    Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland.

    SV captains tossing. GV Celtic hopped jersey, kick-off. LV packed crowd. LV Celtic attacking, Martin deals comfortably with a shot, but as he runs through advancing Celtic players to clear he is bowled over, he hangs on to the ball and clears upfield. SV Aberdeen racing through with ball but are easily held and play is returned to the other end by a steady looking Celtic defence. SV Celtics right wing combining well are held up in the Aberdeen penalty area by strong tackling from Clunie who has dropped back to help the defence, his fellow inside forward Hamilton is also helping. Finally Aberdeen clear their lines with a hefty boot. LV Aberdeen attacking, Clunie receives, fires in a shot which goal keeper John Bonnar can only parry at the feet of Buckley, Buckley however cannot connect properly and his effort goes well wide. SCU boys in crowd. GV Celtic pressing. SV Fallon eludes Young and just as he is about to shoot, Martin dives at his feet and smothers the ball. LV crowd applauding. Half time - no score. SV Leggatt taking a corner, ball dances around the Celtic goal mouth until Bonnar dashes out of goal, falls over Clunie as the Aberdeen inside-left is going for the ball, but again the Celtic defence remains cool and work it out of their area by good cool football, and start an attack themselves. SCU crowd. LV Mochan who has run over to the right wing squares the ball for Young to deflect it into the net, pan players congratulating. SCU crowd cheering.

    SV Aberdeen fighting back. LV Buckley racing through and pushing ball advancing goal keeper to equalise. LV crowd applauding. SV Aberdeen still pressing with the half backs well up into the attack but Glenn finds two Celtic players too much to beat, and Celtic are away on an attack. SV Celtic force a corner. SV crowd. SV Mochan taking corner, Martin goalie, runs out to collect, drops ball, but falls on it and scrambles out through a ring of players. SV Martin clearing upfield. LV Celtic forwards hanging on to the ball a little too long, are dispossessed by incisive tackling, and Aberdeen bear down on Celtic. SCU crowd. SV Buckley racing through with ball, hits side netting and misses reasonable chance. LV crowd. LV Celtic attack, lead to goal. SV Fallon, Celtic, scoring. GV packed stand. Celtic wins Scottish Football Cup Final by beating Aberdeen 2-1. SV Jack Stein collecting Scottish cup, receives winners medal, and holds cup aloft to crowd.
