Re: Maley's Record Still Remains Unbeaten

On the otherhand I'd question whether records set during WWI should count. Lower-league shut-down, Scottish Cup shut-down, clubs outside central belt withdrawn, rules relaxed, even 1 game unplayed. Similar numbers of clubs played on in WWII - but it's entirely voided as it wasn't officially SFA/SFL ...

Re: Renfrewshire Cup finals

There is a booklet giving details on the Renfrewshire Cup until the mid-1920s, IIRC, produced by Stewart Davidson. It may give final line-ups, I can't recall. No further volumes were produced. Some post-war details will be found on St Mirren Programmes website: http://www.stmirrenprogrammes.co.uk/St...

Re: Sheriff of London Charity Shield

It was the size of a wardrobe door. Here it is pictured in Arsenal hands along with many other trophies: there is - by any other measure - a pretty formidable shield off to the left too, and presumably the FA's Charity Shield directly to the right of the Sherriff of London's. https://pbs.twimg.com/m...

Re: Glasgow against Sheffield

By the way, the same day the papers report a Hawick restaurateur being fined 10s (plus 22s 6d costs), or 5 days in prison, for selling a pack of chewing gum out-of-hours.

No half-measures back then when it came to the long arm of the law!

Re: Longest Gap between Scottish Cup appearances

Ah, fair enough. That said it's increasingly 'complex' nowadays with clubs going bust 'n reforming, others appropriating histories, and so on.

Anyway basic question stands.

Longest Gap between Scottish Cup appearances

Mid Annandale will qualify for 2018-19's Scottish Cup if they beat Tynecastle in the South & East of Scotland Cup-Winners' Shield next month.

They last featured in 1930-31... 88yrs prior.

Anyone know what the longest 'gap' between appearances is?

Re: Scottish Cup

Yep, I was observing this over on P&B. Even if you restrict it to SAFA clubs, it's been done several times since the cup went 'all in' again in 2007-08, by Burntisland (before they joined EOSL) and Glasgow Uni. They're the first amateur qualifier to reach R2 - and indeed R1 - but they're only th...

Re: Scottish Cup

SFA's coverage on twitter etc. was actually pretty good (a few years ago they were getting justified pelters for barely recognising R1 existed) - but even they fell into the same trap e.g. at one point I think they talked about Edusport having their first-ever tie. Also I temper too hearty congratul...

Re: Scottish Cup ties in Edinburgh

Thanks, so 84yrs, that's quite a stretch! Spartans v Vale of Leithen is on Friday night due to an Edinburgh City league game, so there won't be 4 on at the same time sadly. One freak of the situation is that with Hibs away and Hearts reversing their game to Partick due to the delays with Tynecastle'...

Scottish Cup ties in Edinburgh

There are 4 Scottish Cup ties in Edinburgh this weekend in R1 - Spartans v Vale of Leithen, LTHV v Inverurie Loco Works, Edinburgh University v Lossiemouth, Civil Service Strollers v Strathspey Thistle. There hasn't been more than 3 since the cup went 'all in' from 2007-08. Anyone know when there we...

Re: Domestic Attendance Records Progression

Apologies if I've misunderstood what's meant here... but mention of "defunct" tournaments and categories like the Glasgow Charity Cup and Inter-City matches, made me think of the Inter-League matches. According to AFS the crowd at Celtic Park for the Scottish League v Football League on 8t...

Jimmy Frame - Rangers and Dumbarton

This forward - full name James Buchanan Frame - was born on 22nd October 1929... He signed for Rangers from Clydebank Juniors in September 1948 but only seems to have made 1 first-team appearance the month before (as a trialist?), probably as he was on national service: he played for the British Arm...

Re: First of Many I Guess...

Perhaps unsurprisingly, quite a lot of terrace chants and songs have their origin in hymns and other religious songs. Off the top of my head - "When the Saints Go Marching In" (self-explanatory)... "This is my Story, This is my Song" / "Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine"...
