Re: Soccer History magazine defunct?

There was a very long time between 43 and 44 and wondered if there were health issues. Compiling material and publishing it does take it out of you, this is a hobby in many ways and real life does kick in, believe me!

This has meant the SFHA site is down yet again and unless I can find a free host the only freely available access will be via the webarchive.

Re: John Byrne

A true trailblazer, I understand he had been ill for a number of years. His work on the Scottish Cup is phenonemal and must surely be regarded as the high point of research of the game in this country. Although I was interested in the historical side of football that book was what really got me into...

Re: The American Cup (Brechin)

From my own notes it was first played for in 1889-90 by junior clubs from Brechin. In 1901 it was reformed as the Brechin Junior League and from 1903 it was regraded as a juvenile competition. The town's three junior clubs in competed for again in 1950. The winners I have are as follows... 1889-90 C...

Re: Clydebank in Dunbartonshire Cup 1920/21

Alan, I dug this out from my notes Round robin, each club played the other once only with the top two meeting in a 'final'. I'm not sure if the Renton/Dumbarton Harp match was played but if Renton had won it they would have been in with a chance of being in the final. Clydebank - Dumbarton 2-2 Clyde...

Re: Topscorers in Division Two

John Litster's disc has some info on Div 2 scorers but is very, VERY incomplete. I understand that an update is planned for publication in about two years time, but my guess is to research this list in the meantime if you need the info pronto.

Hearts HAVE previously played 4 games at Murrayfield, so this DOES give them a massive advantage over Celtic.
