Re: Early Scotland internationalists - new details

Thanks for that update.

The 1949 touring team was actually Hajduk Split and not the Yugoslav national team, although many sources in Australia lazily labelled them as such.

A proposed match against a combine Forfarshire XI (Brechin, Forfar, Montrose and Arbroath) was scuppered because Admira wanted a £500 guarantee.
Thanks Brian, was that a 2-1 win for Admira?

Belgium v Scotland 21 November 1979

Does anyone have a record of the unused subs for this match? I understand that 5 subs were named on the bench, of which No13 Frank Gray, and No16 Davie Provan came on, but who were No14, 15 and 17?

Re: Official attendance query

Another question. When was the last time Scotland played in front of a home crowd of less than 20,000 for a WC or EC Qualifier? Late 90's during Hampden rebuild?

Re: Scottish Non League Review

Sad to hear this is the last one, nobody willing to take it on?

You've done a fantastic job in those 30 years, incredible to think it's been that long, hopefully someone continues what you started.
