Re: RSSSF Scotland records - changes

I think there may be a wee bit of confusion here. Queen`s Park did indeed play Corinthins in those days but they played only a pair of home & home fixture each season - one @ 2nd Hampden on Ne`erday & the other in the Spring wherever Pa Jackson`s team hung its hat. In 1891, Queen`s won 3-1 @ Hampden...

Re: Opening of Floodlights

I think the first Scottish Amateur Cup match partially played under lights was the Weir`s Recreation vs. PO Phones semi final replay @ Shawfield Stadium on 13th May 1958.

Re: GROUND TITLES

Would Clyde and Partick Thistle programmes give a clue to the title change?

GROUND TITLES

The International attendances thread set me thinking about ground titles and I wonder if there was an official change over from Shawfield Park to stadium & Firhill Park to stadium. I think Ibrox Park changed in 1938 when the Empire Exhibition was on. After 117 years this will be Queen`s Park`s last ...

Re: Official attendance query

The first time a Scottish International match was actually played within the boundaries of the City of Glasgow was vs. England @ Hampden Park in 1906. All matches prior to that had been in adjoining burghs eg. Govan, Crosshill, Parkhead, Partick which housed Ibrox Park, Cathkin Park(both), Hampden P...

Re: OBSCURE?!

Is there a website of junior players like John Litsters` seniors one or even a list of junior internationalists?

Thank you Bluedragon. Yup, that the juniors` side I have. Christian names please, if anyone has them, of Rennie & Paterson (Clydebank Juniors) and Mills(Cowie Juniors) who were in the Falkirk side that day?

Re: OBSCURE?!

There was certainly a Royal Engineers presence in Aberdeen in 1915 @ the City of Aberdeen Fortress(Castlehill?) so I think it must have been this one which played "Thistle...down South" on 17/11/1915 if the Press & Journal bothered with a paragraph. Oh & it was the sudgers who won 5-0!

Re: OBSCURE?!

Thank you for that clue & I`ll look @ the Couper area papers for the "Thistle" game. Regarding the Falkirk vs. Juniors game, yes the teams are given in the Falkirk Herald of 26/4/1916 as "along the lines of" which, as you know, doesn`t necessary mean that those are the players who actually turned up...

Re: Official attendance query

Incidentally, the RSSSF website is wrong regarding the venue of the first "official" international on St.Andrew`s Day 1872. The game was played on the ground of the West of Scotland Cricket and Football Club, Partick and Partick was NOT part of Glasgow at that time. It was an independent police burg...

OBSCURE?!

The Press & Journal mentions this game - "THISTLE" 5, 64th HIGHLAND DIVISION ROYAL ENGINEERS(Aberdeen) 0(ht=?) 17/11/1915 - as being played "down South" but coming from an Aberdeen paper this could be almost anywhere. Does anyone have a clue at all - actual teams, venue, charity? Additionally, FALKI...

Re: Clyde Duncan Skene

Going back to the 1908 Celtic vs. Clyde Glasgow Merchants Cup game, John Dickie @ outside right played for Rangers in 1907-08 season and for Clyde in 1908-09 and as this game was on 9/5/08, I don`t know whether he`d actually been transferred from Ibrox to Shawfield. Quite often clubs used the Charit...
