What a grand photo Phil!
The photo was taken on Hogmanay 2004 in the West End.
The inspiration for the photo came from a similar photo the Doonies had taken in the early 80’s after they had their first 12 in a row run.
We waited a while for this opportunity!
One correction to Phil’s text is it is Raymie Stanger between Gordon Mulraine and Bruce Moar.

Thanks for the correction on both counts,I didn't have the Boys' names in front of me at the time, hence the mistake!. Added by Phil Brough.
