From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Pat McHat

Continuing the sporting theme, the Sentinel had a regular sports column in the 1990s, Pat McHat, who provided opinion, commentary and often a humorous take on what was happening in the world of sport.  Although the column does take in other sports, its main focus is football.  That’s maybe not the best of themes for Scottish fans this week but hopefully Pat’s comments may raise a smile or two! 

Here’s a selection of columns

December 1994: Raith win the Coca Cola Cup.  The page also features winners in the annual Club 85 sports championships. 

September 1997: Will Scotland qualify for the World Cup Finals in France? 

June 1998: The real battle in the World Cup, ITV versus BBC, with an assessment of the main contenders.

 July 2000: Controversially, Pat suggests the Scots fans lend England some support in Euro 2000.
