Re: Tommy Hamilton - Kilamrnock and Preston North End

Hello David, re-visiting I came across a reference to the transfer in Charles Buchan's book 'Charles Buchan: A Lifetime in Football" (1955) he states that Tom Hamilton's transfer from Kilmarnock to Preston North End Athletic for £4,600 was an English record at the time'. Killie played Preston in a b...

Re: Goalscorers

If Kris Boyd follows Billy Dodds into the 200 club then it will be a wee feather in New Cumnock's cap. Billy is fae New Cumnock and so too Kris's mum and his dad Brian played for Glenafton :)

Re: Oldest Surviving Scottish Internationalists

Karen, there's some confusion surrounding James Maxwell Sr. You say you have seen his name on a war memorial in France and that was my understanding too. I wrote in my book 'Killie - the Official History' in 1994 that he had been killed on the Western Front. But the more recent 'Killie Til' I Die' ...

It reminds of the famous Beith Juniors vs. Kilwinning Rangers league game played in the '60s and reported in the 'The Juniors 100 Years'
Beith 8 Kilwinning 9
McManus scored six goals for Beith and was on the losing side.

Re: Alexander "Alex" Galloway Raisbeck

Thanks David, .... spotted it now. So Bill (Sunderland) and Luke (West Ham) were brothers who played in the same teams of neighbours Colin (Sunderland) and Hugh (West Ham).

p.s. good result for Kilmarnock tonight, one of Colin and Hugh's former clubs

Re: Alexander "Alex" Galloway Raisbeck

Thanks Shawfield,

Looks like the Sunderland player is another Raisbeck. The on-line Sunderland records has Bill Raisbeck at Sunderland Sep 1898 to March 1901

Gloalkeeping brothers face each other in Cup final

In Season 1954/55 Auchinleck Talbot beat Glenafton Athletic 2-1 in the final of the Vernon Trophy. Brothers George Ballantyne (Talbot) and David Ballantyne (Glens) were in opposing goals. Any other examples of goalkeeping brothers facing each other in a cup final?
