Another week means another trip down memory lane as we look back on what your favourite local newspaper was reporting 15 years ago.

Can you believe, 2008 was the year the town's Mikey was in Big Brother? 

How time flies.

So, sit back and have a look as you sip your coffee and see what we found in the Clydebank Post’s from a decade and a half ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition, published this week in August 2008.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

1. OAP was £9,000 richer

A pensioner was in shock after winning a cracking cash prize.

Retired William Purdie won the Sons Lotto, picking up a whopping £9,000 after entering the competition.

William told the Post at the time: “I’m absolutely gobsmacked.

“I’ve been playing the lotto since it started but have only won something like £40 before.

“I don’t really know what I’ll spend the money on — maybe clear up a few bills, treat the grandkids — but I’ll definitely find out how to spend it.”

Wonder if there is any of it left?

2. Yoker wears pink before beating Bankies

Sporting winners warmed up for a glory weekend by donning pink T-shirts for charity.

The players of Yoker Athletic wore the t-shirts before their 2-0 defeat of Clydebank in the derby match.

They pulled the jerseys on to promote the launch of the ‘It’s a Girl Thing’, a campaign raising awareness of breast cancer.

The Cancer Research UK initiative aimed to raise funds to tackle the disease.

John Brogan, Yoker Athletic manager at the time said: “It was fantastic fun and raised money for Cancer Research UK’s research into breast cancer.

“We knew our fans would love the results — it’s not every day you get to see the players dressed in pink.”

3. Creative youngsters

Youngsters got creative at a spoon puppets session.

The activity was hosted by Clydebank Library where the kids brought wooden spoons to life with colourful costumes.

4. Coffins, Pipers and Executioners

Thousands of protesters turned out to support St Margaret’s Hospice at a rally.

Around 5,500 people — many of them Bankies — descended on George Square in Glasgow to take part in a ‘funeral procession’ complete with coffin, bag pipes and a chief executioner.

The spectacle was intended to represent the dignity in death afforded at the hospice and was a symbolic protest against Greater Glasgow and Clyde health board’s proposals to “kill off” the facility.

5. Little ones taking those first steps into school

Excitement, nerves and a little bit of trepidation — and that was just how the parents felt as their children started primary one.

The kids enjoyed their first day at St Eunan’s Primary in Drumry under their new teachers Caroline Lowe, Joan MacNeil and Theresa Kielty.

6. Bankie star came to man’s rescue as he had fit

An epilepsy sufferer was saved from a potentially fatal fit by Wet Wet Wet star Tommy Cunningham.

The Clydebank son was passing in his car when he spotted stricken Albert McGlinchy by the side of the road with his carer.

The drummer stopped to assist fitting Albert.

Grateful Albert, 58, thanked the pop celebrity for his selfless act.

He told the Post at the time: “I took a fit down in Duntocher, close to the Antonine Wall.

“I was on the ground and bleeding from where I hit my mouth.

“Tommy was driving past, and he stopped and asked my carer if everything was alright.”
