Jack’s the lad for me
I can’t believe the turnaround in fortunes for St Mirren.
If someone told me last season that we’d be top of the league now I would genuinely have laughed in their face, because the only thing I could see was a bleak future in the League 1, not a rise to the top of the Championship.
I’m not going to get too carried away, because it’s so early in the season, but it’s just nice to be able to look forward to the weekend with the hope of more goals and points on the board rather than the dread of another defeat.
Well done Jack Ross and his team for the work they are doing, and long may it continue.

I noticed your article regarding the accidental breakage of the horse shoe at Maxwellton Cross.
I regularly turn pupils taking driving lessons right there, warning them jokingly that if they run over it with their wheels, they’ll get bad luck.
So one day I was out at the same turn with a 30 odd year-old guy from Canada, David Gordon, who could actually drive, but needed a British license for his job as a truck driver.
So we were waiting to turn right into Foxbar, and I joked again about the witches and the horseshoe.
Then he turned and grinned, almost maniacally, and said: “Agnes Naismith? She’s my great, great, great great, great grandmother. “My dad says it’s my claim to fame.” My jaw hit the floor. I don’t remember how many greats he used, or if he hit the horseshoe, because I almost fell off my seat, and just couldn’t believe the coincidence.
He passed first time and married my brother’s girlfriend’s daughter – they now have two daughters and stay in Livingston.
