Post Lot Text
The above lot represents one of the four Internationals Frank Watt played for Scotland.
Born in Beith Ayrshire, in February 1866, Watt played at outside right for both Kilbirnie and Scotland. A famous forward in the late 19th Century he is perhaps best remembered for his last International appearance against England in 1891 when he scored the only Scottish goal in a 2-1 defeat. This was the first International in which goal nets were used and the English goalkeeper that day was Billy Moon. Inevitably, newspaper reports of the game carried the headline "Frank Watt kicks the ball over the moon".
Included in this lot is a copy of an interview between the sports correspondent, Jamieson Clark, and Frank Watt.
In the 1889 International against Wales the match ended in a 0-0 draw
