[LF] Peter Scarff (1908)

Peter Scarff was born in 1908 and played alongside Charlie Napier in the early 1930s, when they were both considered highly talented young forwards. As a player he was a powerful forward, playing as an inside-left, and had a a very laudable goal scoring record. He was said to be able to get past his man as well as he could score, so must have been a great talent. Said to be a worthy successor to the great Jimmy McMenemy, which was quite an accolade.

He was to be a mainstay in the first side, and he was in the team that beat Rangers for the 1930 Glasgow Cup, and won the 1931 Scottish Cup final against Motherwell in a replay. The legendary Jimmy McGrory considered this Celtic team the best he played with, and Scarff was an important and quickly improving part of it. Scarff went on the 1931 tour of America with Celtic, where funnily he scored five goals against Montreal Carsteel.
