finally managed to track down the great mans grave,(thanks to the photograph), it is in a poor state in a pretty neglected cemetery. Did he not have a couple of sons?

His great grandson and the club are well aware of the situation now and are dealing with it in a fit and proper manner as far as I know.

I wandered through at the weekend again and do so every now and then just to make sure there are no further problems, I think seeing the whole cemetery gives people a sense of perspective as to why the Maley family grave is in such a poor state.

Looking forward to it being rectified with fitting memorial to an incredible man.

His 1953 obituary at the Evening Times is a nice read if you haven't seen it before.

A great little article previewing the SAAU 100 yards which Maley won in 1896 at Hampden Park.

W Maley of the Celtic may compete in the 100 yards and if in form combined with his reputation for spasmodic effort, there is no saying what he might accomplish. At all events he is a quantity that must be reckoned with in any calculations indulged in concerning the issue of the race.

Does anyone know the exact address where the Maley's lived? I read in his book it was known as Argyll Place in Cathcart. There is a cottage on Clarkston Road at Merrylee Road (no.250 I think) which has 'Argyll Place' etched on it? Could this be the house Brother Walfrid visited all those years ago?

Heres a google map link, its the house to the right of the bakers..LINKY

Never even thought about where the Maleys lived Paul, i have read it was Argyll Place in New Cathcart which is quite a distance away from that cottage in Clarkston Road, hopefully someone else can look up a early street map showing Argyll Place.
