Cup Final so well with his interpretation of Dougie the Doonhamer, Liam Armstrong has now joined the Royal Marines and is presently undergoing their strict training regime down in Cornwall.

Updated 9th April 1999

This Saturday afternoon sees Queen's face what may prove to be a very difficult match away at Station Park against Forfar Athletic. To date this season Forfar have had the best of the encounters, with two wins, one at Station Park, the other only eight games ago at Palmerston when Queen's turned in one of their worst performances of the season and certainly the worst under the management of George Rowe and Ken Eadie. Revenge for that defeat in particular should be enough to dispel any complacency, along with the recent record of the Loons who have taken some impressive scalps in recent weeks.

The Queen's line-up is likely to be exactly the same as that last week as Jim Thompson inflicted more damage to his gashed leg in a Southern Counties Challenge Cup game versus Annan Athletic on Monday evening and Alex Nesovic is unlikely to force his way back in to the team this week, mainly due to the form of the players in his favoured position. George Rowe however is almost certain to play after coming off as a precaution against East Fife after sustaining a slight injury.

The Under eighteen's carried on their strong form with a 5-0 demolition of East Stirling on Thursday night, goals coming from Caldwell x 2, Weir, Mason and McCaig. They will also play on Saturday afternoon against Forfar, although will obviously miss those key players who will be on first team duty.

Keep your eyes on the members section as we have obtained through Queen's Museum Curator, Ian Black, some video footage of Queen's from the thirties and fifties. In particular we have the highlight of the Scottish Cup match in 1937 where we knocked out Rangers in the first round 1-0, unfortunately the cine cameraman missed the goal. We also have the game versus Hearts when Palmerston Park managed to house 25000 fans, you can download this match now by going to this week's fan profile section. Our thanks go to Ian Black for his kindness in providing this action.

Updated 5th April 1999

A reasonably strong Queen's side crashed out of the Southern Counties Challenge Cup this evening going down 2-1 to Annan Athletic at Galabank. The game was scheduled for a 6:30pm kick off but was brought forward by some fifteen minutes due to the heavily overcast weather conditions. In truth the level of light for much of the second half made viewing the match almost impossible.

The match itself was not a classic but with Annan at full strength and Queen's with Alex Nesovic, Jim Thompson, Mark Weir, Gary Russell and Dennis Boyle playing a close encounter was expected. Half time came and the match was level at 0-0, a shortened half time break saw Annan come out and immediately score the opener through, ten minutes further into the half and Annan made it two through a ruck of defenders. Queen's dominated the rest of the half and had a number of chances but had no one with the clinical finishing ability to capitalise on the chances made, although Mason scored late on to make the final score 2-1 and put Annan into the semi-final.

Updated 2nd April 1999

It's back to a full league fixture list tomorrow with Queens welcoming East Fife to Palmerston. It will be co-managers George Rowe and Ken Eadie's eleventh game in charge with their team equal with Inverness at the top of the current form league. With East Fife also battling for their Second Division life the match is sure to be passion filled with no compromises asked or given. An added edge will also be evident with the recent signing of ex-Queens midfielder Steve "Spider" Ramsey who Palmerston fans know all about his uncompromising style. The Fifer's player manager Stevie Kirk is also assured of a warm welcome from the management team, particularly Geordie Rowe.

Team news from Palmerston is that the team will be largely the same as last week, although David Lilley will more than likely slot back into right back position after his one match ban, whilst the now suspension free Jim Thompson is unlikely to make the team after cutting his leg in a midweek training session at the Tech College which required stitches, it's just not been the big man's year this year.

All Queens fans in the Annan area and of which there are a good few, should get themselves along to Galabank on Monday evening for a 6:30 kick off when Queens take on Annan Athletic in a Southern Counties Cup Competition, there may well be a few familiar faces in the team, and for that matter in the Annan team.

Updated 26th March 1999

With no Scottish fixtures and now no National team fixture due to the International crisis in Serbia, Queen's players are spending the weekend together. Saturday sees a training session in Dumfries, after which the boys leave for Blackpool for a well earned break and, of course, some more training, possibly the sand dunes at St. Annes.

A trip to the World famous Please Beach is not really needed as Queen's have already had a 'roller coaster' season with a little bit of a manager 'merry go round' and you have to admit that some of the performances would merit inclusion in the most scariest of 'houses of horrors'. Apologies in advance to anyone offended by that last paragraph.

Back to more serious matters and our congratulations go out to Donna Clachrie who not only turned out for the Under 18 Scottish team last weekend in front of 3000 spectators in Paris but was also honoured by being named as captain for the fixture. Donna turned in a splendid performance and although the Scots lost the match 2-0 the performance of all the Scottish ladies was to be commended, particularly as the French have a lot more experience at this level of football than we do.

Tommy Bryce has now formally completed his transfer back to Palmerston from Partick after turning out last weekend as a trialist. Tam has signed until the end of the season. A number of clubs are showing interest in more than one Queens player at the moment, although this is to be expected considering the form of the team as a whole.

Hopefully during the next few days there will be some more live action footage from past Queens games to add to the members section so keep visiting. Any problems that you may have downloading the clips just e-mail me and describe the problem, it would also be appreciated if someone could let me know that the clips work OK on their machines.

Updated 20th March 1999

Tommy Bryce has made a dramatic comeback to Palmerston today, signing for the third time only nine months after departing for his spell as Partick Thistle manager. Tam started today on the bench but his return will be welcomed by every Queens fan as his presence at Palmerston has always been inspirational. Just in case you have forgotten what Tam can do, click HERE to refresh your memory. Be patient with the graphic that appears and wait until all the frames have downloaded, it will then run and recycle itself.

Members of the International Supporters Association can now download video clips of Queens in action. If you go to the page that contains the recent match photos you will see that it has been expanded to include the TVROOM as well.

This weekend sees us traveling up to visit our old friends at Alloa. Their recent form is pretty good although not as good as Queens and with Alloa on home turf this will be another difficult game. Master tactician Terry "The Duffle" Christie will have his team well organised and undoubtedly he will be well aware of the main source of Queens inspiration, so expect some close marking in those areas.

Team news is that Stevie Mallan makes it back into the squad but with Charlie Adams scoring in both of the games where he has replaced Stevie there is a strong case for Stevie to keep the bench warm, unless that is he has a secret yearning to become a right back as this will be the only problem area for Queens. Rather than reshuffle though, it is likely that one of the promising youngsters from the Under 18 team will be drafted in.

An interesting article in this weeks Cumberland News on ex-Queens player Chris Balderston who lives just outside Carlisle at Dalston. Apparently Chris is off to this summer's Cricket World Cup as a third umpire. He is rated in the top eight in the UK and if he can progress into the top four could get to umpire at test matches. Anyone who was around to witness his performances in the late seventies at the twilight of his footballing career would agree that he was one of the classiest players to have put on the Queen's jersey.

Updated 12th March 1999

Another crucial game this week, although this one should prove to be the most testing of all those recently as Queens travel up and across to Almondvale Stadium, home of first division bound Livingston.

The teamsheet this week should have a familiar look to it with no changes envisaged although Dennis Boyle's ankle injury may well be clear in time for Saturday. Stevie Mallan finishes his suspension after tomorrow's game, but may find it difficult getting back into the team if Charlie Adams puts in another goalscoring display. Jim Thompson will have one more game to go after tomorrow before he becomes eligible again but he may find it even more difficult to re-establish himself in the team after missing virtually the whole of this year so far through suspensions and injury.

Two defeats and one draw are the stats for the games played between the two sides so far this season but Queens can take heart from the match in December when a ding dong encounter ended with honours even.

Updated 9th March 1999

It appears that Ex-Queens favourite Tommy Bryce has been sacked, or at least relieved of the managers job at Partick Thistle. Some reports claim that Tam will remain on as a player others that he is seeking legal advice. In any case it is unfortunate that Tam was not given the chance to show the Partick public what he was really capable of.

Updated 5th March 1999

Same preview this week as the last three or four, a game we must win a real six pointer. Stirling Albion at home we win, Arbroath and East Fife loose we go seventh and get within touching distance of Stirling and Partick, that would be nice and that's the master plan. But wait a minute, Stirling Albion, bogey team up until six weeks ago we had never beaten the Beanos in a league game, (but remember the win in the Challenge Cup), since 1989. Worse than that we had never beaten them in Stirling since 1970 but six weeks ago in only the joint bosses second game in charge we went up to Stirling and notched a comprehensive 3-1 victory, hopefully that's laid the bogey to rest and we can walk out tomorrow confident of completing our part of the master plan.

Stevie, Marv, Mallan sits out tomorrow and next week up at Livingston due to accumulated points, big JT is still out on his third of five match suspensions and youngster Gary Russell looks unlikely to make it as he's laid up in bed with flu, the chances are he'd have been on the bench anyway. The loss of Stevie Mallan is the biggest blow, his recent form including both his goals at Partick and his effective off the ball running last week versus Arbroath will be missed. This means however that rather than tinker with the formation Queens may well look for a ready made Stevie replacement, Alex Nesovic could fit the bill but either Charlie Adams or Lee Bailey may stake a claim, then there is impressive youngster Brian Caldwell just itching to get another chance.

For those of you statistically minded Queens are third in the last six match league table and Stirling second bottom. In the First half performances league table Queens figure in sixth place surprisingly and Stirling again second bottom. However in the Second half performances table Stirling lie fifth and Queens second bottom so basically look out for a good second half from the men from Forthbank.

Updated 26th February 1999

It's crunch time tomorrow at Palmerston with the visit of David Baikies Arbroath side. Queen's have not managed to defeat the Red Lichties in the two previous encounters this season despite Queens putting nine goals by them in three Cup games last term. Hopefully it will be a resumption of normal service tomorrow with the team continuing the form displayed last week at Partick.

Team news from Palmerston is that Dennis Boyle will be sidelined for at least a couple of weeks as he has a chipped bone in his ankle. Jim Thompson will watch from the stand again as he serves the second of his five match ban and Stevie Mallan will play his last game tomorrow before serving a one match ban for accumulated disciplinary points.

Midweek saw Queens have the honor of helping Billy Sim's Threave Rovers open their new floodlights, although we weren't the ideal guests coming away with a 4-2 victory. Scorers for Queens were Mark Weir with two, Brian Caldwell and Jim Thompson.

Some excellent news from the ladies team where Donna Clachrie has been invited to the Scottish ladies team trials next week, good luck Donna.

Co-manager Ken Eadie celebrates his 38th birthday today whilst long term injury victim Craig Potts was 25 yesterday.

We have also received best wishes for this weekends important game from Adrian Fitzgerald and his Sydney, Australia contingent of Queen's fans, (See fan profile) and from Andreas in Germany who also supports Hamburger SV and sends his regards to Ian, Craig, Ross and their families in Dumfries. Their international support is greatly appreciated.

Updated 19th February 1999

Our final visit to Firhill comes around on Saturday when we will again cross swords with ex-Doonhamers Tam Bryce, Des McKeown, David Kennedy and Craig Flannagan. A win is critical for Queens and important for Partick who are going through a bad spell themselves of late.

The team is likely to be similar to that which started last week with the obvious exception of eighty five minute man Jim Thompson who no sooner came back from a lengthy suspension than found himself with another five game ban, it's just not been big JT's season this year.

Updated 12th February 1999

The team and officials set off in good spirits this evening on the long trip North to Inverness. Despite last weeks disappointing display at Palmerston against Forfar Athletic co-managers George Rowe and Ken Eadie remain in positive mood and are convinced that last week's reverse was a one off.

On the team front all of the players are free from injury and suspensions so George and Ken will have the difficult task of deciding on who makes way if anyone this week. Certainly a candidate for a starting place this week would have to be Derek Townsley after he spent twenty minutes on the park on Saturday and produced probably most of the chances that Queen's generated in the whole game. The ever steady Jim Thomson may also force his way back in to the defence which looked shaky at times against the Forfar front men.

Updated 5th February 1999

Palmerston is set for what may turn out to be one of the most important games of the season tomorrow when Ian McPhee's Forfar Athletic visit. Forfar are the only team below Queens in the league and lie with eight points less but have a game in hand and may just have found some form coming off a good 3-1 win against promotion chasing Clyde in midweek.

In anyone's language the game is a real six pointer, Queens desperately need to close the gap on the group above and remove Forfar from the equation by recording a resounding win. Forfar on the other hand would have their task made almost impossible if they fall a further three points behind, so both teams will no doubt set out with conviction come three o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

Team news for Queens is that 18 year old midfielder Gary Russell has been signed and joins the squad after playing the last three games as a trialist, Jim Thompson is now free from both suspension and injury, Derek Townsley could appear as he has just about recovered from a groin strain that kept him out last week, Steven Leslie, Marc Cleeland and Dennis Boyle are all also available for selection. The only two players who will almost certainly miss out are Craig Potts with his long term injury and co-manager Ken Eadie who is now suffering with the flu and might not even make it down to Palmerston for the game.

On the managerial front there has been no adverts placed for the position of manager and there are no plans for any adverts to be placed at this time. The present arrangement with both George Rowe and Ken Eadie running team affairs is set to continue for the foreseeable future.

Two under 18 games are coming up this week in what has been an outstanding season for this team, on Saturday afternoon at 2.30pm they will entertain Forfar Athletic at the Crichton and on Wednesday evening at 7.30pm will entertain East Stirlingshire at Palmerston. The under eighteen's have an extremely good chance of winning the league this year and your support on Wednesday evening would be appreciated.

Updated 29:01:99

We welcome Terry Christie back to Palmerston tomorrow with his new charges Alloa Athletic. Terry joined Alloa from Stenhousemuir after presiding over the Warriors Scottish Cup match against Rangers at Ibrox, a fitting way to end his successful spell in charge at Ochilview. Terry replaces Tom Hendrie who recently took up the managers role at St.Mirren.

More familiar faces should be on show tomorrow with ex-Doonhamers Steve (Spider) Ramsey and Stuart Wilson regulars in the Alloa team. Queens team will still be missing Jim Thompson, Ken Eadie and Craig Potts, although Derek Townsley will be available after missing the midweek victory over Stirling Albion due to traffic problems on the M74. Doubtful is on form and new found striker Alex Nesovic, after scoring three goal in the last three games, the last two games playing up front, Naz picked up a slight injury to his leg playing against Stirling Albion and may miss out tomorrow.

Gary Russell the eighteen year old trialist from Ayrshire junior club Irvine Meadow is likely to be given a further two chances to impress before his trial period is up and on loan striker Gareth Armstrong also has another two games to unleash the potential that he has demonstrated so far.

A large crowd is hoped for and a vocal support is asked for to stimulate the players and ensure that our climb up the league table is a rapid one.

The much re-arranged Second Division encounter between Queens and Stirling Albion looks set to go ahead tomorrow evening at Forthbank Stadium. Queens will welcome back to the squad Marc Cleeland and Derek Townsley, only Jim Thompson remains on the suspension list.

Team selection will again be handled by the duo of George Rowe and Ken Eadie with both keen to consolidate their winning start at East Fife by conquering the Beanos. A win would of course put Queens within one point of East Fife and on the same number of games, putting a whole new complexion on our position as it looked at the start of the month.

Updated 16:01:99

The First Division game today between Clydebank and St Mirren saw two former Queens players coming head to head. Tom Turner captaining St Mirren and Graeme Love making his Clydebank debut after signing a one month contract with the Boghead club. Unfortunately for Graeme things didn't go too well as he was credited with an own goal after 37 minutes and was then substituted in the 70th minute.

Updated 15:01:99

Some good news today is that Dennis Boyle has been included in the Northern Irish squad of players that are to report for a training camp at Lilleshall in February. The camp is in preparation for the under 18 European Championship games against the Republic of Ireland in March and April.

Please also note that this Sundays match at New Bayview Stadium versus East Fife has a 2:00 PM kick off due to the lack of floodlights.

Another e-mail received this week at Palmerston:- "Good luck for the Match against East Five!, The 4 Germans, Supporters of Hamburger SV!".

Updated 13:01:99

The following statement was released yesterday from Palmerston, "Queen of the South Football Club regret to announce that following a meeting of the Directors and First Team Coach today, Mr Rowan Alexander has left the Club.

The Club wish to thank Mr Alexander for his contribution over the last 3 years and wish him success in the future."

Club Captain George Rowe will assume responsibility for the first team training and preparation for the Match at New Bayview on Sunday 17 January. He will be without the suspended Jim Thomson, Marc Cleeland and Derek Townsley, however Steven Leslie is available again after suspension.

The League match against Stirling Albion at Forthbank has now been rescheduled for Tuesday 26 January 1999 at 7:30 PM. This is due to Stirling Albions postponed Scottish Cup tie.

Updated 07:01:99

The game originally planned for this weekend in the League versus Stirling Albion and then rearranged for the 13th has now been rescheduled for the 20th January at Forthbank Stadium. This is because the Scottish Cup replay that Stirling are involved in has been rearranged for the 11th January.

Updated 03:01:99

In this evenings draw for the third round of the Scottish Cup, made at Ibrox following the 2-2 draw in the Old firm match, Queens were drawn to play Clydebank at Boghead, that is if we are successful in overcoming Ross County on Saturday in the re-arranged fixture, originally programmed for Saturday past, but postponed due to the pitch at Palmerston being waterlogged. Unfortunately it was a wasted journey for the men from Dingwall, who had travelled down on New Years Day. They will have to make a similar five hundred mile round trip this coming weekend, lets hope that the game can be played.
