I've just noticed that, on Sunday, Linlithgow Rose won the Junior Cup for the third time, beating Kelty Hearts in the final.

Can anybody tell me what the attendance was for this game ?.

In my schooldays, the Junior Cup Final was played at Hampden Park and always attracted huge crowds.

Thanks to Java for the link.

I've just dug out my programme for the 1960 ~ 61 final. Dunbar United v Cambuslang Rangers.

I can't find what the attendance was but it was a lot more than the 9000 this year's finalists attracted.

The record attendance for a JCF is 77,651 - 1951 Petershill v Irvine Meadow.

Those were the days .

I think that's such a shame. It would appear that football itself is still as popular and with constant concern over home grown talent, I wonder why the crowds are falling at events like this... huh.gif

The drop in attendance is because of the ground rules that are imposed now.before you could cram them in. In the 44/45 quarter final of the junior cup Pollok had 15000 in the ground, and the platform of pollokshaws east railway station was mobbed by people paying for a platform ticket and watched the match from there. I think the legal capacity for Newlands is 2000.

I think a combination of things has caused the dramatic drop in the fortunes of junior football [and not only junior football] in Scotland.

Quite apart from the changes in our lifestyle since the 50's which have made their own contribution, we've become seduced by the glamour of the English Premier League. It looks to me as though a lot of fams would rather stay at home and watch the superstars on TV than support the local teams.

Anybody back home got an idea as to what stage it is at, and who plays who in near future.
I loved going to watch those games, far more entertaining than some of the overpaid hasbeens that are playing in the SPL.

Mtchell, here is a link to the fixtures. Te cup games have been disrupted by the exceptionally bed weather, some teams didn't play for 11 weeks. I go to junior games rather than senior as, in my opinion, better value for money. Sadly my team ( not Ashfield) went out in an early round.

Thanks for the info Irrie.
Boness, they were a good side many years ago, I would back them.
