Ten years to the day since St Mirren left their Love Street home for a brand new purpose-built stadium half a mile away on Greenhill Road, we look back at some of the most memorable moments enjoyed at St Mirren Park.

First game at the new ground watched by a record number of supporters

While a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock might not have been the most thrilling way for Gus MacPherson's side to begin life at their new home, it was still a momentous occasion nonetheless.

A  young Jack Ross lead out the Saints in front of a packed stadium which included Scotland's then First Minister Alex Salmond.

Killie looked to ruin the party atmosphere in the first-half after Kevin Kyle nodded them ahead but a late Dennis Wyness strike salvaged a point with Buddies' first goal at the new ground.

So while the Saints couldn't quite manage a historic victory, they did start life on Greenhill Road with a hard-fought point - the same outcome when they waved goodbye to Love Street three weeks earlier after a 0-0 draw with Motherwell.

From the first match and first goal at the new stadium to the first trophy presentation

Fast forward nine years to April 2018. Captain Jack is the manager and, after taking charge of a Saints team on the brink of relegation to League One before a miraculous mid-season turnaround in 2016, he lead his side to Championship glory in some style.

St Mirren had actually secured the title the previous week with a goalless draw at home to Livingston, but lifting the Championship trophy was made all the sweeter as it came after a 2-1 Renfrewshire derby win over Greenock Morton.

Danny Mullen opened the scoring early on before Lewis Morgan, making his final appearance for St Mirren at the Paisley 2021 stadium, sent the 6422 fans into full party mode with a dream strike with 20 minutes on the clock as the club went on to lift their first piece of silverware in six years and subsequently return to the Premiership.

THAT Adam Hammill goal

St Mirren Park, Greenhill Road, Paisley 2021 stadium, Simple Digital Arena... whatever you call it - the stadium seen some its fair share of cracking goals.

However, in those 10 years ,no goal has as technically sublime, or more timely, than Adam Hammil's wonder strike against Hearts back in November earlier this season.

With Kearney yet to record a win since taking over from Alan Stubbs in September, up stepped Hammill who spotted Jambos keeper Zdeněk Zlamal out of position before unleashing a thunderous half-volley from all of 35-yards that sailed over the Hearts keeper's head to open the scoring and send Saints on their way to a vital three points. 

Nights to remember against the Old Firm

Sitting second bottom of the league table and just three days after losing an agonising Co-operative Insurance Cup final to nine-man Rangers at Hampden in 2010, Gus MacPherson's side would have been forgiven for looking at Celtic's visit to St Mirren Park on March 24, 2010, as somewhat of an inconvenience. 

But, in an astonishing night in Paisley, doubles from midfielders Andy Dorman and Steven Thomson stunned the Hoops and saw Tony Mowbray's side booed off the park by the travelling fans.

The match, which proved to be then Celtic manager Mowbray's final game in charge, was St Mirren's first league win over Celtic since 1989 and ended with Saints fans chanting 'we want five' as the final whistle blew.

With Danny Lennon at the helm the following season, Christmas came early for St Mirren as they completed an Old Firm double at Greenhill Road after seeing off Ally McCoist's Rangers on Christmas Eve.

Lee Wallace had the Ibrox side ahead but a terrific Aaron Moy strike followed by a Paul McGowan effort handed Buddies the 2-1 win.

Record wins and the Great Escape

There have been some big scorelines over the years at Greenhill Road. Two of the biggest, however, came within weeks of each other back in April 2017 at the culmination of what became known as the Great Escape.

Sitting adrift at the bottom of the Championship table four points behind Ayr, Jack Ross' side lined up knowing a win would haul them to just a point behind the Honest Men in 11th - with a game in hand.

What followed was a demolition as the Buddies kick-started their battle to beat the drop in some style.

A first-half onslaught began after just five minutes when Stevie Mallan volleyed in the opener, then delivered for Gary McKenzie.

Stephen McGinn added the third before Kyle Magennis and Lewis Morgan scored either side of half-time to make it 5-0.

Paul Cairney and Farid El Alagui grabbed consolations for Ayr but Cammy Smith completed the rout to record St Mirren's biggest win at their new home.

Back at the Paisley 2021 stadium just three weeks later, St Mirren were once again welcoming another relegation rival, this time in the shape of Raith Rovers.

Another bottom of the table clash and another huge step towards Championship survival for the Saints as an incredible Mallan double, efforts from Rory Loy and Lewis Morgan and an own goal all without reply moved St Mirren two points off the danger zone with an emphatic 5-0 win.

From the highs of the Championship title coming to Paisley and the Old Firm victories, St Mirren's decade at Greenhill Road has been a memorable one.
