10th May 1910
Scottish Football Association – Annual Meeting
A motion made by the new vice-president on behalf of the Morton F.C. had for its object the reduction of the number of qualifying clubs entitled to take part in the Scottish Cup competition, from sixteen to fourteen, was responsible for a lot of discussion, which led to the old story of city v country being revived. Mr Tom White (Celtic) said he spoke as a representative of Glasgow, in asking the Association to carry the alteration. It would be to the benefit of the clubs in the Qualifying Cup competition were the First League clubs deleted, because they on many occasions spoiled the chances of clubs who might otherwise win the cup. It was an opportunity for the Association to show that they were willing to work hand in glove with the League. Mr Atherley, of Renton, moved the previous question, and after many of the members has aired their views, this was carried, and the qualifiers scored once more. Two of the  League clubs will therefore have to go through the probationary stage.

It was decided that the exempted clubs from the Qualifying Cup competition next season be:- Dundee, Clyde, Hibernian, and Celtic, as semi-finalists in last season’s cup competition; Heart of Mid-Lothian, Third Lanark, Partick Thistle, Queen’s Park, St Mirren, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen, Falkirk, Rangers, Airdrieonians, Motherwell, Hamilton Academicals. There was a motion that Greenock Morton be voted on with the others, but this was defeated, and they and Port Glasgow, as the two lowest League clubs last season, will take part in the Qualifying Cup competition.
