Scottish Cup 1873 - 1986 by John Byrne

Postby bobby s » Tue Jun 24, 2008 8:17 pm

Anyone have any ideas on how to aquire this book as I believe it may contain goalscorer information in Scottish Cup ties in the 19th and early 20th century?

I'm trying to put together the all time list of cup goalscorers for Hibs and information is understandably sketchy. No point re-inventing the wheel if the information has already been collated.

I'll do you a page linking to the SDA reports for Hibs Cup Games.

I came across an error that has Hibs beating Edina 9-0 in the Cup when they played Queens Park that day and the Edina game was played in the EFA Cup. It is in quite a lot of reference books.

I have a very battered, falling-to-bits copy but which still has - I think - all the pages sort of intact. If there's any game not covered by the SDA stuff let me know and I'll give you whatever details it has.

No idea how to obtain a copy these days.

Davy & David

Thanks once again for your help.

I'm having an aberration here: what is SDA?

Assuming it covers all Ties can someone please have a look and let me know what the book states for Celtic scorers v Shettleston on 1st September 1888.

No goalscorers given for either side, I'm afraid. Nor are there any scorers recorded in the Herald match report.

Thanks for checking.

I've tried most sources I could find at the Mitchell including the Herald with no success. There is reference to the game and the score but that's it.

I keep hoping that I may have missed a report and that someone else has more luck and finds it

I got a reply from my bookseller friend:

I don't have a copy of anything suitable just now...

as well as the John Byrne which was published in a fairly limited run
you could keep an eye out for

THE BREEDON BOOK OF SCOTTISH FOOTBALL RECORDS
by Gordon Smailes Published by Breedon in 1995 ISBN 185983020X

or THE COMPLETE SCOTTISH F.A. CUP RESULTS BOOK 1873 - 2004
by Alexander Graham Published by Soccer Books in 2004, ISBN 1862231117


Do they contain the same information? Does anyone have either of those books?

Finally got a very good copy of this treasure - www.bookfinder.com did the business - worth a check if anyone is still looking
