  1. Clyde hosted Dundee at Celtic Park in February 1915 too. Most of our home fixtures from the end of October were held there due to a fire damaging the stand at Shawfield. Ibrox, Firhill and Hampden were also used if Celtic had a home game.
  2. I don't think he kept too well and was unable to attend both the 1955 and 1958 Cup finals; the team bus stopped for a few seconds outside his flat in Bridgeton on the way back from Hampden with the trophy so he could see it from his window in '55, then in '58 they went one better, with Harry Haddock taking the cup into his living room so he could hold it.
  3. Clyde players and directors before flying to London in 1955 to beat Arsenal in a friendly at Highbury.
  4. Clyde had two David Thomson's on their books in the late 50s and early 60s. One was a goalkeeper and the other an inside forward, who played together a few times.
  5. I'm missing a fair few dates of birth particularly in the 19th and early 20th century but would be shocked if we've ever fielded anyone older. We lined up with three centre-backs tonight, Rumsby in the middle of Howie and McNiff. Cuddihy and Allison as wing backs. McStay as a holding midfielder and Love, Wallace and Johnston all inter changing and supporting Smith. Lyon came on for Cuddihy a few minutes before the break and Lamont for Wallace at HT. Celtic were fit and very quick coming forward but our defending in and around the box was better then what it has been recently. They lacked a cutting edge but their build up play and passing was good. After getting the second we sat back a bit and it became a 541. They started to get more space in the wide areas as the game progressed but Allison did well for the most part aided by Love (bar an obvious push for their penalty), until they began to tire. Smith was isolated for most of the second half but put in a good shift and was unlucky not to score twice. McStay more like his old self. McGee let an early cross slip through his hands but was otherwise solid, and made a couple of really good saves near the end. Lennon then strolled through the last few minutes. A decent workout overall.
  6. Rules on the Glasgow FA website for this season say there must be at least 6 recognised first team players fielded. Clyde rested David Mitchell, Ray Grant and David Goodwillie. Three others were injured (and I imagine they would have played if fit) and Alex Petkov played for Hearts Reserves earlier today. The rest of the squad was used tonight, with Danny Lennon listing himself as a sub too. Our youth teams are community teams who play in SYFA leagues as opposed to pro-youth/club academy, I assume they'll be on different registrations to SPFL so unsure if that'll have any impact on whether they are used or not. For Clyde anyway I think it'll be a fairly strong side being sent out.
  7. Looks like this will be back at first-team level (well, sort of) for the first time since the 1988-89 season, much to the delight of HibeeJibee I'm sure. Celtic and Rangers will field colt teams (under-21s with 2 overage players). Clyde, Partick Thistle and Queen's Park to play a minimum of 6 recognised first team players. Two trialists permitted too. Round robin home and away format with top two teams in the table contesting the final in April. Admission prices set at £5/£3. Tue 20th August Clyde 3-1 Celtic Colts (Love, Howie, Welsh OG; Henderson) Tue 27th August Rangers Colts 0-2 Partick Thistle (Mansell, Jones) Tue 1st October Partick Thistle 2-1 Queens Park (Mansell, de Vita; Thomson) Tue 3rd December Partick Thistle 9-1 Clyde (Jones, de Vita x2, Galasso x2, Austin, O'Ware, Niang, Cameron; Malcolm) Wed 11th December Queens Park 0-2 Celtic Colts (Burt, Wylie) Tue 17th December Celtic Colts 1-1 Partick Thistle (Burt; Niang) Clyde 1-1 Queens Park (McNeil; Moore) Tue 21st January Celtic Colts 4-1 Clyde (McGrath x2, Dembele, Connell; Johnston) Partick Thistle 1-2 Rangers Colts (Mansell; McPake x2) Tue 28th January Rangers Colts 3-2 Clyde (Mebude, Maxwell, Balde; Smith, McStay) Tue 4th February Rangers Colts 1-1 Celtic Colts (Dickson; Connell) Wed 5th February Queens Park 1-1 Partick Thistle (Foy; Barjonas) Tue 18th February Clyde 3-1 Partick Thistle (McNiff, Love, Smith; Cameron) Tue 3rd March Celtic Colts 3-0 Queens Park (Welsh, McGrath, Burt) Tue 17th March Rangers Colts v Queen's Park Tue 7th April Clyde v Rangers Colts TBA Celtic Colts v Rangers Colts Partick Thistle v Celtic Colts Queens Park v Clyde Queens Park v Rangers Colts Final (Tue 7th/Wed 8th April)
  8. Signed on 30th December 1911 from Newton Stewart. John Litster's stats give him 2 appearances and no goals scored, I can only confirm one appearance, against Hibs on 17/02/1912. The only games that season I don't have lineups for are Hamilton on 1st and Celtic on 2nd January 1912 so may well have appeared in one of them. Seemed to leave at the end of the 1911/12 season but no further details of who he went to next.
  9. Pat Boyle needed the physio on after picking up an innocuous knock yesterday, I take it he's a courageous hero in your book? Did Dunlop show passion for the Peterhead shirt when he made a ridiculous lunge on Goodwillie? And Goodwillie must not be playing for the Clyde shirt as he decided not to receive treatment after it? Can't remember the Cowdenbeath physio coming on last week, I suppose you have all their players down as cowards too. At Hampden I can only recall the QP physio coming on to attend to a player who had done his hamstring in, funnily enough he injured himself without putting a tackle in or challenging for the ball.
  10. Aye, nothing says playing for the shirt more than, er...going down and needing the physio to come on.
  11. Gus clearly shat it at the prospect of being shown up by Mr Lennon at Hampden again.
  12. The 6 Glasgow teams all played in the First Division numerous times pre-WWII and in 1946-47, 1947-48 and 1957-58.
  13. Nobody from Clyde or Berwick. It seems the players from the 8 small clubs are petty, jealous and bitter little men.
  14. 7 league wins in a row between December 2003 and February 2004.
