Ian Lister

Post by bluedragon » Thu Apr 25, 2013 10:46 pm

Ian Lister (Aberdeen, Raith Rovers, Dunfermline Athletic, St Mirren and Berwick Rangers) sadly died in February 2013. On reading several tributes to him his date of birth was consistently given as 1st January 1948, signing for Aberdeen on 4th October 1963 and making his first team debut on 19th October 1963. If that is all correct then his debut would have been made at 15 years 277 days. However, none of the tributes mentions this very young debut. Only John Litster's disk has a different date of birth - 5th September 1946 - that would seem more reasonable. I wonder if anyone can confirm the date of birth?

Yes, John Litster's date is correct.

Strange that even the Aberdeen and Dunfermline club websites get the date wrong. And of course this in turn has been picked up by all sorts of other sites, including Wikipedia.
