30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Ruther­glen po­lice­man who was on hol­i­day in Mex­ico for the World Cup found him­self hailed as a hero af­ter he helped two young­sters who were be­ing at­tacked in a riot.

Su­per­mar­ket staff who had raised £300 for the Sport Aid fun were vic­tims of an armed rob­bery.

Around a dozen an­gry pick­ets blocked the gates of Ruther­glen Cen­tre for the Unem­ployed to protests against the use of the fa­cil­i­ties by a women’s group, as they claimed this dis­crim­i­nated against men.

The go-ahead was given for a shop unit style mar­ket to be built be­hind the Macburger premises on Mill Street - de­spite an­gry op­po­si­tion from lo­cals.

Cam­bus­lang Rangers crashed out the Cup Win­ners Cup at the first hur­dle, af­ter a 2-1 loss to Shet­tle­ston.
