Wish I wasn’t too old for it to be acceptable to fight rival schoolchildren at lunchtime anymore. Some laugh.

Ah slightly older than me. I was first year of Kirkton high and second year of baldragon.

The fighting between the Rocky and Kirkton was quite entertaining back then

It was more between Kirkton & Lawside when I was there, which left me in a strange position, being from St Marys and having loads of mates at Lawside :lol:

Yeh I'm up in St.Marys now but a lot of my mates went to forfar ( lived out in Bridgefoot before that ).
Don't think we had anyone else who has came through the school when I was there.
A Scott Johnston played for montrose I think it was. Not sure where he is now , last is heard he moved down to London

I played in the same school team as Barry Donachy who was captain of Utd’s youth team before moving to Montrose. Crackin’ team we had, won the league and cup double, winning the cup final at Dens.

I was at menzieshill high. Can only think of mark fotheringham making it. Think Jamie winter went to meenie as well. Dab Scott Fraser was at menzieshill as well. According to some of the teachers he was a right wee fanny who loved himself. Anyone at school with anyone who went on to play professional football??

Wasn't at school with him but did know Maurice Ross very well. He went to Lawside and kicked about with the same pals as me in St Marys/Ardler.

I was in the year below kirky and there were a few good players in my year, the laddie that was probably best was just to wee to play pro. If ur fae Kirkton or went to baldragon about the same time you'll know who I'm on about

Yeah, Mo was top drawer. Hated playing against him for the school, good chance he'd tear you a new one haha. 

I remember he and Keith Gibson being at Rangers together as kids, they retained Mo but let Keith go. He went to Dundee, didn't make it to the first team but ended up carving a decent career for himself in the lower leagues with Peterhead, Forfar, Arbroath & Montrose.

I was at madras in St Andrews with Scott Gates who played for us when we were in the 1st/championship and came through the youth system. Was head and shoulders above everyone else at school, always thought he was destined for big things.

No travelling either to do it - they were the two schools they merged to make Baldragon.

Mind hearing stories about that, sounded mental. I was at Meenie so it was just the Harris daftys in Lochee Park/Balgay ;)

It was quite the first year we merged but eventually it zimmered down.
More so the girls were the worst with the big f**k off biker boots back then.

We don't have a back up left back do we ?


Don’t think so. I’m presuming Holt has said ‘I want to be a starter’.
