Re: Third Lanark documentary on BBC Alba

Thanks.

For anyone still interested in seeing the film, it is on BBC iPlayer until the beginning of March - within the UK only, unfortunately - at this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09qc907

Re: Another Scotland international - J Gourlay x2

No, just plain Robert, born 1858 in Barrhead.

I have him at Arthurlie 1879-87, and no other clubs. Does that tally with your own info?

Re: Another Scotland international - J Gourlay x2

Apologies if this has been posted before but reading through press reports from the 1880's relating to Arthurlie I came across new info for me at least. McPherson who was capped against England was commonly thought to be Robert as it was 90% R McPherson so on seeing him listed as B McPherson I just...

Re: William A. Dickson b. 27-08-1866

It took a while, but I've now confirmed his (illegitimate) birth on 5 July 1866 at Rattray, Perthshire.

Third Lanark documentary on BBC Alba

BBC Alba will be showing a new documentary on Third Lanark on Saturday 27 January 2018 at 9pm. And no doubt thereafter on iplayer. It tells the story of the club, with a particular focus on its demise. I may appear at some stage (at least I should hope so, given the amount of time they spent filming...

Re: 1980/81 season : Help required

My first reaction was to point you at the Evening Times archive on Google newspapers, but I see they are missing a lot of issues in 1980 and even the edition for Saturday 9 August, which includes the Sports Times, is missing a few pages. Here is one quick answer, from the Rangers Football Companion ...

Re: London Hearts results database

Perhaps it would be better to try the Match Reports database: http://www.londonhearts.com/scores/images/hnews/yearlist.html

Just click on a year, and then for each date it includes all the relevant matches.

Re: Wales - Scotland 2-0 16th May 1981

I just watched a video of the match on Youtube and although brief highlights can be misleading, it would be hard to find a worse defensive display from a Scotland team - not hard to see why this was Gordon McQueen's last cap. On the sending off, two points. First, it was a second booking rather viol...

Re: UK Amateur Internationals

From the Austrian news archive, there is a report on the Slavia Prague v Amateur XI game on 8 November 1908: http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/anno?aid=ptb&datum=19081109&query=%22fussball%22&ref=anno-search&seite=5 (halfway down left column). The script is hard to decipher, but I t...

Re: UK Amateur Internationals

I've just received the book, and want to say what an impressive piece of work it is. Great value for a tenner! I ordered via Lulu and it took about a week to arrive. A couple of production comments, which you might be able to fix. The front cover seems to have been uploaded at the wrong size, as it ...

Re: Admira Wien tour of Scotland 1954

However, that seems to be wrong. I've just found the match report in the Evening Times of Saturday 17 April: http://www.londonhearts.com/scores/images/1954/1954041710.htm

That, of course, means the Rothes/Elgin game was on a different date, and it was scheduled for Monday 19 April.
