Gretna were a highly controversial team for their whole league existence dividing opinion between the romantic who love to see the "wee village team" going well and other fans who resented Gretna "buying" successive promotions. With that in mind it's worth remembering that while in the first division Gretna got to within a penalty shoot of winning the Scottish Cup. They ran away with the league for most of the season before struggling and eventually stumbled over the finish line. that's just crazy! Gretna isn't even a real place, it's a glorified service station and gift shop on the A74! (Cue the hate mail from Gretna residents - both of them) The village's heritage of performing weddings over the blacksmith's anvil is shown on the badge.
