McCalliog, Jim Jim you are my cousin. I was staying with your mum, my aunt Mary in Twickenham. I am the same age as your sister Ann. Your brother stayed with us in Dagenham, Essex. Pauline

McCalliog, Jim I remember when your family lived on Caledonian Road and you all moved out when you signed for Chelsea under Tommy Docherty. You were older than me but your sister Maureen/Margaret? was my age. Also remember Danny and Fred. I lived on Thistle Street, a couple of closes up from The Blarney Stone pub (commonly known as Seiles'.) Our back closes were only a few yards apart. I went to St Francis Primary and Holyrood Secondary before moving out to Househillwood then onto Scunthorpe. Didn't realise you were at Lincoln.

McCalliog, Jim I played against Jim at Nether Pollock football parks in glasgow in 1962. He played for Glasgow intermediate schools, and I played for Glasgow Catholic Schools. That day he played a longside a school mate of mine at St.Mungos, TonyGreen who in my humble opinion, was one of the best football players ever to come out of Scotland, all the top teams scouts were their that day. Hate to say they beat us 4-0.
