Re: Goddard for Ayr United?

No mention of Goddard in any of the ayr united line-ups from my world war one book in seasons 1916/17, 17/18 or 18/19. As Andy says though, there were a few trialists in those seasons.

Re: Central League trophy aka Calder Shield found

We are missing two East stirling teams from season 1919/20.
27/09/19 v Bo'ness
14/4/20 v Alloa athletic

A few of the team line ups have been taken from the newspapers before the game and are just predicted line ups.

Re: Central League trophy aka Calder Shield found

Just came across this thread. What an amazing discovery! Currently researching the central league 1919-1921 and busy collating data. As far as I am aware this is the first attempt at doing this, and there will inevitably be a few missing line ups. Robert Hutchison has been a tremendous help with the...

Re: Stirling Albion book

Jim Thomson had sent an email a few weeks ago asking to reply to his email if I required access to the database of games and players. Not sure if you both replied to that initial email.

Stirling Albion book

I received this book today. I was expecting a book with full match details but there are only goalscorers and appearance totals. However on a more positive note everyone that buys a copy of the book will have access to all information online. Not sure when this will happen though.

Re: Celtic v Third Lanark 08/05/1926

Thanks for the reply. Not sure if there was a daily record printed that day due to the strike but there was a Scotsman, although no line ups in there.
