Re: Derby v Scottish clubs

Re the 28.10.57 Killie v Derby friendly, would there have been a programme issued for this game?
Were Killie regular issuers at this time?

I've never come across even a mention of anything produced for the game.

Re: Derby v Scottish clubs

The three surviving members of the Killie team who played Derby in the 1890s (and were guests of honour at the April 1950 game) were, according to the programme, Jocky Johnstone, R.Brown and T.Hunter.
All three were noted as being !still resident in the town"

Re: Derby v Scottish clubs

Re: Derby v Scottish clubs

I just noticed that the programme for the 49/50 Killie v Derby game mentions a friendly the two clubs had played "sometime in the 1890s".
Kilmarnock had invited the 3 surviving members of their team that day to attend the April 1950 friendly.

Re: Derby v Scottish clubs

This is absolutely marvellous detail - can't thank you all enough. Much appreciated! Derby also played Airdrie at the Baseball Ground in 1926/7 season but I don't have a date (Airdrie won 1-0) and I've seen a match programme for Derby v Aberdeen at the BBG circa 1932 but no date for that either.

Re: Derby v Scottish clubs

Thanks so much to you both for your replies.

I’m writing an article on Derby v Scottish clubs just now for our Rams memorabilia magazine – though I’ve got all the programmes, actually
building on that with match details is proving more difficult than I had anticipated!
