CaMpbell ThoMSon'S MATCH OF THE OLD DAY.
Each week we take a step back in time and give you a match report from a game of yesteryear SUNDAY MAIL May 22, 1932 Glasgow Perthshire 2, Rob Roy 1 After 40 years of endeavour Glasgow Perthshire, at Firhill yesterday, won the Scottish Junior Cup at the expense of Kirkintilloch Rob Roy.
The Shire's success will be popular in junior circles, but at one time, Fulton, their left-back sustained a head injury in collision with Peter and had to be carried off. He was absent for about 15 minutes, and during that period the Glasgow team went through a very bad time.
Then to a rousing cheer, he returned, and was only a minute on the field when he was dashing over to shake hands with Corrance, who with a glorious shot, scored the goal that settled the issue.
In 23 minutes Rob Roy's outsideleft Peter ran to meet the ball and hit the leather with terrific force, giving McCulloch no chance.
With seven minutes to go to the interval, the Shire's Baggley, almost on the goal line, sent over a grounder. Lyon had McVicar covered, but he foozled the ball, and, three yards out, had the easiest of tasks to make it 1-1.
