The Evening Times of 1st December 1966 had the following article about him
"Ian Nelson, goalkeeper of Glacier Metals in the Glasgow Amateur League has turned goaltender to ice hockey team
Crossmyloof Dynamos, writes ALEC BAXTER.
Ian was rapidly coming to the forefront with the Glaciers, and looks like doing likewise at Titwood Road
"Last season" a rink official told me, "Ian really pestered the team manager far a trial as a goaltender. In an emergency
this season he was given his chance and his brilliant form amazed us"
Ian doesn't want to fall between the two sports and so soccer has lost a personality"
Obituary - Ian Nelson
Scottish Ice Hockey was saddened by the recent death of former Glasgow and Paisley netminder, Ian Nelson.
Players and officials, past and present, joined some 200 mourners at his funeral in Glasgow to pay their
last respects to "Nellie" as he was affectionately known.
Ian, who spent all his playing career at Crossmyloof, with the dynamos side of the late 60s and the Mohawks
in the mid 70s, will be greatly missed by his many friends in the sport.
Glasgow Dynamos would like to take this opportunity to extend their sympathies to his wife and family
