Re: Cowdenbeath FC 1880-2020

I've already received my set of Cowdenbeath histories, and would just like to say that David has done a magnificent job. They are entertaining, well designed and a joy to read. Highly recommended!

The previous Wales game had Phillips (Swansea) alongside Rodriguez (Cardiff) at full back.

Re: Three penalties

Another one to add to the list of penalty hat-tricks: Finlay Speedie scored three for Dumbarton against Ayr United on 18 November 1911. It was a Scottish Qualifying Cup semi-final.

Somewhat unusually, Speedie wrote the match report in Monday's Scottish Referee, describing his own feat.

Re: DUNBLANE ROVERS

I think these are also first team friendlies:

23 Jan 1897, QP 4 Dunblane 0
26 April 1902, Dunblane 2 QP 1

and possibly
13 May 1899, Dunblane 2 QP 2

First English winner of Scottish Cup

I have been posed these questions by Jack Thomas through the admin mailbox: I am trying to find out the first Englishman to win Scottish FA Cup. I know Jim Welford was first Englishman to win both FA Cup and Scottish Cup but was he first to win Scottish Cup? Also who was first Englishman to score in...

The Dunblane Rovers minute books are in Stirling Council archives: http://www.stirlingarchives.scot/2017/12/01/dunblane-rovers-minute-books-1921-1934/ The minutes will almost certainly list the Dunblane team, but I guess you will need to consult the Stirling Observer for the match report and the QP ...

Re: East of Scotland League 1966-67 and 1972-73

The 1972-73 table is intriguing. Without access to newspapers, the nearest I can find to an answer is in the book about Duns FC by Colin Pike, which covers the season in detail. He lists the league table each week, and at 14 April 1973 it includes Edinburgh University with a record of P25, W8, D7, L...

Re: The Scots in Europe book by Tom Poole

Yes, I do. In fact there are two books, one in 2000 and an update for 2001. Both A4, home-produced.

His surname is Pool, not Poole, by the way.

By the way, you asked the same question five years ago! viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4801&start=30

Re: William Green Chalmers (1901-1989)

He played the first five league games of the season for St Johnstone and was then dropped to the reserves. In December 1926 he suffered a badly broken ankle in a reserve match in Aberdeen and was taken to hospital. If you search 'Willie Chalmers' there is a bit about him signing for Saints in the su...

Re: Scotland v United States XI 9 June 1935

The SFA handbook for 1937 has tour details and gives the Scotland scorers in this order: Meiklejohn pen, Duncan, Gallacher, Mills.

If nothing else, it does indicate further research needed!
