NUMBERS

A little quirk I`ve noticed and wonder if others have too regarding team line ups. If we ignore for a moment the 2, 2, 6 line up, when all sides lined up 2, 3, 5(and even now the syntax is used when reading out teams!), no.2 was right back, 3 left back, 4 right half, 5 centre half, 6 left half, 7 ou...

Re: Domestic Attendance Records Progression

A game which might, just MIGHT, qualify for this list is Queen`s Park vs. Preston North End the English Cup 1st Round tie @ 2nd Hampden on 30th October 1886. There is no precise figure and all the newspaper reports I`ve seen from the airts and pairts from Dundee to London vary from approximately 12,...

Re: Early Scotland internationalists - new details

Not a new internationalist per se but a reclassification of an 1880s player. John Macdonald was "capped" vs. England in 1886 and is normally assigned to Queen`s Park as his club. Macdonald may have retained his membership there but his only known appearance in black & white hoops that season(1885-86...

Re: Old Line-Ups Required

Queen`s inside right vs. Partick in the Glasgow League game was David Wilson. The print isn`t clear but what it says is "...W.G.Stewart and D.Wilson...". Wilson was the first Queen`s player to score @ current Hampden Park when he netted the game`s only goal vs. Celtic in October 1903. I had a simila...

The sooner the BNA get the Daily Record, North British Daily Mail et al online the better; the West Sussex Bugle for 1864 isn`t much help to me!

Re: CLYDE 1, CELTIC 1

I`ve searched for that one too but all I can find are the Bully Wee scorers - Wallace 2(1 pen.), Fitzsimmons 2, Mills. I think it`s one of these eternally lost. Of all Queen`s Park`s competitive games since 1871, I`ve resigned myself to never finding who played in the black & white hoops in just 9 o...

Re: Double internationalists

Ah, he may have ended as a colonel but was he a colonel when he played? Sir Govan wasn`t Sir Govan during his playing days.

Re: John Jackson - Scotland goalkeeper 1931-1935

Nicknames too can cause confusion to the non native English speaker although, being Scottiash, English often doesn`t come into it. Back in the 1880s, Dumbarton had two Robert Browns and to differentiate between them one was nicknamed Plumber because he was a.....The other, a slight fellow, had the n...

Re: Glasgow Charity Cup

I`m fairly sure Jock Stein looked after the teams in 1965 & 1966 but what his official capacity was I don`t know.
