Only one r in Rosebery. Named after Lord Rosebery, his horse racing colours were primrose and rose (ie yellow and pink), which is different to the yellow and red of Partick Thistle et al. He must have had an interest in football, being patron of the Scottish FA, and also paying for a nice trophy in ...

There are very few records of Secondary Juvenile football, so unless you stumble across something in the local paper of that era, it may be difficult getting information. The Scottish Secondary Juvenile FA later became the Association of Scottish Youth Football Clubs, and I have a handbook of the 19...

Just to clarify, Gretna were not in the East of Scotland FA; they were members of the Southern Counties FA. That was recorded correctly in the SFA handbook each year until last season. The current season's SFA handbook, somewhat bizarrely, lists them in the EoSFA. However, given they had gone out of...

There was another Scotland v Army match played on Monday, 17th January 1955 at Ibrox. Does anyone have further details? I am guessing this match was postponed, as every game in Scotland that weekend (15 January) was called off due to snow. Happy to be proved wrong, though! And here is yet another g...

In my old job at the SFA one of my tasks was running the Scottish Cup draws, from about 1999 to a couple of years ago. So I can vouch for them all being above board! It would have been pretty impossible to fix, in any case, as they were live on TV and there were different people involved every time....

By contrast, the worst penalty shoot-out I have seen was a B&Q Cup semi-final between Hamilton and Meadowbank. After the first five penalties the score was 1-1, and the final score after seven penalties was just 2-1 to Hamilton.

Early Scottish football book

Just seen this link:

It's been there for five years, but never seen it before!

Great sociological insight to the very early days of football.
