Edinburgh City

I noticed the Scottish Cup ties this weekend featured a team called Edinburgh City. Any link to the embarassing outfit of the same name in the 1930s with the terrible record of always finishing bottom and conceding loads of goals?

The same team that beat Hibs 3-2 away in the Scottish Cup?

Not really.

They were originally called Postal United, but they became involved with the Edinburgh City social/sports club which still existed but without the footballing arm and they agreed to back them and they changed their identity to Edinburgh City.
