Re: Felix Staroscik - The first Pole in Scottish Football?

Somewhat bizarrely, the Scotsman article has just been updated with copious details on the post-war Poles. For those who didn't see the original, it talked of the Hamilton players in 1970 as being 'the first'. Ah. Yes, I looked at that and wondered if soccerhistory had missed something. Somewhat me...

Partick Thistle: Alan Rough; George Mackie; Brian Whittaker; Jackie Campbell; Andy Anderson; Ian Gibson; Bobby Houston; Alex O'Hara; John Marr; Sandy Frame; John C...

Re: Alex Harley

According to the death register, Alexander Alistair Harley died in Birmingham July-September 1969 (and it confirms his birth date as 20 April 1936). In a quiet hour I trawled through the Evening Times for those three months as they were quite good at notifying deaths of former players. However, alt...

Re: Partick FC and Darwen

Andy, very well done in uncovering the birth of Partick FC. It’s a beautiful thing is it not? I wonder if their ground was Inchview (later to be home of Partick Thistle as you know) from the off? Brian McColl’s mega club list says that it’s so. As always, would be good to find a report to tie it dow...

Re: Partick FC and Darwen

Thanks, glad you enjoyed the article! Hugh McIntyre He is perhaps the most interesting character of them all, vacillating between Scotland and England as a football mercenary, then acting as a kind of agent to recruit players for English clubs through the 1880s. There is a wealth of info about him ...

Re: Clubs Reforming

What I can't stand more than anything is the lack of consistency. As a past thread on here showed, there are a huge number of current Scottish senior clubs who, ever since the 19th century, have had spells of retirement or have went bankrupt and carried on as if nothing had happened. It's a dilemma ...

Re: Partick FC and Darwen

Thanks for the article, a pleasure and an education. I don't know whether to reply to the blog, on here or gie a'body else peace and e-mail you. I figure queries are best on here - in amongst the fellow historians where 8 eyes are better than 4 : - ) I was interested to note that Edward Suter was bo...

Re: Oldest Surviving Scottish Internationalists

Congratulations to Johnny MacKenzie who hits the grand old age of 90 today.

I'm sure he'll be tuned him from Tiree to Tblisi tonight.

Let's hope he's got more than one good reason to celebrate later this evening... 'mon the Scots!

Re: What's the earliest film of Scotland in action?

^ Very good Alan, gotta love a bit of trivia on the side. That wouldn't happen today of course, although I do recall a gentleman by the name of Mr Miller from the early 1980s who had a good go at taking that old tradition one step further by both playing and refereeing against England at the same ti...
