The Glory Days of Gold supporter podcast, in conjunction with the club and EFTV, had managed to attract Archibald back to Methil for a special event which would have seen him discuss his time at Bayview, along with broadcaster David Tanner, on Thursday.

However, recent changes in guidance relating to the Covid-19 pandemic forced a quick re-think with it confirmed over the weekend that a decision had been taken to cancel the event, which sold out in a matter of days.

It is hoped, though, that it can be rescheduled.

A message posted on the Glory Days of Gold Twitter account stated: “Due to the current covid climate and following government guidance to defer gatherings, Steve and his team have asked that we postpone our event, which we think is sensible.”

A further message was posted by the group on Sunday saying that those who had bought tickets would be contacted at the start of the week regarding a rearranged date for the event.

Before arriving at Bayview, Archibald enjoyed a celebrated career which saw him play for Tottenham Hotspur, Hibs and Barcelona as well as the Scottish national team.
