Edinburgh derby appearances

Post by bungle1979 » Mon Dec 13, 2010 12:56 am

Hi all

Am looking for a list of players with the most appearances in Edinburgh derbies... would someone know of a resource where I could find this please?

Wikipedia (not that I would trust it implicitly anyway!) has a list of top goalscorers for each club but doesn't mention appearances.

Have had a look at the excellent ihibs and londonhearts sites but can't seem to find anything (though it's possible I may have missed it!).

As ever, any help would be much appreciated!

I'm sure Bobby and Davy will be along in a minute to oblige, but if you consult iHibs and London Hearts databases, look up players by most appearances and then by club played (both databases show this) then you will get a pretty good idea of the most frequent derby performers.

Hibs top derby appearances looks like Gordon Smith (38 for Hibs and 4 for Hearts). John Robertson pips Gary Mackay to the Hearts record with 55.

Smith, Gordon 38
Hunter, Gordon 36
McGinlay, Pat 34
Stanton, Pat 32
Turnbull, Eddie 30
Combe, Bobby 29
Ormond, Willie 29
Mitchell, Graham 28
Evans, Gareth 28
Kerr, Peter 28

I would add the rider that this only includes Scottish League, Scottish Cup & Scottish League. Including Wartime. No wilson cup, Edinburgh Shield or other minor cups.

Hi ... thanks all for the replies.

Obviously didn't look hard enough on your respective sites!

Apologies and thanks again.
