Notes - Ultra rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Bowman for Alex MacDonald's testimonial match against Rangers played at Tynecastle in Edinburgh on 15th of May 1984. Hearts player/manager Alex MacDonald was honoured with a testimonial against his old side rangers and the two sides turned up in style to celebrate MacDonald's achievements. The VIP of the match was undoubtedly former Liverpool and Newcastle striker Kevin Keegan with some 18,000 fans flocking to Tynecastle to watch an historic tribute to the Hearts gaffer. MacDonald, was a lively contributor to the match in his name not holding back in his tackles as Hearts played football with flare. A thrilling game ended 3-2 in favour of Rangers the side MacDonald had made well over 300 appearances for during his time at Ibrox. Bowman played the full match alongside the man he had shared his entire Hearts career with in a touching tribute to MacDonald. Bowman himself had made over 100 appearances in his 4 years at the Jam Tarts between 1980-84 before crossing the border to join English side Coventry City. The 6 time Scottish international enjoyed spells with Dundee United and Raith Rovers later on in his career and spent a short spell with Hong Kong based side Orient & Yee Hope before returning to Scotland and finishing his career with Forfar Athletic in 2002.
