Scotland v England Women's Internationals

Post by soccerhistory » Sat Jul 19, 2014 9:05 pm

Looking for help to complete a list of the above. This is what I have so far for the period up to and including 1992 and I would welcome any additional information or corrections:

19.11.1972 (Ravenscraig Park, Greenock) Scotland 2, England 3
23.06.1973 (Nuneaton) England 8, Scotland 0
23.05.1976 (Enfield) England 5, Scotland 1
Date not known (before 1982) (Venue not known): England 2, Scotland 1
03.10.1982 (Dumbarton) Scotland 0, England 4 (UEFA)
22.05.1983 (Leeds) England 2, Scotland 0 (UEFA)
17.03.1985 (Preston) England 4, Scotland 0 (UEFA)
12.10.1986 (Kirkcaldy) Scotland 1, England 3 (UEFA)
30.04.1989 (Venue not known) England 3, Scotland 0
06.03.1990 (Wembley) England 4, Scotland 0
20.04.1991(Venue not known) England 5, Scotland 0
18.04.1992 (Walsall) England 1, Scotland 0 (UEFA)
23.08.1992 (Perth) Scotland 0, England 2 (UEFA)

I make that an unlucky 13 straight losses! Particularly looking for the missing date and venues, but attendances would also be welcomed.

Thanks

I compiled a complete list of all Scotland women's internationals which was published in the Scotland International Programme Guide in 2008. The guide is now out of print but I can send you the relevant document if you PM me your email.

However, it was impossible to be sure about all the details because of poor record-keeping by the Scottish Women's FA and with no/minimal reports in the press all I could go on at times was hearsay.

The list I have for Scotland v England does include one victory in 1977; changes marked to your list in bold:
18.11.1972 (Ravenscraig Park, Greenock) Scotland 2, England 3
23.06.1973 (Nuneaton) England 8, Scotland 0
23.05.1976 (Enfield) England 5, Scotland 1
29.5.1977 (Downfield, Dundee) Scotland 2, England 1
03.10.1982 (Dumbarton) Scotland 0, England 4 (UEFA)
22.05.1983 (Leeds) England 2, Scotland 0 (UEFA)
17.03.1985 (Preston) England 4, Scotland 0 (UEFA)
12.10.1986 (Stark's Park, Kirkcaldy) Scotland 1, England 3 (UEFA)
30.04.1989 (Stark's Park, Kirkcaldy) Scotland 0, England 3
6.5.1990 (St Mirren Park, Paisley) Scotland 0, England 4
12.05.1990 (Wembley) England 4, Scotland 0
20.04.1991(Wycombe) England 5, Scotland 0
18.04.1992 (Walsall) England 1, Scotland 0 (UEFA)
23.08.1992 (McDiarmid Park, Perth) Scotland 0, England 2 (UEFA)
9.3.1997 (Bramall Lane, Sheffield) England 6, Scotland 0
23.8.1997 (Almondvale Stadium, Livingston) Scotland 0, England 4


After that, all games were under the auspices of the SFA so record-keeping became a bit better - but there were still occasional games where administrators lost their notes or didn't keep a record of scorers or substitutes.

And in case anyone else has managed to compile full records, these are the women's international matches with question marks:

x.x.73 Scotland 11, Northern Ireland 1 at Clydebank - was it played, and if so what was the date?
31.5.74 Italy 2, Scotland 1 in Milan - mentioned in some records but not by the Italian FA. Was it played?
x.x.77 Scotland 4, Republic of Ireland 1 at Grangemouth - what was the date?
22.4.79 Scotland v Wales at Downfield, Dundee. Wales FA say they won 2-0, Scotland claim to have won 3-1 - which is correct?
20.9.81 Scotland 3, Republic of Ireland 2 - what was the venue?
x.x.90 Scotland 4, Northern Ireland 1 at Stair Park, Stranraer - what was the date?
7.8.94 Scotland v USA ‘B’ at Broadwood, Cumbernauld - what was the score? (a programme was issued so the game took place)

20.9.81 Scotland 3, Republic of Ireland 2 - what was the venue?

This was Scotland-ICELAND, and the venue was Rugby Park, Kilmarnock.

Thanks very much - obviously a typo in my source material, Ireland for Iceland. The game isn't even mentioned in the press.

It was in the Icelandic press, which reports the game as being played at Dumbarton, and as Iceland's first ever match.
