Re: Auckland XI 0-4 Scotland XI 8 June 1967

Re: Auckland XI 0-4 Scotland XI 8 June 1967

I have this game played @ Newmarket Park. Do you have the NZU23 team from 5/6/67? THAT game was played on the Lower Hutt Recreation Ground.

Re: Missed penalties for Scotland

Frank Haffey SAVED one taken by Bobby Charlton @ Hampden 1960 then threw the ball into the net when referee ordered retake because Eric Caldow had encroached. Charlton put the second try wide of Haffey`s right hand but also past the post.

Yes, sorry overkeen on the keyboard there, Willie Watt DID play in the 1884 English Final.

Re: 1884 Scottish Cup winners

Might be aff ma` heid here but I think the Cup was presented right after the 1912 Cup Final but generally the winning club`s secretary turned up @ the SFA offices about a week after the Final to be presented with the Cup & 12 medals until Aberdeen`s Frank Dunlop was presented with it on the field im...

Re: 1884 Scottish Cup winners

The 1884 Final that never was! The SFA`s business committee did indeed wait before officially handing the Cup over to Queen`s Park and they also handed over 12 medals and it is generally assumed these were given to the XI players who took the field vs. 3rd LRV on the appointed Final day plus one, pe...

A long shot, I know but ANYTHING will be gratefully received. John Inglis, George Bone, ?.Wallace, James Lucas, ?.Wilson, John Goudie, John Goodall, J...

SCOTLAND Xl

Does anyone have the Scotland XI vs. the Scottish League for the League`s Centenary 18/8/1990 + any substitutes on either side + the referee? I know John Collins played for the Scotland XI; was he a Hibs or Celtic player that day?

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?
