Scotland v Wales Under-15 Schoolboy International 9 May 1959

Post by bluedragon » Sun Jun 14, 2020 12:05 pm

I am looking for some help please. It concerns the Scotland v Wales Under-15 Schoolboy International played in Dundee on 9 May 1959. Between them the Evening Times and Glasgow Herald provide the key match details with one exception. The name of the Welsh left back from Swansea is smudged in the newsprint. Has anyone another source to give me the missing name?

Thank you.

The previous Wales game had Phillips (Swansea) alongside Rodriguez (Cardiff) at full back.

Thank you, Andy. That looks like the same full back partnership in both matches.

Peter Rodrigues always used the anglicised spelling of his name. Long and successful pro career culminating in captaining Southampton to the FA Cup in 1976.

No idea whether his birth certificate says Rodriguez or Rodrigues. Perhaps the z comes from a copy taker making an assumption?

You are right, definitely Rodrigues.
