100 Year Old SFL&Hearts Mysteries - Can You Help Solve?

Post by topmab » Sun Feb 11, 2007 9:17 pm

As it says on the tin! Please see the attached article and the many questions raised on the last page. I have had loads of enquiries and some light has been shed on George Robertson and the 1901 Bobby Walker Scotland strip. In particular, I'm seeking answers to the mystery of the 1910 SFL cap.

Can you guys (& gals) please help me out? :?: :?:

I've been working with David Ross and others, we think we have put together the only definitive list of all players to play for the SFL.

See

BW has 14 by our reckoning

1910 game vs EFL

The confusion may lie in that Hearts lost in a replay of the abandonded Cup tie Hibs that same day. Bobby was clearly in the Hearts team. See reports below.

He was initially selected and then withdrawn. Hearts asked for an extension of the cup date this was refused. They may have produced him a 'cap'.
