Hamilton Accies, 1972.

Lawless is a fairly unusual name. Any relation to Steven ( who I believe is a Hamilton lad)?

Andy Lawless is the Accies player here, but I don't know of any connection to Steven. We could ask Michael Caine, who is seated at Andy's left in the picture.

Although this is a moving picture and Australian it’s about Scots and football in Australia. Includes a mention of Ayr United and words from Fergie, former Albion Rover Tom Sermanni, Lawrie McKinna ex Darvel and Killie.

Possibly Dens Park but I'm sure someone will work it out. On the right of the terrace Sunny Jim has escaped from the Vital Spark I notice.

It's not Dens, maybe Brockville.

The woman on the left is actually not from THe Chase and apparently used to go to all games home and away and used to stand in a similar location whatever ground she visited.

I have that book too, purchased in the 1980s before the new builds started polluting its pages... I think Archibald Leitch's gable end is mentioned on nearly every page. 

Yeah, great book that, I've got it too .... great for old codgers like me reminiscing....

^^^^^ Inglis certainly was impressed by Archibald Leitch's designs ....... not to be confused with the Archibald Leach lawyer played by John Cleese in A Fish Called Wanda ...... although I did wonder at the time....

Or the English actor who became Cary Grant.

The John Cleese character in a Fish called Wanda was named after Cary Grant's original name.

Cary Grant was born in Bristol.

Talking of names Alf Wight needed a pseudonym for his book of memories of his time as a Yorkshire vet due to Royal Vets Society rules and having seen a football match on telly involving Birmingham City pinched the name of their Scottish goalie- James Herriot.

Herriot the vet lived in Glasgow as a child and studied to be a vet there. Herriot the goalie played for Dunfermline, Hibs, St Mirren, Partick and Morton.
