FINAL TIE FOR THE SCOTTISH ASSOCIATION CHALLENGE CUP
NEVER in the history of football contests in Scotland has the interest in the final contest for this cup been so keenly manifest as in the concluding tie played on Saturday on the ground of the Rangers Club, Kinning Park, Glasgow. A fortnight before, it may be remembered, the Queen’s Park and Dumbarton Clubs played off for the possession of the cup, the result being a win for the former by two goals to one, but as the Dumbarton members protested against the decision on the ground that the spectators, in breaking over the ropes protecting the playing ground, interfered with their chances of winning, it was decided by the committee of the association that the contest should be played over. Every precaution, therefore, was taken to have the match of Saturday decided on the fairest terms; extra roping was brought into requisition; the corners of the field were strongly barricaded, and a large staff of police was employed to keep the spectators in their proper places. These precautions were all required, as upwards of 15,000 people witnessed the game, every position from every quarter surrounding the enclosure being occupied by eager crowds. The grand stand was crammed an hour before the game commenced, but the committee wisely resolved to allow no one to take up standing room in front, and by this arrangement the chances of interference with the play were reduced to a minimum. Punctually to time both teams marched on to the field, and they were loudly cheered by their friends. When they took up their positions they stood motionless for some minutes, the spectators wondering all the while at the solemn attitudes assumed by the players. Perched on an eminence at the corner of the field, however, an enterprising local photographer was busy arranging his apparatus for taking “ a striking likeness of the group.” and when the secret ran round the field the players were chaffed unmercifully by the funny men of the crowd. The Dumbarton captain having kicked off the ball play was entered upon with great spirit by the Queen’s Park forwards, and in a minute the leather was seen popping about the strangers’ goal in dangerous ways, but it was kicked over the cross-bar by an over-anxious player of the Glasgow team. Continuing their assaults, however, the Queen’s Park men peppered away at the Dumbarton posts, but the ball was again kicked over the cross-bar. In the succeeding attempt the Dumbarton goal-keeper had to use his hands to prevent the ball from going between his posts, but this he did cleverly. In fact, he was called upon twice in rapid succession to employ the same tactics, but still he responded successfully. Ker tried to send the leather through by a rapid kick, but the attempt failed, and the kick from goal relieved the Dumbarton backs for a minute or two. In ten minutes after the start, however, Fraser and Smith manipulated the ball so nicely that it was brought down to the very face of the Dumbarton goal, and the latter player getting the leather at his foot, shot for goal neatly, and the ball passed through amid ringing cheers. The Dumbarton players were not long in having a turn, however, but although they made several plucky attempts, the ball could not be got between the posts of the Queen’s Park goal. Fraser and Ker were seen passing on the leather beautifully, and when the latter got within a dozen yards of the Dumbarton goal he centred to Smith, who again shied with great judgment, and sent the ball through for the second time. Following up this score, Ker, having the ball centred to him, shot it through – three goals to none. Nettled at these reverses the Dumbarton players went at it with a vengeance, and Lindsay made a good effort to lower the Queen’s Park goal, but the attempt failed, and half-time was called just as the Glasgow keeper was kicking from goal. After the ball was set rolling in the second half the Dumbarton men crowded round the Glasgow goal, and shot for the posts, but Rowna was able to catch the ball and returned it to play. He was unable to stop a well-aimed shot by Meikleham, who, amid great excitement, sent the ball spinning between the Queen’s Park posts. The Dumbarton forwards continued their attacks again and again, but their over-anxiety spoilt all their efforts, and many good chances were lost through want of judgment. Towards the close of the match the Queen’s Park players again showed superior passing and dribbling, and had decidedly the best of the game, but they could not manage to increase their score, and one of the hardest-fought, if not very scientific, games played in Glasgow this season was brought to a close with the decision in favour of the Queen’s Park by three goals to one.
