Hi guys!

I've received a request from America to try to get some details of one of your former players.

Any help you can provide will be passed-on and greatly appreciated.

Here's the email...



My wife and I are researching her Father (who sadly passed away 5 years ago).

His name is Fergus Davidson and we know that he played Football in Scotland, although only as an amateur and also Tennis.

Through our research so far and contacting other clubs, we have discovered that he made 19 appearances for Dundee United in 1936.

We also know he signed for Hibernian in 1935 and may have also played for Queens Park, later that same decade.

Is there anyway you could aid us in our research and find any information you may possibly have on his playing days?

We don't know if he ever played for the 1st team, or if it was only a reserve. But any information you could find out, would be so greatly appreciated.

Just a thought, but what year did Dundee Hibernian change their name to Dundee United?

Pretty sure it was in the 1920s?

London Hearts website has not only statistics of the period but newspaper articles

I would recommend e mailing the webmaster (who posts on here as LHWM) at [email protected]

I am sure he would be able to help, especially of the dates of first team appearances for Dundee United and Queens Park were available

Thanks - I'll do just that.

And thanks to everyone else who replied.
