Thanks for that notification Andy. I have already spoken to Carol-Ann, John-Archie's daughter, obituary filed.

With John-Archie's death, the new boy in our First XI is Eddie Connachan, the third goalkeeper to be in the "team".

The line-up now reads:

Bobby Brown (Rangers) - three caps – 1946/47 : 1951-52: d.o.b. 19/03/1923

Doug Cowie (Dundee) - 20 caps - 1952-53 : 1957-58: d.o.b. 01/05/1926

Jock Aird (Burnley) – four caps – 1953-54: d.o.b. 18/12/1926

Tommy Docherty (Preston NE and Arsenal) - 25 caps - 1951-59: d.o.b. 28/04/1928

Ian McMillan (Airdrieonians and Rangers) – six caps – 1952-61: d.o.b. 18/03/1931

John Grant (Hibernian) – two caps – 1958-59: d.o.b. 16/06/1931

Mike Cullen (Luton Town) – one cap – 1955-56: d.o.b. 03/07/1931

Eric Caldow (Rangers) - 40 caps - 1957-1963: d.o.b. 14/05/1934

Jimmy Millar (Rangers) – 2 caps – 1963: d.o.b. 20/11/1934

Lawrie Leslie (Airdire) – 5 aps – 1960-61: d.o.b. 17/03/1935

Eddie Connachan (Dunfermline Athletic) – 2 caps – 1961-62: d.o.b. 27/08/1935

Purely out of interest, is Eddie Connachan related to Dennis?

I think Dennis is a "Connaghan" with a "g" rather than a "c".
