Junior Scotland 1889 to 2019: The Players and Matches

Douglas Gorman and Tom McGouran have compiled the most comprehensive record of Scotland's junior international football team, Junior Scotland 1889 to 2019: The Players and Matches is available from LULU.COM

An excel spreadsheet giving a summary account of this (dates, line-ups, scorers etc) can be accessed HERE

To help fill in the missing information, they have compiled a NEEDS LIST. Please have a look and if you can help in any way please email me and I will forward it on to them.
