Green, Tony My Father Jimmy Buntain signed Tony for Kirkintilloch Rob Roy. When I was a very young boy I had my photograph taken with Tony at Adamslie Park Kirkintilloch. Sadly the club are homeless as they sold the ground to a housing developer and are now playing at Cumbernauld United’s ground. The council have built a new football ground but they have not decided who will be playing there. I still have the photograph and fond memories of Tony playing for Rob Roy. I also went to see him play for Newcastle when I was visiting my Uncle in Gosforth.

Green, Tony The best inside forward (old school) I ever seen at Newcastle. They can keep Eastman (Turncoat). But Tony was great, fast and direct. A great shame he had to leave when he did.

Green, Tony I grew up with Tony in Garthamlock and was very fortunate to have him as a club mate school chum and friend. As can clearly be evidenced in reading these texts, Tony was an exceptionally gifted footballer. And, as equally made clear herein, a gentle considerate and modest human being. We both went to St. Mungo’s Academy and sat together at the same old double wooden desk. I trust he remembers the wonderful array of eccentric teachers we had: ‘Uncle Windbag;’ ‘Percy Fletcher’ Mr Topping; ‘The Bean’ and the PT teacher Mr McGregor who played right back for Clyde? Both Tony’s brothers, namely, John and Thomas were good players, the latter, John who was the older and like tony, not the tallest was a remarkably good goalkeeper. Whereas Thomas, who was similarly built was nonetheless a hard and skilful full back in perhaps what can be described today as in the Kieren Tierney mould. Incidentally oldest brother, John as well as playing in goal would it seemed also always be our team manager and coach. Halcyon days in deed old friend. Fondest regards and I sincerely hope we can hook up before too long, your old boyhood pal, Don Paton.
