Consolation Cup 1898-99

Post by Insertnamehere » Tue Jun 29, 2010 3:41 pm

In a book on the QC I have a match between Arthurlie and Arbroath, 3rd December 1898, as a two nil win for Arthurlie but in the Barrhead News report it has the score as a five nil win although it doesnt list scorers for once.

Has anyone got a record of either score for this match?

Thanks

Aberdeen Journal give Arthurlie 5-0 but no goalscorers or teams.

Dundee Courier give Arthurlie 5-0 and scorers as Tennent 2, McGregor 2 and Gillespie. Team line-ups given and a decent report available.

Herald gives 5-0 and Tennent as first goalscorer but no other scorers or teams.

I suppose listing hundereds nay thousands of scorers the books are allowed a typo or two so 5-0 it is, many thanks for that its much appreciated.

Two points:

The Consolation Cup in the title of the query was a totally different competition which ran from 1907-1914.

I presume the book you refer to is Stewart Davidson's 'The Scottish Qualifying Cup 1895-1995.' In the original the score of the match in question is given as 2-0 but in later years Stewart issued a four-page update alongside the original. In that the score is given as 5-0. As far as I can see there are two further Arthurlie amendments - the 1914-15 Qualifying Cup 1st round replay has no result in the original but is given as Clydebank 1 Arthurlie 2 in the update and in the 1910-11 Consolation Cup 1st round the original replay score between Arthurlie and Abercorn was 3-0 to the latter but successfully protested with Abercorn finally winning 1-0. The 3-0 match is missing from the original.

David

Thanks, thats the book and I dont have or maybe cant find the update sheet although now you mention it I seem to remember Stewart mentioning it himself so my heads hung in shame!

Thanks again and the beers are on me next time Stewart!
