Re: Walter Lloyd

I was wondering why I couldn't find any record of Walter but it now seems that he actually played for the Clydebank side in the junior league explaining why there was no sign of him.

Walter Lloyd

At todays Arthurlie game, well 60 minutes, there was an old fella there, 90, his daughter explained he played for Clydebank when he was 18 so 1947? I cant find any record of him there or elsewhere, anyone help?

Thanks

John Byrne

Ive seen John mentioned on these pages many times over the years, saddened to say he passed away on Wednesday. John hadnt been keeping well for a while but was still a regulat at Arthurlie home games up to the end of last season.

Re: Another Scotland international - J Gourlay x2

No, just plain Robert, born 1858 in Barrhead. I have him at Arthurlie 1879-87, and no other clubs. Does that tally with your own info? Seems to be Andy, I have him listed every season bar season 1885/86 but I only have two line ups from fifteen confirmed games to date, he does play the following se...

Re: Another Scotland international - J Gourlay x2

Apologies if this has been posted before but reading through press reports from the 1880's relating to Arthurlie I came across new info for me at least. McPherson who was capped against England was commonly thought to be Robert as it was 90% R McPherson so on seeing him listed as B McPherson I just...

4 a-side tournaments

Been reading a lot about Football Club sports days and almost everyone has mention of a 4-a-side 'football' event. My query is that on almost every occasions they mention Team A scored 2 goals and one touch down for example, I understand that a lot of clubs played cross code games at that time and a...

Re: Extra Time in Scottish Football

Re: Extra Time in Scottish Football

Just realised that it wans't even a reply, the first game finished Arthurlie 4 South Western 3 but SW appealed on the grounds that the last 30 minutes of the game were played in near darkness and the appeal being upheld and a replay ordered.

Re: Extra Time in Scottish Football

Thanks for that, it was the first replay so looking at dates, the cup was regionalised then I understand, so Arthurlie played the first game on November 13th, replay on 27th, guessing 20th was off, then the following week it was a Renfrewshire Cup tie before the Scottish on December 11th then no gam...
