Q John Cass asks: "Is there a footballer who has won an FA Cup winner's medal in both Scotland & England?"

A Yes, far too many to list here. The most recent was Paul Gascoigne (Tottenham, 1991, Rangers 1996). Most recent Scot was Brian McClair (Celtic, 1985, Man Utd, 1994).
Q Back to Gareth Evans for this: "Who was the FIRST player to win both Scottish and English FA Cup winners medals?"

A The first to do so was Henry Campbell who won with Renton in 1888 and Blackburn Rovers in 1890.
Does that help?

If it hand`t been for a biased referee in 1884, all the Queen`s Park players vs. Blackburn would have collected Scottish & English winners` medals that year.
