Re: East Fife v Raith Rovers 1950s pic

Actually, could the venue be Stark's Park? I don't think I've seen a pic taken from that angle back then.

Edit: Definitely not Stark's Park - the railway side terracing was covered in 1953...

Re: East Fife v Raith Rovers 1950s pic

Yes he did, but the pic is at Bayview - so I think the date must be January 1954...

Re: East Fife v Raith Rovers 1950s pic

I'm assuming the 1953-54 handbook covers that season, rather than being issued for the forthcoming season 1953-54 as the first time Copland faced East Fife at Bayview was on New Years Day 1954?

East Fife v Raith Rovers 1950s pic

I'm hoping someone might be able to identify the Raith players in this photograph. The East Fife players are goalkeeper Johnny Curran and Willie Finlay. Thanks in advance...

Re: Scottish Liverpool players

Yup, looks like wrong info.

Re: Scottish Liverpool players

I have Archie McPherson's date of birth as 10th February 1910 in Alva, Clackmannanshire. However I cannot find this doing a search on Scotland's People. I also have his date of death as 1969. Unfortunately I am not sure where I got these pieces of information from - possibly John Litster's database...

Re: Scottish Rovers

Willie Gillespie died in 1978 in Buckhaven, Fife. I am in the process of researching dates of birth and death of East Fife players, so will hopefully be able to provide you with a precise date of death in the near future. Alex Millar was born 20.1.1915 in Coaltown of Balgonie, Fife and died 3.7.1973...

Re: SUBSTITUTES

I think there is a slight differentiation now relating to having a designated substitute goalkeeper that applies in cup ties but not league games. Not certain when this rule was introduced...

Lowest attendance?

Yesterday's figure at the Excelsior Stadium was given as 450. Is this the lowest ever crowd for a game between two full-time sides? Raith must be borderline, heavily relying on gaining promotion this season, in retaining their full-time status given their home gates, while the Diamonds appear to be ...

Re: Scoring in consecutive SPL/top-flight matches

Slightly off topic, but I recently carried out some research to find out who had the top goals per game ratio in senior Scottish football. Because of the difficulty in accessing pre- 1939 records I restricted this to post-war and set the bar at 150 career goals in competitive club games. The top ten...

Anyone got the Scotland line-up for this game played at Rugby Park?
I'm particularly interested in what position future East Fife goalkeeper/ centre-forward, George Yardley played. I suspect that it was between the sticks...
