Re: Lowland League

An interesting topic this one. And a fair bit more complex than I first realised. So it seems most of Scotland's "next biggest" are quite happy playing away locally with the chance of winning regionally and drawing derby takings etc. Well, good on them. If that's the level they're happy with then wh...

Re: Lowland League

The very idea that Broomhill Sports Club could potentially square up to Queen's Park in a play-off for SPFL status is completely preposterous. Of course, the mums and dads on the touchline would be loving it. Bless them. I'm ignorant of the politics so I'm unable to elaborate but it seems to me that...

Re: Games on consecutive days

I ran a query for Thistle since WWII. Competitive matches only. I though there would several. Turns out there have been 22 instances as follows: Tue-01-Jan-1946 Clyde [h] W2-1 (Southern League, Division A - game 22) Wed-02-Jan-1946 Aberdeen [a] L0-3 (Southern League, Division A - game 23) Wed-01-Jan...

Re: Scottish Alliance

Thanks to all helpers on the above, especially to Brian for all the hard graft in putting those Alliance grids out there on the SFHA in the first place. Big thanks to Andy Mitchell for some excellent pointers and assistance, both on thread and behind the scenes. And thanks also to Davy at London Hea...

Re: Scottish Alliance

I'm now as satisfied as I can be with all of these results, hence this final table. The un-verified games are acknowledged in General Notes.

Re: Scottish Alliance

Moving on one week in the Evening News and one more result has come in - Ayr 1 Kilmarnock 1 on the 14th May as expected. I note that the table compiler seems oblivious to his basic arithmetical errors in the Morton and Kilmarnock totals and repeats the same. Unfortunately, what with St Bernards havi...

Re: Scottish Alliance

The Evening News, obviously keen to support St Bernards, kept a regular update on the Alliance table although they never concluded, as far as I can tell, with the actual final table. http://oi60.tinypic.com/v4x7pg.jpg It's certainly not reference quality but it's helpful to an extent. For a start, a...

Re: Kilmarnock 5 Admira Wien 0, 7th April 1954

Another game for your list Steve... Amazingly, Third Lanark and Partick Thistle only played 1 friendly post 1920. I guess they probably sick of the sight of each other what with all the local tournaments. Partick Thistle 2 Third Lanark 1 Saturday 26th May 1951 (played at Dunoon Stadium) att: 2,500, ...
