He was Aberdeen trainer/director/caretaker manger from May 1997. Can somebody please tell me when he left?
Wikipedia says that Keith Burkinshaw left Aberdeen when Alex Miller was appointed manager. David Ross' excellent book "Gaffers" says that Alex Miller was appointed on 21 November 1997.

Re: Scotland captain v England 1939

Thanks Andy. The Scotland selectors chose their team on Monday 10 April 1939 and Bobby Baxter was named as captain at that time. The captain in the previous two games (Wales and Hungary) that season was the experienced Andy Anderson of Hearts but he was not selected for the England game although he ...

Re: Junior International records

Thank you for the latest name. Here is one we are puzzling over! We know Logan, an outside right at Dunaskin Lads, joined Kirkintilloch Rob Roy for the 1921/22 season. He is in early season match reports then disappears. We found a Logan playing at outside left for Solway Star in a Scottish Cup matc...

Re: Scottish FA pre-war tours to North America

Alan Breck (AY Young) of the Evening Times also accompanied the 1939 tour to North America. He took his own film, parts at least were shot in colour, of the tour that covered activities both on and off the field. The film was called “All in the Game”. It appears he was hoping to arrange to get it re...

Another one: Ormiston Primrose - Charles (Charley) Gray

See Dundee Evening Telegraph 12 March 1931, 'The men of Ormiston'. The article also notes that several players were signed from Edinburgh Emmet, who disbanded in 1930 (and had John Gray capped in 1929).
Andy - Thanks for this one as well.

Re: Junior International records

Thanks Andy. These are much appreciated and it is good to get an extra pair of eyes! DAVIE MILLS (MILL) We already had him as a Kilsyth Emmet player capped in 1919 but had not made the Clydebank connection. WILLIE McBURNIE It certainly looks like the same player as the dates tie in and both were cen...

A Fife team mate in that match was Morris Aitken of Dundonald Bluebell. Thank you for the information. Amazingly the perso...

Re: John McFarlane

Very interesting!! I can`t find John and Agnes in 1939 reg. in England. He played for Bath City in 1938/39 season. As he was released by Bath City at the end of the 1938/39 season they could have returned to Scotland before the 1939 national registration in England that I believe was completed in S...

Re: John McFarlane

Sureitsza has just told me that there is a centre half, McFarlane (Cambuslang Rangers), captaining the Glasgow Junior League v Irish Intermediate League on 3 March 1923 and St Johnstone XI on 2 April 1923. That would look to fit in with the other information.

The earliest mention is of Billy Bremner wearing one at Leeds United in 1972,
I seem to remember at around the same time Leeds United tried other kit innovations including numbered sock tags.
