Longest Gap between Scottish Cup appearances

Post by HibeeJibee » Sat Oct 28, 2017 6:11 pm

Mid Annandale will qualify for 2018-19's Scottish Cup if they beat Tynecastle in the South & East of Scotland Cup-Winners' Shield next month.

They last featured in 1930-31... 88yrs prior.

Anyone know what the longest 'gap' between appearances is?

Except that the present M/A are different from the old SFL club, they disbanded in 1935. The current club were formed in 1958. Sorry HJ

Ah, fair enough. That said it's increasingly 'complex' nowadays with clubs going bust 'n reforming, others appropriating histories, and so on.

Anyway basic question stands.

Can't see Mid Annandale beating Tynecastle, but in any case I think Bonnyrigg Rose may have the record.
They featured in Victorian times and have obviously qualified quite recently by winning the East Region Super League.
