Re: The Sunday Post at BNA

I just picked an issue at random http://londonhearts.com//scores/images/1935/1935101207.jpg Is this what you were working with when you copied to your site? I guess it helps to preserve the papers if they're bound this way, but maybe they could have been unbound when they were scanned. There may be...

Re: Gateshead FC & the Scottish League

Even today, infact, SFL only insists you apply to become an SFA Associate member within 14 days of joining. SPL, for example, demand Full membership upfront. And all clubs to play in Scotland "save in the case of Berwick Rangers FC" :P. So you have only to apply. Does that mean that you can still g...

Maybe, but that part agrees with my own memory, both as to the fact of it happening and the date range. My source was either the Daily Mirror or Grandstand.

Re: Gateshead FC & the Scottish League

I remember an attempt that was earlier than 1974. I don’t think it was a formal application but I have no details. There are passing references at a few websites such as http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/2321397/Gatesheads-goal-is-return-to-the-League.html The club’s own website places the f...

Re: Scottish Football Records

Obviously a large number of records will not have changed, some attendances, some record wins and so on. However a growing online record could tap into other details such as records for current divisions, attendance records for all grounds, even records for current and defunct non-league competitio...

Re: League reconstruction

Self interest will see the smaller division being accepted. Steve Whose? Of all the clubs that have played in the SPL under the current format, only three have never finished in what would be a potential relegation position under the proposed changes. Every other SPL club faces a much greater chanc...

Re: League reconstruction

The proposal is for a 36 game season with the split near the end being abolished. That will mean each club getting four OF matches instead of some getting four and some three. Self interest will see the smaller division being accepted.

Also Morton were officially known as Greenock Morton in the 1990s. Which has led to confusion ever since. They still appear under G in footymad results but M with football 365 for instance. If they'd called themselves Greenock or Greenock United it would probably have worked. Keeping Morton in the ...

Rangers vs.Dundee United

Congrats to Kris Boyd.

But was a second record set? Was this also the best score by a team down to ten men?

Reported on both BBC and ITV as 269, and Teletext still has that number as I write. The Beeb made a similar slip a few weeks ago when they gave Shrewsbury an attendance of around 569 instead of 5,369 - maybe they have a machine with a faulty keyboard.

Ross County vs.Partick Thistle 24th Oct

Attendance 269. What on earth happened to the other 1,500 (based on the average so far this season)?

It's easy for a club to finish rock-bottom and be terrible, but (it should be) much harder for the clubs in the higher tiers... In fact many of the Scottish League's worst performances were set in the top division. Starting with 1893-94 when the second division was founded the progressive record is...

Re: Scottish Football in the Victorian Era

Included are the playing records of the member clubs for a decade from 1875 and then again for the first few years of the 1890s

What happened to the years 1885 to 1890?

HibeeJibee 2 records set by Senior (though not Scottish League) clubs - which I'd be interested if anyone can disprove. (1) Easthouses Lily are the first club in the history of Scottish Senior football to be relegated without a negative GD; and (2) Peebles -112 GD is the worst ever of any relegated ...
