Help... Is anyone aware of a club - in Scotland, or elsewhere - playing 3 (or more) cup finals in 1 week? Or better still, winning 3 or more cup finals in 1 week?

Does not have to be in top level league.

Going down to amateur level from the East Fife Amateur league 1935-6
season

11th May Montgomery Final St Monans 6-2 Cupar MS
12th May McArthur Final St Monans 3-1 Tayport Violet
13th May Janetta Final St Monans 2-0 Craill
14th May Davidson Final St Monans 2-1 Cupar Hearts
15th May Lindsay Final Cupar MS 2-0 St Monans

St Monans also won the league, Midlands (now North of Tay) cup and reached the semifinal of the Scottish amateur cup.

I would think three finals in a week wouldn't be that unusual at junior level, end of season rush to get all fixtures played.
