There was a minutes silence for the pope at the Hibs v Dundee United semi too. Some Hibs and Dundee United fans chose to disrespect it. A pity, because the pope never did me any harm and I remember we got to go out and wave at his helicopter as it passed overhead going to Rosewell. Bizaarely the fo...

I'd forgotten about the stushie that erupted in both the silences for the Pope and the Queen Mother. A good number of Celtic fans disrupted the silence for the Queen Mother (which was in all grounds - checking my archives, I find an incredible 1920's-esque press release from the Scottish League sta...

Thanks for clearing that up, given the actual totals does that mean that the Broxburn v Vale game has been recorded incorrectly?

Not intended a slight on the book merely to help people that have it for their record- 3 games which I think have been missed from the results section- 28th Feb 1976 Dundee Utd 1-0 Dundee, Scot Prem 13th May 1989 Hibs 1-1 Dundee (Wright), Scot Prem, (att 5,670?) In both cases the line-ups for those ...

Vale of Leven 1923-24

A very random question, I'm actually trying to find out information on St.Bernards, but I noticed in 1923-24 St.Bernards, Arbroath and Broxburn United all finished below with a point less than Vale of Leven in Division 2 but it was Vale who were relegated to the 3rd division for the following year (...
