Blantyre Swimming Club


In 1986, Blantyre Swimming Club held their first Gala. The Blantyre Sports Centre, only open for 4 years at the time provided the prize, which is shown here. The Blantyre Sports Centre accolade passed from winner to winner.  The Blantyre Sports Centre Shield for the outstanding performance of that day went to Angela McKay.

In this picture, Blantyre boys and girls were pictured by the Hamilton Advertiser. Gillian Boyle is pictured and I know some of the others, but will leave it to you to comment.
