Bo'ness 1927-28; some help needed

Postby kjell » Mon Dec 19, 2016 12:11 am

Hello,

I have gone through all the match reports for the League matches played by Bo'ness for the 1927-28 season and have some questions and gaps. Hopefully someone can help me get the season completed for the Bo'ness team.

(1) The big question for me is regarding the match played on 2 January, 1928. In the matc reports two different goalkeepers are mentioned - Dempster and Simpson. I cannot find any information about Simpson, so I assume Dempster was the goalie. Can someone confirm this?

(2) I also miss the half-time score vs. Motherwell on 24 March, 1928. Match ended 1-1 and I know Wardrope scored for Bo'ness after 10 minutes. Not any data on the Motherwell goal.

(3) For the match vs. St. Mirren on 21 April, 1928 the Sunday Post match report claim that G. Walker scored the second goal for Bo'ness. I have aonly Andrew Walker for Bo'ness, but St. Mirren had a G. Walker. Was it an own goal by the St. Mirren centre-half, or did A. Walker score for Bo'ness?

I also try to collect the minutes for the goals and miss the following goal-scoring minutes:
15 Oct, 1927 - A Raith Rovers (Martin and Oswald);
22 Oct, 1927 - A Airdrieonians (Hart 2 goals - 25 min and ?? min);
8 Feb, 1928 - H Queen's Park (Martin 2 goals - 75 min and ?? min);
25 Feb, 1928 - H Airdrieonians (Wardrope 2 goals - 15 min. and ?? min);
31 Mar, 1928 - A Celtic (Heeps ?? min.);
21 Apr, 1928 - H St. Mirren (Oswald and Walker).

Last missing issue is the correct initials for a referee. Is A.B. Williamson correct? One match mentioned as A.F. Williamson.

Kind regards and thanks in advance,

Kjell
