In Topic: Celtic de Paris

06 May 2013 - 09:01 PM

I read this posting with interest as I saw them play several times.I was lucky enough to be based in Paris whilst doing my national service and although I was playing RU (no choice in those days) for the unit I was in, I also went to watch Celtic all stars and met the man who was the driving force behind the club . He was a leading french industrialist by the name of M.Maurice Tardy.

He also made contact with the american military locally with a view to enlisting a few american footballers and asked me to help with translations .

Puig Aubert did indeed play some games for them and I have a photo of him with some other french internationals who guested with the Celtic.

The year was 1958.
