‘1971 – What A Sensation’ takes you back 50 years to Scottish football’s JFK moment. To the greatest shock in the history of the Scottish game. To the day when Partick Thistle beat Celtic in the League Cup Final and stunned the world. Somehow, a Partick Thistle team made up of young guns, old hands and part-timers had swept aside Jock Stein’s mighty Celtic 4-1. Fifty years on it remains Scottish football’s greatest shock, our game’s JFK moment. This is the story of that momentous day told by the players who were there, the fans who couldn’t believe their eyes, and members of the media who were left open-mouthed in disbelief. It is a story which wonderfully encapsulates the true spirit of sport – that on any given day, no matter the odds, David CAN humble Goliath. After a throw-away comment from a friend reminded him of the historic significance of 2021 to his beloved club, Lorne set out to tell the definitive story of the greatest day in his club’s history.
