The Glynwed Social Club and 56th Club darts teams of 1974

The nephew of a darts player from a local team featured in a recent Falkirk Herald called in when he recognised his uncle.

We printed the picture in our October 9 edition. Phil McIlroy from Hallglen – who is in the picture – named all but two men from the Glynwed Social Club and 56th Club’s darts team, which featured in the Interclub magazine in 1974.

Now John McMahon from Bonnybridge has named one of the two missing players - his uncle John Mackie, who lived in Woodburn Road, Falkirk, at the time, standing second from right.

The line-up is (l-r): Unknown, Jackie Mathieson, Patrick McIlroy, Jack Moran (face hidden), Jerry Spinks, Ian Marshall, Phil McIlroy, Jack White, Jimmy Mackie, Peter Marshall, Ian Dewar, Harry Reid, John Mackie and Benny Moran.

Only one name still eludes us. If you know the man pictured on the left please let us know on (01324) 690249.
