Re: REID - St.Mirren

Emms and Wells suggests that it was George T Reid, born in 1884 at Blackland Mill. George Reid was at St Mirren, 1902-05 (24 League games, 7 gls, first played in 1902-03 season), then Middlesbrough 1905-06 (24,6), Johnstone in 1906-07, 1907-09 at Bradford Park Avenue (38,12), 1908-12 Brentford (102 ...

Re: Three penalties

Iain Russell scored three pens for Airdrie v Queen's Park today. I make this the 13th hat-trick of pens ever in the Scottish League.

Re: Kirkcaldy footballers in America (1912)

I believe the goalkeeper mentioned was Bristol-born Cliff Bennell (1886-1918), who married Amelia Kilmister in 1912 and died in Bristol at the age of 32. He never made the first team at Bristol Rovers, but appears to have been on their books prior to 1912.

Re: More dates of birth and death

I have it on good authority that it was Harold Bonthron Hutchison, not Hutchinson. Therefore, the suggested dates of birth of 1883 or 1885 may be incorrect. Does anyone have any information as to dates of birth/marriage/death for Harold Bonthron Hutchison, please? His career path would be: Blantyre ...

James Smith

Does anyone here have line-ups for Dundee Hibernian in Division Two in the 1924-25 season, please? James Smith, born in Glasgow on 26th July 1882, appears to have played and scored for them that season. What I am most interested in is the date of his last game and also the date of his last goal. I a...

Bristol Rovers - The Official Definitive History

A shameless plug for my re-vamped and updated book, which has recently come out. We presented a copy to the club chairman on the pitch at half-time last Saturday. Full text for each season from 1883 to 2014, line-ups etc from 1946 only because of space - an e-mail contact is supplied and I can forwa...
