Raisbeck gets his Scottish benefit

Tuesday, January 6 – 1914
Few players have been more popular among football followers weher-ever their lot has fallen than Alec Raisbeck, who took a well-deserved benefit yesterday, when a team of internationals opposed Partick Thistle at Glasgow.

Mr. Tom Watson was present, and the team of internationals included Jack Parkinson, the Anfield forwards. A good crowd turned up for the match, and there were about 10,000 present, so Raisbeck should receive substantial benefit.

In the game there was plenty of scoring. Bennett got through early for the Internationals, but before the interval Harris and Marshall twiced scored for the Thistle. Parkinson missed a penalty. In the second half Parkinson scored three goals (and Jack failed with a penalty kick), Croal two, and Patterson one for the Internationals, while Marshall had two for Thistle.

This was all the scoring, and the game ended in a win for the Internationals by 7 goals to 5.
