Soccer Star Magazine

Post by Alan Brown » Sat Apr 27, 2013 9:59 pm

Does anyone have access to any issues of the above mentioned magazine which ran between 1952 and 1970? I am on the lookout for a few Third Lanark line ups from the 1960s, and I know that it was a good source for match stats from that era.

I have most SS magazines from 1961 to December 64 with quite a few after that date, which line ups do you require ?

Half time was 3-1 to Thirds, fuill time was 5-2.

Thirds line-up: Robertson, McGillvray and Cunningham; Reilly, McCormick and Baird; Goodfellow, Spence, Grant, Gray and McInnes.

Full report is in the Herald.

Many thanks for the info Shawfield Boy.
I was looking for the first match (0-0) on 4th December, and I have the details
from the Herald now. I also have details of the first round match v Queen's Park
from the Herald which I must have overlooked!

I don't have half-times or line-ups but I do have all Thirds Summer Cup goalscorers (and opposition) if you want them.

Thanks for the offer David, but I have the goalscorers.
The Daily Record has most of the line ups that I am missing, but a lot of
Them are very difficult to read, so I was just looking for another source.

The only Glasgow cup ties I have seen in SS is the Finals and that wasnt consistantly every year either. The Midweek results service for 1961 finished at the 8th of May so no lineups for the French game.. 29/4/63 V Dundee United Robertson , McGillveray, Davis, Spence, Little, Lewis,Goodfellow, McMorran, Cunningham , Baird & Curran. HT 0-0. 13/5/63 V Dundee . Robertson McGillveray, Davis, Spence, Little ,Baird, Bryce , Goodfellow, Stenhouse, McMorran & Curran. HT 0-0. 6/5/64 V Partick Th. Mitchell, Connell, Davis, Little, McCormack,Geddes, Graham, Jackson, Murray, McMorran & McLeod. HT 2-1 to Thirds. There ends the coverage of the Summer Cup for the rest of the off season results. The one edition I have in May 1965 only gives the first leg of the Final between Motherwell and Dundee United, still I hope what I have given you is of some use. Cheers.

There was a mistake in my initial reply. The correct half time score was Third Lanark 3-0 Dunfermline Athletic
