Re: The Secondary Schools Cup
There was a whole load of things we were told we couldn't get and couldn't do that's why there will be a festival of football held for Primary school kids.

Re: The Secondary Schools Cup
The schools cup trophy is in the museum at hampden donated by the schools cup committee when the original comp ended . Dont think the decision to do this involved Mr Peat but i stand to be corrected if wrong

Re: The Secondary Schools Cup
In the SFA\his defence (and I don't like doing it) the family who donated the cup for the original Schools Cup refused to allow us to use it when the current schools cup was announced, so it may be they are simply honouring their wishes.

Who the family are I’ve no idea.

Re: The Secondary Schools Cup
The proper Schools' cup was magic. It would be interesting to see some of the attendances for it and see how they cmpare to Airdrie's gates this season.

Re: The Secondary Schools Cup
I remember how excited I was to be getting changed in the Pavilion. It was a bit shabby though, all wooden cladding - definitely not the mid-80s chic that we were used to!
