I've got a full results sheet for Third Lanark in 66-67 which has the first game v Clyde on Monday 22 August, and the replay at Shawfield three days later on Thursday 25 August. This is at odds with the Clyde programme which says replay to be arranged, however. Certainly, Thirds had a crowded fixtur...

History of football in Penicuik

Just bought a copy of Tom O'Rourke's excellent little book on the history of football in Penicuik. Called 'Bluebells and Cuckoos' for reasons which are explained within, it is A5, 84 pages and covers the fortunes of Penicuik Juniors/Penicuik Athletic in detail, as well as some other local teams in t...

Thanks for the link, I have printed out the full booklet. However, it might be wise to take some of the final league tables with a pinch of salt as my own records have differing or contradictory results. That doesn't necessarily mean these are wrong or mine are right, as I fully appreciate this is a...

Yes, he was a Robert. I came across his first name when doing research for the SFA international archive (although I'm afraid I can't remember the source). For available info, have a look at: http://www.scottishfa.co.uk/archive.cfm?curpageid=153 Unfortunately the archive seems to have fallen a bit b...

This was a strange match, and I hadn't seen it in any other records. Both countries had been knocked out of the Olympics and I guess they arranged a friendly to keep themselves busy before their journey home from Finland. Like Dave I am mystified about the player Wilson - no-one of this name appeare...

I agree - I am fairly certain that is the tunnel at Hampden.

Did the QPFC annual sports continue after the war? Or would it be some other event, eg the coronation?

Two junior club history booklets - Blairgowrie and Armadale

Came across a couple of club brochures recently which may be of interest to historians: Blairgowrie Juniors produced a souvenir brochure for their 60th anniversary dinner last year. 16 pages A5, with a brief history and some interesting photos. On sale from the club price £4 plus postage (£1), detai...

Thanks for the responses, very helpful.

I may have written the date down wrongly - the reason I found out about the game was seeing a programme advertised.

Scotland XI matches in 1945 and 1953

I'm trying to find details of a couple of Scotland XI matches:

18 November 1945, Scotland played the Combined Services in Hamburg. What was the score?

In 1952/53, around Jan/Feb, Scotland played the British Army at Hampden, and I think won 2-1. What was the exact date?

I'll buy the Rothmans book because I always have, but was interested to see that the SPL and SFL have signed up to this: http://www.acblack.com/Catalogue/details.asp?sku=1425523&dept%5Fid=11 which is described as the official yearbook.

The Scottish Juvenile FA no longer exists, having become the Association of Scottish Youth Football Clubs in the 1990s, and then merged with various other bodies to form the Scottish Youth FA. I have a handbook from the ASYFA for 1995/96, which usefully lists international games. The Scotland v Engl...

A bit more info: He was listed as the goalkeeper in the Hibs programme for the home friendly v Schalke on 2 August 1971, so perhaps that was his first team appearance you were thinking of. Looking through that season's programmes, while he started as a regular in the East of Scotland team, he doesn'...
