HEART OF MIDLOTHIAN
Duff; Kirk and McKenzie; Mackay, Glidden, and Cumming, Young, Conn, Bauld, Wardhaugh. and Crawford. Referee - R. H. Davidson (Airdrie.)
"A dream of 50 years has been realised by Heart of Midlothian. At last the Scottish Cup has been won, to erase the sufferings of half a century, and if the search has been long, there is no shadow of doubt that victory in Saturdays final at Hampden Stadium, Glasgow went to the better side.
There have been more exciting finals, but I doubt if there ever has been a more popular result. Down the years Hearts have been welcome visitors at all grounds in .Scotland, acclaimed for the skill and ability of their sides, yet always flattering to deceive. At least until Saturdayand the hoodoo was finally laid by a display of real fighting spirit at a time when it was most needed."
