Scoring in consecutive Edinburgh Derbies

Post by Sat31March1928 » Fri Feb 19, 2016 9:33 am

Whilst in hospital recovering from an operation on my broken elbow I had a morphine induced dream that Hibernians had beaten Heart of Mid-Lothian in a replay in the Cup for the first time in 139 years.

While the dosage might have done the job on your elbow I doubt that it will have helped with the result! I hope that you are now on the mend!

Thanks for posting the stats. Jason Cummings joins illustrious company. I had to read up on Jock White although I wasn't disappointed! In what seems typical of that time he was one of four professional footballing brothers and a great goal scorer. I see he went to Margate FC at the end of his career. At that time (I have not got exact dates for Jock) Margate were managed by ex Gunners centre forward, Jack Lambert, and was Arsenal's nursery team with the better players progressing up to the Reserve team. So Jock may have been signed to help the youngsters? In 1935/36 non-league Margate got to the Third Round of the FA Cup defeating Queen's Park Rangers and Crystal Palace before being eliminated by Blackpool.

Those White brothers (John and James) caused me endless frustration when trying to sort out their appearances for Albion Rovers in season 1919/20! Was glad that Jock moved on to Hearts ...

Walkers for Hearts in the 1890s

Worst is where only one plays and is simply called 'Walker'
