Re: Record attendance oddities

The Shire v St Johnstone Cup tie in 1968/9 got an unexpectedly large crowd as it was one of the few games played that day. Falkirk had no game.

I was chatting to a neighbour recently - a Dunfermline fan - and he was at the game, the Pars tie at Aberdeen having been called off the previous day.

Re: Crowd query

Dumbarton gave loads of home crowds as 4000 that season. 7 League games, against Clyde, Dunfermline, Aberdeen, Ayr, Partick, Hearts and Hibs all reported a crowd of 4000.

In reality these varied from 2852 v Hibs to 4093 v Partick. I don't have an accurate figure for the Clach game.

There are two comparatively recent examples of ties being reversed to the opponents ground. Meadowbank Thistle v Hibernian in the Scottish Cup was played at Easter Road in 1978/9. I know as I was there. No idea what the financial arrangements were. The following year they were drawn together again a...

The match I was at was on June 11th 1977 in Holyrood Park. The programme billed it as Scotland Miners v England Miners. Team lists were made up mainly of East Juniors and Northern League players.

Re: New Alloa Athletic Book

There isn't any. It covers 1921 onwards.

If people are looking for a comprehensive statistical history then don't buy it. Results are complete but teams / appearances info is patchy.

if they want some stats and plenty of anecdotes then it is just the thing.
