You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

On 2/2/1889 Albion Rovers reserves travelled to Govan to play Elder Park. On arrival they discovered that the Elder Park team were nowhere to be seen. Their journey wasn't entirely wasted however. The "Lanarkshire Upper Ward Examiner" reported that on their way back they "dropped in" at Inchview and quickly arranged a match against Thistle's Swifts. They lost 6-3. Can't have been much of a crowd!
