Friendly vs Canada

Postby Gabe » Fri Mar 10, 2017 10:45 pm

Hi everyone,

waiting for the next friendly at Easter Road, I had a look to the previous matches against Canada and I would like to have your help about the figure of attendance in Edmonton on 16th June 1983.

European football websites have 12,258 but the official website of the Canada FA (Canada Soccer) has 10,240.

Can you help me by your sources?

Thanks a lot.

Alan Davidson’s report in the Evening Times of 17 June 1983 gives a precise attendance of “a disappointing 12,258”. The Calgary Herald of 17 June 1983 also gives 12,258.

Hi,
thank you so much for the attendance.

I ask now for three missing data of the friendlies in 1983.
Football websites have not reliable data, so please can you help me again with the contemporary newspapers?

The missing data are as follows:

12th June 1983 Canada 0 – 2 Scotland in Vancouver:
Canada substitution:
Roe /Connor : minutes ....... ??

16th June 1983 Canada 0 – 3 Scotland in Edmonton:
Canada substitutions:
62’ : in Terry Felix - out ……..??
87’ : in Igor Vrablic - out….....??

Thank you in advance

Gabe,

I have checked the Glasgow Herald and Glasgow Evening Times but there is no detailed information on substitutions even for Scotland. I have also tried several Canadian newspaper titles but there is even less. I will try the Scotsman archive in the next few days but I am not hopeful.

Gabe,

No luck with the two Edinburgh newspapers for the Canadian substitutions I am afraid. However, I did note down the following in case it is of interest.

12 June 1983

Attendance 14,842

For Scotland Charlie Nicholas was substituted after 39 minutes and Gordon Strachan was replaced by Graeme Souness on 70 minutes.
