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. Very wary of any new product that claims to be the best, especia...

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'...

Personally, my wife can't wait to get her hands on my collection - she has seen the prices these things fetch on ebay.

Eddie Pryce signed for Hibs in the summer of 1971 from Kirkintilloch Rob Roy, but as far as I can tell he never made it to the first team. He was a regular in the East of Scotland League side, but at this time Hibs were well served for goalkeepers with Jim Herriot and then Jim McArthur. As for a pre...

If so, can someone check for the ref in the Scottish Cup tie between Falkirk & Celtic on 21st February 1953
Just dug out the match programme, which gives the ref as D. Gerrard of Aberdeen.

Not quite a record! How about Hibs and Hearts in the early 50s, each playing in Division A, Division C and East of Scotland League.
