Re: Stamford Bridge Trophy

The Evening Times match report for the 1951 game says: 'The incentive in this game was the cup presented by Mr Mears, chairman of Chelsea, for annual competition between the clubs.'

Re: BP Youth Cup

Also, I think the other match you were looking for was Keith 1, Stenhousemuir 5, played on Sunday 12 November 2006.

Re: BP Youth Cup

Re: Auckland XI 0-4 Scotland XI 8 June 1967

The Auckland team is above, in the first post.

If you mean the NZ U23 team, it is on RSSSF: http://www.rsssf.com/tabless/scot-unoff-intres1967.html

Re: Missed penalties for Scotland

I've now compiled a long list, mainly by searching through RSSSF - Scotland have been awarded 82 penalties, of which 63 scored and 19 missed/saved (although three of those still resulted in goals scored on the rebound). As for penalties conceded by Scotland, I've found 50 scored but just four missed...

Re: James Penman

He may have been there for a few years. There is a Penman in the Ashfield teams of 1913/14 and 1914/15, according to the club history. However, Robert Penman signed for Motherwell from Ashfield in the summer of 1914 (going straight into the first team). James and Robert Penman were both full backs, ...

Missed penalties for Scotland

While we bask in our perfect record in penalty shoot-outs recently, I was thinking of putting together an all-time list of national team penalty kicks (men's first team only). Those scored are easy enough to find, but those missed can be hidden deep in reports. To save me a bit of time, has anyone d...

Re: 1884 Scottish Cup winners

Thanks for clearing that up. Re Peter McCallum - did you ever resolve the confusion between him and Archie Rowan? I think I am right that, where initials were used, Rowan used the pseudonym AP or A McCallum. They both seem to be active at the same time, eg Aston Villa v QP in the 1884 FA Cup, 'McCal...

1884 Scottish Cup winners

A couple of wee questions about the 1884 Scottish Cup final, when Queen's Park were awarded the trophy after Vale of Leven refused to turn up. 1. Was there an actual trophy presentation? QP played a friendly against Third Lanark on the day of the final, and immediately claimed the trophy, but the SF...

Re: Tommy Younger

Actually, just got the date. He joined in September 1970, when Tom Hart took over the club and invited Tom Younger and Jimmy Kerr onto the board.

Re: Highland League - 1990s player appearances

Hi, and welcome to the forum. You are correct that the Ross County book doesn't have any detailed stats, and nor do any of the other Highland League histories. I'm afraid I can't think of any resource that would have this info from pre-internet days, other than trawling through local newspapers. How...

Scotland captain v England 1939

I was just checking Scotland captains and found a wee anomaly. Scotland captain v England in 1939 is named in most sources as Jimmy Dougal (inc RSSSF, London Hearts, wikipedia). But contemporary reports, and the match programme, say Bobby Baxter. Is it just one of those errors that have been perpetu...
