Welcome!

This site contains A - Z player's career details for all Post War English and Scottish League sides ( click on the club below or the alphabetically listed team names on the left for player's career details).

The records are for players who appeared for their clubs between 1946/47 and the end of the 2013/14 season and who have now left their clubs (current players can be viewed on www.soccerbase.com ).

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The English League player's appearances and goal scorer’s statistics are drawn primarily from Barry Hugman's 'The Premier and Football League Player's Records' series of books, for which I am extremely grateful for his permission to use.

Note that for Scottish League records I have only included teams in Divisions A and B prior to the League reorganisation in the 1955/56 season. Division C teams records are excluded as the majority of clubs competing in this league were reserve teams from the A & B Divisions. For a full explanation of the events leading up to the reorganisation in 1955/56 read HERE. ( an article kindly provided by Alan Bell - Berwick Rangers historian).

This Site will be updated at the end of the season for all players leaving their clubs during the 2014 - 2015 season.

SCOTTISH LEAGUE PLAYER'S PLACES AND DATES OF BIRTH

Prior to the publication of the 1st edition of the Scottish Football League Review in 1982/83 the places and dates of birth of Scottish League footballers were not widely published. As a result of this I have several thousand post-war Scottish players where I cannot complete a full record. If you are one of these players or are related to or are a friend of one of these players please e-mail me at n.brown691@btinternet.com and I will complete a full record.

I would also be delighted to hear from any fans ( or ex - players) concerning those players who have a ' ? ' in the 'Transferred to' column ( this means I don't know what happened to these players when they left the clubs ).
