    Jocky Wilson has died at the age of 62.
    The title of Scotland's oldest man now passes to 54 year old Hamish Weir of Perth. * *


    If only Jocky had been on the pitch at Stamford Bridge yesterday
    He may have had a chance. * *

  4. Thought he might have made 180 but sadly not to be.
     
  5. Just goes to show that being a top sportsman doesn't mean a long life, all that training for nothing.

    A true athelete.

    Gave the youngsters something to look up to (or around).
     
  10. Will Malvinas return to Malvinas ?.
     
  11. IT was a moment to treasure. Jocky with his belly hanging over his belt, a burning fag in one hand, an overloaded ashtray on a nearby table bearing pints of lager with vodka chasers. Jocky hits 180 and the comnentator yells "What an athlete this man is!"
