In view of the criticism passed on the Scottish Association Selectors in choosing so many Anglo-Scots for the international, the following letter from Alex Raisbeck, the stalwart centre-half, who has done such fine service for Scotland, will be read with interest: –
“I know there is a feeling in some quarters that the services of us Anglo-Scots are too freely utilised for international matches. Perhaps they are, but we are all true Scots, and will be to the end of our days, though we spend them all in England, and I hold we have every right to be considered.
“We are Scotsmen just as if we have never left our native country, and I think the Anglo-Scots have been of some help to Scotland. I am sure we all do our best, and are as keen on winning as any home Scot can be.”
