Re: CRYSTAL PALACE

You`re absolutely correct, the Cystal Palace book is an absolute gem and a snip @ £1.48 from an online second hand bookseller. I`d advise everyone to get a copy. Queen`s Park, of course, made an additional appearance @ the Palace - newspaper headline should have read "QUEEN`S GO TO THE PALACE"*, tee...

Re: CRYSTAL PALACE

Thank you both for the very interesting posts. I`ve sent off to a book website for the book for just over a pound. Queen`s Park played Corinthians seven times @ the Crystal Palace grounds, the first a 2-1 home win on 26th February 1923 and the last a 4-2 Spiders win on 9th April 1932. In all, Queen`...

CRYSTAL PALACE

Can anyone help as to when the Crystal Palace grounds including the football field in Sydenham stopped being used for football? The Crystal Palace itself I know burned down in 1936; my parents lived in New Eltham at the time & watched the sky lit by the flames. I guess that concluded the Sydenham si...

Re: MINOR INTERNATIONALS

Hearty thank you for theseTribacolour! I I have the Dublin attendance as 21,360 so it might be dyslexia kicking in: I have the date as 28/4/1940. Just needed to know Gilmour`s opponents so full team not so important. I`m only too well aware that Gilmour is the last Spiders to tug a blue jersey over ...

MINOR INTERNATIONALS

Can anyone help with teams, scorers & referee of the Eire XI vs. Scotland match in Dublin in April 1940? Also Queen`s Park`s Jimmy Gilmour played in a Scottish semi professional international(bit of an oxymoron for an amateur) in the 1980s; can anyone help with this game`s details? Thanking you in a...

Re: Wembley Appearances

Regarding most appearances @ Hampden, it seems a pity to discount Queen`s Park players from a list of "most appearances". John Balfour McAlpine holds the record of competitive games played in front of the classic slopes. He made his 1st XI debut on 31st January 1919 in a 2-0 win over 3rd Lanark and ...
