Re: Opening of Floodlights

The first match @ Celtic Park under electric light was a 1-1 draw between Celtic & Clyde on Christmas Day 1893. Sixteen lamps tried to penetrate the gloomy, foggy evening with 3,000 inside the ground. On 11th January 1894, Walter Arnott playing for St.Bernards complained that the electric cable stru...

Did Jimmy Walls play any games for Cowdenbeath the year they got promoted in 1923-24 & any games in Division One for them?

Re: DUNBLANE ROVERS

Andy,
Thank you for that. I`m compiling a list of Queen`s friendlies after a desultory fashion ie. while searching for various other things, I note down any I find en route eg. games against Northern Nomads, Dunblane Rovers etc.

Re: DUNBLANE ROVERS

Thank you chaps. I`ll get in touch with the Stirling Observer. The Strathearn paper(good call, Gogsy) HAS a brief report of the game giving the reason for the game, the score and an approximate attendance. I did a brief swatch @ Frank McCrossan`s webpage and the only game Dunblane played against QP`...

Re: DUNBLANE ROVERS

Gordon,
Aye, most frustrating - that`s as far as I`ve got too. The Falkirk Herald`s no help. With all QP records pre 1945 up in flames & Dunblane Rovers disappearing just after the War, I think the chances of finding out any more is virtually nil.

Re: D v S

Gordon, Thank you for the reply(so quick!). I`ve discovered Todd Played for Kirkintilloch Rob Roy in season 1910-11 before returning to Clydebank Juniors for 1911-12. Do you have a date for the game he DID play in(1910-11)? Dunbartonshire was spelled Dumbartonshire until 1896 so I think the reporter...

DUNBLANE ROVERS

On 26th April 1927, Queen`s Park played a charity game against Dunblane Rovers @ Duckburn Park(3-3 draw) for the Victoria Hall fund. Does anyone have both teams and scorers?

D v S

I have a photograph, which for some reason won`t transfer onto this page, of an international style cap probably dark blue with silver trim to cap an peak with D v S in silver thread on the cap and 1911 on the peak. I believe it was awarded to Alex Todd who signed for Queen`s Park circa 1912. He liv...

Re: Fastest Scotland international goal

I was @ the Scotland vs. Brazil in 1966 & had been given a brand new stop watch as a present. Stevie Chalmers` goal came after 38 seconds. Pele`s equaliser came after 15min 3sec.

Re: Oldest Surviving Scottish Internationalists

Very sad to hear about Bobby Brown. He made his Queen`s Park debut vs.Celtic @ Parkhead in a 4-4 wartime league game on 13th April 1940 aged just 16yrs 25days. He was more or less QP`s regular `keeper intil 1942 when he joined the Royal Navy making sporadic appearances at Hampden until sharing goalk...
