Re: When did Scottish football captains start wearing armbands?

If you do a search on BNA, you get some surprising results. The earliest mention is of Billy Bremner wearing one at Leeds United in 1972, but it only seems to have come into wider use in the 1980s, particularly in national teams. There are not many Scottish papers in later years, but the first menti...

Re: RSSSF Scotland records - changes

Here are a few comments and additional matches, which may not meet your criteria: 3.10.1891 the opposition should really be described as Canadian-American XI, as you make clear in the footnotes. 28.5.1929 v Norway - was an East Norwegian select. As you will know the 'official' match on that tour was...

Re: Central League tables

To save time ( I would have to find the books, re-scan them and upload them) just do a google image search - they are still online.

Re: Piet Odijk

Are you sure that is his correct name? I can't see him in Dutch international records.

See https://www.voetbalstats.nl/alfanedxi.php for a list of all internationalists, inc all birth dates and most death dates.

How to register for the site

I have occasional messages from people saying that they are unable to register as a new member. The stumbling block is often when it comes to this question: All users posts on this site appear in blue except one. Which name is the odd one out? This question is a means of preventing automated form su...

Re: Official attendance query

This just opens a big can of worms, eg Wembley was not formally in London until 1965. There are probably others.

Re: OBSCURE?!

Well, the report in the Falkirk Herald describes the junior XI and it shouldn't be too difficult to work out the team.

The 64th Highland Division Signal Company appear to be based in Coupar Angus at the time.

Re: Opening of Floodlights

Thanks very much. I noticed a suggestion on another forum that the bad winter of 1962-63 may have scupperred Dundee United's plans for a formal opening. On the topic of programmes - I have copies of: Rangers, Hibs, Hearts, QotS, Celtic, Third Lanark, Raith, Queen's Park, Stirling, Dundee Utd St Joh...
