Cup Winners Medals

I had Ronnie Tracey (Petershill, EK Thistle, Clyde, Albion Rovers and Stranraer) as a guest over at Broadwood recently, and he was telling he had won the Scottish Amateur Cup with Crosshouse Waverley, and the Junior Cup with EK Thistle. It got us wondering if anyone had achieved the treble ie Amateu...

Re: Oldest Player in Scottish Football...

Sorry "ScottishFA", I did do a search on "Oldest" but for whatever reason the previous didn't come up - admin feel free to merge these two if required. As another footnote, Keith Knox tells me he made his debut for Creetown in the South of Scotland League when he was 53...still to be confirmed. Cheers

Oldest Player in Scottish Football...

I know this will raise many issues as to whether the revamped Glasgow Cup (or City of Glasgow Cup) is a "genuine" tournament, but ignoring those issues for the moment it won't have been missed that Danny Lennon made his Clyde debut v Celtic Colts aged approximately 50 1/2 years. He's very probably t...

Oldest fixture in Scottish Football

Clyde's Promotion means we will renew acquaintance with Dumbarton next season. Dumbarton are our "oldest" opponents, we first met them competitively in the Scottish Cup on the 22nd November 1879, so this fixture has been running for 140 years. All the teams we previously met competitively no longer ...

Re: Three penalties

Came across the Second Division match between Albion Rovers and Clydebank on the 17th of March 1928 and thought it worthy of mention in here. Albion Rovers won 4-2, but Clydebank were awarded FOUR penalties, and according to the Glasgow Herald ALL of them were awarded for Rover's defender Cameron ha...

Re: New site administrator - Andy Mitchell

Well done to Andy for taking this on, it is still the premier information site for Scottish Football enquiries. I met Alan a couple of times at meetings he organised at the National Library in Edinburgh, so thanks also to Alan for keeping it going over these last few years.

Best Regards

Re: Tom Cranston Cap

Thanks Bluedragon. Changed days to think that a physical "cap" was awarded for a regional select game. Cheers Syd

Tom Cranston Cap

I am in touch with Tom Cranston's family. Tom, according to JL's disk, played for Ardrossan Celtic, Raith Rovers (with a loan spell at Third Lanark) and Clyde, before joining up and ultimately losing his life in the War in 1916. Anyway, they've sent me a picture of a "cap", Tom was awarded in 1912. ...

Re: Neil Hood

Neil Hood was top scorer for Queen of the South in 71/72, Hamilton in 72/73 and 73/74, and Clyde 75/76 - 77/78 and 79/80, meaning he has finished as a club's leading scorer over 7 different seasons.

How does this compare to others?

Cheers

Re: Best League 'Streaks'

Apologies if this isn't the best place to post this, but Clyde are currently on a six-game run of consecutive league draws (a club record), the last four of which have been 0-0 (again a club record). Apparently if we draw 0-0 up at Elgin on Saturday we equal the "World Record". If I'm reading the ch...

Re: CLYDE 1, CELTIC 1

Thanks a million Craig, I've been searching the match reports for that match for years now between all the usual websites and in the Mitchell as well, but totally missed the pre-match articles. Great stuff, that game has been bugging me for years. I'd better go and do my email to LS now...
