Junior ??

Postby tribalcolours » Wed Feb 14, 2018 4:19 pm

ok im working on a match archive for the 60/61 season, and ive come across a guy who played and scored for brechin city in a couple of matches that season. his surname is given as junior. ive tried various sources to place the guy, but to no avail, so im wondering if this infact is a trialist or a junior player who was unsigned and played as a trialist? the name junior seems a bit brazilian to be playing the lower reaches of scottish football :shock:

Yes he will be a trialist - trialist, junior, a.n. other were all used more or less interchangeably

I have also seen Black and Brown used as names for trialists

Newman was normally another name for a trialist.

thanks, only problem i have with newman is that he appeared in several matches for forfar over multiple seasons,
from what i know he played 28 games in 1958, 15 in 1959, and 8 in 1960, that seems to be a lot for a trialist.

According to here http://www.neilbrown.newcastlefans.com/ ... orfar.html Forfar Athletic did not have a player called Newman.
So the possibility of "Newman" being several "trialsts" appearing over the season(s) is more likely.
Only way to confirm is by going through the local newspapers and see if there is any mention of who "Newman" was.
