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.
