Re: Alex Smith

See the short announcement in the Aberdeen Press and Journal, 10 January 1947, when he was appointed manager of Buckie Thistle.

He played for Buckie Thistle, Forres Mechanics and Liverpool, but lost a leg in Burma during the war. He was awarded the Military Cross.

Re: Under Age Juvenile Internationals 1962

I think these were probably the Scottish Association of Boys Clubs internationals.

Scotland played Wales on Friday 16 March 1962, at Villa Park in Birmingham for some reason. The match is only mentioned in the papers as Billy Wright attended.

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?
