1959 - Born in Bellshill, Lanarkshire, Scotland

 

David Shaw Nicholls (“dsn”) was born in 1959, in the only Maternity Hospitality in many miles, beside the mining village named BELLSHILL, (Bothwellhaugh). A coal pit nicknamed “The Palace”, now under a man-made lake, hence Atlantis under Strathclyde Park, Baillieston, Lanarkshire, Scotland, was his playground, coal bings under a soccer ball, every kids escape was football and 9 out of 10 of his friends became professional football players. That was the dream.
