the decisive game…


Tue-17-Aug-1926 [a] L0-1 King's Park (Stirling Charity Cup Final)

Thistle had the edge for the first 15 minutes but found the home defence a tough proposition. KP got into the game and hit the post. A clearance off the line denied Thistle the opener just on h-t. A drive (67) won the cup. Gibbs got his fingers to the shot but couldn't keep it out. Earlier, Torbet had missed a penalty.
