Dreghorn

Dreghorn Juniors

Recommended Posts

I am researching this former club's history.

If anyone has any connections with the club or can remember its playing days could they please post here.

I do of course know about the Scottish historical archive.

Any pics would be most welcome.

Dreghorn were still going until about 1968...when the leagues were re-arranged I think they then decided to play in the amateur set up.

Absolutely no connection (as a club) with either Irvine Meadow or Irvine Victoria.

 

ETA...the amateur club formed at the time might not have been directly connected to the junior club.

I think there might already have been an existing amateur club in Dreghorn.

Whether they amalgamated or whether they became a different amateur club I don't know...

Dreghorn did not fold they simply resigned from the juniors and joined the Ayrshire amateur leagues in 1970 continuing to play at the same ground. They are the last club to leave Ayrshire juniors , the last club to fold was Ardeer Recreation the previous season.

I can upload a picture of the riccarton bluebell team from the early 60s. I only have factual information on one player who was the gk Samuel Maloy he rejected moves to spurs and celtic as he earned more from his day job. The picture is circa 1960s and will upload it the mora if it is any use to yourself.

My dad and uncle - Hugh and Bobby McGhee- played for Dreghorn juniors. My dad recently passed away and I'd be interested in finding out anything you have about Dreghorn from their time
