    Celtic Graves Society tribute to Peter Scarff this Saturday

    By: Newsroom Staff on 13 Dec, 2013 07:41

  • THE Celtic Graves Society, in conjunction with the Peter Scarff Linwood CSC, will have a ceremony this Saturday, December 14 (11.30am) before the Hibernian match to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the death of Peter Scarff.

    Linwood-born Scarff joined Celtic from Linwood St Conval’s in 1928 and after being farmed out to Maryhill Hibs, he made his debut in a 5-1 Scottish Cup win over Arthurlie. That was the first of 112 appearances in which the inside-left scored 55 goals.

    At the age of only 25 he died of pulmonary tuberculosis on December 9, 1933.

    The ceremony takes place at his graveside at Kilbarchan Cemetery, Bridge of Weir Road, Brookfield, near Kilbarchan on Saturday, December 14 at 11.30am.

    Attending will be members of Peter Scarff’s family, Peter Lawwell, Anne McElhinney of the Peter Scarff Linwood CSC, Celtic Graves Society Patron and Lisbon Lion Jim Craig and Celtic historian, David Potter.

    All Celtic supporters are welcome and flowers/tributes can be laid at the graveside.

    There will be a get-together after the event at St Conval’s Social Club, Candren Road, Linwood (please note, this is the social club and not the church).

    A free bus will be available to transport supporters from the social club to the cemetery beforehand – leaving at 11am. As the cemetery is remote and parking is limited, please take advantage of this.
