1976 Blantyre & Whitehill Accies

Recognise anybody in this Blantyre football team? The year is 1976 and the team is Blantyre and Whitehill Accies. I’m assured it was taken near the bottom of John Street at the playing pitches.

Almost all of the names are known. Top Left: Peter Smith – Coach, Mark Smith, Keith MacLean, Alastair Ally Maxwell, Bobby Sinclair, Duncan Mclure, Davie Syme, Stevie Scott, Pat McClusky’coach. Front Row: Chris Cummings, Alan Dollard, Stevie Marshall,?, Neil Ballnivess, Billy McConell, John Barr and James McConnell.
