Help please!

Now then, a request for some information.

I received an email asking if I had any information about Matt Brown who played for Stirling Albion and Inverness Caledonian back in the 1950s.

The email was from Matt's sister Irene who still lives in his hometown of Brigton.

Matt eventually emigrated to America where he stayed in the game as a university coach in Nevada.

Unfortunately Matt died a few weeks ago and Irene would love to get some more information on his playing days to send to his family in the States.

Irene thought that Matt might have played for Scotland. I can find no record of this but there were a lot of representative sides back in the fifties so it might have been that he was capped for a Scottish Football League XI or an amateur side.

Anyways, if you can shed any light please get in touch and I'll make sure the info gets to Irene.

  1. That was my Da. It was a nice thing to see on the web. He always said he represented Scotland as a junior but I don't have any evidence. He had a varied career in the States, mostly playing club ball and coaching. He had good success with the San Francisco Scots.
