Does anyone have the dates of the two matches played by these two countries, which were part of the European Nations Cup? Netherlands won at home 3-0, and Scotland won at home 1-0. I'm also missing the venues.

Not a complete line-up

Apart from Wilson and Hopper: Judge (Hunter), Hamill (Hay), Whitehead, Mackay, Guild (East Fife) 9 or 10 players in the starting line-up played for Queens Park

My notes say:

Scotland team for the away leg was:

G Wilson, T Barr, A Sheridan, N Hopper, A Guild, D Stewart, J Judge, P Hamill, I Whitehead, M Mackay, D Watkins. Sub E Hunter (all Q Park, except Guild - East Fife)

For the home leg:

R Purvis (Edinburgh Uni), J Hastie (Glasgow Uni), A Sheridan (QP), I Robertson (QP), W Currie (Albion Rov), D Stewart (QP), J Cormack (Hearts), P Hamill (QP), M Mackay (QP), E Carruthers (Hearts), I Hume (QP). Sub T Barr (QP).

Not sure what newspaper I would have taken these from.

There seems to be one substitution missing from the first line-up.

The Glasgow Herald missed a Dutch substitution in the second leg: Rene van de Kerkhof (MULO at that time) badly injured his knee, he was replaced by Tip (SC Enschede)
