    1. Your correct les innes after he stopped playing become a scratch golfer at colville park and was the club champion nay times and competed in the scottish amataer championship. Willie powell never really played to his potential and as you say could have played at a higher level.

          1. Thanks for your help again on this one, there are 3 missing players names on photo 12.
            If you could give me them in the order they come I’ll update it, not really sure which ones to change or to what.

  1. LES INNES WAS A STRONG RUNNING MIDFIELDER WHO WAS A P.E. TEACHER AT LANARK GRAMMAR SCHOOL.
    WILLIE POWELL WAS FROM STONEHOUSE, A QUIET LAD AND AN EXCELLENT STRIKER WHO SHOULD HAVE HAD A SENIOR CAREER- WAS PALS WITH DAVID MCNIVEN WHO WENT ON TO PLAY FOR LEEDS UTD. STEWART MCCANDLESS WAS A LEFT-SIDED MIDFIELDER

      1. Ill get in touch with big Mo and get Marion to visit him, that will keep him going for another decade at least…
        His father ” beer barrell ” lived to a great age, although Willie was a sad loss.
        Always remember some players eyeing him up for a tap with his leather briefcase

      2. Are you talking about my grandfather’s brother by any chance? Midge cowan? My dad was Billy Cowan fae ashgill his dad was wullie cowan,would be good to hear more about ma auld papa lol.

        1. Hi evelyn the name Cowan is extremely well known as far as Larkhall Thistle is concerned. as far as Midge Cowan is concerned if it’s the same guy who in the thirty’s was on the committee and until he passed away very seldom missed a game. His son Andrew ” wee Nin” as he was know now 90 years old still on the go and like old Midge was heavily involved in the club for many years and still attends home games.Only Wullie Cowan I know was Andrew’s brother and was treasurer of club for many years. Usually go down to see Andrew at least once a week will clarify if I am on right lines re your old papa. If so I have many fond memories of Wullie. Will be back in touch.

  2. My grandfather front row far right of photograph 15, james (jimmy) mcanenay played as a right footer on left wing. If you have any of the other names can you let me know them so i can tell him, he is 85 years old now and can still tell u everything of those times

  3. Hi sean will be friend you on facebook and send you the guys names and details. Where does Jimmy stay now he was capped for scotland . I can remember watching him on the one wing and Jimmy Easton on other great days I am nearly 70 now but can remember those days . Great times

  4. Hugh Kerr he stays in Paisley, hes 85 now he remembers everyone of the people in the photo, yeh capped 3 times for scotland i have one of the caps and pictures of him playing against Ireland in 1956. I will see if i can get you photos on them, send me the details of the players and ill show him the mail. We are thinkin about coming to not next weeks but the next home game they are playing.

  5. I remember Andy Campbell in photo 14 who demolished Irvine Meadow single handed in the Scottish Cup in the mid sixties. His corner kicks were impossible to defend. He simple hit the ball as hard as he could.

    1. Hi Gordon your right about Andy for a right winger he was shall way say no ” slim jim ” but he was a skilful player and very difficult to put of the ball and had a fierce shot . Andy’ s shorts were made in Dak Simpsons because the ones supplied by kit makers did not fit him. Great memories Gordon.
