Notes:  The match was played for the benefit of the family of John White (Tottenham Hotspur & Scotland) who had 
        tragically died after being struck by lightning on 21st July 1964. It was due to be played the day before 
        but fog led to a late postponement to the next evening. 
        Bill Nicholson, the Spurs manager, had anticipated John's brother, Thomas, may have been selected to play 
        in the Scotland XI. When he was not, Bill invited him to lead the attack of the Spurs team for the match. 
        He was temporarily transferred from his club, Heart of Midlothian.  
        The 15 players and trainer in the Scottish party instructed the SFA secretary to pay the total of their 
        match fees (320) directly to the John White Fund. The SFA informed Spurs that they would not be claiming 
        any travel/accommodation costs from the gate receipts and donated a further 1,000. The total raised by 
        the fund, including the proceeds from this match, was believed to be around 15,000.


Monday 2nd May 1966 (Alex Dowdells Testimonial Match) LEICESTER CITY - SCOTLAND XI 1-1 (1-0) Referee: James Finney (Hereford, England) Crowd: 8.020, Filbert Street, Leicester Goals: 1-0 Dougan (16), 1-1 Penman (60) LEICESTER CITY: Peter Leslie Shilton, Richard Norman, Graham Frederick Cross, John Sjoberg, Colin Harry Appleton, Paul William Matthews, James Boyd Goodfellow, Alexander [Derek] Dougan, David Wedderburn Gibson, John Evens Wright (Jackie) Sinclair.

He had previously served Celtic for 16 years and prior to that several Scottish Junior clubs and the Junior Scotland team. The Scotland team was made up of Scottish-based players as the English season had not yet finished and some clubs were reluctant to release their players. Both Celtic and Rangers were in action later that week and so none of their players were included. The match receipts contributed 1,850 to the fund.
