Amateur Internationals

We have virtualy every detail of GB's and England's Trial matches and are working on the other home countries.

We believe the first Scotland Trial was held in Sep 1929 and the last pre war in Feb 1939. I have reports of trials Feb and Mar 1949, and was wondering if there were others after this.

Re: Scottish Referee on BNA

According to their blurb, they don't add further issues until they have a full year's worth of issues ready, although I reckon that doesn't include missing or damaged copies. New additions (titles and years) over the last 30 days can be viewed at http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/home/latesta...

Re: Scottish Alliance

Nearly three years down the line and I can catagorically state that we can now draw a line under the 1891-92 competition. The last two missing dates are...
17 May 1892 Thistle 7 King's Park 1
24 May 1892 Thistle 1 Morton 3
Both games were played on Tuesdays.

Re: BRAND

He was signed by Motherwell from 'amateur' in 1893 (Litster). He was an inside right, which also ties in.
