Lanark Police Sports, 1960, Programme

The Lanarkshire Constabulary Sports was a very popular meeting and another which, like the Rangers Sports. was held at a football stadium – in this case Shawfield, the home of Clyde FC, which was also used by the greyhound racing fraternity.   The result was a track marked out on the grass of the football pitch surrounded by the dog track with its floodlights.   This programme from the 1960 sports was passed to us by Chris Holloway and apart from the races and competitors is a useful piece of social history – have a look at the adverts for a start!
