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...

I've already received my set of Cowdenbeath histories, and would just like to say that David has done a magnificent job. They are entertaining, well designed and a joy to read. Highly recommended!

Re: Three penalties

Another one to add to the list of penalty hat-tricks: Finlay Speedie scored three for Dumbarton against Ayr United on 18 November 1911. It was a Scottish Qualifying Cup semi-final.

Somewhat unusually, Speedie wrote the match report in Monday's Scottish Referee, describing his own feat.

Re: DUNBLANE ROVERS

I think these are also first team friendlies:

23 Jan 1897, QP 4 Dunblane 0
26 April 1902, Dunblane 2 QP 1

and possibly
13 May 1899, Dunblane 2 QP 2
