Re: Complete Records

IOn internett there are Hibernian, Forfar and Hearts + partly Morton. I'm not aware of some of those - are these on FitbaStats (originally iHibs) or elsewhere? Online offerings have proved very transient. Here are those I recall. I've noted in red those which seem to have gone 'defunct'. (Several a...

Re: Opening of Floodlights

Thanks very much. I noticed a suggestion on another forum that the bad winter of 1962-63 may have scupperred Dundee United's plans for a formal opening. On the topic of programmes - I have copies of: Rangers, Hibs, Hearts, QotS, Celtic, Third Lanark, Raith, Queen's Park, Stirling, Dundee Utd St John...

Re: 1938-39 Player Autographs as collected by Tommy Walker

That's a fascinating find. For the League of Ireland v Scottish League game on Friday 17th March 1939 assumption would be Bobby Bolt of Falkirk was travelling reserve and George Stevenson was trainer? It was first time a Scottish side formed the opposition in the St Patricks Day representative game....

Soccer History magazine defunct?

Any idea what's happened to this publication edited by Ian Nannestad?

I previously bought a variety of back issues, but subscribed from the spring (issue #43 or #44 IIRC).

Sadly nothing been delivered, no answers to Emails, and now the website - which never got beyond promoting #44 - has gone down.
