Highland League - 1990s player appearances

Post by Ben04uk » Mon Dec 28, 2020 2:33 pm

I am interested in obtaining league appearances and goalscorers for each individual season for players who played in the Highland League and went on to player in the Scottish League. I provide a list of players below I am interested in.

Programmes for Scottish Non League games during this period appear to be very rare, let alone the last home game of the season whuch might give me the information I require. I am not aware of any books published by the clubs which may contain this information (I presume the book "Ross County: From Highland League to Hampden" does not contain any stats).

Does anyone hold this information or know someone who might?

Gary Farquhar - Brora Rangers - 1993 and earlier
David Ross - Brora Rangers - 1994 and earlier
Stuart Golabek - Clachnacuddin - 1994 and earlier
Mark McCulloch - Clachnacuddin - 1993 and earlier
Duncan Shearer - Clachnacuddin - 1982 and earlier
Steven MacDonald - Forres Mechanics - 1996 and earlier
Michael Sanderson - Forres Mechanics - 1995 and later
Scott Clark - Fraserburgh - 1996 and earlier
Marino Keith - Fraserburgh - 1994 and earlier
Russell McBride - Fraserburgh - 1996 and earlier
Ian Murray - Fraserburgh - 1996 and earlier
Scott Murray - Fraserburgh - 1993 and earlier
Brian Thomson - Huntly - 1991-1994; Peterhead 1989; Fraserburgh 1986 and earlier
Marco De Barros - Huntly 1995 and earlier and 1996
Craig Yeats - Huntly - 1987-1991 and Keith 1994 and later
Hamish French - Keith - 1986 and earlier
Gary Clark - Lossiemouth 1996 and earlier
Mike McKenzie - Lossiemouth 1996 and earlier
Mark McRitchie - Caledonian 1993 and earlier; Lossiemouth 1995 and later
Ivor Pirie - Lossiemouth 1996 and earlier
Iain Stewart - Lossiemouth 1994 and earlier
Scott Brown - Rothes 1989; Keith 1992 and later
Steven King - Rothes 1992 and later
Scott Paterson - Cove Rangers 1991 and earlier
Mark Perry - Cove Rangers 1987 and earlier
William Furphy - Elgin City 1993
Craig Hinchcliffe - Elgin City 1992-1994
Iain MacArthur - Elgin City 1994 and earlier
Michael Teasdale - Elgin City 1992 and earlier
Richard Livingstone - Peterhead 1995 and 1996
Martin Pirie - Peterhead 1996 and earlier
Andy Smith (22.11.68) - Peterhead 1989 and earlier
Billy Ferries - Ross County 1993 and earlier
Brian Grant - Ross County 1993 and earlier
David Mackay - Ross County 1993 and earlier
Barry Wilson - Ross County 1991 and earlier; and 1993
Jim Calder - Caledonian / Inverness Thistle 1993 and earlier
Charlie Christie - Caledonian / Inverness Thistle 1993 and earlier
Lloyd Haddow - Caledonian / Inverness Thistle 1990
Allan Smart - Caledonian / Inverness Thistle 1993 and earlier

Finally, does anyone know the record transfer fees paid by Highland League clubs (old and present)? I am particularly looking for Peterhead's record transfer fee paid as at July 2000.

Hopefully someone can help!

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

You are correct that the Ross County book doesn't have any detailed stats, and nor do any of the other Highland League histories.

I'm afraid I can't think of any resource that would have this info from pre-internet days, other than trawling through local newspapers.

However, there was a weekly magazine/newspaper called Highland Football and Sport in the 1990s, which might be a best starting point if you can find it in a library. Sometimes copies come up for sale on ebay.

This website should have the Ross County info you need.

Many thanks for the responses. That is certainly an excellent Ross County website and I shall look out for those magazines.

What year did the Scottish Highland Football League Diary start and does that contain any stats on player appearances, etc?

Does the book "Highland Hundred - The History of the Highland Football League 1893 - 1993" contain any player information, i.e. appearances, goalscorers, etc?

These websites have a lot of statistical information for their own clubs - the Nairn County one isn't fully complete yet.

Fraserburgh have an excellent Excel spreadsheet on their official website setting out team line-ups and goalscorers for every season.
