Re: Western League

Re: McCallum jr & sr.

It might be the other way round. John Litster disk says a James McCallum signed for Morton in October 1903 and appears to have been placed on the Open to Transfer List at the end of the 1904/05 season. He only played a handful of league games. He is listed as a right half. Donald McCallum was a full...

Re: Clyde Shamrock

I do not know if this helps or hinders but In the Scottish Referee (19 November 1897) there is a Danforth in the Rosebank line-up to play against Clyde Shamrock. However, on that day Clyde Shamrock were also due to play Eastern Hibs in a Glasgow Juvenile Cup tie. So perhaps Clyde Shamrock had two te...

Gabe and I have been trying to work out the goal times. We have used the British Newspaper Archive. As we know the precise goal times were not recorded as a matter of course at this time but the various reports of the game gave some times and other good clues.
