Scottish Counties Cup 1923-1956

Postby BMCCOLL » Tue Jun 17, 2014 6:56 am

I've researched the Scottish Counties Junior Cup competition of the 1920s and 30s but am still missing a few results and venues... does anyone have info on the following?

1927-28
17 Feb Lanarkshire v Dunbartonshire 1-4 VENUE
Fifeshire v Glasgow DATE/RESULT (L-W)
24 Mar Glasgow v Dunbartonshire 4-1 VENUE

1928-29
29 Dec Fifeshire v Scottish Welfare 4-1 VENUE
Stirlingshire v Renfrewshire DATE/VENUE (due at Recreation Park, Alloa)
13 Apr Lanarkshire v Stirlingshire 0-4 VENUE

1929-30
2 Jan Stirlingshire v Aberdeenshire RESULT (W-L)
Glasgow v Scottish Welfare DATE/RESULT

1930-31
Scottish Welfare v Lanarkshire DATE/RESULT

1931-32
Scottish Welfare v Stirlingshire DATE/RESULT
23 Apr Lanarkshire BEAT Stirlingshire RESULT

Final VENUES
3 Jan 1933 Lanarkshire v Renfrewshire 0-0
21 Jan 1933 Renfrewshire v Lanarkshire 2-2
WAS THE TROPHY SHARED OR ANOTHER GAME PLAYED. THE TWO SIDES SUBSEQUENTLY PLAYED A SEMI-FINAL TIE FOR THE 1932-33 COMPETITION; COULD THIS ALSO HAVE BEEN A DECIDER?

1932-33
1 Apr Renfrewshire v Lanarkshire 4-1 VENUE


1937-38
23 Apr Stirlingshire v Perthshire DRAW (at Forthbank, Stirling) ACTUAL SCORE

1940-41
Final
Aberdeenshire v Perthshire HELD OVER TO 1941-42 BUT WAS IT ACTUALLY PLAYED?

Thanks
Brian

I've got a question mark over the Fife v Scottish Welfare game from 1928/9 as being either at Starks Park or Dunnikier juniors park. And had the 1926/7 semi final between Stirlingshire and Fife at Firs Park.

1937/8 semi final 23rd Apr at Forthbank Stirlingshire 2-2 Perthshire

Fantastic, guys,

I've updated the page and will re-check the venue for the 1926-27 semi. The Greenock venue will, of course, be Cappielow.

Tom has also sent me results for the 1951 to 1953 competitions (I'll add these to the page); of course the another question is in what seasons did the competition actually operate? Did it continue beyond 1953, and also between 1941 and 1951? Is there a pic of the actual trophy still around? Is the trophy still in existence!!??

Thanks again, people!

It might have been a different trophy in the 1950's , the trophy played for was called the RS McColl Cup. Seems to have been played 1953/4 as well although with only five entries

1st rd Aberdeenshire v Fife
s-f Aberdeen/Fife v Forfarshire
Perthshire v Morayshire
Final was 15th May Aberdeenshire 0-3 Perthshire at Linksfield, Aberdeen

Edit found 1st rd result 27th Feb Aberdeenshire 4-1 Fifeshire at Pittodrie

Cheers, Steve, the page on the SFHA has been duly amended.

For the 1952-53 competition I've also found the following info that was missing...

SECOND ROUND 9 May Aberdeenshire v Morayhire 3-2 (at Linksfield Stadium, Aberdeen)
SEMI-FINAL 23 May Aberdeenshire v Stirlingshire 1-2 (at Linksfield Stadium, Aberdeen)
FINAL 2nd leg 29 June was at Glenhead Park, Duntocher (NEED SCORE THOUGH!)

For the other seasons I've ran through what I do have and am missing the following, if they were played,

1929-30
Second round
Glasgow v Scottish Welfare

1930-31
First round
Scottish Welfare v Lanarkshire

1931-32
First round
Scottish Welfare v Stirlingshire

1931-32
Final VENUES
3 Jan 1933 Lanarkshire v Renfrewshire 0-0
21 Jan 1933 Renfrewshire v Lanarkshire 2-2
AND ALSO THE SECOND REPLAY

1955-56
Semi-final

29 Oct Morayshire v Aberdeenshire 2-7 (at Borough Briggs, Elgin)
22 Oct Perthshire v Forfarshire 0-4 (at Davie Park, Blairgowrie)

Final
Forfarshire v Aberdeenshire

Final
3 Jan 1933 Lanarkshire v Renfrewshire 0-0 (at Recreation Park, Wishaw)

1952-53
Second round replay
11 Apr Stirlingshire v Renfrewshire 6-0 (at Duncansfield Park, Kilsyth)

1955-56
