On this day in 1958, Scotland played their first post World Cup game against Wales at Ninian Park, Cardiff. The line-up included several players making their debuts; John Grant of Hibs and Willie Toner of Kilmarnock, both of whom would only win two caps. David Herd of Arsenal who passed away a few weeks ago and one Denis Law, then of Huddersfield. Herd and Law would play together for Manchester United in the sixties.
Scotland would win 3-0 with goals from Fulham’s Graham Leggat, Bobby Collins of Everton and Denis Law. One of the more experienced players in the team was Tommy Docherty who would recall Law to the Scotland side after a three year absence in 1972. I don’t have any highlights of the match to post but I do have the Match Programme from our website to post.
