Thanks for that notification Andy. I have already spoken to Carol-Ann, John-Archie's daughter, obituary filed.

With John-Archie's death, the new boy in our First XI is Eddie Connachan, the third goalkeeper to be in the "team".

The line-up now reads:

Bobby Brown (Rangers) - three caps – 1946/47 : 1951-52: d.o.b. 19/03/1923

Doug Cowie (Dundee) - 20 caps - 1952-53 : 1957-58: d.o.b. 01/05/1926

Jock Aird (Burnley) – four caps – 1953-54: d.o.b. 18/12/1926

Tommy Docherty (Preston NE and Arsenal) - 25 caps - 1951-59: d.o.b. 28/04/1928

Ian McMillan (Airdrieonians and Rangers) – six caps – 1952-61: d.o.b. 18/03/1931

John Grant (Hibernian) – two caps – 1958-59: d.o.b. 16/06/1931

Mike Cullen (Luton Town) – one cap – 1955-56: d.o.b. 03/07/1931

Eric Caldow (Rangers) - 40 caps - 1957-1963: d.o.b. 14/05/1934

Jimmy Millar (Rangers) – 2 caps – 1963: d.o.b. 20/11/1934

Lawrie Leslie (Airdire) – 5 aps – 1960-61: d.o.b. 17/03/1935

Eddie Connachan (Dunfermline Athletic) – 2 caps – 1961-62: d.o.b. 27/08/1935

Purely out of interest, is Eddie Connachan related to Dennis?

I think Dennis is a "Connaghan" with a "g" rather than a "c".

With the death of Eric Caldow on 4 March, while the board was out of commission, the survivors' eleven has taken another hit.

I`m seriously considering withdrawing from this website; this thread is making me feel ancient. Players who I watched when they were quite young are now shuffling off this mortal coil with disturbing rapidity.

The death of Lawrie Leslie this week means we need to find two new replacements for the XI.

Does anyone know where LL died? Most obituaries make no reference, the Herald says in a nursing home, presumably somewhere around London or Kent.

A post on a Millwall forum mentions a care home in Wilmington in Dartford.
