Father and Son


Albino Rover

Recommended Posts

As of today, Steve Cadden and Chris Cadden have won league championships with Albion Rovers. Have any other father/son pairings ever won leagues with the same club?

Any other interesting father/son trivia (like the Eidur Gudjohnsen substitute one) is most welcome.

Okay.

Arnór and Eiður are the only father and son to play for the Iceland national football team during the same game. Arnór was 34 and Eiður was just 17 when it happened. Although they never actually played together, Eiður came on as a second-half substitute for his father in a match on 24 April 1996.

Did Max Christie and Terry Christie win the Challenge Cup together at Alloa?

Ex-Motherwell goalie Stuart Rennie was manager at Edinburgh City for a while and later returned as assistant. His son Calum played for the team when he was assistant and I think they won the King Cup together.

Adam Rae won the Junior Cup with Dunbar United in 1961. Son Gordon didn't quite manage to win the Scottish Cup with Hibs...

chap I follow on Twitter came up with this smashing bit of trivia the other day:

Scotland internationals Gordon McQueen & Andy Goram plus ex-Rangers boss Jock Wallace - their dads all played in goal for @LeithAthleticFC

Aye, congratulations to Steve and Chris Cadden and to Albion Rovers on their fine success. I admit to a soft spot for The Wee Rovers - perennial underdogs and born survivors. They truly deserve their celebration this season.

Joe Craig received an SFL First Division winner's medal with Partick Thistle in 1975-76. His son, Steven, repeated the feat with the Jags in season 2012-13.

Gordon Marshall Sr. (goalkeeper) took the feat down a different route - both of his boys followed in his footsteps by playing for Celtic. Gordon Jr. was the famous goalie and Scott was a full-back.

In all, there's been a grand total of nine fathers and sons to have gained full international caps for Scotland:

Player (Year of first cap)

Alex Higgins Sr. (1885), Alex Higgins Jr. (1910)
Neilly Gibson (1895), Jimmy Gibson (1926)
Barney Battles Sr. (1901), Barney Battles Jr. (1930)
Jimmy McMenemy (1905), John McMenemy (1933)
Jimmy Blair Sr. (1920), Jimmy Blair Jr. (1946)
Jimmy Simpson (1934), Ronnie Simpson (1967)
Alfie Conn Sr. (1956), Alfie Conn Jr. (1975)
Archie Gemmill (1971), Scot Gemmill (1995)
Frank Gray (1976), Andy Gray (2003)

James McGhee was Hibs' Scottish Cup winning captain in 1887 befre going on to manage Hearts. His son Bart McGhee was the first British player to score a goal at a World Cup Finals, scoring the second ever World Cup goal for the USA in Uruguay 1930. He missed scoring the first ever World Cup goal by just 4 minutes to Laurent of France.

Jock Newall won the 2nd Division with Ayr United in 1936/37 just as his Dad had done in 1912/13.

Donald Urquhart isn't Johnny Urquharts son, Johnnys son is called Brian.
