Additions to the online British Newspaper Archive this week include a good number of issues of "Athletic News" covering the years 1910 to 1911; 1922 to 1926 & 1930. Some very decent coverage of Scottish football.

National Library of Scotland have just added findmypast to their free online resources, see https://auth.nls.uk/eresources/browse/title/F

I haven't explored fully yet but this could be incredibly helpful, especially as it includes BNA access.

Alas, the BNA can only be navigated as normal, and not viewed by page...

Why can't I view this record?

National Library of Scotland provides free access to a number of findmypast's historical records, but unfortunately this collection isn't included.

Create your own findmypast account to view this record or sign in with an existing account.

I tried accessing via NLS, however it appears the info available is very limited and looks to be a taster for anyone wanting to create an account with FMP, although I'd be delighted to be shown otherwise!

I must be having a better experience that you guys, as I can get into the BNA this way - not to mention the 1939 Register and the full set of World records.

I think the answer is that, as well as entering the site via your NLS log-in, you also have to register with Findmypast. Just registering with them is free, you don't need to commit to anything. In my case, I have had a sub in the past, so I just used the same log-in details.

I noticed that the URL for NLS searches always starts with http://search.findmypast.co.uk.connect.nls.uk/

However, sometimes the 'connect.nls.uk' bit drops off, and it reverts to normal findmypast and at this point of course the site demands a subscription. So you have to go back to the NLS home page. I guess this is just a glitch in the system rather than an obligation to purchase.

Hope that helps.

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.
