Committee Meeting – Cup Exemptions
After several applications for extensions of the playing season for charity matches had been disposed of, a ballot was taken as to which clubs should be exempted from the Qualifying Cup Competition. The following clubs were nominated:- Celtic, Rangers, Port Glasgow, St Mirren, [semi-finalists] Heart of Midlothian, St Bernards, Clyde, Hibernians, Queen’s Park, Third Lanark, Greenock Morton, Dundee, Kilmarnock, Leith Athletic, Partick Thistle, Airdrieonians, East Stirlingshire, Raith Rovers, and Abercorn. Upon the ballot papers being adjudged it was found that the leading Scotch clubs had received 19 votes; Kilmarnock, Leith Athletic, and Partick Thistle, 13; that Airdrieonians and East Stirlingshire had tied for twelfth place on the list; and that Raith Rovers and Abercorn had been balloted out of the exempted lot. The chairman gave his casting vote to the Airdrieonians, and East Stirlingshire was therefore added to the refusal list.
