I recently bought this postcard from 1952, signed by the Scotland B footballers who faced their French counterparts in our first ever B international, played at the Municipal Stadium in Toulouse (below). It is a sad indictment of the lack of international talent at our disposal just now that Scotland would struggle to field a side at this level, but 60 years ago we could count on a number of talented men - and notably two future Scotland managers, Willie Ormond and Tommy Docherty. Thanks to the Partick Thistle archive, there is a team photo available. The match was drawn 0-0.
