The first members of of the SFA were Queens Park, Clydesdale, Vale of Leven, Dumbreck, Third lanark Rifle Volunteer Reserves, Eastern Granville and Rovers. Scottish football was formed in 1873.
In 1873 a cup meeting was begun, and its first winners were Queen's Park. Queen's Park was formed in 1867 which went on to dominate Scottish football until the club's amateur status ( which it still retains ) led to its eclipse in the inevitable trend towards professionalism.
In its heyday Queen's Park represented Scotland in the earliest internationals with England, played twice in the final of the ( English) FA cup in 1884 qnd 1885 and did not concede a goal in six years of domestic competetive football.
It was a during Queens Park cup tie with Preston North End in 1886 that a foul on the Queen's Park centre forward led to the offender, also a Scot having to be escorted from ground.
This incident produced the rift between the English and Scots FAs which resulted in the latter banning Scottish clubs from the English competition. a' declaration of independence which profoundly affected Scottish nationalism' (C Harvie).
Thereafter Queen's park gradually began to lose its pre-eminence in Scottish football, posibly because of its somewhat down-to-earth Rangers and, later Celtic.
Sorry to say Cathie nothing is mentioned of a Charles Campbell

There is a team photo of him here in this link taken in 1887, hope I can get it to work for you.
