thanks sumo, the winger (marked as AN Other) was a former Bellshill boy too, but I can't for the life of me remember his name!

Not had chance to update in a while but will get on it soon. Have added team list from 3rdXV game at Dumfries with possibly the biggest back line out , all forwards have a look . Sumo , Willie W centre , Hiddy and rab Brown wings with ayouthfull Gordie Muir at FB. Not sure scorers if anyone knows if they scored that day then let me know. Sumo thinks Roddy T was in back row but not sure. Thanks Sumo for digging through your mind to find this gem.

great game. I was playing stand off and there was a tremendous fight that involved everybody in the backs punching the dumfries centre; including rab brown who by the time he had ran to the fight it had stopped but he hit the guy anyway after running such a long distance.

Hey Guys , have put up results for years Dalziel got promotion. 73/74 Div 5 West Undefeated P13 W 13 , also a Cup game v Ayr who were 3 Divisions above and only lost narrowly 10-0. 80/81 Div 4 P11 W 10 . 87/88 Div 2 P 13 W 10 Promoted to Division 2 , 1stXV played 8 games in a month March / April . Glasgow Cup / Lanarkshire Cup / River Series Trophy. Beating Stirling County(Div2 ) , Kilmarnock ( Div 1) , Hillhead (Div 2) , Beating Clarkston in Glasgow Cup Final. Before running out of steam and losing to Heroits (Div 1 ) and East Kilbride all midweek games tues /thurs and winning Haddington and Lanarkshire 7's at the weekends. Some going. So in the 6 seasons where we were promoted (inc 09/10 & 02/03) we only lost 6 games & drawn 2 out of 77 games. So have a look and if anyone knows if they played in any of these games let me know so can add. Cheers Go Dalziel.

Guys found this, Herald 6 Oct 1924 , first mention of Dalziel I have found. Match Report. Dalziel 7 2nd Craigielea Nil . At Motherwell in good weather. Play was very evenly contested in first portion & the teams crossed over with a clean sheet. In the 2nd half however the home lot asserted themselves & I.Henderson scored a drop goal. This success was followed up with a try from B.Henderson & a keen & evenly contested tussle ended in victory for Dalziel by 7 points to nil. Wonder if these Hendersons are realated to Stewart and Scott who played for us in 80 /90's.

Just to say:

I scored a try for 2XV against Lenzie - 14/8/10
I played for 2XV against Irvine - 21/8/10
Gavin Armstrong scored a try for 2XV against Uddingston - 26/8/10

anyone else that has games they remember playing/scoring in, post here and we'll update the records! Think Cammy and I have done most of our own games and a lot of what Info Cammy has come across (the herald archive is pretty cool!) so now it's time to add more!
