John Lambie - youngest internationalist

I've just written about a mistake in the record books, as John Lambie did not play for Scotland aged 17 after all:

Quite how this has escaped attention for over 100 years is beyond me, but there you go. It shows the value of checking everything.

It does raise a question, though: who captained Scotland against Ireland in 1886? After JJ Gow pulled out, not one news report mentions who took his place as captain.
