WATCH: Ian St John’s trip down memory lane in Motherwell resurfaces

Ian Saint John was Motherwell born and bred and the love he had for his birthplace has been revisited following his sad passing at the age of 82.

The legendary forward played for North Motherwell Athletic in 1955-56 before joining the Fir Park club, where he played until 1961.

In season 1958-59, St John scored 31 goals, including a two-and-a-half-minute hat-trick away to Hibs in a League Cup tie in August 1959, and returned to managed the club in 1973.

Footage of a segment from a 1991 episode of the hugely popular TV show ‘Saint and Greavsie’ was posted online by ITV.

In the video, Saint returns to Fir Park to take a trip down memory lane and he interviews then ‘Well boss Tommy McLean ahead of what turned out to be the famous 1991 Scottish Cup final with Dundee United, which the Steelmen won 4-3.

Saint John also describes how he spent his early days earning a living in the old Motherwell bridgeworks – and recalls how he lost his job for ‘skiving’ before deciding to stick to the football.
