Scotland v Scottish League

Post by snazzybear » Wed Aug 29, 2007 3:55 pm

I have a programme for a Scotland v Scottish League match held at Easter Road on 03 Feb 1958. It was billed as a World Cup Trial.

Can anyone tell me how often Scotland have played against the Scottish League, and what were the results?

The game was first played in 1958 to help Scotland prepare for the World Cup finals, and became an annual event for a few years until poor attendances made it redundant.

This is the full sequence of matches:

3.2.58
Scottish League 2, Scotland XI 3 (Easter Road) Prog issued.

16.3.59
Scottish League 6, Scotland XI 5 (Ibrox) No prog.

1.2.60
Scottish League 2, Scotland XI 2 (Ibrox) no prog.

30.1.61
Scottish League 1, Scotland XI 4 (Celtic Park) Prog issued.

5.2.62
Scottish League 2, Scotland XI 2 (Hampden Park) Prog issued.

6.2.63
Scottish League v Scotland XI (Ibrox) Postponed, no prog.

24.2.64
Scottish League 1, Scotland XI 3 (Ibrox) No prog.

And just to complete the picture, there was also the League centenary match:
18.8.90
Scottish League 1, Scotland XI 0 (Hampden Park) Prog issued.
