1998/1999 - A Season of Two Halves
The first half of the season was an absolute disaster, with Queens slumping to 2nd bottom of the league, well adrift of the rest, until Rowan Alexander was given his much deserved jotters (he'd also taken us onto the front pages of the National press for all the wrong reasons) in mid January.
George Rowe and Ken Eadie took over as player managers, and in the 17 games they took charge of, would have won the league if it had started then, as Queens went on to finish 4th in the league once again.
For the first time I held a 'Player of The Year' vote, which was won by Derek Townsley, his final award for Queens as he left for Premier League Motherwell. Also heading to the SPL, with Aberdeen, were Jamie McAllister and Derek Lilley.
In those early days, the site was basically just one page with a report done on each game I was at. Click on the reports link below to read them.
For the first time, there was also a 'rumours' page, and having a quick read of it as I prepared this page, I have to say it was quite interesting!
