England v Scotland juvenile international 1934-35

Post by ScottishFA » Sun Aug 02, 2020 9:35 am

I've been sent this query by Fraser Donald. Can anyone help?

My late father played for Scotland in the Juvenile International at Old Trafford in the 1934-35 season. I have his International Cap which is Dark Blue Velvet with white silk tassel and 1934-35 embroidered on it.

I am looking for a match report because I lost the newspaper cutting and his shirt when he moved.

He played for Hamiltonhill Social and they won many trophies in that season.

Any information would be most welcomed.

Good luck with finding a newspaper match report.

This was a Scottish Secondary Juvenile Football Association international played on Monday 22 April 1935 (Easter Monday) at Old Trafford, Manchester.

The newspapers give the result as England 3 Scotland 0 but in another thread the Association of Scottish Youth Football Clubs 1995/96 handbook gives it as 4-1 to England.

The Scottish team as given in the newspapers was:

T Peacock (Coates Juveniles), J Wallace (Craig-Mer), H Orr (Winchburgh Albion), R Burnett (Gala Town Sports Club), J Mitchell (Tweed Hill), J Macdonald (Hamiltonhill Social), J Smith (Cockenzie Star), J Forbes (Edinburgh Ashton), J Hunter (Vale of Teith), R M’Crysdale (Glenburn), W Tate (Campsie Thistle).
