Re: Scottish Football Historical Archive

Thanks for the update, Brian, I fully understand your position and hope that things improve for yourself and family in the very near future.

The point you raised, Alan, as regards possible financial support is a good one. I would also be willing to contribute.

Scottish Football Historical Archive

Has the Scottish-football-historical-archive moved again? The last link I had to the site is scottish-football-historical-archive.co.nf, however it seems that link no longer exists. Does anyone have a new link?

Many thanks.

Re: Highland League Results

Thanks Alan. I rather suspected that, a good few late nights trawling through newspapers ahead then :lol:

Highland League Results

Can anyone out there help me find the results of every Highland League match since it began in 1893? The official website only goes back to season 2003/04. I was sure Brian’s SFHA website or the RSSSF website had such an archive but this appears not to be the case. Any help on this will be most appr...

As a an addition to the above post, Dundee United’s Sam Stanton’s 15th minute goal against Dumbarton on the 28th October 2017 was the 94,000th Second Tier League goal.

100,000th Top Tier League Goal

Here is a little snippet that seems to have passed everyone by. On the 13th of December 2017, Scott Sinclair’s 41st minute goal in a League match against Hamilton Academical was the 100,000th Top Tier (Scottish League, Division 1, Division A, Premier Division, SPL and SPFP) League goal. Another feat...

Here We Go Again

Yet again we have another brouhaha brewing with fixture anomalies following the split. Anyone with a basic understanding of maths will know that splitting the league into two halves anytime before or after the half way point will cause anomalies. For a League official to come out and say that any fi...

Football: Our Winter Game

During my research on football in Springburn, I came across an article in an August 1874 edition of the Scotsman. It was a review of a book just published by Charles W. Alcock, honorary secretary of the F. A., called "Football: Our Winter Game". The subject matter is tracing the history, the origins...

Re: Maley's Record Still Remains Unbeaten

Yes Alan the Glasgow competitions were fiercely contested in those days, which is why they should not be ignored from a competitive point of view. The Glasgow Cup semi-final in that sequence attracted some 60,000 to Celtic Park – much higher than any of the League matches played. Rob, if we count Ce...

Maley's Record Still Remains Unbeaten

I have always been suspicious of what are essentially media generated records in sport. More often than not they tend to be not strictly accurate because other factors tend to be overlooked or ignored since it does not fit the profile of what they are trying to portray. When one outlet sets the ball...

Re: Help with early history of Alloa Athletic

As a follow up to my previous post above, I have come across a report in the Glasgow Herald of Monday, 21st March 1881. This referred to a match between Alloa and Bridge of Allan played on the Saturday at West End Park, Alloa. It resulted in a 3-0 victory for Bridge of Allan. Curiously enough a repo...

Re: Help with early history of Alloa Athletic

This is probably going to be more of a hindrance than help. There is a report in the Glasgow Herald dated Monday, 7th February 1881. It states that a match took place between Alloa and Clackmannan County on the Saturday (5th February). The game took place at West End Park, Alloa and resulted in a 2-...

Re: Springburn Football Clubs

William. Just a wee update for your information re West End and Burnbank/Burnbank Park/Burnbank Grounds. It is most unfortunate that in the 1870’s there was no local newspaper so information about the area is extremely rare unless it was connected to the expansion of the railway which in effect tran...
