You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

Things were going quite well after 75 minutes in Thistle's game against Cowlairs at Springburn on 8/10/1892. They had come from a goal down to be leading 3-1 when an injury to Stewart reduced them to 10 men and the roof fell in. Alliance League leaders Cowlairs went on to score 7 goals in the last 15 minutes to win 8-3. As the scribe in the "Airdrie and Coatbridge Advertiser" on 15/10 put it, " This, I fancy, is not very far outside of a record for fast scoring".
