Re: Old League Cup criteria

Thanks Gordon. A wee bit mair 'meat on the bone' as Tam Cowan would say... The Southern League Cup of 1945-46 was first to introduce the counter-intuitive form of seeding, with Scotland's Top 16 in the top half of the draw being pitted against each other, and the bottom half similarly competing amon...

Old League Cup criteria

For a number of years from the 1950s to 1970s, the winner of the "outsider" 9th section of the League Cup groups played in a supplementary round with one of the 8 "primary" group winners. I've noticed two things; none of the big guns were ever involved in this supplementary round...

Re: Junior International records

Andy, thanks for the new info on Jimmy's birth! Worth pointing out that both Jimmy McMullan's and Pat McMullan (another relative?) played for Denny Hibs at the same time, as noted in the Denny Hibs history that was published in the Evening Times in 1933. Little wonder there's some degree of confusio...

Re: Online Archive

NOTE TO ADMIN: tried to send a PM to tribalcolours but got the message: "The requested users to be added do not exist." Hi That's a very generous offer you've made to the forum. Could I take you up on it for the Thistle stats? I'm working (with a little help from 1 or 2 others) on compili...

Re: Birth dates for Scottish internationalists

^^ Brilliant Vasco, many thanks! As far as I can make out Hugh McHardy was born in Anderston on 22nd November 1860 and died in Paisley on 30th May 1912. However, he had a fairly tenuous connection to Partick Thistle - just one match on 8 May 1886 as a trialist, a friendly against Morton. He joined S...

Re: Birth dates for Scottish internationalists

John McCorkindale didn't play for the old Partick FC, having joined Thistle from Dalmuir Thistle in February 1888. And he only played once for Rangers as a guest, letting in eight goals in a friendly at Everton in 1890. You would dare stand against the great Litster? Haha, to be fair, there's not a...

Re: Scoring in consecutive SPL/top-flight matches

Delighted to hear about the life stats discovered for Evelyn Morrison; thanks indeed, cowdenbeather. South Africa missed a trick methinks; had they made the call they'd have been surefire winners at Uruguay '30! The bold Evelyn was prolific at Firhill too, with 19 in 20 between 1931 and 1932, a rati...

Brilliant, thanks pal.

Re: Another Scotland international - J Gourlay x2

It never ceases to amaze me how often internet searches lead me back to this place!! Andy, The Jimmy Gourlay who scored Morton's 1922 Scottish Cup winning goal is listed on Wikipedia as being born on 11 September 1888 – with a source link to your piece: http://www.scottishsporthistory.com/sports-his...

Re: Scottish Cup

Presumably Connie McLaughlin and Gordon Duncan's YouTube round up was broadcast on Sportscene? According to the latter: "Colville Park made history on Saturday as they became the first amateur team to progress to the second round of the Scottish Cup" Misinform. Miseducate. Entertain. :lol:

Re: Old Line-Ups Required

...and 2 FA Cup final appearances. He certainly made his mark. Great to get that teamline Forrest, thank you. Was expecting to see Alec Hamilton in September 1884, the W. couldn't be a typo could it? I have one more QP problem from the early days: 03.05.1899 Queen's Park [a] L0-4 (Glasgow League - g...

Old Line-Ups Required

Concentrating on the period 'til 1907 at the moment. Any club specialists able or willing to supply their team's line ups for any of the following? Partick Thistle versus: Celtic 29.08.1888 Celtic [n] L0-1 (Exhibition Cup Semi Final) 21.12.1895 Celtic 'A' [h] L1-2 (Friendly) 09.04.1906 Celtic [h] L2...
