Red Monteith

Bill Elliot recently acquired some items from the collection of the late Jack 'Red' Monteith. Red was a popular reserve at both Glasgow White City and Old Meadowbank in the fifties and sixties. We're delighted to be able to share some of these items with you.

  • Jim Henry:

    "Re first photo. The guy on the left I think is Bill McNeil who was a junior at Motherwell."

  • Lee Morris:

    "Thanks for sharing these great old photos. Am I correct in saying that Glasgow speedway honour Jack (Red) Monteith by choosing a reserve race to be run for the Red Monteith Trophy, with the winner receiving a very handsome inscribed silver plate?"

  • Matt Mckie:

    "The Jack "Red" Monteith memorial salver was donated by Chemtec UK, Jack's employer at the time of his death ( 12th Jan 2010 ) The salver is awarded to the winner of the reserve's race ( Spring trophy Glasgow v Edinburgh ) Matt McKie , work colleague of Jack and Glasgow supporter."
