Neilsonians AFC

Having just scoured the history of the Scottish Amateur league, I noticed that a team called Neilsonians won Division 6 in 67-68, Division 4 in 69-70, Division 3 in 70-71, Division 2 in 71-72, and Division 1 in 73-74, and were Coronation Cup winners in 78-79. Am I right in assuming that this team wa...

SPL reserve league

Can anyone advise if the SPL reserve league is still running in 2009/10? This may surprise some people, but the SPL reserves barely rate a mention here in Aus - hence the question. Thanks, Bill P

The use of away strips

I watched the Rangers v Celtic game live in Aus last night. A week ago I watched St Mirren v Celtic at Paisley. Celtic wore their away bumble bee outfits in Paisley yet wore their traditional gear at Ibrox. What are the rules stipulating the wearing of alternative away strips? Can someone please exp...

Players salaries

Is it just me who thinks that getting paid mega bucks for kicking a wee ball has become obscene. It is reported that John Terry has been offered a quarter of a million pounds per week to play! You may ask, what recession? I don't blame Terry or anyone else for getting as much as they can, but surely...

Scottish Juvenile Cup

I had previously asked when the Glasgow First class Juvenile league ceased to function and what had happened to the clubs. I last played in the league for Vale Utd in 1964 then went to Canada. Reading through some old threads I have discoved the list of winners of the Scottish Juvenile Cup - I alway...

Paisley Corinthians

Just saw your post. Paisley Corinthians were founder members of the Paisley and District Amateur league in the early 1950s. They folded after 3 years. In 1958/59 after St Mirren won the Scottish Cup, I with several of my mates formed a team and applied to the P and d to gain admission. The guy who w...

Who selects who plays for the Victoria Cup?

Thanks for the info re Morton and Viewfield Rovers - I presume they, Viewefield Rovers, were the winners of the Victoria Cup this year. I also noticed on Morton's website that they had beaten Carlton 9-0 in last years semi. My question now is: who can enter the Victoria Cup and how many rounds are t...

Renfrewshire Cup semi-final

Kiwiscott - truly impressive - yes, that was the game I saw. Also saw the game v Dumfermiline and had to trapse off again to Tyncastle for the replay which we lost because both our insideforwards had been gubbed on the Saturday and could not play in the replay - from memory, they were Tommy Brycelan...

Babcock and Wilcox

The official St Mirren site points out that St Mirren did not play in the Renfrewshire cup Final from seasons 1949-1958-59. Now, whether that means they got beat inearlier rounds or did not enter (this is probably the right answer0 is not clear. There is a history of the Renfrewshire cup - Poisened ...

Hampden empty for semi finals?

With all due respect to the teams left in the Scottish Cup, should we be having semi-finals at the ground when it is patently obvious that there will be great empty parts of the stadium. I watched the Saints game via Celtic and the crowd was put at just over 5,000. Is St Mirren going to take more th...

Defunct Glasgow junior Clubs

Strathclyde were certainly about in 62-63 season as I played against them for Rutherglen Glencairn at Southcroft Park scoring a goal in a 5-2 victory.
