Re: 1982 UEFA U18 Championship - Lineups?

The line-ups are not in the newspapers - perhaps distracted by the Falklands War and the Scottish Cup Final - but I managed to find the team in the SFA Annual: 23 May 1982, at Kotka. Referee F Latzin (Austria) R Rae (Hibernian), D Beaumont (Dundee United), J Philliben (Stirling Albion), D Rennie (Le...

Jock McNab in WW1

John 'Jock' McNab (Scotland cap 1923) was a late starter in professional football because of the First World War. He was already 25 when he joined Liverpool from Bellshill Athletic in 1919. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about his war service, apparently in the Army? And whether he played ...

Adam McLean at Partick Thistle

A question for Partick Thistle historians: former Scotland internationalist Adam McLean was appointed assistant trainer at Thistle in 1938, and was still assisting Davie Meiklejohn in the late 1940s. Any idea when he left the club? The handbooks don't give details of coaching staff, and there are no...

Re: 1st Player to win League and Cup in Scotland with two clubs?

One thing to note about Davie Russell is that he is regularly confused with another Davie Russell, who also played for Preston North End. The Hearts and Celtic player was born 9 January 1871 at Shotts (whereas Wiki, Lamming and other sources say born in Airdrie in 1868). He died 8 November 1952 in F...

Re: Jimmy Robertson (Dundee, Birmingham, Kilmarnock and Scotland)

Yes, thanks for checking. In fact they have identified the wrong man - easy enough with a common name like Robertson! He was a school teacher in Fife, which didn't seem to tally with someone involved in a drunken shooting incident, so on further checking I found the 'correct' Robertson's birth and m...

Jimmy Robertson (Dundee, Birmingham, Kilmarnock and Scotland)

Has anyone ever come across an obituary for Jimmy Robertson, who was capped a couple of times in 1931? He was at Dundee at the time, then went to Birmingham City, Kilmarnock and (briefly) Elgin City. He was born in Dundee in 1906 but I can't find a date of death. The last references to him in BNA ar...

Bill Harper (Hibs, Arsenal, Plymouth and Scotland)

I wonder if anyone can resolve a little query about the goalkeeper Bill Harper, who won 11 Scotland caps in the 1920s. His date of death is quoted in most sources as 12 April 1989 in Plymouth. However, according to the Probate calendar, he died in 25 April 1989. There don't seem to be any obituaries...

Re: Berwick Rangers

Without conceding nearly as many goals, Stirling Albion didn't score in their last 14 games of the 80-81 season. In fact, no goals scored from 31 January until 8 August, albeit the run included four 0-0 draws.
