Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bernard "Barney" Joseph Battles was a Scottish footballer whose name is synonymous with Heart of Midlothian. A dual-internationalist, he represented both Scotland and the United States at full international level. Battles was the son of former Scotland internationalist Barney Battles senior, who played for and won honours with both Celtic and Hearts, amongst others, in the 1890s and 1900s. Battles senior contracted pneumonia and died aged 30, before the birth of his son, who was named in his memory. The monies taken from the stand at the 1905 Scotland v Ireland match at Celtic Park were donated by host club Celtic to the grieving Battles family in tribute to their former player.show more
