10 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Ruther­glen Glen­cairn were fac­ing the prospect of be­ing with­out a home park af­ter they left Southcroft, be­cause pleas to ground­share with neigh­bour­ing clubs were prov­ing fruit­less.

A Cam­bus­lang man was hailed as a hero by First Min­is­ter Jack Mc­Connell at an awards cer­e­mony, af­ter he was hon­oured for bravely chas­ing a man run­ning away from a bank with a hand­gun.

There were three new road projects pro­posed for Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang in the Lo­cal Trans­port Strat­egy, in­clud­ing the Cathkin Re­lief Road.

A Cam­bus­lang feared he would have take mat­ters into his own hands af­ter an­other of his prized pi­geons was shot.

The own­ers of the Cathkin land­fill site were fined £4000 for poor man­age­ment of the dump.
