Happy Birthday to Ray Stewart who will turn 61 today. Ray played ten times for Scotland all as a West Ham player, initially under Jock Stein and was hopeful of getting to the 1982 World Cup. He was apparently on the list of 24 of possible players for Spain '82 but he and Tommy Burns were left behind. Ray blames it on being sent off at Hampden in April of that year in an Under-21 match against England. He was sent off for fighting with Mark Hateley in the last minute of the match. Ray scored one goal for Scotland against Northern Ireland in a 2-0 win at Hampden in the Home Internationals of May 1981. Ray's proudest moment with Scotland was apparently the 1-0 victory over England at Wembley in 1981.

Not so good news.

Scotland u19 game abandoned just before halftime, due to coach Billy Stark proving positive for Covid 19.

Begs the question how was the game allowed to go ahead, before the results of tests were concluded.

This can only set back fans attendance further.
