Cancelled games
This is a bit of an after-thought page, somewhere to place our games which are no longer under investigation on What was the score, date or venue? It'll save us from re-searching in vain again! Being an after-thought, the list is very much embryonic. The 20-team First Division in 1939-40 was, of course, abandoned after 5 games were played. The 38-game fixture-list was traditionally out before a ball was kicked out. Who can supply the dated list for those 33 cancelled games? If anyone has any new additions for the list, please get in touch.

Sat-10-Dec-1881 Partick Thistle vs. Clarkston (Friendly)
GEP, on Friday, 9th December, 1881, wrote “Tomorrow's Football… Partick Thistle v Clarkston at Whiteinch”. At first we could find no subsequent trace of this fixture, but it seems to have been cancelled due to the weather, as we suspected. We have no reported games for 3 consecutive December Saturdays; the 10th, 17th or 24th. The answer to this dilemma was found in the DRV (12th December 1881) which reported: “In consequence of the hard frost on Saturday in Glasgow all the matches under both Rugby and Association rules had to be abandoned.” We think we can be fairly confident in saying that by “abandoned” they mean that the games were “cancelled” and were non-starters.
Fri-01-Jan-1892 Glasgow Thistle vs. Partick Thistle (Friendly)
– The GEP (25/12/1891) reported: “Partick Thistle will play the Glasgow Thistle at Beechwood Park on New Year's day”. Despite extensive searching, no reports were to be found for this game. Although we haven't uncovered a statement of fact, everything points to the match having been cancelled. Glasgow Thistle went on tour down South and played at Middlesbrough (1st January 1892) and Sunderland (2nd January 1892). From the PTFC point of view, we note that our reserves played on both the 1st and 2nd of January, and that the first team also played on the Saturday 2nd January (a 3-1 defeat away to Rangers).
