teamline notes
  • Teamlines per GH.
  • OH lists Bob Campbell, David Freebairn and Robert Currie at the expense of James Cameron, Willie Freebairn and George Hurry.
  • A few typos in the GH (McNairn, Fairbairn, Hurrey) all adjusted (McNair, Freebairn, Hurry).
extra notes
  • Footnote: SR reported that such was the demand for information how the cup was won, there was a run on the Evening News on the Saturday night. They also said a group of fans went to the station to meet the team coming off the train.
dubious goals panel
  • The GH credits William Joyce with Morton's opener, whilst the GT reckons it was James Burns. It's a 50-50 call, but we side with the latter in the hope that the local knowledge is best.
