Cathkin Park, Glasgow

Just returned from a short visit north of the border where among other things I took in Saturday's Scottish cup semi final - won by Hibs.

But having an hour or so to kill before the game I managed to track down Cathkin Park - home of the 3rd Lanarkshire Rifle Volunteers (or Third Lanark) FC from 1872 to 1967. It's an evocative reminder of what happens when unscrupulous football club owners overreach themselves. There's another football club on the south side of the Clyde that could well do to remember this...
