  4. Each league covers a specific area. LL clubs don't choose where to go - they drop to a specific league defined accordingly. Dalbeattie, Gretna = SOSL... Caledonian Braves, Cumbernauld, EK = WOSL... rest = EOSL. Suppose if BSCG ever move back to Strathclyde they'd become WOSL too.
  5. Interestingly his 7 caps were at FA Centenary Tournament (4 ties over a week in May) and Kenya Uhuru Cup (3 ties over a week in December). Didn't play in regular Amateur Home Nations etc.
  6. Some players managed with barely any formal "training"... just jogging/sprints/golf/etc. Over the Christmas holidays I happened on the Aberdeen centenary video from 2003 ('Stand Free': bit of a long haul at 2hrs+ and very weighted to 1980s & 1990s but still a decent watch). Eddie Turnbull discussed taking-over at Pittodrie in 1965 and finding players basically popped in-n-out as they liked. Among his first reforms was giving each player a ball.
  7. If we go back in history it was not unknown for top division players to sign amateur forms and carry on a daytime profession. This persisted even into the 1960s and 1970s... Donald Ford of Hearts was a chartered accountant. Peter Lorimer and Peter Cormack did something similar in their early years with Leeds and Hibs? There was a Scotland Amateurs national team upto 1974.
  8. I've found briefer highlights of Celtic v Liverpool in 1986 and 1989, as well as Rangers v Everton in 1988. You can also find full 1989 game and even shorter version of 1987 and 1989 highlights via simple search. Can't find Coventry v St Mirren footage.
  9. No obligation to move - unless "emergency powers" deployed. Attempts thusfar: 1 Saturday 26th December abandoned 2 Wednesday 30th December postponed 3 Saturday 2nd January postponed 4 Monday 4th January 5 Wednesday 6th January 6 Saturday 9th January (date of next round) 7 Monday/Tuesday 11th/12th January 8 Wednesday 13th January 9 Monday/Tuesday 18th/19th January etc. etc.
  10. Camelon v Brora off once again tomorrow and makes its 4th attempt on Monday. Although a public holiday it'll be an evening kickoff.

  12. Interesting selection of local derbies tomorrow, though more will likely follow Lochgelly-Lochore in succumbing to cold conditions: Burntisland Shipyard v Glenrothes Easthouses Lily v Preston Athletic Hawick RAU v Eyemouth United Lochgelly Albert P-P Lochore Welfare Luncarty v Kinnoull Oakley United v Newburgh Stirling University EOS v Heriot-Watt University Peebles Rovers = 'odd team'
  13. Derby card tomorrow (with Dalkeith-Arniston preferring to play Tuesday), though Ormiston-Haddington has fallen foul of weather and Leith-Craigroyston is cancelled as park unavailable. Dunipace v Rosyth Edinburgh United v Edinburgh South Leith Athletic C-C Craigroyston Ormiston P-P Haddington Athletic St Andrews United v Kennoway Star Hearts Thornton Hibs v Kirkcaldy & Dysart Tweedmouth Rangers v Coldstream (Tue) Dalkeith Thistle v Arniston Rangers
  14. Newtongrange and Musselburgh landed important wins. Whitehill recorded their first point. Newtongrange Star 3-2 Penicuik Athletic Musselburgh Athletc 4-2 Blackburn United Crossgates Primrose P-P Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts Sauchie P-P Tynecastle Whitehill Welfare 1-1 Dunbar United Musselburgh Athletic P-P Tranent Penicuik P-P Newtongrange New Year derbies in store for coming days, although Crossgates-HofB is already frozen off and Camelon are on cup duty. (Sat) Crossgates Primrose P-P Hill of Beath Hawthorn (Sat) Sauchie v Jeanfield Swifts Blackburn = 'odd team' (Sun) Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts v Dundonald Bluebell (Sun) Linlithgow Rose v Broxburn Athletic (Mon) Tynecastle v Lothian Thistle HV (Tue) Whitehill Welfare v Dunbar United
