Re: Definition of 'scrimmage'

Snuff wrote:Might a "scrimmage" be, for want of a better description: "a mass or multi-player stoat-up"?

Yes, that was my understanding, but it doesn't explain why play would have stopped because a player touched the ball during the scrimmage, as suggested in the report.

It hadn't crossed my mind that McPherson's touch could have been handball but that explanation would make sense if it was. Thanks.

Definition of 'scrimmage'

Can anyone explain what a scrimmage was in the early days of football? In 19th century newspapers I often see references to scrimmages, often when describing goals that are, more often that not, not credited to individual players. I had it in my head that this activity would be similar to a rugby sc...

Re: Willie Maley of Celtic (and Partick Thistle and Third La

Thanks Alan

Its been suggested that the Alphabet of Celtic from the 90s has a reference to Maley at Partick Thistle. Does any one have a copy and could confirm?

Willie Maley of Celtic (and Partick Thistle and Third Lanark

Came across a profile of Willie Maley in Athletic News dated 24/10/1904. It references him playing for Third Lanark and Partick Thistle before Celtic were formed. I've never seen this suggested, although his brother Tom has previously been reported as playing for Thistle. Willie's name has never app...

Re: Willie Paul of Partick Thistle, and Queen's Park

Thanks again Forrest Seems reasonable then to refer to him as an occasional Queen's (and Thistle, in those seasons) player rather than a regular, given the available info? Harry wasn't an immediate family member - Willie had two brothers - David and James. You might be interested in a biography of W...

Re: Willie Paul of Partick Thistle, and Queen's Park

Willie Paul of Partick Thistle, and Queen's Park

Willie Paul played for Partick Thistle between 1884 and 1899. I've seen many references to him guesting for Queen's Park but had always thought of these as occasional appearances. However, as part of recent research I came across a reference in Athletic News to his benefit match in 1901 in which it ...

Scottish Football League offices in 1903

I'm trying to establish the location of the Scottish League offices in 1903. West Regent Street, or somewhere else?
