It truly was. Beautifully balanced. Did you ever watch a better non-Rangers Scottish side than that?

Smith already had league medals at Hibs and Hearts but less well known Wishart also had one 1955 at Aberdeen.

I can't see Smith's record being beaten as you say a treat to watch eleven fine footballers playing the game the way it should be played

Eric Liddell 

Thanks. Should have known that. Confused by the bend. Must have been 220 yards.


Another Liddell. Billy of Liverpool longtime Scotland outside left.

Another racer, Dr Roger Bannister. I remember hearing on BBC the live commentary on his sub-4 minute mile. The race took place in May 1954 at Oxford in the late afternoon. Bannister worked in the morning at St Mary’s Hospital Paddington as usual then took the train from London to Oxford. A sort of upper class Alf Tupper.
