Missing referees 1980-81

Post by football2011 » Sun May 20, 2018 4:38 pm

I'm compiling a spreadsheet of top flight referees season by season for my own use and I'm missing a few due to lack of information in the Evening Times/Herald/club history websites so can anyone help me? These are the games I'm desperately looking for.

23/8/1980

Partick Thistle v Kilmarnock

1/1/1981

Kilmarnock v Celtic
Morton v St Mirren
Rangers v Partick Thistle

i have looked everywhere for the referees for the 1980/81 matches and cannot find the refs for those 4 games.

every other match i have. i have an excel database of every match in the 1980/81 season, cups, league, europe, internationals even the drybrough cup and anglo scottish cup games. in total around 300 games, missing 7 refs all told, 4 of which are those games, you mentioned and the 3 league cup games.

morton v ayr
st mirren v albion rovers home and away

if you ever get the info let me know.

I think perhaps you might have to source the match programmes for these games, or at least find a collector who has a copy.

Alternatively, find a copy for sale on ebay and send a polite message to the seller, asking them to check the ref.

We have a first answer, Kenny Hope refereed the Morton v St Mirren game as I found a copy of the programme on ebay and sent a message to the seller and he politely answered it to me!

nice one, the other programmes are on sale as well on ebay, see if we cant get a reply from the other sellers as well ;)

incidently the excel database ive ed for the 80/81 season is nearly complete. i have included all top division league matches, league and scottish cup matches involving top division teams, euro matches involving scottish clubs, anglo scottish cup matches and drybrough cup matches, and any international or u-21 matches from that season.

the statistics i have compiled so far read as such

matches 232 refs 225 goalscorers 626 subs 516 goal times 596 cautions 260 dismissals 18

a fairly concise and definitive database, ill post a link to it once its completed
