Hullo,
anyone from Barlanark in the 60's remember playing fitba in the street?
i used to spend days on end kicking a ba aboot in Pendeen Road, very occasionally stopping because a car came along. Played wi Jamie Moreland, Rab Docherty, Joe O'Hara, Pat Brannan, Billy Ashford amongst others. Anyone know of these guys? The only downside was the ba used to go over the fence and down to the railway. Other guys i kicked about with were Joe and Jim Latham, Rab and Brian McLeod, Tam Dougan but there were loads of us, all from Pendeen Road.
would love to hear from anyone who remebers any of us.

Andy, I knew the McCabes, there was a sister May who became a Nurse, then Arthur and I think there were twin boys.

I heard a few years ago that Arthur had died.

I lived in 4 Kentallen Road right from it was first built.
I was in Secondary School and had to travel into Town, but my younger sisters went to St. Paul's Primary and the youngest moved to St. Judes Primary when it was first built.
We also went to St. Paul's Chapel on Sunday until St. Jude's Chapel was built.

Andy I did not know your sister as before moving to Barlanark I lived in the Cowcaddens and never heard of Charlotte Streeter until we moved house.
I alway seemed to be the odd one out when travelling to school as I had to go right into Buchanan Street Bus Station.

I remember the time the kids stole rhubarb out the fields of St. Johns Home. Rhubarb pies were being baked all over Hallhill Road and Kentallen Road and the other roads in between. laugh.gif

I'm looking for a guy called John Devlin who lived in Barlanark in the 70's with his family (parents.) We used to work together at James Young Engineering Ltd in Bartholomew St. Glasgow around 1978/9 I'm guessing that he would be in his mid-fifties now & was an avid Celtic fan. I was a 17 year old apprentice & lived in Paisley. I left the area to relocate to Aberdeen around Xmas 1979. He 'treated' me to a night out in the El Paso pub before I left. He doesnt owe me money or anything biggrin.gif....I'm just curious to see how the last 30 odd years have panned out for him! Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Stewart.

they stayed next close to me his sister sadie on facebok
