Yes, these details come from the Evening Times. The Glasgow Herald online archive is missing for July and August 1972.

I have traced another seventeen matches between English and Scottish teams played in that period. These are in the Saturday editions and the reports usually finish at half-time, therefore few second half scorers are given and if subs have been used.
