On the Tartan Army Message Board site over in March / April I had been posting vintage magazine covers with Scotland players on them under the thread ‘Is This the Greatest Magazine Cover Ever’.
From World Sports Magazine April 1966, this is action from the previous years Auld Enemy match at Wembley. The match ended up 2 all but I have no idea who the two Scots in this photo are. The Scotland line up for the match was Bill Brown, Alec Hamilton, Eddie McCreadie, Pat Crerand, Billy McNeill, John Greig, Willie Henderson, Bobby Collins, Ian St. John, Denis Law and Davie Wilson. I know it’s Gordon Banks in goals and apparently George Cohen behind him with Booby Moore looking on and Jack Charlton holding somebody down. Scotland goalscorers that day were St. John and Denis Law.
As for the magazine, with the in depth look at the European Table Tennis championships, Cricket and some Athletics coverage you may want to give it a miss. In the meantime it is a classic cover to enjoy.
Other covers I had posted.
