DUNDEE ROCKETS - EARLY 80'S

Not a brilliant quality shot but it's the only picture I have of the Dundee Rockets from the period I went to see them play.
Ex Craigie High School pupil, Jim Pennycook, is 2nd from the right in the centre row.

  1. They were absolutely brilliant. Mike Mazur, a Canadian, and Jimmy Spence were the top scorers. My mum knitted me a Dundee Rockets scarf but with the wrong colours - green and orange. There were also some tense England v Scotland ice hockey games too.

  2. I remember them handing out free tickets to school kids, and I lost mine!

  3. They were a great team who had a great (art deco?) home, sadly now the site of a supermarket... I get jealous when I pass the Fife Flyers rink, it's still there in all its glory!

  4. The manager 'Tam/Tom Stewart' had big plans for the rockets...

  6. Was anybody at- or played in- the play offs held at Streatham in 1982?

    The Blackpool Seagulls (Rockets semi final opponents) have just reformed as a recreational team and we are looking for stories to go in the match programme.
