Glasgow Dental Cup

Post by zurabiceman » Thu Dec 05, 2019 2:05 pm

I am looking for information regarding this competition, I believe Partick Thistle were the first winners in 1928 but I am looking for all other winners and years competed if possible, thanks.

There was an equivalent tournament in 1921-22, on that occasion raising money for the Lord Provost's Rent Relief Fund.

Identical arrangements... 6 Glasgow clubs/autumn midweek afternoons/1 tie per week/etc.

Autumn midweek football in Glasgow was also trialled in 1912-13:
