AS AN antidote to the dreich weather we have been experiencing over the last few weeks we extend thanks to Bruce Wyllie for this Maroons’ pre-season training picture from the summer of 1968.

Over 40 years ago, the majority of players in the Arbroath FC squad were local, from the Arbroath, Dundee, Carnoustie, Aberdeen area.

Pictured running around the Gayfield perimeter are, from left, front row - Jim Riddle, Tom Cargill and Peem Cant; second row - Ally Law, Eric Sellars and John Wilkie; third row - Allan Kennedy, Jimmy Jack and Sandy Finnie: fourth row - Tom Cargill, George Easton and Tommy Hughes; fifth row - Bruce Wyllie, George Ferguson and Andy Welsh; sixth row - Jim Williamson.
