Re: Sandy & Tommy Brown, Glenbuck Cherrypickers

Here's what I have on Tommy Brown; updated since last publication with the now-agreed birth details and the final two sentences culled from recent BNA research: Brown, Thomas b. Muirkirk, Ayrshire, 6th August 1879 Career: Glenbuck Cherrypickers; Aug 1899 FOSSE; Dec 1901 Chesterfield Town; cs 1902 La...

Re: Scottish Rovers

No help with Alex, I'm afraid; but the Crichton at East Stirling in 32/3 was Willie (who'd also figured for them in previous seasons, moved on to Raith Rovers in August 1933, and was back with ES in December 1936).

Re: Jimmy Smith, Thirds, Clyde....

This is not exactly going to clear matters up definitively, but here is the career progression for James D Smith as given in Alex White's 2002 publication The Men Who Made Fulham: Rutherglen Glencairn; 1911 Third Lanark; June 1913 Glentoran; July 1914 Third Lanark; (Army service); March 1919 Clydeba...

Re: Walter Young Falkirk 1901/02

Slight variations to the above from the Find-a-Grave site (Walter Young / Oakwood Cemetery / Vermilion County):

b. 17.12.1882
d. 15.01.1956

Definitely the same guy: his wife Hannah (d.1924) buried in same spot.

Re: More dates of birth and death

Just a bit of coat-tailing on Bristol Rovers' post at the head of this topic; but a remarkable coincidence, I hope you think... I, too, am seeking death/emigration/post-career details for an Archibald Morris Hughes, also Neilston-born, but 15 years earlier, and also a former Arthurlie player. Spooky...

Re: Scores of Scotland XI matches, 1945 and 1954

Just a minor correction to the LCFC line-up v Scotland, quoted earlier in this thread: two subs were indeed used. Peter Shilton, Peter Rodrigues, Richie Norman, Graham Cross, John Sjoberg (Max Dougan), Colin Appleton, Paul Matthews (Alan Tewley), Jimmy Goodfellow, Derek Dougan, Davie Gibson, Jackie ...

Re: John or James Macdonald or McDonald?

Hi Kjell. Please accept that I'd never try to prick a balloon held aloft by someone so clearly committed to proper football research... So there's no malice intended here whatsoever.... But are you absolutely sure the registration doesn't read "Ronald Orr JUNIOR"??????? Again, please forgive if I'm ...

Re: David Black, 1895

Definitely the Blackburn guy.

The 'Blackburn Standard' of 13.04.1895 quotes 'Scottish Sport' in reporting several recent Scottish signings on League forms for Blackburn Rovers; amongst them David Black (ex Dunfermline and Heart of Midlothian).

Re: Robert Copeland McKenzie

Not much help, I'm afraid, but the NIFG site reveals he also played in the NI Amateur fixture v England in 1910 as a Morton player and 1912 as a Queens Park player. There are no other identifying details for him on the site.

Re: WWII Falkirk FC Players

Yes, Willie & Norman were brothers.
Norman (1919-90) was a West Ham defensive stalwart from 1937 to 1951. Another older brother, David (1910-95), had also figured in the line-ups of Ayr, Dundee United, West Ham, Southport and Dumbarton in the 30s.

Re: Scottish Luffs

Just a minor update on this thread, to add to the intrigue of the elusive Gourlay/Gourlays. The Motherwell man was definitely the former Luff: after he'd scored for Well v Ayr FC in the Second Division fixture of December 1898, the opposition queried his eligibility with the Scottish League; and he ...
