1960s High Blantyre Football Team

Another great photo of High Blantyre School on Hunthill Road. I think perhaps from the early 1960s, this is the boys football team, coached by none other than Craig Brown, (later Scotland’s coach) sitting on the far right. Davie Crawford headmaster sits in the middle.

Do you know any of the boys? Perhaps one of them is you!?

*Update. From Gordon Cook….”the back line from left to right is Barry Ireland, me, Archie Bethel, John Moffat, Jim Thomson (I think), William Irvine, Billy Cather, and Ian Baird. The front row from left to right is Billy Wilson, William Chatham, Tom Daisley, Stewart Reid, Jim Swinburne, and Arthur McSkimming.”
