The Little Report Referee Dale closed a hectic Partick Thistle - Celtic struggle after an hour's play. A section of the crowd howled in protest but majority accepted the decision sportingly. The score at the time was 1-1, Murphy for Celtic and Newall for Thistle being the marksmen (Dundee Courier). Numerous papers reported the abandonment but none gave a reason (possibly due to wartime restricts on mentioning weather conditions - although the Daily Record may offer a clue). “Brimming with energy and skill…although there was a lot of skidding and miskicking” (Daily Record)
