Re: Herbert Craik

Herbert Craik had played a friendly for Morton and was then signed. Days after he was listed in the Morton side selected to play Kilmarnock on 29 December 1900. However, newspaper match reports show his place was taken by Colligan. He did finally make his league debut at left half on 5 January 1901 ...

Re: Junior International records

I have checked the notes of our search for Timmins and they read: “We believe Timmins was a centre-forward. A centre forward Timmons turns up at Cleland 1918-21. Then a centre forward James Timmins is at Fauldhouse United 1922-24. In one of those years the newspaper says Fauldhouse re-sign veteran T...

Re: Junior International records

Thank you very much for finding the first initial of Timmins of Shotts United. Reading through your findings I am sure that it is the same player. Often the only time in those early days we have found a first initial is when a player of the same name is in the same team. However, you then get the qu...

The SFA handbook for 1937 has tour details and gives the Scotland scorers in this order: Meiklejohn pen, Duncan, Gallacher, Mills.

If nothing else, it does indicate further research needed!
Thanks Andy. That looks to give us the order of the Scottish goals.

Young players joining professional clubs

I am hoping that someone can help me confirm, correct and/or improve my understanding of how young Scottish players became professional footballers on leaving school in the late 1950’s/1960’s. ENGLISH CLUBS My understanding is that Scottish youngsters could not become an apprentice at an English clu...

Re: Three penalties

Going off at a slight tangent I am wondering if anyone has heard of any goalkeepers scoring a hat-trick of penalties. In 1975 Kilbirnie Ladeside were missing penalties and gave ‘keeper Jim Marner a chance. They found he was rather good and gave him the job permanently. He scored 13 in a season inclu...

By the way, I see that you have the elder brother as George Brown Key. This is another Doug Lamming mistake, he was plain George Key, born 1878.
Thanks again Andy. I will correct the record.

Ian St John

I was helping “ Gabe ” review some pages of the RSSSF Scotland pages. One thing led to another and I checked Ian St John’s birth record on the ScotlandsPeople website to find a record of John St John born in 1938 and registered in Dalziel. I contacted “ J.S.

Re: Junior International records

Thanks Andy. I think we had Willie Key in the “ not absolutely sure ” column as we could not see the link from Vale of Clyde to Queen’s Park. Thank you for giving us our 57th Junior/Full Internationalist. The Key brothers International/Cup record at both grades is very impressive and probably unique...

Neil Browns UK transfer website does not list him so he couldn't have made a first team appearance.
John Litster's record show his only first team matches were two appearances in the Summer Cup that was played in May 1964.
