Re: Edinburgh Inter City Team 1938

Boris, I know this is a long shot but I was wondering if your family is related to a John Whitelaw who signed for Dunfermline in 1912. He came from an 'Edinburgh junior club' but so far I've been unable to find out which one. After the war he joined Dalkeith Thistle so I'm assuming he came from the ...

Re: 25/8/1976 line up requests

Dunfermline: Whyte, Cameron, Thomson, Scott (Hunter), Salton, Meakin, Watson, Evans, Georgeson, McLeod, Ross (McIntosh).

The Alloa scorers were Campbell (penalty), Russell, Forrest & Wilkinson, and the attendance was 1,364.

Sorry, I don't know the Alloa team or the referee.

Re: Fife Cup Final, 1968

Thanks for the information. I'll pass it on to the gentleman who made the enquiry, if I can remember who it was. His memory is clearly better than mine.

Re: Scottish club record for consecutive appearances?

I thought Drybrough's was meant to have been a pretty poor pint - the pair of you make it sound like it was half-decent. I'm not old enough to remember it personally.....

Dunfermline's Kenny Thomson made 192 consecutive league appearances between 15 September 1976 and 25 April 1981. He also played in 227 straight competitive matches between 15 September 1976 and 26 August 1981. Then Stanton signed Doug Considine...

Re: John Lamb Hibs player 1909-14

Seems to be the same player. He played nine times in the First Division for Third Lanark in 1914/15 and had a spell with Abercorn the following season. Dunfermline signed him from junior side Kelty Rangers in August 1920 and it was stated then that he was a former Hibs player. He couldn't break into...

Fifers and generous - there are two words you don't often see together.

Glenrothes lost that season's Junior Cup Final after a replay - they won it in 1975.

Re: Fife Cup Final, 1968

Someone who was taken to the game as a youngster remembers it happening and is looking for confirmation of the players involved. He said that they 'received a great ovation but unfortunately attitudes have changed since then'. True enough.

Fife Cup Final, 1968

This is a question for fans of Raith Rovers and East Fife.
Can any of you recall two Dunfermline players, perhaps Lunn and Thomson, parading the Scottish Cup around Stark's Park during half-time of the second leg on 4 May?

Re: League games on Fridays - TV Trend

The evening before the England match at Hampden - I had it in one set of records but not the other.
Thanks for that.
