Used to go to the Reserves and Youth games back in the early to mid 80s and thinking back to those times just how good some of the youngsters were coming through. Started off with Charlie Nic and Danny Crainie. Went to see Celtic v Kokkola and Roy Aitken was 16 yrs of age playing. There was also Derek Whyte, Stuart Balmer, Davie Elliot (best player I've seen at that level) , Lex Baillie, Stevie Kean (Blackburn manager) , Sandy Fraser and Dougie McGuire, Dugald McCarrison and stopped going when Gerry Britton was coming through. The guys were terrific but how many actually made it? Unlike now when Academy Players such as Gump, Calmac, KT, MJ. Coming through are the likes of Ewan Henderson, Karamoko and a host of others like Scott Robertson and Kerr McInroy. Clearly a lot of things are right behind the scenes and youngsters being played. The futures bright, the future's GREEN AND WHITE.

{Ed007's Note - JP McBride should have went to the top of the game but he was led astray by dark forces in Fairhill...

Agree0 Disagree0

What actually happened to JP ED? Went to the same school as me, was a couple of years above me but remember him coming through and he was a talent! Last I heard he got done for drugs. shame to see talent like that go to waste!

{Ed007's Note - You went to Holy Cross, Danny? Me too mate and I'm good friends with all the branches of McBrides lol JP just couldn't commit to the life of being a pro when he was a kid.}

Yeah, I see what you mean Ed. Wasn't aware of that.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

That's the same story with far to many from Scotland. Boy fae where I grew up few years older than me had world at his feet. Broke into the clyde first team at 16 but just couldn't be a pro. Last time I seen him play my old man was nutmegging him at five a sides.
Seems it was same story with my old man as well. Scouts fae all over watching him. he's 63 and can hardly move because his hip and still head and shoulders above all us.

Aye ED I went to holy cross, a stayed in uddingston when I was younger! My neice and nephew still go to the new holy cross. i was in the same year as Stephen Simmons and kevin Mcbride. shame about JP, boy had talent! Unfortunately it’s Quite a commmon story for a lot of these young lads!

{Ed007's Note - Uddingston eh... *cough* snob *cough 😉 I know Kevin, you must know Robert McBride and Kenny Law as well then?}

I'd rather live in Uddie than Stonehouse. But then again I hear Port Glasgow's worse than Stonehouse. The windae cleaner uses a sander not far from me.

{Ed007's Note - I remember at a works night out back in the day and 2 welders arguing - and nearly fighting - because apparently Stonehouse is a stauncher Protestant stronghold than Larkhall because Stonehouse doesn't have a Chapel in it - loonballs!! And then there's Lesmahagow, The 'Gow!}

I used to stay in Burnbank. had the persons start their marches outside my house with the Gazebo fully erect two doors away from me like a community day. Still stood like the proud mulatto I am with my green and white stripes to get the parade off to a good start. all this and I am agnostic. :)

Just so happened when a walk was in its prime near our street someone had his window opened playing you'll never walk alone with his bagpipes. Never laffed as much in my life.
