I see Falkirk's reserve side will be known as 'Falkirk Futures' from now on.

Public trials

I was doing a bit of research the other day and came across reports on various teams' public trial matches in 1946. Does anyone have any idea when this practice ended? Also, does anyone have details of what clubs called their two sides? Leith Athletic had Stripes v Reds, Hearts were Maroons v Whites...

The practice of giving reserve teams specific names seems to have been maintained to an extent in Northern Ireland. In their reserve league, there are Linfield Swifts, Cliftonville Olympic and Larne Olympic. Glentoran and Lisburn Distillery both signify their second team by adding 'II' at the end, w...

This is apparently where each club will enter the new Cup format next season. There seems to be an element of doubt on what will happen if Linlithgow Rose win the Scottish Junior Cup. I've heard three suggestions; Bonnyrigg Rose will qualify as East Super League runners-up, Kelty Hearts will qualify...

I think Bonnybridge in the east and Baillieston in the west are both current examples of 'non playing members' of the SJFA.

I assume that they would need to pay a subscription to maintain membership.

I am sure Penicuik Athletic retained SJFA membership as 'non playing members' in the eleven year period before they recently reappeared. Equally sure that Airdrie United sold the Clydebank name back to Clydebank supporters, so they might be the same legal entity as the former senior team, albeit wit...

Junior clubs in the Scottish Cup

With Pollok, Linlithgow, Culter and (presumably) Kelty Hearts all going into next season's revamped Scottish Cup first round, I was wondering how many current junior clubs have played in the tournament in the past? Off the top of my head I thought of - Girvan, Arthurlie, Clydebank, Royal Albert, Pen...

Allan Grieve's excellent booklet on the game - 20-0 Twenty Years On - states: "As had happened in the late 9160s they retained their Scottish Football Association membership. Selkirk Victoria, the amateur team who played in the Border Amateur League, signed up Selkirk's local-based players. They for...

I understand Bathgate Park was closer to the centre of Edinburgh.
AFAIK, Bathgate Park occupied the site where the New Street bus garage was later built, basically immediately east of Waverley train station.

Mossend Swifts

Hi all, does anyone know if there has been anything at all published on the subject of Mossend Swifts, the West Lothian team of the late 19th C?

I've often seen the attendance for Meadowbank v Rangers semi from 1984 given as 5,100 which might explain the 'lowest ever' proclaimation for the Livi v Pars game.
