You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

When Hibs beat Thistle in the Scottish Cup 4th round match on 18/3/1924 it continued a run of cup ties in which neither team had managed to get through against the other at the first attempt. It was the 4th time the clubs had been drawn together and at that point the ties had required 1904/05 1 replay, 1905/06 2 replays, 1920/21 2 replays and 1923/24 2 replays - a total of 11 matches. Indeed, the clubs have been drawn together 12 times in the Scottish Cup and 6 ties have gone to one (or two) replays.
