Scottish Football League Results

Post by Sat31March1928 » Thu Oct 22, 2015 10:58 pm

I've been updating my list of Scottish Football League Results.

I've checked the results against the newspaper reports of the day.

I've discovered 3 date errors

Wed 30 Nov 1955 Danish Football Combination 0 SFL 4 -->Tue 11 Oct 1955 Danish Football Combination 0 SFL 4
Fri 05 Sep 1969 SFL 5 Irish League 2 -->Wed 19 Nov 1969 SFL 5 Irish League 2
Thu 18 Mar 1971 SFL 0 English Football League 1 --> Wed 17 Mar 1971 SFL 0 English Football League 1

I discovered a second half substitute in Sat 22 Feb 1919 English Football League 3 SFL 1

James Richardson replacing Peter Nellies (injured in first half) for the 2nd half.

I bet Peter Nellies didn't react like Kris Commons did last night when replaced by Jimmy Richardson!

Recall this being mentioned before but the opposition in 1955 was actually Staevnet (the Copenhagen FA XI; also played in the Fairs Cup) and not the Danish Combination or Danish League as carried in the British press.

I also read that some Hibs players missed their European Cup return v Rot Weiss Essen the next night, due to flight delays.

I read the same article last week, very interesting stuff:

They made it back from Denmark fine, but fog in London (probably Croydon) prevented their getting up the road in time for kick-off. Lawrie Reilly, most notably, missed the return fixture at Easter ROad (1-1 for a 5-1 aggregate Hibs win.)
