Scottish FA Cup website

Just wanted to let people know about the existence of my website on the Scottish Cup at:

I originally created it in support of my book in order to provide errata & updates, but latterly refocused it to cover all seasons of the Cup instead. Note that I have numerous errata/updates still to post arising from further research :!: and intend adding in the 1873 - 1890 results once I check the html has been correctly generated.

I obtained approval from British Pathe and William Hill to embed their YouTube videos so you will find cup final clips for many of the years from 1920s up to and including this season. Looking to add a cup final summary page next and to sprinkle in team photos etc. once I establish appropriate approvals from a copyright perspective.

If anyone knows of sources or contacts in this respect or other videos etc. then please let me know.

I believe I have scrubbed the inevitable typos out of the posted results and that the All Time Table is now bedding down in terms of accuracy.

I welcome suggestions or feedback :P

Delighted to see a site devoted to the old blue ribbon event. Regarding the pre 1890 seasons, 1880-81 is coming up as a Page Not Found. Also the following postings from this site may prove useful...

Thanks Brian. 1880-81 is now up. Will look into the Ayr Thistle match as I must have missed this when I originally trawled through the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Heralds whilst I was living in Ayr.

FYI I have posted details of the Whitefield and Athole match :P

Picked a random season, 1970-71, and have a couple of comments:

East Fife v St Mirren, R3 second replay. Was won by St Mirren.
St Mirren v Rangers, R4, correct score 1-3

Thanks. Noted mark over Rangers score in the Herald page scan. The score reversal I already had in my auto-generated list of teams appearing in a later round not having won in the previous which I've still to review. Thus fixed these and a few more of the more obvious ones in various seasons. All-time-table refreshed.
