I've only just noticed this!

Heartfelt thanks to David for creating and maintaining this excellent site, and well done Alan for taking it on. Good luck to both of you.

Re: 'New' Fife FA 1903

Thanks, I thought that was the case. It seems that Cowdenbeath, Lochgelly and Dunfermline wanted to withdraw from the Northern League because they were earning little more than the guarantee from away fixtures. At the meeting in Kirkcaldy in March to discuss the Fife League proposal, Hearts of Beath...

Re: 'New' Fife FA 1903

David, were Cowdenbeath not expelled from the 1902/03 King Cup after going ahead with a pre-arranged Northern League match instead of their cup tie? Dunfermline did the same on 7th February, playing Cowdenbeath in the Wemyss Cup after being ordered by the East of Scotland FA to play a Consolation Cu...

Re: Celtic v Borders Select - Photo - Date? Venue?

There had been a trail match at Mossilee on Wednesday, 4 April with a view to selecting a team to play Heart of Midlothian, Celtic and Rangers later in the month, according to the Southern Reporter the following day. It gives the teams and the clubs they represented. If you haven't got access to the...

Re: Celtic v Borders Select - Photo - Date? Venue?

Celtic played a Borders Select on Wednesday, 18 April 1906 at Mossilee, Galashiels. I believe the score was 4-0 to Celtic. A newspaper report on the day of the game gave Celtic's team as Adams, Watson, McLeod, Young, McNair, Hay, Bennett, McMenemy, Quinn, Somers, Bauchop. However, a later report sai...

Re: Consecutive Penalties / Penalties in a Season

George Duthie of Dunfermline also scored 14 penalties in 1957/58. Like Hubbard it was 12 League & 2 League Cup. They must have shared the British record until 1971/72, when that infamous Manchester City player Lee Won Pen netted 13 in the league and 2 in cup-ties. Leatherstocking, Baird & Shearer al...

Re: Number of Players Used in a Season

Dunfermline used 14 players in winning promotion in 1933/34. It would perhaps have been lower but for the four different players given a run in the 'problem' number nine jersey.

Re: 1930 Scottish Schoolboy

He was also selected to play against Ireland at Pittodrie on 31 May.

Anyone know the Scottish scorers in the Wales & Ireland matches?

Re: Playing Each Other 4 Times Running

I would imagine it happened fairly frequently in the pre-WW1 Scottish Qualifying Cup, which was given precedence over other competitions. In 1910/11 Dunfermline met Kirkcaldy United in four successive QC ties between 17 September and 5 October. Dunfermline also played Raith Rovers four times in a ro...

If Snuff's book only lists the players in alphabetical order, I can give you the correct formation.

It was played on 21 April. The Scotland team, and missing player, was: Johnstone; Hogg, Rennie; Hackett (Midlothian), McDonald, Muir; Colville, Burns, Mulheron, Barnes, Phillips. After losing 5-0, only Hogg, Rennie, Muir & Colville were selected for the team to play Wales on 5 May. Jim Colville (Que...

Re: West Fife Junior Cup 1915/16

Gogsy, I've come across the semi-final line-up in one of the papers and your information is correct - Hearts of Beath v Dunfermline and Lochgelly v Inverkeithing. No Glencraig in the last four, let alone winning it. I also doubt that Dunfermline reached the final but I can't find anything further.

Re: West Fife Junior Cup 1915/16

Thanks for that, Gogsy. Should the abandoned match not be 23rd October, though?
