Re: Here We Go Again

Whilst agreeing with your point about the stupidity of the split, the clubs likely to be in the top six are not, in the main, the clubs to blame. It was the middle tier of Scottish clubs who voted for this stupidity, desperate, if they were in the same division as the ugly sisters, to squeeze as muc...

Finland v Scotland U-21

I'm in the process of putting details together for the c.300 matches I've seen abroad and for which I have the tickets. I've been doing fine, but I've hit a dead end with regard to the under 21 match on the 6th September 1994 in Salo, Finland. I'm looking for line-ups, crowd, referee, subs and the g...

Re: Third Lanark documentary on BBC Alba

Watched it 10 days ago. Joe McInnes's daughter, Margaret, married an old friend of mine, whilst the woman who appeared twice, Maura McColgan, used to work beside me. She left a good few years ago to take up a hospitality role at Celtic Park. As well as her father, Dan, playing for the Hi-Hi, her gra...

Re: Birth dates for Scottish internationalists

James Smith Raeside died on 17th January 1946 in Duke Street, Glasgow.

He married in December 1904, at the age of 25, a woman whose surname was Beck.

However, I can find no record of him having been born in 1879, as seems most likely.

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.

Re: schoolboys who are now nearly 70!

Thanks for reply, but I'm still left scratching my head. There is no mention in either line-up of the guy I was looking for - (Dennis) Irwin McIntyre, whom I bumped into the other day. Irwin was born in 1950, so I had assumed that 1965 or 1967 would have been the year. Perhaps its my memory. I was s...

schoolboys who are now nearly 70!

Does anyone have the Scotland line-ups for the schoolboy international matches at Wembley in 1965 and 1967?

Re: NUMBERS

No, Tam wasn't involved. It was another local worthy, who was actually a very tidy footballer, who did the damage. His son went on to be quite successful with the Burgh.

Re: NUMBERS

A rather amusing tale about the latter's use of numbered hooped jerseys. In the 1980s I played for the Jim Kennedy Celtic Supporters' Club Sunday League team. The late Mr Kennedy was a local Johnstone boy who, having played for his beloved Jungle Jims and Scotland, was by this stage working at Parkh...

Nationalities

The subject of different nationalities in the 2005 Champions' League final got me thinking about our own domestic cup final. After some delving I was surprised to find that it is 30 years since there was a Scottish Cup final when all the players and managers were Scottish. Further investigation reve...

2005 Champions' League Final

On another forum the 2005 Champions' League final of 2005 in Istanbul was mentioned. I remembered that we didn't get back into the centre of Istanbul until gone 1 a.m. I checked the details and discovered that the local kick-off time was 21:45, so, with 90 minutes plus half-time, extra time and pena...

Re: The Pompey Cup

My recollections of the time are that the Pompey Cup was played for by a limited number of teams (criteria unknown) near the end of the season. I knew that the Burgh had won it a few times, but not as few as twice.

Re: Early Scotland internationalists - new details

Interesting that, in the week of the death of Arnold Clark, the name Andy Cunningham should crop up, as I met him a couple of times when I worked for Arnold in my last couple of years at school and first couple at university. The word gentleman describes him accurately.
