Re: Felix Staroscik - The first Pole in Scottish Football?

A somewhat uninformed article on the subject of Polish players in Scottish football appears in today's Scotsman http://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/ ... -1-3991003. Ignores the presence of Polish players in Scotland in the period immediately after the war.

Just to clarify: the problem I am having is that in quite a few cases players have been traditionally recorded as having been killed in action (and have been remembered on Armistice Day each year in recent times) but when I go back to the original sources I canno...

George Falconer (Montrose, Raith, etc)

I am trying to find details of George Falconer's debut in senior football. John Lister's disk says he made 1 appearance for Montrose (possibly as a triallist?) during 1965-66. Any ideas which match this was?

Re: Any info on Thistle?

To add a few points. The situation with the clubs in the 1860s (both in England and Scotland) is quite fluid.

Re: Stewart McLean

Many thanks for the responses. I had done some work in local papers which show the Partick/East Fife man was with Dumbarton but couldn't link him to the Forfar/Stenhousemuir player and the 2 versions of Litster's disk differ on this.
