Argyll County Cup 1948 - details...

Postby Ship called Dignity » Tue Aug 16, 2005 12:15 am

My auld man gave me a bundle of photos and cuttings etc at the weekend and some of it is really really interesting.

My grandfather, Wattie Paterson, was secretary for the Campbeltown and District Junior Football Association and my Dad often commented on how he was great at documenting everything. Unfortunately after he passed away my Gran threw out most the stuff - unaware then of what great interest it would be.

Anyway, I have his book from 1947-48 and here is just one page from it (if anyone is interested!)

In hand writing....
