In fact this trail stars in neither Johnstone or Paisley but in Kilbarchan. But it is the two larger towns that will take you round the World. In fact there is a good argument for Paisley through its five decades of supremacy in the production of cotton-thread to be designated the main launch-pad of football worldwide. Mills would be built in Europe, North and South America that would lead as night follows day to towns-people planting the seed almost everywhere they went. And its clubs, initially
Abercorn and then St. Mirren would produce players, who even at first asking would continue the process literally to the pinnacle of the game, the World Cup. Such has been the influence that Paisley's Woodside Cemetery contains the graves of more of Scotland's early internationals than any other in the country, including even Glasgow's.
