Re: Clydebank in Dunbartonshire Cup 1920/21

Alan, I dug this out from my notes Round robin, each club played the other once only with the top two meeting in a 'final'. I'm not sure if the Renton/Dumbarton Harp match was played but if Renton had won it they would have been in with a chance of being in the final. Clydebank - Dumbarton 2-2 Clyde...

Re: Junior International records

Version 3 is now available for general download. Because of some hosting issues I have created a new subsiduary site that will hopefully eventually contain as much Junior content as possible and this will host the Database.

Re: Topscorers in Division Two

John Litster's disc has some info on Div 2 scorers but is very, VERY incomplete. I understand that an update is planned for publication in about two years time, but my guess is to research this list in the meantime if you need the info pronto.

Hearts HAVE previously played 4 games at Murrayfield, so this DOES give them a massive advantage over Celtic.

Re: A.McGill - Albion Rovers

According to Litster his first name was Allan and was an outside or inside left.

He signed from Blantyre Hibernian on 19 Jan 1903 and his last entry is for 1907-08. From 1905-06 til then he was on the League's OTT list.

Re: Old League Cup criteria

From memory Tom Cockburn wrote this as well as the Scottish Cup Variations articles. He also did excellent pieces on the 'Alphabet' divisions and Reserve league football. I was just thinking about the SFH the other day and it's incredible that it has been going since 1982. I got my first copy of it ...
