I used to be able to reach out and touch the players as the left the pitch up the spion kop end of Windsor Park, so I cud. I was only wee. Loads of them gave me their autographs, so they did. God love them. Aye. Thon Bobby Charlton was a bit miserable, but the friendliest of the lot was Pat Jennings, our wee goalie. Aye. I used to give my wee autograph book to someone outside the coach and wait excitedly to see who signed it. It was always only Pat Jennings, five times. I'm thinking of selling my wee autograph book as the one with the most signings by one player.

I was sorting out stuff the other day and came upon an old N.Ireland V Yugoslavia programme from 1975.I was 12 and went alone. I vaguely remember we won 1-0 and no way was I going to chuck that little piece of memorabilia out, but even better I noticed it was autographed. You guessed it. I wonder how much that is worth now. Not as much as it means to me, I suppose. Then again, everything has it's price, so they say.

I enjoyed reading that wee story, made myself a wee pot of tea with a wee scone with wee drop of strawberry jam. Drank that many wee cups of tea I had to go to the loo for a wee slash.
P.S. When I was a wee schoolboy I once scored a wee penalty goal past big Pat.😄

I recall a wee Scottish football coach visited our wee school once. He seemed to get a bit overexcited about anyone who could dribble. His name was Gibby MacKenzie and it turned out he managed the mighty Portadown. He sat there for what is now known as a Q & A, after our pointless football session, and all the kids started asking him questions about who was the best player and who would win the world cup etc.  What part of Scotland are you from? I said. Suddenly, wee Gibby in his red tracksuit seemed a bit thrown, outside his comfort zone. He looked at me twice. ' Ach, a wee place you've niver heard af san' he said.

Which town? I said.

The legendary Gibby, as the PE Master had it, looked a bit perturbed.

'A wee town called Saltcoats', he said.

For some reason, Gibby decided that was enough questioning for one day and we all got up and returned to class.

My primary school footballing claim to fame was John Platt who played for Cliftonville was one of the teachers and his brother Jim was the keeper for Middlesborough at that time and he came along one day to “coach” the youngsters . It didn’t make that much of an impact on me to be honest because I was useless at football, couldn’t have hit a barn dure at five yards with a ball and had no interest in it , still , it was an afternoon out of the classroom and that’s all that mattered . I do remember that Jim Platt had a bit of an impact with a couple of the younger female teachers though and in those days before I had ever heard of a hormone or knew what they were I wondered what this strange attraction the boul Jim seemed to exert over these young ladies and wondered how one went about acquiring this attraction !
