Re: Prague in WW1

With particular thanks to jeroen for those links, I've now written up the fascinating story of Johnny Dick: http://www.scottishsporthistory.com/sports-history-news-and-blog/johnny-dick-the-scot-who-put-the-iron-into-sparta

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.

Re: Prague in WW1

Wow! Thanks very much, that is an archive I hadn't come across before. The Gothic script is quite a challenge, but the information in those cuttings is incredibly useful.

Re: Prague in WW1

Thanks for the link, it's an interesting article which basically tells me there is no simple answer! And no records kept, either. Curiously, John Dick had six children, four born in Woolwich, then the last two born in Prague in 1914 and 1920 - a long gap which hints that he may have been separated f...

Prague in WW1

This is a bit of an esoteric query, but hopefully someone on this board will know their geopolitical history. In World War 1, were British residents in Prague interned, or left alone? The question maybe applies to Bohemia in general, as the country then was. The reason is, I'm doing some research in...

Re: Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire Junior Internationalists

There is no mention of a player called Marr in the Shotts BA history around that time, or of any player being capped in 1994. Was he perhaps from another club? The McKenzie of Stonehouse Violet in 1949 was Donnie (Donald Cameron) Mackenzie, who signed for Rangers that summer and went on to play for ...

Re: Oldest Scorers

Not strictly the same topic, but a parallel one .... Rab Douglas' game at the weekend for Arbroath makes him one of the oldest players to appear in the Scottish League. Here is a provisional top seven, but I am sure there are more to add - so, here is a starting-point for the oldest men to play in ...

Re: Renfrewshire Cup finals

Is there a list or book with matchfacts for all finals during the years? I've got a copy of Stewart Davidson's booklet, which gives the following answers: Herbert Craik for Morton 1900/01 - yes, both legs 1901/02 - yes, both legs 1902/03 - yes, both legs John Walker for Morton 1905/06 - no John McC...

Re: Current players who previously played with 70s debutants

Just to revive this thread, Rab Douglas played in goal yesterday for Arbroath, aged 45 (and kept a shut-out at Hampden!).

He is the only man to have played for Meadowbank Thistle still in the game, and while he was at Meadowbank he must have had team-mates who had played in the 1970s.

Re: Birth dates for Scottish internationalists

Raeside's birth was transcribed as Reside - it was on 6 July 1879. The woman he married in 1904 was Margaret Beck, but she died early in 1908 when he was at Bury. (His mother died in November the same year.) He remarried to Florence Williamson in 1910. If he died in Duke Street, I'm guessing that wa...

Re: Birth dates for Scottish internationalists

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. Those dates are correct. 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 St Mirre...

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. John Inglis died 16 August 1920 in Preston. Are you sure he played for Thistle? ...
