Trivia

  Scot Symon took over as manager from the retired Bill Struth.

  Willie Woodburn was the subject of a SFA 'sine die' (lifetime) ban in September 1954 despite being red carded just 5 times in his career! The SFA revoked their punishment three years later, but by then Woodburn was 37 and his playing career was over. He was the last footballer in Britain to receive a life ban from the game for indiscipline.
