Photo Of The Day: Celtic Win Their First Ever Scottish Cup (1892)

Today’s photo of the day comes from season 1891/92, when Celtic won their first ever Scottish Cup. Since then, the competition has been one of the club’s favourite – with a further 39 triumphs in the competition taking place until 2019/20.

These men led the way and should never be forgotten. The image of the starting line up on Scottish Cup Final day 1892 can be seen below:

The men depicted are:

Reynolds and Doyle;
Maley, Kelly and Gallacher;
McCallum, Brady, Dowds, McMahon, and Campbell

Together, they defeated Queen’s Park by five goals to one. Celtic’s goals came from McMahon (2), Campbell (2), and an own goal.

Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest.
