teamline notes
  • Teamlines per MT, OH concurs.
dubious goals panel
  • MT gives first Thistle goal to John Proudfoot and names no other scorers. OH/JL say Paul (2) and Campbell and we stick with them. JL credits Ferguson with one of Motherwell's goals (presumably Robert) but he isn't listed in the MT line-up. Further, Ferguson didn't sign until October, 1896, according to John's player disc, so it's a bit of a mystery. We have presumed that it's a human-error, a misreading of the similar Paterson as Ferguson, especially since both players were centre-forwards.
attendance notes
  • 3000 (OH); 1000 (JL); 1500 (MT)
