Big turn out for "Glory in Gothenburg" talk by Richard Gordon at Nairn's Little Theatre - pictures

A fascinating evening's entertainment in the Little Theatre last night (Thursday) with author and broadcaster Richard Gordon. Richard brought the Aberdeen European Cup winners cup victory back to life as he described the background and the fixtures in the  lead up to the famous victory by the Dons in 1983. He went on to give a thorough account of the game and provided many interesting anecdotes which he had gleaned from interviews with the legends who played in that game. 
There was also a Q and A session that began with further reflections on those days but also  focused on contemporary affairs at Pittodrie and questions relating to the Scottish league in general and what impact reorganisation may have on the Highland League.
The event was organised by Donald Graham and raised £630 for the Wee County's Ground Improvement Fund.  Individual pictures here
