End of an Era - Cambusnethan/Morningside club, Lanarkshire Federation - By Tom Corrie

End of an Era - Cambusnethan/Morningside club, Lanarkshire Federation

The club has closed its doors on its last season.

Cambusnethan and Morningside FC was Amalgamation in 1971 of two very old clubs and research shows it goes back to the late 1800s early 1900s dating it amongst the oldest clubs in the country and was one of the forerunners of the Lanarkshire Federation.

Year end 2022 we had over 20 lofts competing with a number of duplicating members 

Next season members will be racing with Newmains club..

A special mention has to go to my !Best pall ! John Lawrie having been Secretary since 1972, some 50 years and to Andy Frame treasurer which gave us the stability in its continuation up to this date and also to our !Politician! The Legend Geordie Kelly .

From myself current President Andy Eadie, John Lawrie, Andy Frame on behalf of the club members wish the remaining organisations best wishes on reaching the landmark ,and remain strong supporters and loyal members to Newmains Pigeon Club , Lanarkshire Federation and Scottish Homing Union

End of An Era

Yours in Sport

Andy Eadie ( Eadie & Kelly)
