Might want to give this a watch fellow bears
sitting with stream of tears in my eyes

We are the greatest club in the world
And these bears that died will always live on within Ibrox

In 2005 my eldest stepdaughter lost her fight with cancer at the age of 34. She was cremated and her ashes interred in a small plot in Markinch cemetary..........she was a true bearette. A year later her broken hearted Dad gave up the will to live and joined her there in that wee square on the wind-swept hill...........he was a true bear.

On quiet days I visit them and pass on our news, good or bad, they deserve to know.
Then I walk down towards the gate where the graves of those wee boys from this village are sited. The ones who went to the match and returned in coffins after our worst moment.

I can't talk to them for sobbing to myself. One day though they'll get to know about everyone and everything they've missed. I'll see to it, one day.

Aye Steve, 40 years on then, and still fresh in the minds of some of us, and in 2021 they'll show it again as a reminder. That'll be the 50th year.
Whenever and wherever we are called upon to play on that day ( 2nd January ) they will be remembered with the love and reverence owed to them by those of us who escaped their fate.

I come from Glenrothes but spent a good few years living in Markinch as a Primary School kid. I never knew about the history of this, as my Grandad always tried to keep me out of the full on Rangers history, so he could leave my club decision to myself.

I first seen the Markinch remembrance after the charity appeal and searching for it during the Markinch Highland Games - it looks good.

Remembrance is for all Bears who lost their life on the day.

Is Mrs Easton still in Markinch?  Listening to her talk of that day is absolutely gut-wrenching.  I saw her at the 40th anniversary remembrance service when Rev Stuart MacQuarrie conducted the service.  Stuart was on the same bus as myself that awful day.

put's into perspective where football on the park really should stay.  Watching that woman tell her story was upsetting.

I'm from markinch. Very sad times indeed. The memorial is at the end of my street and every new year there is always people coming and going to visit the memorial. No one really talks about it much here.
