JOIN us as we take a trip down memory lane to reminisce about what was happening in Clydebank fifteen years ago.

We have delved into the Post’s archives to pick out some stories from over a decade ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition published on Wednesday, October 8, 2008.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

1. Drumchapel pupils meet cutting-edge sports coach

Clydebank Post: Sporty school pupils got the chance to meet a cutting-edge sports coach.

The youngsters at Antonine Primary welcomed visionary American coach Jim Thompson to their Drumchapel school.

Jim was in the area promoting an initiative designed to help young people maximise their full potential through sport.

2. QE2 leaves Clydebank

Clydebank Post: Hundreds of Bankies flocked to the River Clyde to say farewell to the majestic QE2.

The John Brown-built liner left home shores for the final time amidst a spectacular fireworks display, ensuring that she went out with a bang in a fitting send-off.

The dazzling display lit up the clear night sky for a full 15 minutes and bathed the ship in glorious colour as a crescendo of noise bounced off buildings and echoed along the Clyde.

3. Knightswood student nurse lands record deal

Clydebank Post: A student nurse hoped to storm the music charts following a fairytale journey from super fan to singing star.

Emma Curran, 21 at the time of publication, scooped a record deal after being plucked from the crowd to sing with pop heroes Snow Patrol in New York.

A huge fan of the band Emma had journeyed to see the stars in the US and held up a banner reading ‘I’ve come from Glasgow. Now I’m skint, but you’re so worth it’ at the front of the crowd.

To her surprise, frontman Gary Lightbody brought her up in front of thousands of fans to help sing the hit song ‘Set Fire to the Third Bar’.

4. Knightswood school earns Fair Trade status

Clydebank Post: Pupils had a fair reason to be happy with themselves.

Corpus Christi Primary in Knightswood had just been made a Fair Trade school and these seven pupils headed up the campaign to make it happen.

They were part of a steering group that organised a parent’s quiz night, a coffee morning, and a pupil fun morning to raise awareness of Fair Trade.

5. All play and no work

Clydebank Post: The youngsters at Linnvale Nursery were getting stuck in at playtime.

With so many toys on offer, there was something for every child.

Interesting shapes were being made with sand and building blocks, and one group of musical tots had their own band complete with drums and bells.

6. Rockers bid to take Scotland to the World Cup

Clydebank Post: Piping rockers Celtic Spirit hoped to play their part in getting Scotland to the next World Cup after being asked to pipe the Braveheart Scots onto the Hampden turf.

The three-piece-group – which at the time of publication was made up of just two drummers and a piper – were preparing to belt out their unique piping style at a packed national stadium before the crunch qualifier against Norway.

The Yoker band could not quite believe that from such humble beginnings, they would now be the main attraction in front of more than 50,000 passionate Tartan Army fans.
