From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Football For All

In November 1985, the Sentinel published a football special, asking if there were people in the area willing to form a Wester Hailes team.  They pointed out that this would be something for young people to do and that a team would be good for the area.  The Sentinel promised to back an initiative to get a team started but also pointed out that it would need support from the local community if it was going to be successful.  Read all about their plans by clicking here on Wanted: A Football Team.

The same edition also featured a lively interview with Wallace Mercer and a report on Stuart Gauld and the problems he faced during 1985.  And for those who are not football fans, there’s a story about the Dominoes League on the back page!
