Steven Leslie Remembers

Steven Leslie remembers

Following that big night against Rangers Queens are now looking forward to another battle against Hearts.

There have been many epic matches, over the years and just recently we fought out a goal-less draw in a pre-season friendly match at Palmerston.

One former player who enjoyed those encounters more than most was Steven Leslie, now a well-known publican in the town.

Recalls Steven, "Yes, I remember one particular game against Hearts in round two of the League Cup in 1999.

"I think the crowd was in the region of four and a half thousand and I netted the opener in the first half.

But the `Jam Tarts` grabbed three goals in the second period and won comfortable in the end".

The Queens line up that night was: Hillcoat, Lilley, Kerr, Rowe, Aitken, Cleeland, Harvey, Leslie, Adams, Mallan and Caldwell".
