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!

Re: Junior International records

By the way, I see that you have the elder brother as George Brown Key. This is another Doug Lamming mistake, he was plain George Key, born 1878.

Re: Ian St John

According to his autobiography he was called Ian as a boy, and certainly when he signed for Motherwell in 1957 he was known as Ian. However, when he got married the following year it was under his 'real' name of John.

Younger brother of George Key, who was also a double internationalist - junior in 1899, senior in 1902. What is more, the brothers had an impressive cup record. Both...

Re: King Cup 1889-90

Can't answer that fully, but Raith Rovers have a full calendar of fixtures in November 1889, with a game every Saturday. So there is nothing to indicate the game against Bellstane Birds was played.

Re: Dates of birth and death

Neil Gibson 1873-1947
Bill McCartney 1879-1945.
What are their links to Bristol Rovers?

Nobody called Tom Granger in the Celtic Who's Who. Do you mean John?

Re: 1967 Oceanic Tour 5 games updated to Full Internationals

Got to be a journalistic error. The story on Hearts website says the games 'would today be recognized as Full Internationals' but clearly were not. The Canada game wasn't even against the Canadian national team, but their Olympic amateur eleven. https://www.heartsfc.co.uk/news/article/long-awaited-c...

Re: Dates of the Scottish Amateur U16 Cup Final in 1952

There are references in Dundee Courier, as the opposition was a Dundee team. Final Saturday 17 May 1952 at Easter Road, Edinburgh Elphinstone Primrose 0 Ashdale 0 There seemed to be some difficulty in finding a ground for the replay, so it was five weeks later: Saturday 21 June 1952 at North End Par...

Re: Tom Wyllie

No, far from it.

17-year-old John Lambie was capped in 1886.

Before 1890 there were five 18-year-olds: Fred Anderson, Robert Christie, John Robertson Gow, James Tassie Richmond and William Sellar.

And several aged 19.
