  1. Hello friends.

    This is a really terrific site and not only for St Mirren supporters. I hope you don’t mind but I have dipped into your article about James Dunlop for a piece on https://www.thepurpleyin.com/history with full acknowledgement given to Cairter’s Corner.

    I hope this is OK with you. If not, please let me know and I’ll remove it from my site.

    All the best
