Introduction

Forever and ever, we'll follow the Jags, the Partick Thistle, the Harry Wraggs,
For we have a promise, that we shall fulfill - to bring the Scottish Cup back up to Maryhill.

Now we can't be quite sure when our fathers or grandfathers first made that promise, but what we do know is that still we ache for the second coming of that beautiful old trophy, 100 years on from our sole success.

Unravelling the legendary historic journey, we'll uncover the background stories, get to know the players and discover which national records we broke along the way.

Not so much a cup campaign as an odyssey” ~ David Ross (Gaffers, 2011)

This is the story of how the Cup was won, a herculean struggle, the likes of which had never been seen before in the National Cup - and has never been seen since.
