Re: Scottish Junior Internationals 1937 and 1938

Litster has a Robertson being with Forfar from 1937-38, no other details though apart from being noted as a RB, the Robertson we have is a RH, close enough??? In any case, Robertson is omitted from the Courier's line-up so we can take it that Bingham did indeed replace Robertson from the original se...

Re: QUEEN`S PARK

I missed the 4 page spread in yesterday's Daily Rag, was it as in depth as their usual reporting?

Just noticed this was my 1000th post. Maybe that'll be in the Rag tomorrow!

Re: Definition of 'scrimmage'

Re: Definition of 'scrimmage'

I was always under the impression that a scrimmage was basically a free for all in an effort to get the ball away from the goal. I've seen reports that mention of scrimmages taking place with the end result of the goalkeeper and ball being bundled over the line!

Amateur Internationals

We have virtualy every detail of GB's and England's Trial matches and are working on the other home countries.

We believe the first Scotland Trial was held in Sep 1929 and the last pre war in Feb 1939. I have reports of trials Feb and Mar 1949, and was wondering if there were others after this.
