AN ARCHIVE picture of one of the Wee County’s most famous sons has emerged, following an Advertiser feature on how the Tommy Speirs story will be immortalised.

One of the legendary Wee County boxer’s daughters, Jean, was keen to share another picture of her father, following last week’s story about how his memorabilia will be preserved at a University of Stirling archive.

Tommy is pictured with the Alloa Athletic team of 1929-30, and can be found on the right in the back row, next to chairman TC Shanks (pictured).

He is listed as a trainer along with his father Robert, who is on the far left in the middle row.

The spelling Spiers is used for both men, the mystery surrounding the spelling of the name was previously highlighted in a 2014 Advertiser piece.

It highlights the Alloa boxer was born Spiers, yet on his death certificate and other family documents it is spelt “ei”.

It is understood Tommy’s father was one of the very first people to open a gymnastics club in the Wee County at what was then the Alloa baths and today a library bearing the Speirs name.

A range of memorabilia relating to the famous boxer, who became Scottish Amateur Lightweight Champion in 1929 and won the Scottish Lightweight Championship in 1933 after going pro, can now be found at the University of Stirling Archives as part of the Tales from the Ring project.
