Have to agree, especially when the tournament is without a sponsor so there are no fringe benefits. I'm all in favour of expanding the tournament to bring in junior clubs, and other SFA non-members (eg Crichton, in today's draw as South of Scotland League champions). But for all the intrigue of havi...

I'll send you an email with further info, and scans of the full tables I have. Meanwhile, one further table to consider is 1932/33, which is covered in Tom O'Rourke's book (which I have just posted details of in the book thread). After the season's end, the EoS league committee reversed its decision...

I met Jackie not long ago, shortly before he retired from Stirling University where he had been working in recent years. Still keeps in touch with former colleagues, in particular the Newcastle team that won the Fairs Cup. He lives in Dollar.

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?
