The original warm-down maybe Derek? Don't know if I would have the nerve to give a national winner a toss though :o

yes the old osman blood marriens delbar and some barker git stuff :emoticon-0167-beer: :emoticon-0167-beer: there would have been a good bit of jock reid and ogilvie birds added to the mix .

James would go to lockerbie at 3am in the morning and throw the birds up on a roof in the dark , they would lift at first day light , he was a hard trainer and at abington and beatock regular , but the real hard work was tosses from .
















OBAN :emoticon-0137-clapping: :emoticon-0137-clapping:

his brother john was always at the birds , james was the trainer and front man john was more quiet and most didint even know him .
When John gave up and stopped taking part the results went doon hill .
