Glasgow in 1901

Has anyone seen this book by JH Muir and if so does it contain much on football or football supporters. As far as I can see although the original work was published in 1901 there was a reissue around 2002.

First Substitute?

Today I came across a report for the Division One match between Celtic and Leith Athletic for 16 March 1895 when what must have been an unofficial substitute was allowed during the game. Leith's Marshall suffered a broken leg in the first five minutes and was replaced by Hamilton shortly afterwards....

I think this is likely to be the source for the statement he has 16 caps, which may help a bit:

There is a forum attached to the site so you could post a message there.

South African tourists 1899-1900

I am researching the black South African touring team ('the Kaffirs') that visited Britain in 1899-1900. As far as I am aware they played six games in Scotland between September 11 & 21 of 1899: Hibs, Morton, Ayr Parkhouse, Hamilton, Dundee & Celtic. Does anyone have details of any additional matche...

Version 3 also has the same details as Version 4. However, the Who's Who book states "A single outing ... was Gordon's sole contribution to the history of Motherwell." Are there line-ups in the Yore Publications work and what do they say?

Gordon Robinson (Motherwell)

According to The Men Who Made Motherwell Football Club , a player named Gordon Robinson made one single appearance for Motherwell in the 1951-52 season. However, my version of John Litster's disk says he also payed 6 League (3 goals) and 2 Scottish Cup appearances the following season. I'd welcome o...

My line-ups came from the Birmingham papers, so although the 'England' line-up will be correct there might have been some minor errors with Scotland.

Oldest former professional player

I would imagine Sam Latter is the oldest living former professional player, in England or Scotland. John Litster's disk shows him signing for Third Lanark on 13 October 1928. http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/home ... n-1.995822

Spring Cup

I have version 3.0 of John Litster's post-war players disk, which I am sure is not the latest edition. I had previously thought this contained full details of the Spring Cup from 1975-76, however, on a random check of the Cs there are players from the following clubs only: Dumbarton, Kilmarnock, Par...

Having spent a considerable amount of time recently trawling papers for wartime line-ups, its worth pointing out that the Sunday Post (and occasionally the Sunday Mail, which didn't always carry line-ups) regularly seems to include previously unknown names in team line-ups. On investigation these us...

You are correct about the WBA v Dunfermline match - there were two screens and one was ripped by the high winds. There were several interruptions in the broadcast and sound was cut off for a while. Were you at East End Park that night (attendance was around 7,000 from what I've read)?

Closed Circuit TV matches

I'm interested in details of any closed circuit tv matches that were relayed back either to local cinemas or the home ground of the away team, principally in the 1960s. The only record I have of a game involving a Scottish club relates to the Fairs Cup tie between Leeds and Rangers in April 1968 whi...
