Notes:  "IRELAND(IFA)" is used to describe the Irish Football Association (IFA) based in Belfast in all matches – 
        official and unofficial - from 1921 to 1953 inclusive. It is to differentiate it from the Football Association 
        of Ireland (FAI), formed in Dublin in 1921. From 1921 to 1953 both associations styled their teams as Ireland. 
        A more detailed explanation is included at point 1 in the notes on the page of "Scotland - International Results".  
        One source gives the Scottish goal in the 56th minute to Dodds.
        The attendance was a new record for Windsor Park.


Saturday 13th April 1946 (Victory international) SCOTLAND XI - ENGLAND 1-0 (0-0) Referee: Peter Craigmyle (Aberdeen, Scotland) Crowd: 139.468, Hampden Park, Glasgow Goal: 1-0 Delaney (88) SCOTLAND XI: Robert Brown (Queen's Park) David Shaw (Hibernian) John (Jock) Shaw (Rangers) capt. William Bowie Campbell (Morton) Frank Brennan (Airdrieonians) John (Jacky) Husband (Partick Thistle) William Tweedie Orr Waddell (Rangers) Cornelius (Neil) Dougall (Birmingham City) James Delaney (Manchester United) Thomas Walker (Heart of Midlothian) William Beveridge Liddell (Liverpool) ENGLAND: Frank Victor Swift (Manchester City), Lawrence Scott (Arsenal), George Francis Moutry Hardwick (Middlesbrough), William Ambrose Wright (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Cornelius (Neil) Franklin (Stoke City), Joseph Mercer (Everton) capt., William Bethwaite Elliott (West Bromwich Albion), Leonard Francis Shackleton (Bradford (Park Avenue)), Thomas Lawton (Chelsea), James Hagan (Sheffield United), Denis Charles Scott Compton (Arsenal). Notes: John and David Shaw were brothers. This capacity of the ground was set at 138.000 and was all-ticket. The actual attendance was the fifth highest- ever crowd at Hampden Park and exceeded the limit set. Despite this about 1.000 ticket holders were unable to gain entry as the Police judged the terraces were full and ordered the turnstiles to be closed. The unlucky supporters organised an urgent meeting and sent a petition of complaint to the Scottish Football Association.
Saturday 24th August 1946 (Bolton Disaster Fund) ENGLAND - SCOTLAND XI 2-2 (2-1) Referee: George Dutton (Warwick, England) Crowd: 70.000, Maine Road, Manchester Goals: 1-0 Welsh (12), 1-1 Thornton (24), 2-1 Welsh (44) penalty, 2-2 Thornton (85) ENGLAND: Frank Victor Swift (Manchester City) capt., Joseph Walton (Manchester United), George Francis Moutry Hardwick (Middlesbrough), William Ambrose Wright (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Leon Harry Leuty (Derby County), Frank Rollason Mitchell (Birmingham City), Stanley Matthews (Stoke City), Donald Welsh (Charlton Athletic), Reginald Lewis (Arsenal), Alfred [Walter] Fielding (Everton), Charles Mitten (Manchester United). SCOTLAND XI: William Miller (Celtic) David Shaw (Hibernian) John (Jock) Shaw (Rangers) capt. William Bowie Campbell (Morton) Frank Brennan (Newcastle United) John (Jacky) Husband (Partick Thistle) William Tweedie Orr Waddell (Rangers) Cornelius (Neil) Dougall (Birmingham City) William Thornton (Rangers) George Hamilton (Aberdeen) William Beveridge Liddell (Liverpool) Notes: This match was played for the benefit of the Bolton Disaster Fund. The Bolton disaster occurred at Burnden Park, Bolton on 9th March 1946 when 33 spectators died and hundreds of others were injured due to crushing at a Bolton Wanderers v Stoke City FA Cup match. The Scottish Football Association made a donation of £1,000 to the fund and agreed to pay all its own expenses relating to this fund-raising match. The match raised approx. £12,000. The attendance at Maine Road was limited to 70.000, more than 10.000 below the holding capacity at the time. The report into the disaster had been published by the time of the match with recommendations to improve crowd control. Clubs took immediate action and it is likely the 70.000 limit was imposed as a direct result of the report. George Dutton had reached the upper age limit as a referee and was not included on the Football League list of referees for the forthcoming 1946/47 season. However, as he was the referee at the Bolton disaster match he was asked to officiate at this game.
Wednesday 28th May 1947 (Friendly match) BRITISH ARMY OF THE RHINE COMBINED SERVICES XI - SCOTLAND XI 4-3 (1-2) Referee: nk Crowd: 30.000, Bahrenfeld Stadium, Hamburg Goals: 0-1 Young (9), 1-1 Thompson (14), 1-2 Pearson (40), 2-2 Dutchman (66), 3-2 Lee (71), 4-2 Thompson (80), 4-3 Pearson (85) BAOR COMBINED SERVICES XI: Sgt James Clews Cowan (Morton), Sgt Ivor Verdun Powell (Queen's Park Rangers), Sgt James Guy Taylor (Fulham), Capt Thomas Stewart (Queen's Park), Sgt Ronald Frederick Stitfall (Cardiff City), Capt Alexander Cross (Queen's Park) (captain), Sgt Dennis Thompson (Sheffield United), FO John Arthur Dutchman (Leeds United), Cpl George Thomas Lee (York City), Sgt Edward Francis Baily (Tottenham Hotspur), Cpl Thomas Powell (Derby County). SCOTLAND XI: William Miller (Celtic) David Shaw (Hibernian) John (Jock) Shaw (Rangers) Hugh Brown (Partick Thistle) William Alexander Woodburn (Rangers) John (Jacky) Husband (Partick Thistle) William MacFarlane (Heart of Midlothian) Robert Wilson Flavell (Airdrieonians) George Lewis Young (Rangers) William Steele (Morton) Thomas Usher Pearson (Newcastle United) Notes: The newspaper match reports give the name Sgt Powell (Queen's Park), however, we believe that this is Welsh international Ivor Powell of Queen's Park Rangers. The original name of the English club Queen's Park Rangers (with an apostrophe) was changed to Queens Park Rangers (without an apostrophe) from the beginning of the 1968/69 season. The secretary of the club had redesigned the matchday programme in October 1967 and with it dropped the apostrophe for an aesthetic not a grammatical reason. This style was adopted by the club after that.
Wednesday 23rd February 1949 (Friendly match) SCOTLAND XI - BRITISH ARMY 7-1 (5-0) Referee: John Alexander Mowat (Burnside, Scotland) Crowd: 20.224, Tynecastle Park, Edinburgh Goals: 1-0 Turnbull (17), 2-0 Mason (25), 3-0 Ormond (33), 4-0 Thornton (35), 5-0 Ormond (41), 6-0 Thornton (46), 6-1 Johnstone (52), 7-1 Turnbull (74) SCOTLAND XI: James Clews Cowan (Morton) William Douglas Telfer (St.Mirren) Thomas Fleming McKenzie (Heart of Midlothian) Robert Evans (Celtic) George Lewis Young (Rangers) capt. Alfred Boyd (Dundee) William Tweedie Orr Waddell (Rangers) James Mason (Third Lanark) William Thornton (Rangers) Edward Hunter Turnbull (Hibernian) William Esplin Ormond (Hibernian) BRITISH ARMY: Pte Ronald Campbell Simpson (RAC & Queen's Park), Gnr John Alfred Flavell (RA & West Bromwich Albion), S/I W Crosbie (APTC), Pte Cameron Campbell Buchanan (South Staffs Regt & Wolverhampton Wanderers), SQMS Percy Arthur Andrews (Royal Signals & York City), L/Cpl Dennis Victor Martin (RAOC & Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic), L/Cpl Walter Alexander Alan Hinshelwood (Middlesex Regt & Fulham), Dvr Robert Johnstone (RASC & Hibernian), Gnr John Wallace (Iain) Jamieson (RA & Coventry City), L/Cpl William Simeon McPhail (HLI & Clyde), L/Cpl James [Ernest/(Ernie)] Bond (East Lancs Regt & Preston North End). Notes: The Scottish Fuel Efficiency Committee made a formal protest to the War Office about this match. It was concerned that the game played on a midweek afternoon would lead to absenteeism and interfere with industrial production. The War Office pointed out that the SFA had set the date for the match that was a practice match for the Scotland XI and similar matches had drawn small attendances of 6-7.000. Sir Patrick Dollan, chairman of the committee was told that the War Office would not have allowed the match to go ahead if they knew the attendance was likely to exceed those of previous games. Sir Patrick wrote to the Chancellor of the Exchequer to raise his concerns that Scottish football was not falling in line with England and was still playing matches in midweek.

He played in seven full internationals for Scotland between 1948-1951 and was never cautioned by a referee during his long career. Sir George Graham, SFA secretary, helped organise an interesting game that would attract a good attendance. He invited Sunderland FC to play a Scotland XI at the home ground of Third Lanark FC. Cathkin Park was the name given to the 2nd Hampden Park when Third Lanark took over the ground in 1904.

John went on play 19 times (2 goals) for Scotland. Sydney O'Linn, Stuart Leary and Denis Foreman also played First Class cricket and O'Linn represented South Africa. Charlton Athletic had engaged several South African players and the club's manager, Jimmy Seed, was invited to assemble a team of South Africans playing in the United Kingdom to play this match. The team was referred to as the Anglo-South African XI. This was slightly misleading as "Anglo" in footballing term refers to England whereas the team included players from a Scottish club. The match raised £8,000 for the British Olympic Games Appeal Fund.
