That is very sad news. Dougie Friedman won his first cap for Junior Scotland at the end of the 1977/78 season against Wales and then became a fixture in the side for the next three years  playing in four consecutive seasons. He played in eleven consecutive matches against international opposition. He played in at least one match against non-international opposition making a total of 12 matches.  He was appointed captain for his second international against the Republic of Ireland and went on to captain the team in at least seven matches.  Details of captains are sketchy but on the records we have Dougie captained Junior Scotland more than any other player.  

His international matches were:

England 1980, 1981

Northern Ireland 1978, 1980

Republic of Ireland 1978, 1979, 1980

Wales 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981

Here is another list! 

This shows Junior players who were capped at:

1) Junior level and then went on to be capped at full international level [J/S followed by the Senior clubs played for when winning full caps]

2) both Junior and Amateur level when playing for a Junior club. [J/A]

3) Amateur level when playing for a Junior club. [A]

The players are grouped under their Junior club. Jock Brown appears twice. He won Junior caps whilst at Glenburn Rovers and Shawfield.

As ever, if anyone spots an error, has different information or has a question do please just let me know.
