About a month ago we posted a colour postcard of the Scotland team that beat England 2-0 in 1962 which was given away free with the Daily Record to commemorate our first win over England at Hampden in 25 years. Hamish Husband and Alan Nelson our admin man had both concurred the photo had taken place at Cathkin Park, then home of Third Lanark and a stone’s throw from Hampden (it would have to be a World Record stone’s throw but a stone’s throw all the way). However, it turns out they were wrong as Hamish might have found out if he looked in his brother’s Scottish Football Book No 8 from 1962 as the same photo is in a piece called Training Time for Scotland and it’s all about Scotland training at St. Mirren’s Love Street ground.
The player photo is of Billy McNeill doing a leap of some sort and the other one is the team photo which one assumes was taken the day before the game.
