Re: Willie Maley of Celtic (and Partick Thistle and Third La

I can confirm that the Maley brothers played for Third Lanark in season 1887/88. William played both games against Cowlairs in the Scottish Cup and Tom and Willie played against Rangers in the Glasgow Cup in the same season.

Re: McLaughlan of Celtic 1891/92

I have been digging a bit deeper on this one. In John Litster's pre-war disc there is a J.McLaughland (left back) that played in the 1890/91 junior cup final for Chryston Athletic v Vale of Clyde. Can anyone provide a date for this game? It could be the same player.

Re: McLaughlan of Celtic 1891/92

Thanks Forrest, I have passed on the details. I have advised him to email the scottish football museum as they may have an entry for McLaughlan in the 1893 players registers.
Thanks again.

Apologies for site being down

As you may have noticed the site has been down for a few days. This was due to some nice people clogging up the bandwidth which meant that the bandwidth limit was reached. Apologies.

Kilmarnock v Third Lanark 13/02/1897

I am missing the Thirds line-up for the above mentioned Scottish Cup game. The Herald and Scotsman have match reports, but no further details. As usual any help is much appreciated.

Re: Online Sources

I am having mixed results with Find my Past through the NLS. It seems to be allowing me to access their records ok, but not the BNA. I will try what you said and login to their website first to see if that makes any difference. Thanks for letting us all know about it Andy.

Re: Bob Laird, Third Lanark

Sorry to hear that. I didn't know Bob personally, but I did have some email contact with him a few months ago when he bought a copy of my World War One book. He was really impressed with the Thirds content.

Re: Alex Goldie Third Lanark 1915/16

Hi Douglas, I don't think this is the same Alex Goldie. His debut for Thirds was on 8th January 1916 at home to Dundee and the Daily Record match reports has the following "Their latest recruit, Goldie, a slim youth from Stevenston United, accepted a pass from McLean, and after travelling a short di...

Re: 3rd LANARK vs. CLYDE

Strangely enough, that's the one line-up of Thirds that I was missing from season 1943/44! Would the Dundee Evening Telegraph happen to have the Thirds scorers and the half time Craig? I can't find a match report of it in the Herald or Scotsman.
