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: Scottish Rovers

Just moving this back to the top of the list - sorry! Does anyone have any dates of birth/death, as initially listed? Very grateful for any feedback. I am looking for accurate dates of birth for the following: Andrew Dick (Aberdeen, 1922-24), born Aberdeen 1900, died in Kennoway (date?) Alexander Mi...

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. Line-ups seem to fizzle out rapidly in the sources I...

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...

Re: REID - St.Mirren

Emms and Wells suggests that it was George T Reid, born in 1884 at Blackland Mill. George Reid was at St Mirren, 1902-05 (24 League games, 7 gls, first played in 1902-03 season), then Middlesbrough 1905-06 (24,6), Johnstone in 1906-07, 1907-09 at Bradford Park Avenue (38,12), 1908-12 Brentford (102 ...

Re: Three penalties

Iain Russell scored three pens for Airdrie v Queen's Park today. I make this the 13th hat-trick of pens ever in the Scottish League.

Re: Kirkcaldy footballers in America (1912)

I believe the goalkeeper mentioned was Bristol-born Cliff Bennell (1886-1918), who married Amelia Kilmister in 1912 and died in Bristol at the age of 32. He never made the first team at Bristol Rovers, but appears to have been on their books prior to 1912.

Re: More dates of birth and death

I have it on good authority that it was Harold Bonthron Hutchison, not Hutchinson. Therefore, the suggested dates of birth of 1883 or 1885 may be incorrect. Does anyone have any information as to dates of birth/marriage/death for Harold Bonthron Hutchison, please? His career path would be: Blantyre ...

Re: Half-times required

Does anyone here have access to local reports on the games at Helensburgh in 1925 and Third Lanark in 1930, as listed below, please? I've still not found anything more than a final score. Any help will be much appreciated.
