Lanarkshire Express Cup

Post by HibeeJibee » Wed Dec 10, 2014 5:48 pm

I went on to the Scottish Football Historical Archive just now to look-up something in connection with the Lanarkshire Express Cup - originally the Coatbridge Express Cup, once the Lanarkshire Consolation Cup, or so it seems - but there's none, presumably Brian doesn't have enough results to justify dedicating it a page. This was the 'second' local cup for the Lanarkshire clubs from Victorian times until the 1930s.

Apparently the competition began in 1891-92 - an offer from the Coatbridge Express to donate the trophy having been accepted at the Lanarkshire FA on 31st March 1891. However, results appear from at least 2 seasons prior to that. There also seems to be a gap from the turn of the century - was it temporarily replaced by, or even became, the Lanarkshire League?

I once read somewhere that the trophy still resides in the Cliftonhill boardroom.

Anyway, it seems a bit of a shame to have this tournament missing when so many others are on SFHA. From an internet search, the season-by-season pages on SHFA, and the Hamilton Academical history book (which unfortunately doesn't give the numbers of each round!), I've been able to piece together these results. Can anyone add more?

I'm currently reviewing the pre WWI site content and have uncovered numerous new details for many of the senior competitions of that era. I'm holding back on posting this on the site until the New Year as my PC is playing silly beggars and I'm getting a spanking new one from the missus for Crimbo! As this post is specifically looking for additional Express Cup details though, I'll post updates of that here for the time being.

Excellent stuff. As I alluded, it seems a bit of a shame to have the Lanarkshire Express Cup missing when the SFHA has grown to include so many of the other 'second' local tournaments like the Wemyss Cup, Dunedin Cup, South Western Cup, Renfrewshire Victoria Cup, etc., and charity cups.

Looking forward to the new content!!

HJ mentioned that there wasn't a page for the Express Cup. I did make one up for the site a while back but after being sidetracked, I forgot to upload it to the site! It can be accessed at http://scottish-football-historical-arc ... expresscup , but this will obviously be superceded by the above amendments. :oops:

Motherwell v Hamilton was 27th Apr 1925
