In this new feature, I’m looking back on the information which appeared in newspapers when local footballers stepped up to the senior grade.
From August 1964 . . .
Harry Smith, Alyth United left-back, signed for East Fife in Dundee at the weekend.
Smith (26) has been an outstanding defender for Alyth for several seasons and has had several successful trials for Forfar Athletic and Brechin City.
Following a game at Brechin, Smith was offered terms this season, but East Fife were also after him and watched him play an outstanding game for the Angus Junior Select at Brechin on Friday night.
