1979 BHS Teachers v Pupils


1979 BHS Players v Teachers wm

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.

Ian Armstrong I’ve just read there were no ugly incidents…🤣🤣🤣…grudges settled on both sides…it was a great laugh, but some of the tackles would get you suspended in today’s football never mind sent off. I was one of the guilty parties. 😔

Ian Armstrong There was a school reunion around 2000, which was a great laugh….wish there could be another one. It was so nice catching up with old friends and teachers.
