Ken Scotland Athlete

Kenneth "Ken" J.F. Scotland was a Scottish rugby union player. He played for Scotland a number of times between 1957 and 1965, and for the British Lions on their 1959 tour of New Zealand; he was a full-back. He also played for the Scottish national cricket team. Scotland was originally picked for the match against France, while doing his National Service in the Army, and scored the only points in the match, a drop goal and a penalty. Richard Bath writes of him that: However, after his first international season he ran into trouble, when he had a trial for Cambridge University, and it is claimed he lost his form all that autumn, and was only third choice for the University. An injury to Robin Chisholm brought him back onto the Scotland team, and played for another five seasons without discussion. Gordon Waddell was one of his more famous team mates at Cambridge. Scotland's goal kicking style was highly influential: But on the other hand, Scotland missed three penalty kicks against England during 1962 Calcutta Cup. After moving to Aberdeen, Ken Scotland played for Aberdeenshire, and for the Scottish North-Midlands district team.
