George Aitken has also amended the 1905-06 Scottish Combination specifically Dumbarton's results.
The Eastern Alliance of 1891-92 now also shows Armadale's 2 point deduction after a breach of Rule. This competition still needs some work done on it...

His late father Willie Hastie's memorabilia included Olympic football from the 1952 Helsinki Games.

This just leaves us only needing the following GB line-ups for a 100% record of every amateur cap; 14 May 1952 v West Germany, 16 Dec 1956 v Burma, 11 Aug 1967 v Republic of Ireland and 14 Aug 1967 v Iceland
30 Apr 1952, Arsenal Stadium, London, att
England ‘B’ ( ) 3 Stubbs ( mins), Hamer (pen ), French ( )
Great Britain (0) 0
Half-time score 2-0
One of the England “B” goal scorers is listed as “Harmer” in the newspaper and I think that is correct as I think it is Tommy Harmer of Spurs.
14 May 1952, Fortunaplatz, Dusseldorf, att 45,000
West Germany (1) 2 Zeitler 2 (19 mins, )
Great Britain (0) 1 Slater (78)
The newspaper report gives another GB player – Fuller (Bromley) - “Bennett (Southall goalkeeper), Fuller (Bromley centre half) were stars of the British team”.
John Treleven has supplied the names of referees for some of England's games.
France 5.4.52 - Charles E. Faultless (Giffnock, Scotland)
Spain 20.11.69 - Joaquim F. Campos (Lisbon, Portugal)
Denmark 1.8.71 - Kjell Wahlen (Nordstrandhogda, Oslo, Norway)
Denmark 10.5.72 - Karl Riegg (Augsburg, Germany)
note Riegg, not Reigg
also Tyskland is Danish for Germany
Against West Germany on 13.3.74 has the same referee as previous week v Malta - this is a possible error which I am looking at.
Örjan Hansson has sent details covering two of Sweden's amateur international games that were omitted.

Mike Cooper asks:
"This is an old picture of a team that my grandfather was a part of. The date and team name was written on it long ago. I'm trying to validate and to seek any other information. What I do know is that my grandfather, William S. Cooper, was born and raised in Parkhead, Glasgow. He left for Canada in Sep 1920 and was 22 at the time. I know he worked as a Hammerman but, I'm not sure exactly where. And, he was a veteran of the Great War. The picture attached is of a post card that my grandfather had sent to his cousin."
Tom Thornton asks:
"Assistance required in identifying the team in the top picture of the three - obviously not too clear but looks to me like there's a covered enclosure in the background, like Arniston's or Bonnyrigg's. Tommy Kerr was born in 1934 and appears to have been at Haddington c 1954-1958. He was in Canada for a spell, perhaps just after this, but we know nothing for sure of his career thereafter - I figured the team might be the Dalkeith title-winning team of 1961 but that now seems doubtful; could it be Arniston's champions of 1954? Neither of those teams though appear to have won anything other than the league title, don't know what the other trophy could be."
