I've had a quick look at the Albion Rovers list and there may be duplicates as there are lots of players listed by I Sssssssss I=Initial Ssssssss=Surname or just Surname I suspect the same will be true of other clubs as well but the ones with the most players will, presumably, have the most duplica...

Re: Tyldesley

In his twisted world does this not apply to covering England. It didn't apply to Ghana either. ITV's coverage last night was appalling from that point of view. Having gone into the match as a neutral, I ended up supporting Uruguay simply as a reaction to ITV's blatant bias in favour of Ghana. I was...

Charles Noble Phillips

I am searching for information on Charles Noble Phillips, a forward with West Ham and also with Ayr United prior to World War One. Charlie Phillips appears to have been top scorer at Ayr in the 1911-12 season, but I know little else. Could anyone fill in details about birth, death and career, please...

I certainly don't have any answers to this (I know for south of the border ...), but here are a few names for starters, in the hope someone may know. George Johnstone (born 15.12.1914) played in one League game for Cowdenbeath in the 1958-59 season, when he would have been 43/44. Does anyone know of...

Mitchell Knight

Does anyone know anything about the life and footballing career of Mitchell Knight, who joined Bristol Rovers from Aberdeen, as a teenager, on trial in November 1969, but never made the first-team at Eastville? Any information gratefully received.

Half-time scores

I think the answer to the question is that, in big scores, many more goals are scored after half-time. There seem to be lots of occasions when a team has, for instance, scored twelve goals and been 3-0 or 4-0 ahead at half-time. All too often, when a team has six or seven before the break, they dry ...

Half-time scores

Many thanks for the welcome and thanks for the dates. I have a list of 23 matches in the English League which fit the description, so I have no doubt there are many more around the Scottish Leagues. Thanks, Alan, for the Clyde-East Fife game. I hope others will also surface!

Half-time scores

Many apologies to those of you who have read a similar thread on another forum, but I was wondering if anyone can add to this list of Scottish league games where eight or more goals have been scored before half-time or where one side has scored seven times before the break. Does anyone have accurate...
