Re: The Scottish Premiership

Great win for the Gers @ parkhead the other day. Going to be close in the run in , but Steven Gerrard has got this team going in the right places & fingers crossed, title 55 will be delivered. In dreamland - Rangers have a great chance this year to win the SPL ynwa https://media.giphy.com/media/xT3...

Very Sad News

Morag, in California, USA, has passed away.

Her younger sister, and my sister, are best friends, which is where the information came from.

RIP Morag.

Re: Hayocks Primary sports results, undated

Knowing a good few of the pupils in P7, and their ages, I’d say the year would most likely be 1969.

Re: Campbells, Ardrossan

I think I might have nailed this. After much online searching I ended up in the British Newspaper Archive. I found not only that the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald archive is referencing the Castlehill Vaults as far back as the late 1800's, and indeed carrying adverts for the pub, but the publicati...

Re: Cafe in New St Stevenston 1960s/1970s

Wonder if that was the same Ferguson family who had the Ailsa tearooms near the Ardeer Hall. That was Bobby Ferguson's family. Bobby was goalkeeper for Kilmarnock, West ham and Scotland and was from Ardrossan, but I believe his mum was from Stevenston - Bobby Ferguson is in Adelaide now. Yes, it wa...

Re: Intimations 4 January 2017

Condolences to the McMail family on my old schoolmate, Satch's death. The family have now lost Satch, his wife and his brother Dan since November. Thoughts and prayers are with them at this sad time. JD. Also their youngest sister Helen, back in May. Step sister to be accurate. The three youngest i...

In other words, the future Sinclair Street would be directly behind the house in...

Re: looking for long lost friends

I can't help with the Chekkers question, but the post made me think of a talented guitarist and singer I knew very well, who would've played the same venues as you around the same time, but with another band. He was Jimmy Gallagher, who played with The Red Robins. Jimmy was married to my cousin, Mar...
