Heart of Midlothian Foresters

Football Club

Thank you to John Ballantyne, Boswall, Edinburgh, formerly Arthur Street, Edinburgh for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above.

John tells me that many of the players in the Heart of Midlothian Foresters FC came from the area around Arthur Street and used to frequent the Bowlers' Rest at the foot of Arthur's Street beside the bowling green.

Here is a photograph of the Heart of Midlothian Foresters Football Club Dinner,  taken in June 1962.

Recollections

Thank you to Thomas Harrison, Buckstone, Edinburgh, who wrote:

"What a great surprise to see the Foresters team that Johnny Ballantyne sent.  What a joy to remember those lads.  They were a great football team.

If you were a footballer at all, you would have fitted in, because the whole lot played up the Scotchie on a Sunday for hours.  I myself played  for  the Foresters and I will always feel great pride in being a Forester.

I just hope that all the lads are still with us are keeping great and enjoying retirement and the lads that have passed on, YOU ARE NEVER FORGOTTEN."

Thomas Harrison, Buckstone, Edinburgh:  September 5, 2007

Question

The Team

"Jimmy Broadbent (Jr), son of the Dumbiedykes street bookie, Jimmy Broadbent, had a friend that everyone knew as Bally, surname Ballantyne, who was killed in a road accident  in the Inch.

My wife wonders if the person back row last to the left is Bally.

She says he sure looks like Bally."

Answer

I sent this question to Joan, North of England, daughter or John Ballantyne who provided this photograph.  Joan replied:

"Yes, The person in the photograph is my Uncle Allan and he did die from a road accident.  This was back in 1970. (I think, I was only 4 and a half.)"
