Northampton Town 1906

Hello, everyone! Apologies that this is clearly an English-related question, but I know the best research brains are on this website and wonder if anyone can help. I am looking for the eleventh player in the Northampton side which drew 2-2 with Bristol Rovers in the Southern League on 10th Nov 1906....

Re: Dates of birth and death

Thank you. Could well be John Granger, if one played for Celtic. No direct link with Rovers. I have written biographies of all Rovers players, so occasionally other names get mentioned, perhaps supplying the cross for his headed goal or being the keeper who saved his shot. For completeness, I am try...

Dates of birth and death

We are hoping our book of biographies of every Bristol Rovers player, 1883-1939 will soon appear. I will put details on here when I know more. In the meantime, a few Scottish players get a name-check in the text. For most I have dates, but am looking for years only of birth and death for the followi...

Re: Bill McCartney

And also his team-mate Andy McGeachan (I have born 1882 - when did he die?) - sorry, I should have added both in the original request. Thanks for any help with this.

Bill McCartney

Does anyone have dates of birth and death, please, for Bill McCartney, who played for Hibs and Clyde prior to WW1 and won a solitary Scottish cap in 1902?

John McKenzie

John Wilson McKenzie (1886-1943) played 89 times at full-back for Dundee, 1904-08. Does anyone know which was his first game? I have the line-ups at the start of the season and he wasn't playing. He definitely played 15 Oct 1904 v Morton. His debut is likely to have been then or in one of the two pr...

Re: John Law McNeil

Just bumping this thread. Johnny McNeil played in one wartime game with Bristol Rovers in 1939-40. Does anyone have further information on him, other than what is already here? Anyone know a date of birth (more accurate than "1906") or a date of death, please?

Re: George Allan

I have tried to find an answer for you, but with limited results. George Allan definitely played: 25.8.1894 Clyde 5 Leith A 2 1.9.1894 Dumbarton 3 Leith A 2 17.9.1894 St Bernard's 6 Leith A 3 I have no reason to doubt the seasonal totals you have.

Re: Oldest Scorers

Not strictly the same topic, but a parallel one .... Rab Douglas' game at the weekend for Arbroath makes him one of the oldest players to appear in the Scottish League. Here is a provisional top seven, but I am sure there are more to add - so, here is a starting-point for the oldest men to play in t...
