7th April 1923

Wales 4-1 Scotland at Bangor

Scotland team picked at selection meeting for this game was as follows:
Jamieson(Mugiemoss), Anderson (Lochee Central), Mitchell(Harthill Athletic), Walls (Stirling Emmet), Robertson (Perth Roselea), Dempster (St Ninians Thistle), Gow (Inverkeithing), Hunter (St Monans), Cruickshank (Port Glasgow) Follett (Carluke Rovers), Lindsay (Tranent)

Trainer A Clark (Inverkeithing)

Dont know if this was the team that actually lined up for the game.

According to the Juniors centenary history the game against Ireland was played at Dens Park, Scotland winning 4-0


For the game v England I had Dempster in original line up (as captain), Ford replaced Hunter in the team. Hyslop of Dumbarton was the first choice as travelling? reserve.

Just a note that all the newspapers held on microfilm in Dunfermline library have the goalkeeper who played against England as David Russell of Rosyth Recreation.

My line-ups came from the Birmingham papers, so although the 'England' line-up will be correct there might have been some minor errors with Scotland.

For the game against Wales on the 7th April the Herald has McCormack of Yoker Ath replacing Hunter of St Monans in the team.

Apropos of not much more than location, right-half in the Villa Park game was Billy Findlay of Musselburgh Bruntonians. [Soon to be one of ours...]
