Re: Scottish Footballers Roll of Honour

Another player who I don't think has been included is Bob Baxter of Raith Rovers. A half back, he made 50 appearances for the Kirkcaldy club between 1902 and 1908. Robert Baxter was the captain of Raith Rovers but, in April 1904, he broke his ankle playing in a Fife League match against Cowdenbeath....

Re: That's Fife - The History of the Fife FA and the Fife Cu

Please do PM me details of how to obtain a copy. Cheers - have sent you a PM You may also be interested to know Fife Cup draw 201...

Re: Scotland Amateur Internationals

I don't believe Schoolboy International details are on line. I do have the booklet you mention and I know there are some names missing from it. Most noticeable is the fact that Gregor Abel is the first player listed but John Abbie from Kirkcaldy played for Scotland v Wales at Central Park, Cowdenbea...

Re: 'New' Fife FA 1903

Gordon Without looking back my records I think you are correct. Obviously in an 80 page booklet spanning 130 plus years there isn't room to go into detail on every aspect surrounding the Fife clubs secession from the ESFA. If I recall Cowden played Hearts of Beath in the King Cup that season but the...

Re: 'New' Fife FA 1903

There was a bedding in period thereafter and in 1904/05 The Fife clubs’ secession from the ESFA continued to cause ructions. The smaller clubs, Hearts of Beath, East Fife and Kirkcaldy United, missed the regular fixtures in the ESFA’s various Cup competitions. There was a view that gains in represen...

Re: 'New' Fife FA 1903

I don't know what the constitution says but all the meetings/minutes nowadays refer to the Fife Football Association and the Fife Cup albeit the original terminology was indeed the Fifeshire Football Association and the Fifeshire Challenge Cup. The 80 page booklet should be available in the next for...

Re: 'New' Fife FA 1903

I refer to this is my new booklet 'That's Fife' - which tells the story of the Fife FA and the Fife Cup. 1902/03 was though a watershed season for football in Fife. To date, the Fifeshire Football Association had been a local affair and all the Fife clubs had also been affiliated to the East of Scot...

Re: Dave MacKay RIP

Dave's brothers Tommy and Frank Mackay played for Slateford Athletic. I believe both were later on Hearts books and also played for Edinburgh City. Frank was offered a trial by Manchester United and during his national service played for the army alongside Duncan Edwards and Bobby Charlton. He then ...

Re: First Scotland international in 1872

Well interestingly Queen of the South have a regional name and of course played at Palmerston in Maxwelltown rather than Dumfries from their inception. The Burgh of Maxwelltown only merged with Dumfries in 1929.

Re: Scottish Cup between the wars

It's odd that it's missed - it was played along with many of the other ties on Saturday 22 January 1927. There was a 2,000 crowd with Oswald 2 and Burns scoring for Bo'ness

Re: Scottish Cup between the wars

Bo'ness beat Lochgelly United 3-0 in the 1st round of the 1926/27 Scottish Cup so United did get a fair crack of the whip!
