Re: WORLD CHAMPIONS

One other reason I have seen muted in various sources is the fact that they also defeated Preston North End as well. Thus having beat both the winner and the runners-up of the FA Cup they claimed to have valid title to "Champions of the World".

Re: Partick Thistle v Morton 1896 League Match

Yes, I'm 100% certain the January result was in fact the league match. It just puzzles me why so many sources, including the SPFL themselves, have gone with the April match. Reading the newspapers match reports they all state the January match was a league match and the April match a friendly (or or...

Partick Thistle v Morton 1896 League Match

18th January 1896: - Partick Thistle 4 Morton 1 - Inchview, Glasgow. 18th April 1896: - Partick Thistle 2 Morton 1 - Inchview, Glasgow. This is something that has been bugging me for a while – the result and date of the above league match. Most statistical publications I have come across (the 1980s ...

Re: RSSSF Scotland records - changes

Cheers bluedragon, glad you found that useful. Yes, I did notice the suggestion that William Sellar put forward the idea. Other reports, however, suggested it may have been Walter Arnott the Queen's Park and Scotland captain. It was alleged that this would be Arnott's last season at Queen's Park as ...

Re: RSSSF Scotland records - changes

Not sure if this counts as an unofficial Scotland match, however, on the 21st March 1891 a Scotland International XI played Corinthians at Hampden Park. Queen's Park were due to play Corinthians in their traditional match but the Queen's Park committee, at a meeting on 18th March 1891, took the unpr...

Re: Scottish Football Historical Archive

Thanks for the update, Brian, I fully understand your position and hope that things improve for yourself and family in the very near future.

The point you raised, Alan, as regards possible financial support is a good one. I would also be willing to contribute.

Scottish Football Historical Archive

Has the Scottish-football-historical-archive moved again? The last link I had to the site is scottish-football-historical-archive.co.nf, however it seems that link no longer exists. Does anyone have a new link?

Many thanks.

Highland League Results

Can anyone out there help me find the results of every Highland League match since it began in 1893? The official website only goes back to season 2003/04. I was sure Brian’s SFHA website or the RSSSF website had such an archive but this appears not to be the case. Any help on this will be most appr...

100,000th Top Tier League Goal
