Re: Extra Time in Scottish Football

Almost certainly such instances were just bespoke agreements - perhaps to avoid another long journey; cancelling an upcoming local cup-tie or glamour friendly; players' unavailability; etc. Others pre-1908?: 1876-77 ... Final ... Vale of Leven v Rangers 1877-78 ... SF ... Renton v Third Lanark 1879-...

Re: Extra Time in Scottish Football

Worth adding that special arrangements applied in the late 1940s due to the "Fuel Crisis" and productivity scare. At the end of February/start of March 1947 restrictions were introduced on midweek football. Hearts v Cowdenbeath in R3 which had been postponed went to extra-time whereas the ...

Re: Extra Time in Scottish Football

I think that must have been an 'exceptional' arrangement. It looks like extra-time in 2nd replays onward was introduced in 1908-09. Famously there was confusion when the Final 1st replay didn't go to extra-time causing riot and in the end the cup wasn't awarded. After this extra-time was introduced ...

Re: London Hearts results database

Aye, unfortunately it only seems to show games on dates where the site has a newspaper report image. Just wondering if there's a "way in" to any date or week.

London Hearts results database

With the demise of Statto.com, there's a handy feature on "London Hearts" giving the results of Scottish League and League Cup matches (and all English football) for any given week. If you scroll to the bottom of this page on the Edinburgh Derby 50yrs ago, for example, you'll see what I me...

Re: Lowest attendance?

Nope... 431 was the attendance for Gretna FC v Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the top division in 2007-08, nevermind in tier 3! Though not played in Scotland only 403 attended the Scottish Challenge Cup R3 tie TNS v Livingston this season... it was little better than the 733 who watched the same ma...

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 Lower-league shut-down, Scottish Cup shut-down, clubs outside central belt withdrawn, rules relaxed, even 1 game unplayed.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...
