Falkirk FC - Goal on League Debut


I pretty much have the complete Falkirk FC record for League matches 1902/03-1938/39, I am missing some first names & three goals, so am pretty confident about this.

I would have compiled a list of players who scored on their senior debut for Falkirk, however the lack of coverage for the early Scottish Cup matches would have rendered it largely guesswork before the 1890s.

Notes

Patsy Gallacher scored on his official debut v Dunfermline Athletic (H) on the 9th Oct 1926, but had played as a trialist the previous week v Hearts (A).

David Cowan made his debut v Ayr Utd (A) in a league match which was subsequently expunged because Falkirk were found guilty of match rigging.

Hugh Murray scored in his League debut v Clyde (A) on the 12th Aug 1939, but the league was cancelled after five matches, due to war.
