The second Helensburgh Advertiser

THE second and current Helensburgh Advertiser was launched by Craig M.Jeffrey and his brother Ronnie in 1957, and the paid-for weekly has since become one of Scotland’s mostly highly respected local papers.

Few have made a greater impact on the life of Helensburgh and district in the past half century than Craig — a talented writer, a consummate salesman, a man of real character with a tremendous sense of humour, a 100 miles an hour man to those who knew him or worked for him.

The original Helensburgh Advertiser

THE current local weekly paper the Helensburgh Advertiser is actually the second burgh paper of that name.

The original Advertiser was printed and published by J.Lindsay Laidlaw at 19 East Princes Street, and was launched in 1891 as a weekly free newspaper.

Helensburgh Football Club

A BRIEF history of Helensburgh Football Club has been put together, mainly from newspaper archives, but also from two people who attended home matches.

Looking through the newspaper archive there are no games recorded for Helensburgh FC between 1886-89. The club was a founder member of the Scottish Football League division three in 1923 and left the League when the third division was disbanded near the end of the 1925/26 season, although they continued to play in other leagues.
