Re: Scottish Junior Cup Final 1888

The Scottish Umpire said that both teams were at full strength for the second replay, which means there were no surprises. As there were no contemporary reports with line-ups, the answer can be found in retrospective articles. The Wishaw Press of 8 December 1939 covers the golden wedding of one of t...

Re: Goddard for Ayr United?

There is no mention of him in the Ayr United history, but there were several trialists who played under an assumed name that season so it is possible he was one of them.

Re: Ireland 1 Scotland 5 1 March 1902 - goalscorers

Did other purchasers get sent a link to the online database? Just occurred to me that I heard nothing more.

Re: Rangers Minor Friendlies

The first place I would look is the Evening Times, if you haven't already done so. For example, here is the edition for Saturday 4 April 1970: https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2mus-XyGPC0C&dat=19700404&printsec=frontpage&hl=en Looking at that date, it does cast doubt on the Drumchapel fixture ...

The Evening Times match report for the 1951 game says: 'The incentive in this game was the cup presented by Mr Mears, chairman of Chelsea, for annual competition between the clubs.'

Also, I think the other match you were looking for was Keith 1, Stenhousemuir 5, played on Sunday 12 November 2006.

I've now compiled a long list, mainly by searching through RSSSF - Scotland have been awarded 82 penalties, of which 63 scored and 19 missed/saved (although three of those still resulted in goals scored on the rebound). As for penalties conceded by Scotland, I've found 50 scored but just four missed...

However, Robert Penman signed for Motherwell from Ashfield in the summer of 1914 (going straight into the first team). James and Robert Penman were both full backs, ...
