On Dunfermline`s march to the quarter finals of the 1965-66 Inter-City Fairs Cup, the Pars met Spartak Brno in the third round. The first leg was played at East End Park on 26 January 1966 on a rain-soaked and stodgy pitch. The Czechs were said to have `a rugged defence`, and it took Dunfermline an hour to break down the resistance. It was Bert Paton who scored first, and this was followed by a penalty from Alex Ferguson. 

The return leg was played in Brno on 16 February 1966 amidst poor weather conditions. Not only that but the Manager, Willie Cunningham, was in hospital for an operation and the team was taken by the trainer, Andy Stevenson. Fine performances by Jim Thomson, Alex Smith and a young Eric Martin in goal ensured that Dunfermline left with a 0-0 draw. The Pars advanced to the next stage.
