Daniel Anderson Was probably a Mckenna. Was a couple of them when I went when I was a wean
Stephen McCallum Looks like a young Steve Lawson in the middle sat on the bike holding the golden winged helmet
Steven Radcliffe Steve lawson on the bike
Alan Dorricott One of them would’ve been Colin Caffery. Think it might be No8 or No4. Met him on a job when I was an apprentice. He was a sparky
Kenny Paterson Alison Paterson u and dad could name most of these? A think the guy at the back with the tash is Keith boxall.
Gary Moore Back Row..Keith Wright, Martin McKinna, Alan Mason, Kym Mauger, Geoff Powell, Kenny McKinna, Des Wilson, Dave Cassells…Front row…Colin Caffrey, Harry Maclean, Dave Thomson, Rob Carter, Jacko Irving…Super Steve Lawson on the bike holding the Silver Helmet which he successfully defended throughout the season (1982)
Matthew McGuigan Brilliant memories! My son Chris and me went every week while it was in Blantyre.
Ian Stalker Steve Lawson number 1 went every week home and away
Fiona Dunlop Colin Caffrey is no.4. I gave him a birthday cake one year as he was friends with my dad who was the starting marshal at the time in paisley.

  1. The above page flashed up when I was searching for something else. Brings back memories of good, great, bad, sad, and hilariously funny times. A time full of characters. Made me smile.
