team notes:

James Marshall replaced Arsenal FC's Alec James as inside-right on 28 March. James was considered unlikely to start when the team was chosen. The day after, Peter Wilson replaced the original captain, Davie Meiklejohn, allowing Bob Gillespie to become the last ever amateur to captain the Scotch team. Both withdrawals were due to leg injuries.
