Auckland XI 0-4 Scotland XI 8 June 1967

Post by Gabe » Mon Jan 25, 2021 2:59 pm

Hi,

Bluedragon and I are completing the details regarding Scotland's unofficial matches. Most of them are already available on the RSSSF website. As for the 1967 tour match against "AUCKLAND XI" we don't have the names of several players’ clubs of the that team. The match was played on June 8, 1967 in Auckland. Here is the line-up with the names of the New Zealand players and the names of the clubs we found.

AUCKLAND XI:
Arthur Stroud, William Hunter (Eden), Gary T Lake (Ponsonby), Paul Rennell (Eastern Suburbs), Thomas McNab (Eastern Suburbs), David Salt, John Legg (Eastern Suburbs), John Houghton, George York, Mark Burgess, Ray Mears (Eastern Suburbs).

Can anyone help us find the missing club names?
Maybe Rob R. could do it?

Thanks a lot.

I have this game played @ Newmarket Park. Do you have the NZU23 team from 5/6/67? THAT game was played on the Lower Hutt Recreation Ground.

Thank you LEATHERSTOCKING.
Newmarket Park was the ground.

Yes, we have also the full details of the match you mentioned vs New Zealand U-23.
You are correct: the ground was Lower Hutt Recreation.

The Auckland team is above, in the first post.

If you mean the NZ U23 team, it is on RSSSF: http://www.rsssf.com/tabless/scot-unoff-intres1967.html

Stroud and Burgess both played against Manchester United the same year according to this link below. are there any Manchester United historical sites that would have opponents details?

A quick google search suggests Arthur Strouds son Alan runs a pub in Christchurch, facebook page here
