The Gretna FC administrator declared the 40 remaining staff at the club redundant on 19 May 2008 (see previously Nos 772, 781). The curtain was not quite closed for the club, however, as a possible white knight, Glasgow businessman Paul Davis, emerged, albeit holding talks with the Scottish Football League about whether the side would be allowed to continue in the First Division of the league, to which it had been duly relegated at season’s end a few days before. The team’s Scottish Premier League swansong was a 1-0 victory over another troubled side, Hearts, on 13 May, some sort of revenge for defeat by the men in maroon after a penalty shootout in the 2006 Scottish Cup Final.
