Falkirk FC 1919?


I have this picture in my possession, it purports to be Falkirk FC in 1919 [and I have no reason to doubt it, but cannot substantiate it either]. I can tell some of the players, Tom Scott [Back row second left], Tom Ferguson [goalie, back row third from left], James Miller [Back Row fourth from left]; Robert McDougall [Front Row, Centre [and with the ball, so Captain, which surprised me]]. But I do not know most of these people.

I suspect it was taken before the match v Raith Rovers on the 16th August 1919, and the players I know fit into that, but I cannot be sure. If you can shed any light, or help me in any way, please get in touch.
