Re: Online player detail sources for SFL clubs

For 2008-09, myself and a few others put this together: http://www.nonleaguescotland.co.uk/whoswho/data/ I could never really find a decent way to present it unfortunately but one of the guys slogged away to do an updated 2009-10 version which I'll get online soon, time allowing. I have all player d...

I attended Auchinleck vs. Fort William and estimated the crowd to be around 600.

I did a wee pan in the 2nd half, unfortunately missed out the corner by the pie stall.

I am at present going through my limited collection of Scotland Youth programmes and listing all the players involved. I would be grateful if anyone has a programme I am missing and they could scan in the relevant pages (team lists, pen pics, old matches) and send them through to me. Thanks Loosely...

Must admit, despite being a football fan of nearly 40 years old who has been going to football over 20 years I actually have no idea in reality why we have "juniors" and what the actual difference between a "junior" and a "senior" is given that neither is amateur. This is partly of course because t...

with us having to reinstate players from Senior to Junior level regularly, even if they have not ever played Junior before. That's the bit I don't understand. Just a historic term I suppose! Reinstatement also only lasts 14 days and then expires so has to be renewed, again at the cost of £40. On th...

Well, you can't be RE -instated to a level you've never played at. Ferguson seems to be suggesting there was a rule disbarring players from junior football if they made their senior first team debut without having previously played as a junior. I can't be certain but I think there must have been so...

Was 3rd edition as high as 70% for DOBs? From looking at Version 2, most players pre-SFL review (1980) lacked a DOB unless they were Junior reinstatements, anglos or full internationals.

I still tend to regard Tony Mason's Association Football & English Society, 1863-1915 as the best and most readable work. Other useful books include John Harding's Living to Play (which is essentially a social history of the footballer); Steven Tischler, Footballers and Businessmen, The Origins of ...

Reinstatement to Junior level

I was reading Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography recently and was intrigued by a wee story he told of when he was preparing to make his Queen's Park 1st team debut in the 1950s. Fergie's dad was furious that he wouldn't consider signing for Benburb first, in order to allow him to be reinstated back t...

Have many other DOBs been added? I got the first two versions but held off on version 3. This is the 4th one now?

Now I know we really are talking about different programmes. I find the idea of David Begg 'drooling over Rangers' richly comic. His legendary downbeat commentary of a Rangers goal is, well, legendary. Someone on another forum posted a clip of his commentary for Barry Ferguson's goal at Hamilton la...

Re: Livingston crowds - again

I can't find an attendance figure for yesterday's Livingston - St Johnstone game anywhere. This is getting to be quite a regular occurrence as it's happened several times over the past few seasons. Can LLD or anyone sehd any light on why this is happening? Also the figure if anyone has it. Did this...

Fair do's. As I said, I've never actually heard it. I do know people who say they like it though. I prefer Open All Mics to live commentary as I like the overview it gives. The Beeb did it the past seasons in the Scottish Cup's early (SPL) rounds as a trial and the trial was so popular it was expan...
