Chris Dickson - Scottish Youth International

Post by markbfc » Sun Feb 28, 2010 12:21 pm

This would have been around 1990-1992. Does anyone have any details? He was a Brentford youth team player at the time.

The Rothmans annuals for 1991/2 and 1992/3 have Christopher M Dickson listed as a Brentford trainee, but with no other information. He seems to have left before the 1993/4 edition was published

Thanks Steve. He was a trainee between 1990 and 1992 but apparently was a Scottish youth international, which I'm trying to find out more details.

Mark, as far as I know, the only place where Scotland youth international teams were recorded would be the SFA minute books. The press weren't interested and the football annuals didn't cover them either.

Best place to start would be an email to Ross Mathie, the youth team coach, who is still there. (The email format for anyone at the SFA is firstname.surname@scottishfa.co.uk)

Failing that, the staff at the Scottish Football Museum might be able to look him up for you, if you ask nicely.

The Brentford player is presumably the same Christopher Matthew Dickson (b. Plumstead, 28.12.1984) who is presently at loan to Gillingham from Charlton. He has since gone on to represent Ghana at full international level, but not aware of any Scottish connection.

I doubt it. If he'd been capable of playing as a youth international aged between 6-8 I don't think even the SFA would have let him slip through their fingers!
