Here’s a great photo from July 1979. Blantyre High Teachers take on pupils at a much anticipated football game!
The man with the unenviable task of keeping order was referee and Assistant Head Guidance Teacher, Mr. Norman Emslie. Despite the aggressive pose of Chemistry teacher Alan Berry and the menacing boot from a pupil, there were no ‘ugly incidents’.
With laughter all the way, the match was actually quite equal, resulting in a 0-0 draw. There was no shortage of support from onlookers as the crowd raised £70 for Save the Children.
