When the Scottish All-Stars line up against Steel Workers on July 13, the inside right position will be taken care of by one of the greatest players that the game has produced. The player referred to is Jim McMenemy, known to Scottish football fans as "Napoleon." The sobriquet is well applied.
As a strategist he has few equals and no superiors and his command over the ball is still as good as ever despite the fact that he has been playing in first class football for nearly twenty years.
For seventeen years he played for the famous Glasgow Celtics, and during that time he was selected to represent Scotland in about twenty International games against the select of England, Ireland and Wales. About two years ago the Celtic management seemed to think that he was slipping and he was given a free transfer. However, Napoleon thought that he was still as good as ever and he promptly signed with the Patrick Thistle F. C. and had the satisfaction of piloting the latter team to victory in the final of the Scottish cup last April before 60,000 spectators.
He has never been known as a great shot, but his absolute mastery over the ball is the despair of opposing halfbacks.
Partnering McMenemy on the wing will be another International star of the first class who has played with him for years and the left side of the Bethlehem defense can expect a lively 90 minutes.
