From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Event1874–75 Scottish Cup
Date10 April 1875
VenueHampden Park, Glasgow
RefereeA. Campbell (Clydesdale)

The 1875 Scottish Cup Final was the second final of the Scottish Cup and the final of the 1874–75 Scottish Cup, the most prestigious knockout football competition in Scotland. The match took place at Hampden Park on 10 April 1875 and was contested by Queen's Park and Renton.[1]

Queen's Park won the match 3–0 with goals from Angus MacKinnon, Thomas Highet and Billy MacKinnon.


For defending champions Queen's Park, this was their second consecutive appearance in the final following the creation of the competition the previous season. Renton reached the final for the first time.

The teams had met in the Scottish Cup once before. In the 1873–74 semi-final, Queen's Park beat Renton 2–0 at Hampden Park on 13 December 1873.[2]

Route to the final

Both clubs entered the competition in the first round. Neither club won all its matches before the final at the first attempt. Queen's Park needed two replays in the semi-final to eliminate Clydesdale, the team they defeated in the previous final. Renton also required a replay at the semi-final stage to see off Dumbarton.

Defending champions Queen's Park reached the semi-finals with wins over fellow Glasgow clubs Western and West End at home before receiving a walkover in the quarter-finals against Rovers. This set up a replay of the 1874 final against Clydesdale. The first two matches finished in draws before Queens defeated their rivals 1–0 in a second replay at Kinning Park.[3]


Round Opposition Score
First round Blythswood w/o
Second round Helensburgh 2–0
Quarter-final Eastern 1–0
Semi-final Dumbarton 0–0
Semi-final replay Dumbarton 1–0

Renton had a similarly simple run to the semi-finals. After receiving a walkover against Blythswood on the first run, Renton defeated Helensburgh and Eastern at home. In the semi-finals, Renton face Dunbartonshire rivals Dumbarton who they eliminated 1–0 after a replay.[3]



Renton won the toss and elected to play with the slight breeze to their backs. In the first half, Queen's Park soaked up pressure from a Renton side who elected to play the ball long and tackle hard. Despite this, they were unable to breakdown Queen's Park who created chances for Jamie Weir, Harry McNeil and Tom Highet. However, referee A. Campbell ended the half with the game scoreless.[3][4]

After the interval, a change of ends saw the wind now in Renton's faces. Queen's Park were on the front foot but couldn't find a breakthrough and the spectators had to wait until the last 15 minutes for the three goals. Angus MacKinnon opened the scoring from a Weir corner before, five minutes later, McNeil ran forward and set up Highet for 2–0. Shortly before full time, Billy McKinnon sealed the win with a fine shot.[3][5]

Edinburgh newspaper The Scotsman reported after the game that the match was "an exceptionally rough one" with "charging which seems to be the speciality of the Renton men".[5]
