    Just joined your site and have been looking into your records on Northern Ireland players, and have been comparing them to my own and other sources on the internet, i have uncovered a number of errors as listed below:-


    (1)

    Chris Nicholl - Listed as 52 FIFA appearances, the correct total is 51 Source

    Jimmy Nicholl - Listed as 72 FIFA appearances, the corrrect total is 73 Source

    The total number of FIFA matches for them is incorrect there is a game in 1979 in which Chris has been mistaken for Jimmy.


    (2)

    Billy Simpson - Listed as 11 FIFA appearances, the correct total is 12 Source
    The missing game is in 1953.


    (3)

    Billy Caskey - Listed as 8 FIFA appearances, the correct total is 7 Source

    Bryan Hamilton - Listed as 49 FIFA appearances, the correct total is 50 Source

    There is a sub appearance missing for 1980, it is from one of the Australia friendlies on the 11th June or 18th June. Source


    (7)

    Billy Hamilton - Listed as 42 FIFA appearances, the correct total is 41 Source

    There is a sub appearance in 1980 which is not correct, i think it is probably a mix up with the extra sub appearance Bryan Hamilton was awarded in one of the Australia friendlies.
