Re: Stamford Bridge Trophy

Shettleston Juniors and Bonnyrigg Rose used to play 'friendlies' for the Merchant's Trophy intermittingly in the 60s and 70s. The last was in June 1979. Does anyone know the history of this?

Re: A victim of 'retain and transfer'

I think Rene Moller was retained by Hearts until 1976 - about 6 years after leaving.

Re: Back in 1963

Was Alistair Dewar not sacked after Hearts beat Celtic 4-1 in 1972 for being too enthusiastic or at least reprimanded or is my memory hazy?

Re: Central Junior League Season 36/37

Re: Celtic's 'Home' Games At Hampden...But Why?

As I recall, there was a safety issue with the Parkhead stand. Celtic also played Arbroath [3-3] at Hampden in the League Cup.

John McFarlane

According to John Litster, there was a John McFarlane who played 16 games and scoring 12 goals in 1968-69 - all before the end of October before he was released to join Airdrie :shock: . I can't find him anywhere else. Can anyone help identify him?
