NEW BOOK - FORGOTTEN GLORIES

Post by BMCCOLL » Fri Oct 09, 2015 4:33 pm

British Amateur International Football 1901-1974

Starting off as a review of George Campbell's seminal Scottish Amateur Internationals work, this was expanded to cover the entire UK. As such it lists 99.9% of every line-up and goalscorer, there were unfortunately six Great Britain games that we could not find all the details for. The book also lists virtually all opposition details as well as dates, venues, many attendances, referees, half-times and a great many goal times. Extensively illustrated, this is a must-have for any soccer bookshelf. Copies can be obtained from LULU.COM for just £18 plus P&P via debit card or Paypal.

Damn! I could have saved £2.99. Never mind I am sure that the book will be well worth paying the postage Brian :roll:

The book has been selling very well, thanks everyone. LULU has those offers come through every now and then (they only last 2 or 3 days) but I'll keep you posted.

I've just had full details, via an Austrian contact, of the Austria side which played Scotland in the UEFA Amateur final of 1967.

Austria:
Johann Schorn (SC Eisenstadt)
Rudolf Babler (SCG Brunn)
Günter Scheffl (Elektra)
Gerhard Zacsek (SC Marchegg)
Walter Suttner (SC Eisenstadt)
Ferdinand Milanovich (SK Donau)
Günther Komanovits (SC Eisenstadt)
Bernd Langgruber (Salzburger AK 1914)
Otto Jaros (Elekra)
Josef Hickersberger (Austria Wien)
Johann Promintzer (UFC Frauenkirchen)

According to Austrian papers, the Scotland goal by Hopper was an equaliser in 38 minutes, just before Hickersberger scored in 40.

Referee was Helmut Fritz (West Germany)

Is that download still available on the new site?

Thanks Andy. I've sent you an email with the file attached.

I'm in the process of revamping the site but this will take some time. Some files are missing from the site due to the switchover, so if there are any pages missing that you want to see, drop me a line and I'll get it online ASAP.
