Bayview Stadium, Methil (East Fife FC)

Scotland, county: Fife

22 VII 2018 / East Fife FC - Forfar Athletic 1-1 - Forfar win penalty shoot-out (4-5) / League Cup, group stage - group B

Note 1: after moving away from their original Bayview Park, East Fife FC settled down at the Bayview Stadium (initially referred to as New Bayview) in the summer of 1998.

Note 2: for decades, the East Fife - Forfar Athletic encounter has had a magical ring to it, as football followers are always hoping for a scoreline of 5-4 or 4-5 (which last occurred in 1964). The match I visited at Bayview actually finished 1-1, but as Forfar won the ensuing penalty shoot-out 4-5, the result made headlines in the UK and beyond.

Note 3: below, a compilation of photos of two visits: pictures 1-10 = non-matchday visit, July 2017; pictures 11-31 = matchday visit, July 2018.
